Funky German small 9 table restaurant with an eclectic mix of furniture. This BYOB German restaurant tucked away on Cumberland ave. offers authentic German fare. The always smiling and friendly owner Steffi waited on us on a cold Thursday in March. Shortly after open we were the first to be seated, a few patrons came in later. We had wanted... More

Went here for brunch. This is flat out authentic German food. There are options (scrambled eggs, omelette) for people who aren't that adventurous, but I highly recommend the German food. Sundays they do a traditional roast, it varies from week to week, it's the real deal and will remind you of your German/Central European grandmother's cooking. However, equally as good... More

There is a great void in New England when it pertains to German food. No self respecting German would feed what most New Englanders refer to as sausage to their chickens, That said I can only say I have found a place that can satisfy my craving for the food I grew up with and came to enjoy first hand...

Very cute little restaurant with authentic German food. Everything is prepared right at the kitchen that you can look into. The owners run and operate their little "gem" and put lot's of pride and joy into the food. The "zwiebelkuchen" and "spaetzle" were my fovorite. And the chocolate cake was to die for. Bring your own alcoholic beverages.

My wife and I lived in Germany for four years when stationed there with the US Army. We are always looking for German restaurants because we loved the food so much. Our daughter lives in Portland and had been here a couple of times with her girlfriend so we gave it a try last week while visiting. We were not... More

This has become one of the restaurants we go to regularly! We lived in Europe for a number of years, and travelled a lot in Germany, and find the food here very authentic. The menu is small, but they have the essentials: bratwurst, schnitzel and sauerbraten. And not to mention their excellent fish goulash, which is one of the best... More

Grew up in Germany, this place is as good as it gets. Hole in the wall, but great food and good service. Also BYO, which is great.

Eating at Schulte and Herr was like being in a German home and having a homemade meal. Everything I was served was thoughtfully prepared and delicious to eat. The potato pancakes were crispy, the späztel comforting and yet complex...the cucumber salad well balance and the homemade bread was amazing. I know I will be coming back.

Thank Dan0001
