    It is worth the trip from Kapalua, Kaanapali and Lahaina. You will not be disappointed, the food is great and service is excellent. We have been there twice so far and will return. If you like German food, you have to go. Make your reservation on open table to make sure you are seated.

    This is the second time we have eaten here and absolutely love it. It is a small outside cafe with great food. It has a "family" atmosphere where they welcome everyone with smiles. We will definitely be going back and recommend it to everyone who asks for a great place to eat.

    All our food was outstanding. The service although warm and welcoming was lacking. They forgot us a few times, they didn’t know what was available, we didn’t know the drink menu. Also the ladies bathroom room was laughable with its broken toilet handle and storage room vibe.

    This was a special event. Oktoberfest. We wanted something different and we got that. Authentic German owners and what I suspect was very authentic German food. They had a German band and I had the massive 1 liter beer. It was fun. A bit pricy but still, we enjoyed ourselves and we are appreciative to people being able to put on a nice event for us in these days of weirdness in supply chain and restaurant help.

    Excellent dinner selection and the food is sumptuous. I lived in Germany for five years, and our dinner items here are among the best German dishes that I've ever had. Our server was friendly and provided good service, although she was the only server on duty (on a weekday evening).

    Went to Brigit & Bernard’s for Octoberfest. Although we had a little tropical storm system come through, the evening was a hit. Great food, great service, great music! We will do it again soon.

    We are generally fans of Brigit & Bernard's—not the best German cuisine we've ever eaten, but still quite tasty and reasonably authentic. However, at $80 per person, their Oktoberfest Buffet is obscenely overpriced. The bill for two buffets, one small beer, and one dessert somehow totaled $223, not including the gratuity. (There was a small "oompah" band playing, but the entertainment in no way justified the exorbitant pricing.) To make matters worse, it rained heavily the night we attended (Friday 10/21). We stayed at our table, hoping the rain would quickly subside, but it did not. Within 15 minutes, I was drenched and the food on our plates was floating in puddles of rainwater. They eventually found a small table for us inside to finish our meal, but, other than that, the management made no attempt to compensate us or any other guests for the discomfort or inconvenience. The evening was a huge disappointment, to say the least.

    Delightful outdoor dining location and really fresh and unique dishes. My husband fell in love with European cold cuts when we visited there. Brigit & Bernard’s brought back memories of those hand crafted specialties. This was our first visit to this eatery and we will return to enjoy their food and service.

    Brigit & Bernard,s Garden Cafe is one of the best restaurants on Maui it is a local institution. The Menu has a lot of variety and I especially enjoy the Lamb Kabobs with the Greek Salad. In addition there are excellent Germain classic entrees. I have been enjoying it for over 20years and I highly recommend it. " Authenticity Cannot Be Bought"

    Be aware, if you make a reservation and can’t make it you will be charged $25 per person if it’s within 24hrs of the time. So rather than waste $50 on nothing, we made it work and didn’t feel it was worth the trip. I had spaghetti bolognese and it reminded me of what my school cafeteria served growing up. My husband had Wiener schnitzel which was average. The location was quite odd-among a bunch of warehouses. Our server was great though and it looked like she was seating, serving and clearing all the tables herself.

    Great local place! I’ve never had German food so my friend and I decided to try Brigit & Bernard’s, and it did not disappoint! Seated quickly by the hostess who was also the server and she didn’t skip a beat! (a little kooky, but very friendly and attentive). Brigit stopped by our table to make sure everything was okay. She is a lovely woman. Food was excellent as was the wine. Unique experience and we’ll definitely refer others here!

    We saw this on DDD and had it on our bucket list. We were not disappointed. Ordered the lamb rack for two. Lamb was cooked perfectly and the au jus was amazing - that alone should be bottled and sold! Apple streusel for dessert was amazing as well! The restaurant is off the beaten path but definitely worth finding. Reservations are a must but don’t let that stop you!

    The Jägerschnitzel was far from the real deal. Just slices of porkroast with a sauce that had mostly onions and few mushrooms. The Spätzle were of student dining hall quality. The mushroom toast on the other hand was great. Apfelstrudel just ok.

    This is our family’s comfort food, and it was prepared as I do at home! Unfortunately I wasn’t there on a day when cucumber salad was available. That would have completed the menu handed down from my mother in law’s mother! Large portions of freshly prepared dishes and fresh from the oven bread. The strudel filling was outstanding. Sauerbraten, schnitzel, spatzle, strudel, sausages, sauerkraut....... it’s all like a trip to Europe. Beer garden setting that takes one from Maui to Melk.
