    They were extremely under-staffed so service was very slow. It would have been so much better if we had been alerted upon arrival. However, the food was fantastic and definitely worth the wait!

    Brigitte and Bernard’s provide great German food, ample portions, at a reasonable price for the Hawaiian islands. The waitress / bartender was very accommodating when the restaurant did not have the hard seltzer I had requested from their menu by mixing for me a delicious Mia Tia. This was our third time at the restaurant, when visiting the island, and, once again it did not disappoint.

    Just go! I traveled Europe for 18 years and have never ran across more authentic German cuisine in the US. The spatzel and pork were exceptional. The blue cheese salad was perfect. We finished off with Apfel Struedel which was fantastic. We will definitely return.

    It’s great being able to find German food in Maui, in addition to other items on the menu. Nice to be able to find some good German beer unfortunately, they did not have Optimator which I was looking forward to. They should work on expanding their German beer selection. We make it a point to visit Bridget and Bernard every time we go to Maui.

    5th time in Maui, first time to Brigit and Bernards, because we saw it on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives with Guy Fieri. The portions were huge, the prices were great, and quality was excellent. Definitely worth seeking out in Maui.

    They certainly have authentic European/German food. And the setting is charming, certainly not fancy, but more homey and festive. There was a table of 4 near us who I think had been drinking too much and were loud and not very aware that they weren't the only ones in the restaurant and that offensive, f-bomb language is just that...OFFENSIVE! We don't speak like that in our home and I don't want to hear it when I am out for a Valentine's dinner (or any other dinner for that matter). I wish more people had a sense of decorum.

    Amazing restaurant in Maui with authentic German food. This place is the only place I’ve found in the state of Hawaii that has real German food! The service was exceptional and the owner came to check in on us which made the experience that much better! 10/10 would highly recommend!

    Everything was fabulous at Brigit & Bernard's! We missed visiting when we were on the island in 2022 so made to get there this trip and we are so glad we went. The food was delicious and perfectly seasoned and the service was excellent! We will make sure to return the next time we visit Maui. Thank you B&B!

    The service was fine but the first sign of what was to come should have been the water served in Costco water bottles. The salad leaves were “melted” aka old and most people throw away. The mushroom pasta had grit like sand though the flavor was okay. The chicken tasted okay but for cordon bleu, had a brown sauce and not baked, but fried. Reminded me of Malibu chicken. Could have been an off night with the “C” cook because a friend raves about this place. Threw out the to go boxes on the way home.

    Pleasantly surprised this little restaurant located in the industry section of Kahului was really good. Food was delicious and authentic. Restaurant has a small staff so be prepared to wait - which for us, wasn’t a bad thing :) Our waitress was kooky but enjoyable, funny and attentive. She was definitively part of the experience. My only negative was dessert - the apple tart was bland and the pastry was raw. We were bummed and based on other reviewers, our dessert was the exception. Hopefully when we return the apple tart will delight us.

    Crispy wiener schnitzel, it’s soul food for our family. The apple strudel is loaded with apples, nuts, raisins, and the perfect amount of cinnamon. This is a gem hidden away in the industrial section. Celeste will keep you entertained as you savor each tasty bite.
