Black Forest Restaurant & Biergarten – LCM 42 Winter 2016

Black Forest_28oct2015_MV_23From its decor to its lineup—think beer, brats, sauerbraten, and goulash—everything about Black Forest will have you swearing you’re in Little Bavaria.
The exterior is reminiscent of a postcard from Germany; the decor is Old World with hand-painted murals adorning the walls. To experience a true biergarten, go upstairs to enjoy German beer, snacks, live music, and Oktoberfest any time of year. This is the place in Cabo to taste of schnitzel, spaetzle or sauerkraut. It opened in early 2015 and is a great addition to the growing variety of ethnic restaurants in Los Cabos. There are special cocktails and martinis as well as appetizers like Bavarian baked pretzels and bratwurst dipper. But don’t go overboard on snacks; there’s more to come: grilled pork hock, beef roulade smothered in rich gravy, smoked pork chop with shrimp and homemade bratwurst served with sides of red cabbage, or sauerkraut and choice of mashed potatoes or pomme croquette. Lighter fare is offered, and children 5 and younger eat free. Save room for hot apple strudel. Miguel Hidalgo, Cabo San Lucas, (624) 143-7799, Mon.–Sat. 4 p.m.–10 p.m.; Biergarten open till midnight. MasterCard, Visa, and vouchers accepted. $$ S.A.B.
