    Locals out for dinner and conversation. Entrees: chicken parmigiana, salmon, and Bernard’s pasta. All excellent. Very good draft beers. Apple strudel to die for. Outdoor dining nestled in the back streets of Kahului. Lovely!!

    Hubby’s favorite is their wienerschnitzel. Best this side of Vienna. I had the prawns “pupu” & a side of braised red cabbage( like grossmuti used to make). This place has been a favorite German/Swiss restaurant for 33 years.

    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.

    Absolutely great meal and experience. I had the Breaded schnitzel and my husband had the pork tenderloin. We started with the Greek salad and finished with the apple strudel and coffee. Excellent, friendly service and the food was amazing. Cooked by Bernard himself. A real treat in Maui!

    Food: I will start this review with the positive. The food is actually ok. It isn't "oh you definitely must try this place" but, more like, this food is nice and I am happy to take home leftovers. Pasta Primavera - I got this with the linguine noodles ( it comes by default with fettucine ). Their pink sauce is yummy and their veggie selection in this dish, is actually quite carefully picked. No complaints. Rosti Potatoes - This is like a very good hashbrown pancake. Very crunchy and with salt and pepper it's the perfect breakfast. bread with mushroom gravy - feel free to skip it. it isnt that good. complimentary bread - it had a sweet taste to it, don't know what it was because the waitress told us nothing - also feel free to skip. Not good. Chicken Cordon Blue - My dad said it was good. The potato au gratin on the side was good too. Ambience: it is a garden restaurant, so, you are seated out on their covered patio, and as the lights turn on after sunset you can see geckos playing on their lamps. Service: I would NEVER come back to this restaurant because of how bad their waitress was. She didn't tell us the specials, she didn't let me know that the default pasta will be fettucine - i had to explicitly ask, there was no seasoning on the table and she was SO slow that i had to walk up to her and ask her for salt and pepper and she simply walked away and handed my dad with the seasonings. SO RUDE. We waited over 30mins to get our check ( not like there were a lot of tables she was waiting on honestly ). She was just the most unpleasant person I have interacted with in the hospitality industry. This restaurant is better off without a waitress than with her. AWFUL.

    I have to say… I love Brigitte & Bernard’s, usually. In all the years I have been going there, this was the worst meal ever. 5:30 reservation… they were already out of my favorite meal… the couple before us got the only 2… I don’t eat fried, mushrooms or pasta so there were few other choices, so I ordered a special on the appetizer board… Caprese Salad. I was served mozzarella, tasteless tomato and basil with Italian dressing… Caprese salad that I have eaten has always been served with balsamic glaze. I asked for balsamic vinegar, it wasn’t the same. I was then informed that Bernard was on vacation… hence the sparse menu. My friend, who was visiting , was equally disappointed with her food… I was so sad because I have always had great food here! IMO… Bernard, if you are going on vacation? Better to close for that period because the food is not up to your quality standards. In the future, I will call to confirm that Bernard is present before I make a reservation.

    Had a nice dinner at B&Bs. Menu a combo of German and Italian. Most of the tables were outside in the garden which was pretty well hidden from the surrounding industrial buildings. Had nice chat with one of the owners using some of our German. My guest had the crab cake apps. Come deep fried but tasted good. I had a combo of veal and pork brats off app list with a side of spaetzle. The spaetzle was outstanding. Service good but probably needed one more server.

    Excellent food, European style dining. Do not go if you are in a rush. Go if you are looking to have a wonderful lunch or dinner with people you enjoy. The outdoor atmosphere can’t be beat. With a shady tree canopy over the entire dining area you forget you’re in the middle of Kahului.

    Located in an industrial complex, but they have created a cute, little outdoor patio area for ambiance. (There is no indoor seating.) The menu had many options and the pricing was very good for Maui. The service was outstanding. The food was good, but not amazing. We would definitely visit again to try more offerings.

    We have eaten here before and are never disappointed. We try a new dish each time and enjoy them all. Of course we always end with their warm apple strudel topped with ice cream. We recommend them to anyone who is looking for good food in a relaxed, quiet outdoor cafe.
