Good food, GREAT service
We wen't to the Haus to have dinner with some family that we hadn't seen in over a decade, and it was so nice to chat over a meal as good as this. Also, the service was exceptional! Our server appreciated that we hadn't seen each other in a long time and gave us space to chat and catch up.
I had the cordon bleu champignon schnitzel, and it was everything! sooooo good!

We have been coming here regularly. It is a comfortable place to eat.
Our server was excellent. The food was good, especially if you like schnitzel. Definitely a German influence, throughout.
Would recommend for families for a nice meal out.

Wonderful schnitzel haus
The atmosphere is quaint and old world. The selection of schnitzel is amazing, from traditional, to cordon bleu, red wine and mushroom sauce, Hawaii pineapple, and even unbreaded for gluten free requests.
The service is very nice too, an all round pleasant meal you can top off with a freshly made Black Forest cake that day!

A fabulous Schnitzel menu, a warm Bavarian decor and great service. The portions are substantial but not over the top in price. The combo (schnitzel, beef rouladen, bratwurst, served with spätzle) is incredible. Even the veggies are delicious. Free parking behind is a plus.

It was amazing! The food was authentic, well made (in house) and tasted just like home :) Quite pricey but definitely worth it for the quality and amount of food we got. The beer was delicious and the overall atmosphere amazing. Our waiter was polite, quick and always there when needed! Would definitely go again!

Still the finest Rack of Lamb
Still the finest Rack of Lamb I have ever tasted. Schnitzel was superb and the service as usual was outstanding.

We have gone to this restaurant
We have gone to this restaurant often. The service & food are excellent. We used a entertainment coupon without any problems.
I would just recommend they have a bigger selection of red wines by the glass.
6/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
We love this place. Food is always perfect, including the veggies. Old world ambiance. Generous portions. We're vegetarians but most of our friends are not, and we're all happy with our respective selections here (they offer several vegetarian schnitzel dishes). Reservations recommended. Cheryl is our favourite waitress.

We have been coming to this
We have been coming to this restaurant for many years. The food is still as good as it was years ago!! But I think that the decore could use a bit of renovating, as that has remained the same for at least 20t years.

Hail to the Old Bavaria Haus
The service was excellent - warm, friendly, helpful, inviting - as if you are an honoured member of the family. Food was very good - schnitzel perfectly cooked, vegetables steamed and vibrantly coloured with a little firmness to them. Portions were very large. Even though we were full, we still managed to eat every bite of the four different desserts we tried.
The deck is very inviting - enclosed by green plants and flowering, well maintained hanging baskets.
This is clearly a neighbourhood gem - and a place where people come to celebrate anniversaries and special occasions.
Strongly recommend it to others.

Food, Fantastic, Fun Service
Took my Mom for her B-Day. The girls spit a meal each and had the house salad (the house salad is amazing). We loved the food, ice cold beer, and the free cake they have my Mom....so nice.
The service was excellent ... blonde lady that said she's been there for years and years was high energy and fun....would recommend.

Great comfort food!
Old Bavaria Haus is a great restaurant for family occasions--we go for birthdays mainly, as we have German born relatives and we all love the food. Their schnitzel is very good-crispy on the outside and tender inside, as it should be. The rouladen are also excellent, as are the spatzle and red cabbage. I had the black forest cake there once and it was excellent.
We will be going back for years to come. Highly recommended.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Reliable, good food. Nothing fancy, just good honest food at a fair price.
Kitschy decor that works. A great place for family, friends.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
From the ease of booking our reservation, (online), through to the reception and display of professionalism of serving and kitchen staff, our dining experience was most enjoyable. Any questions about the menu, refills of water or bread were promptly addressed. We had the Escargot as an appetizer, and their presentation was a very nice introduction of this fare to my friend, had never tasted them. The meals were of a nice portion, the red cabbage a first for me was nicely done and the schnitzel was very tender.
A very nice dining experience and I would highly recommend The Bavaria Haus to anyone wanting a pleasant, affordable and satisfying meal in a pleasant setting. We will again!

WE had our first date there just over 9 yrs. ago and decided it was time to return. The meal was great.

Wonderful dinner with family, exceptional Germany food, ate more than I should have but it was sooooo good I couldn't stop. Will defiantly go again soon!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our family has been coming to this restaurant for years. The food is always good and plentiful. Service is with a smile and good cheer.

Ja Wohl! The great Bavarian house!
If you want a great place to put your lederhosen and dirndl on and fine dine with German cuisine, then I recommend you go to the old Bavarian house. It was fun to be greeted in German and speak German with the owner. The food was great and the Krombacher beer was flowing! It reminded my wife and I when we lived in Germany. Great place for a special occasion and also if you want a romantic dinner! Everyone needs to bit up the old Bavarian restaurant for dinner!
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
It had been several years since we dined here and we were willing to give it another try. The first thing we noticed when we arrived was the sea of grey. I thought there was an early bird special or something. I know that New West has a large population of seniors....but there are lots of younger people too.
The food was great...the goulash is excellent! everyone at the table had a different schnitzel and there were no complaints at all. Everything tasted very authentic and home made.

We went there for a birthday dinner. We sat in front of the front window. The waiter was quick to greet us and tell us the daily special. There were only 2 people working, but they were able to service and attend to every table. The food was good, as the four of us got a schnitzel dinner. The seafood toppings were properly prepared. We were too full to try their wonderful dessert menu.

