Two Goblets at Kitchener/Waterloo - are they any good?

I'll be visiting Waterloo on Friday night and would like to have German food as dinner and found Two Goblets on google. Does anyone know if they serve grilled Pork Hox as my friend is craving for one. What about the quality of the food? Are there any alternate choice you would recommend? Furthermore, is a reservation necessary for Friday night and is parking space easy to find in the area? Thanks in advance!

  1. I don't know about Two Goblets, but I went to a restaurant called Heidelburg House, which is very close to Waterloo. It's maybe a 10-15 min drive out from Waterloo. It's not a fancy restaurant, but they serve pork hock, schnitzel....

    1. Metro is another option for German food in Kitchener: http://www.restaurantica.com/on/kitch...

      Here's the 2 Goblets site: http://www.twogoblets.com/dinner_menu... The menu looks more Romanian/Hungarian than German, although they do have schnitzel. I don't see Schweinehaxe on the menu.

      The Concordia club also has a restaurant. They might have pork hock as a special from time to time. I'd give them a call to find out if it would be included in their Friday night buffet. www.concordiaclub.ca

      1. Two Goblets is not a German restaurant, but more Hungarian. There is lots of schnitzel good schnitzel to choose from among a few other things. It's small and run by very nice people who provide good service. I like this place - never had a bad meal or bad service.

        Check out the website that phoenikia posted.

          German or Hungarian, more authentic and better than most "German Style" restos in the area. What shines through here is the passion they have for the food, comfort, and overall experience their customers get. Great wine list, Bavarian beer in cans, and absaloutely the best goulash you'll find. They are mainly known for their shnitzel and they do deliver, in large amounts! The entire experience just doesn't compare to Metro, suggested above, these people really make an effort to provide an authentic fine dinning exoerience. And they succeed. You won't be dissapointed, if you like schnitzel.
