The German Taste was opened on the 21st October 2016 and is a family run business. With mother, Mirjam (well versed with the German cuisine) being in charge of the kitchen, father, Ralph (a professional German Baker & Confectioner) being in charge of the bakery and son, Franzi, (who conducted his studies at the Stenden University for BCom international hospitality management in Port Alfred) is responsible for the floor and general management, this restaurant is truly a German family business. The restaurant is located at the Beachfront in East London and comes with stunning views of the Indian Ocean.


The vision for German Taste is to serve authentic German food at a high quality, with mainly locally sourced ingredients, in conjunction with excellent service and a relaxed but modern ambience to create a memorable dining experience. All the furniture has a rustic, but modern look and are made of European woods. There is a lime green colour scheme of cushions, giving it a warm and cosy ambience and large windows allowing for those spectacular ocean views.


The food is all freshly made on order, the ingredients are mainly locally sources, if necessary they don’t hesitate to import products in order to keep the food authentic German. Signature dishes include baked Maultaschen (German pasta squares stuffed with a mixture of mine meat, smoked meat, bacon, spinach, onions, parsles, herbs & spices) which is quite popular and the Eisbein, served with homemade Sauerkraut & German Bread dumplings “Knödel” is also divine and definitely their best seller. Their delicious desserts include Double Baked Cheesecake made with Quark, Apple Crumble/Strudel served warm with homemade Vanilla Sauce and a definite must try is their Black Forest Cake (made with imported German Kirschwasser and real fresh cream). So if you want to have a taste of Germany, come around to German Taste for a truly German experience.