Excellent Schnitzel. We have been looking for a gem like this and finally found it.

I had been to this restaurant before and always find it the same pleasent, smiling waiters and excellent food.

We have dined here on many occasions and have found the overall experience to be very enjoyable. Staff is very accommodating to our needs and the food is wonderful. This will remain one of our favorite spots.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
yummy food every time!
This is a great place for consistently good food, good service, and nice atmosphere and decor.
We've never had a bad meal here! Highly recommend it.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Worth a trip
We drive up from Seattle every now and then to have GREAT German food. We need our fix occasionally and this is the place to go. There's another place in Harrison Hot Springs, but Vancouver area offer more to do on a weekend..
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our server was very informative and attentive with a great sense of humour. We'll be back!
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
The schnitzel is always tastes great! I tried a new special and loved it. Food at the Bavaria Haus is reliable and delicious!
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
They have a great red cabbage! Schnitzel night on Wednesday is a great deal and you will enjoy. Give it a try'
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
a satisfying experience
The specialty is schnitzel. There are generous portions of good comfort food. We have been to this restaurant numerous times and it is always consistently good. There is a separate room for groups and when I have used this room I found the food good and the service outstanding.

Old Bavaria Haus
Excellent food, good service, nice atmosphere. Gets crowded during peak hours and can be noisy then. Often used for family events, so there was a baby crying in the other dining room, which means to get the most out of the atmosphere it would be best to go early or a bit later than peak dinner hour. Some guests dressed, others in jeans; however, that doesn't detract from the food, which is always beautifully presented, and always enough left over for next day's lunch.
This restaurant also makes itself available for certain events put on by local charities, so the proprietors give back to the community. A local business worthy of support on every level.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We keep going back!
We've been here several times, introduced friends and family, and keep coming back. After having travelled to Germany, their food is pretty authentic. Their Wiener schnitzel is always crispy and their rouladen comes with the pickle spear; great portion sizes - we never leave there hungry. We recently travelled to Leavenworth, and this place is way better - hands down!
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Was so good I came back!
This is my second visit to the OLD BAVARIA HAUS and it was just as good as the first time. Servings are large, food is very good and the service is great.

Had a Happy Birthday Dinner - Again
As always we enjoyed our meal at one of our favourite restaurants. Due to scheduling conflicts we had to visit on Wednesday, which is their special pricing evening. Consequently it was quite busy and a tad noisy. However the service was great, our food arrived in good time and we were never rushed. Still recommend this unique little gem in New Westminster - worth the drive.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
My husband and I lived within walking distance of the Bavaria Haus for years and only went once. After we moved, we regretted not going more often. When a friend was visiting from out of town, we felt that Bavaria Haus would provide the perfect place to bring her for supper. Sadly, the two of us were late, leaving my husband holding our table, but the wait staff were very accommodating of him. Our waiter was jovial and helpful. The food was excellent: I had the basic weiner schnitzel with a side of spatzle and the portions are very generous and very tasty. We all left happily filled and the ambience in the restaurant was perfect for catching up with an old friend.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Service was a bit slow, but the food made up for it!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great family dining spot
My sister, brother, and I recently dined with our spouses and had a wonderful evening. The staff was attentive, but not intrusive. The food was tasty, plentiful, and eye appealing. We recommend the Old Bavaria Haus for anyone looking for a casual evening of hearty food and pleasant surroundings.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
“Awesome authentic German food!
Cute old fashioned family type German restaurant. We both ordered Sauerbraten with red cabbage and Spaetzle noodles. It doesn't get better than this in Germany folks...delicious. Low music was playing in the background, the staff was speaking German, and it was a great experience. The black forest cake perfect they used plenty of whipped cream. Five stars!!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Some good schnitzel
The schnitzel here is excellent. Large portions at a fair price, especially if you have an Entertainment book coupon or if you come here on Schnitzel Wednesdays. Staff was friendly and accommodating. The dining room area is definitely outdated and plain. A little lift would be nice.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
schnitzel in new west
Good food. Ambience a bit outdated. Service great. Love the spaetzle. The wine list by the glass leaves a lot to be desired.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Thanks a bunch. We had a fabulous time at your restaurant. The whole family, including the kids, enjoyed themselves.

Best Schnitzel Ever!
The Old Bavaria Haus in New Westminster has been my favorite restaurant for over 30 years. Every time I go, I browse the menu, but invariably end up ordering the my usual - schnitzel with mushrooms in bernais sauce. It's so good - the first bite is just ambrosia! The service is great - very attentive staff, & the food is consistently great. I can honestly say that I have never had a bad meal. For a special occasion, try one of their desserts (if you have room after eating dinner!). On our most recent visit, my mom tried the vanilla ice cream with hot cherries & chocolate sauce (yum!) & I sampled the amaretto mousse. Very good, light & extremely tasty. I recommend both. Portions are generous, so ask for a take away box.

A Winter Anniversary
I have little other than praise for this restaurant, the food was very good, The portions large and filling, the service was excellent. The Prices were higher than others, yet not unreasonable for what is given. My only downside was the drafty single pane window. I still give this place 5 Stars as the rest it more than makes up for it.
