We came for dinner the other night and it was lovely as always. We had 3 schnitzels and 1 order of bratwurst. All were very good and so were the side order of Spätzle. We will be coming back for sure when we need a little taste of Bavaria.

Bavaria Haus is reliably good. Schnitzel always comes out crispy but not greasy.

Pricey for the amount of food you get but the food was good. The service started out good, the waiter was helpful and friendly but once our food was delivered the waiter never once came back to see how everything was or fill our water. We had to wave him down to get more water and the bill. I think service is very important so to be ignored once the food was delivered is not good service. I may go back again if I had a coupon but I would not pay full price as it is too expensive for what you get in my opinion.

We always go to celebrate our anniversary (56 this year). Servers always make us feel welcome and are friendly. Service is prompt, the food is great. We never feel hurried. All in all we leave feeling very satisfied, and will return often. Best restaurant in New Westminster. Thank you.

We regularly dine at the Bavaria Haus. The food is always very good but something was wrong Saturday night! Our server was pretty much absent. She brought what was to be dessert menus was actually a bill folder. She was about 10 minutes before we saw her to inform of her error. We had ordered special coffees usually server with a sugared rim ours was salted! It was offensive. It took about 15 mins before our server came by - she took the drinks to have them remade - there was no apology! We then sat for a very long time before we could request our bill. We eventually received it had wait another 10 mins for the machine in order to pay!
This was really out of the ordinary service level. Will have to convince my husband to go back again!!

It’s an ok place . The schnitzel was nice enough as was the Black Forest cake , but the Caesar salad for $8.95 was seriously overpriced for a very small mediocre salad -. It was not worth more than about $4.95

Introduced two of my friends to your restaurant and German food. They felt right at home when they entered. Loved the homey décor. Felt like they could be somewhere in Germany.
As we have had our birthdays we have sampled food from each of our ethnic backgrounds. Thank you for making the evening a great success. :)

I have been to this restaurant in the past and brought along a friend who had never been there. We booked for after a play at Queens Park on a Sunday. She loved it also and we have plans to return. I booked it because I did have a coupon and it made it affordable for us.

Traditional German menu with always delicious weinerschnitzl and accompaniments. Wine by the glass menu needs updating as selections are unappealing , old-fashioned and low quality. Service is always excellent by accommodating and happy staff.

The Old Bavaria Haus is New West's hidden gem. It's easy to overlook because it's been around forever but it is a worthwhile visit. Service is professional yet casual and friendly. The menu is extensive but you can't go wrong with any of the Schnitzel choice, even the vegetation versions.

Based on an in-house vegetarian patty with the traditional choice of toppings it is rich and satisfying. The potatoes, veggies and cabbage with the entrees are fresh, properly cooked and served at the right temperature.

We were too full for dessert but they offer about 8 varied items but will try and make room for them next time. The rooms are packed in fairly tight and even on a week night the place can get full during dinner time. Don't expect privacy or a quiet conversation but for an enjoyable, casual dinner that will fill you up it's worth a try.

We were in Germany last year and had authentic German Schnitzel that was to die for.
The Old Bavaria Haus was just exactly the same. Tender, flavorful.
Excellent schnitzel, the portions were very big and the veggies and potatoes were also done perfectly.
Awesome staff.
The food was spectacular. Very fresh with a great variety!

years ago when the German fellow owned it you got lots of gravy on your schnitzel, the other night you could barely see it... a little more would be better
Plus it was cold in the restaurant most people had their coats on

Our waiter was very over busy perhaps because he was on his own. A young chap delivered bread but offered no other help. The waiter was great but too rushed. It was Valentine’s Day though so we get it. The food was great. We will be back for regular date nights. We have to try all the schnitzels.
