I've been wanting to go to Brigit & Bernard's Garden Cafe for years during my visits to Maui but could never make it happen. Finally made it and am SO glad I did!
The location is as authentic Hawaii as it comes...smack in the middle of industrial area. From outside its not all that impressive but once inside, the fusion of alpen and aloha begins. From the mounted mahi mahi to the rafters lined with steins, you definitely get that you are eating Swiss/German/Alpen food in Hawaii.
The service was island time, but that's a good thing in my opinion. The food...SCHMEDKT auf Deutsch, ONO in Hawaiian. Really, I was blown away. I don't eat farmed meat so I'm a bit limited on choices but my food was amazing the the appetizers and entrees that went buy looked pretty darn tasty...which was confirmed by the other diners.
If your looking for change up from the usual island fair, try Brigit & Bernard's out...its the best of alpen food with a lot of aloha.
