This place was recommended by our host and it didn’t disappoint. We arrived the first day of a new menu and were the first to try the picked fish, which was delicious! We also had the smoked pork chop and sauerkraut. Both meals were excellent. The German beer went down a treat and our waiter was extremely helpful and spoke excellent English.

I stayed just around the corner from here, and wasn't planning to go to a German restaurant while in Valpo, but it was the only place open on New Years, and it was such a pleasant surprise! While busy and a little (understandably) understaffed, it was sooooo good, and the staff (1 chef & 1 other) was working so hard. I had the pork chop and sauerkraut and it was soooo delicious. It was kind of fun trying another type of cuisine and seeing their take on it, which was perfect. I'm glad it worked out this way. I'm not a beer drinker (as they were out of most of everything from NYE the night before), but they brew 2 of their beers which were really good too!

We stumbled upon this German bar and restaurant while touring the city. Unfortunately we had just had lunch elsewhere or we would have loved to have tried the delicious looking (yet limited) menu of German delicacies. They had two locally produced German beers on tap. One is all year and one is seasonal. I had a pint of a cold flavoursome weissbier. The staff - Louis and Max - were very friendly and told us about the owner and creator of the beer. But also shared local information with us which was very helpful. Locals came in to drink and eat and you could tell this was a friendly welcoming local restaurant which was loved by its customers. Highly recommend!

I am German and can confirm that the food and beer tasted very good and were authentic. We ate “Käß-Spätzle” and “Kassler”. Both were great.
Max, the waiter, is very friendly, helpful and quick. Definitely can recommend this place for everyone who want to find a piece of Germany in Chile.

We happened onto this place on one of our walks around the city. As we always tend to be on the early side when it comes to eating, the owner was just opening up when we arrived. She was so nice and hospitable. We ordered a couple beers which were refreshing and flavorful then decided on a couple dishes. The food was some of the best we have had in Chile after being here for over a year. Simple preparation however seasoned well and cooked perfectly, we were really impressed. It is not often you can find reasonably priced food which also has good service and ambiance. And of course good beer! .
