What an aweful experience. After frequenting this establishment for many years we had the displeasure of encountering the awfully rude and arrogant owners. They could not care any less about their patrons if they tried. Will never return to this place. After making a very...simple request we were told to simply leave if we want to..... what hospitality. I see many posts of this nature about the owners. Rather avoid the sub standard food and disgusting attitudes and go elsewhere.More

My visit to Roter Hahn restaurant left a sour taste in my mouth, and it's safe to say that it will be my last. Despite a promising menu and the charm of a German-themed establishment, the overall experience was marred by subpar service, a limited...beer selection, and unsatisfactory food quality. Upon making a reservation for a party of 10, I was informed that the kitchen would close at 7 pm and the restaurant at 10 pm. However, by 7:30 pm, we were abruptly told to place our last drink orders as the establishment was closing soon. This rushed approach to closing time was not only inconvenient but also disrespectful to customers who had made prior arrangements for a later dining experience. The most disappointing aspect of our evening was the beer selection—or lack thereof. Despite boasting an extensive menu of German beers, the reality was quite different. For the second time visiting, several beers listed on the menu were unavailable. To add to the disappointment, the quality of the food was far from satisfactory. Two members of our party ordered the eisbein, only to be served a dish that was burnt and as hard as a rock. The unpleasant taste and texture were so off-putting that they couldn't even finish their meals and had to send them back.More

Their service was poor. The waiter was extremely rude with an attitude. Food was reasonable and no stock of certain drinks.

We went for a hearty meal and it didn't disappoint! We loved the German atmosphere (very authentic) and the food was delicious. We had one of the platters to share with breads, pickles and sausages and it was a great starter for 2 ppl sharing....The eisben was also very good, with traditional accompaniments. Nice selection of beers and service was prompt and attentive. A very nice experience, would go again! Also, try their red onion marmalade; it's delicious! Bought some from their deli the next day!More

We visited Clarens years ago, and ate a a German restaurant that we loved, so were hopeful to find it again. Which we did, different location but same delicious German fare. The menu had a great selection of dishes to choose from, and we stuck...with the most traditional items. Yum. Yum. Yum. They certainly did not disappoint, and we happily over ate! Our waitron Mafokeng was a star. Super attentive, friendly and a pleasure to chat with. If you’re after homey, comfy, delicious, you will not go wrong here.More

Nice Resturant, too bad that the beer I wanted to order you don’t have, so what’s the point? You would think the bear minimum was a keepsake my stock of what’s on the drinks menu.

Spotted this establishment out the window of a neighboring restaurant and decided to pop in for a snack the next day. Very cute traditional type German restaurant and deli with an extensive menu and bar. We sat on the deck in the sunshine and had...a delicious cappuccino and we shared a curry wurst which was very yummy. Simon our waiter was super and met our every need. We also walked away with a decadent chocolate biscuit square and lots of other deli goodies. Definitely worth a visit.More

Found the place by accident, if I have criticism it would be that it is not obvious to find from the road with little signage. Really MASSIVE selection of very good Dutch, Belgium and German beers. Pair this with a huge menu of very tasty,...mainly German fare, it really is worth the visit. I will most certainly include this on every visit I have to Clarens.More

We have frequented this restaurant on many an occasion and still find it to be one of the best in Clarens. Staff were attentive and friendly and the food was well prepared and presented. Prices don't seem to have changed much since our last visit...about eight months ago ( the portions seem smaller, though ). Best German restaurant outside Johannesburg. Totally recommend it!More

We always loved this restaurant. They have a vast selection of the best Belgium and local beers, but for anything else it's total chaos! The waiters are not trained well. There are not enough waiters. We waited forever for everything we ordered. 35 minutes for...our apfelstrudel. Food is just ok. Thanks for Petrus our waiter, he really tried, but alone he is not going to win this. There were insanely huge mistakes on our bill. Undercharged us by about R680. This is a popular restaurant and they have everything to make it a success, but the owners have to take some drastic measures to restore the restaurant to it's former glory.More
