“A really tasty meal & very welcoming owners”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

Yes, it's not authentic Catalonian cuisine. The owners are German & specialise in schnitzel. But the food is really excellent, and the owners, fluent it seems in many languages, are really friendly and professional (and very nice with children.) The restaurant is in a slightly odd location in a small shopping precinct, but well worth seeking out. Very reasonably priced for the quality & quantity of the food on offer. Highly recommended!

“Delicious!”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

Great, fantastic and delicious!
We have been there for two times within one week because it was so great :-)
We had steaks with an excellent pepper sauce (for us the best steaks in Begur!).
The service was just perfect and the price is very reasonable.
Inside the restaurant the ambience was cozy and with lots of creative details! The bread was served in especially shaped old LPs and the lights are designed out of trumpets. Highly recommended!

“A little bit of Germany in Begur”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

It's maybe a little strange to be eating German food on the Costa Brava, but the dishes we had were excellent, and authentic. The waitress/ manager/ owner? is amazing. She takes orders and makes recommendations in multiple languages, and positively runs between the tables and the kitchen.

The only slight downside is the restaurant's location in a shopping mall of sorts, which prevents you sitting outside on a nice night.

In summary, excellent food, excellent service, good value.

“Excellent Meal at an Exceedingly Fair Price”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

This restaurant may not be a gourmet restaurant but for a vacationer looking for a excellent meal at a exceedingly fair price it cannot be beat. The host/server was also exceedingly freindly.

“A little bit of Germany in Spain.”
Reviewed 24 May 2013

This restaurant was exceptionally good value and the food and welcome were great. The manageress was very welcoming, spoke excellent English and was very helpful, but the house wine (red) should be avoided - go for the German beer instead.
We had schnitzels and they were delicious and the portions were very good. You don't leave this place hungry.
