We went to Der Metz (Kohimarama, Auckland) last weekend for our second time. The previous time would have been about two years ago and the experience was comparable.
Having spent time in Bavaria 18 months ago, this restaurant is fairly typical of what we experienced at bars in Germany. The portions are large, sausages excellent and the Hofbräu beer on tap goes down well. We started with Nurnberger wurst and it was very good with an excellent Sauerkraut. We followed this with an enormous Schnitzel, Venison (which was smaller than the other meals, but still an adequate portion) and a ridiculously huge Pork hock that was crispy on the outside and succulent within.
The Apple Strudel for dessert was also nice although it was different than the standard Apple Strudel I am used to. The chocolate mousse was apparently also good.
Just like what we had in Bavaria, the Presentation was not a focus. A good decor with lots of Bavarian icons with a nice atmosphere. A well priced hearty meal. We will be back.
