Elisabeth Chalet has been serving the Fraser Valley for 30 years with delicious Schnitzels, Steaks, Bratwurst and fresh Seafood. Our Chefs are European trained and have been working with us for 30 years! "Consistency is our trademark."Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Service was very good, our meals arrived at our table fairly quickly after we ordered, not a long wait like some other restaurants, food was very good, would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice place to eat on a special occasion."

  • "We hadn't been there in over 3 years. Pleasantly surprised. No longer rushed as in the past. Good food and generous portions."

  • "Elizabeth's has it all and very much up there in the 'fine dining' with "relaxed feel" category, with the added bonus of making their customers feel special whether you are celebrating an event with a crowd or just dropping in for dinner. The staff is very professional and treat you with respect, courtesy, friendliness and all around add a personal touch to your dining experience. Not to mention the food is always prepared to perfection and tastes great and the service is top notch. Also, I feel I should mention that you get all this at a very reasonable price. I have been going here for many years and honestly have enjoyed each visit. I plan to have many more meals here in the future."

  • "The service was great as was the wait staff. Food was piping hot when delivered and the portions were generous. Would definitely go back again. We went for a special occasion but would go again just because we can."

  • "We had a wonderful experience at Elizabeth's Chalet - I was a little sceptical about reserving on-line with a few requests - but I didn't need to worry as everything went without a hitch, food was tasty and lots of it, the servers were very attentive to our needs, quiet music in the background, as we were a large group we were never waiting long for food, drinks etc., I would definitely dine there again."

  • "I think that waiting for 1.5 hours to get a meal is ridiculously slow. The schnitzels were recommended by the server but they were just average - nothing to rave about. I later heard from someone that they also had to wait for about 1.5 hours to get their meal so it seems this is the norm for this restaurant. I doubt we will be back."

  • "Some of the menu items were very tasty and some only so so. We missed the prime rib not being on the menu."

  • "The food was excellent, the service was great and I cannot think of a better place to take that "first" date. I did and it was perfect. The table in the corner, a beautiful setting and quiet enough that we could talk and get to know each other. I will definitely be going back there for that "second" date."

  • "I've only ever ordered the Schnitzel (which is pork, not veal). I've also learnt to order the smaller portion which is still a huge amount of food. The full portion almost covers a large dinner plate, accompanied by roasted potato, veggies, and a German red cabbage dish. I ordered mine with the crab, asparagus and a delicious hollandaise sauce. There's many ways on the menu to order Schnitzel....just pick your favorite and enjoy."

  • "An excellent selection of schnitzel and other German specialties. Unlike at many other German restaurants I've tried over the years, the food was not overcooked. The vegetables and spaetzle that accompanied my combination dinner were tender and very flavorful. The schnitzel was cooked perfectly, the accompanying sauce was really tasty, and the portions were just right. The restaurant has an old-fashioned dining room that suits the cuisine, but the tables are placed a little to close to one-another. We were there on quiet Tuesday night, so it wasn't a problem overhearing the neighbors, but it could be at a busier time. The staff were very welcoming and professional. Check it out if you like German/central European food!"

  • "This is the last German restaurant in the Vancouver are and lower mainland which is quite sad. All the other great German/Swiss restaurants have closed due to retirement. However, the Elisabeth's Chalet still has the great Schnitzels which is the reason I go there. The staff is still the same, waiter and waitresses which is a good sign. Food is awesome. The only thing was that there was a huge group in the restaurant and even though we had a reservation - we did not get a table at the window but close to the washrooms which is not something I do like. So when you have a reservation made about 2 weeks in advance, they should give you a nice table. Otherwise everything else was great as usual."

  • "We were celebrating my wife's birthday with 11 friends. The staff was very hospitable and our server was very attentive. Everyone went out of their way to make a special occassion very special. The food was outstanding and the ambiance was perfect. We have always celebrated our special occassions at Elizabeth's and have never been disappointed. Needless to say we will continue to do do."

  • "We went to celebrate my son's grad. He really enjoyed the Schnitzel Charlotte, my mother and I both had Prime Rib. It was nice to be offered a 6 oz cut rather than the usual massive cut that's just too big to eat. It was no problem to get spatzel instaed of garlic mashed and everything was really tasty."

  • "I was there with a fairly large group and there was a mix of opinions in regards to the food. The majority of us were quite happy with their meals. My mom really appreciates that some menu items are available in senior's portions. I found that the wait staff had improved since the last few times I've been there."

Of course there are other very good menu items to enjoy so if you like German/Austrian type of food this is the place for you. The atmosphere is warm and cozy and the service is very good too."

  • "We have always enjoyed Elizabeth's Chalet. The owners Franz and Elizabeth were gracious hosts and dinner was always superb. Things went radically downhill after the owners retired and we had 2 meals there that were less than great. We had prime rib there and it was cooked to shoe leather. However on this occaision Franz was back and even thought the staff were complaining he was back service was up to its usual superb level and the food was excellent. As long as this level of service and quality of food is maintained I would recommend it as an eating delight."

  • "We have been to Elisabeth's Chalet many times over the years for both lunch and dinner and it remains constant. The food and service is consistently excellent,(their schnitzel is wonderful) the ambience is perfect for a quiet romantic dinner or lunch or dinner with friends."

  • "Experience started with them accepting a reservation for a day they were not open, they then called to cancel. Upon arrival not asked if we had a reservation - just seated at closest to the door table. We had checked the lunch menu on line but when we asked the server we were told there was no lunch menu on line. Schnitzel was luke warm and tough and the server brought the wrong salad. The price on the bill did not match the on line menu prices. Upon returning home I checked the online menu and phoned the restaurant about the price discrepancy. I was given an apology for the service and the phone number of the owner - I called and he did return my call and said he would get back to me and make whatever adjustments necessary - still waiting."

  • "My Mom's schnitzel was so tough I had to help her cut it. My Dad's vegetables were so cold that the butter he put on them would not melt. He asked the server to bring some hot vegetables and she was more than willing. Too bad about the tough meat. Mom took most of it home but I'm sure she will feed it to the garburator. My husband had the fish combo special and the cod was over cooked. They served it with rice instead of garlic mashed as was described by the server. They brought the proper side when my husband brought it to her attention. All in all, not the best dining out experience."
