The popular Schmatz chain of German restaurants is known for their German-style original craft beers and modern German cuisine, and this first Nagoya branch offers a good selection of both. Eight different sausages, a nicely varied charcuterie platter and a hefty Schnitzel Parmigiana are typical of the meaty fare turned out by the kitchen, but there are also plenty of potato and vegetable dishes, salads, pizzas and small tapas-style starters.
The bar's seven taps are split between German imports (lager, dunkel and Bavarian helles) and original craft beers (hefeweizen, porter and pale ale, plus a rotating special), and are priced from Y690. The drinks list also includes German wines, shochu, cocktails and soft drinks. Budget around Y2,500-3,000 for food and drink at dinnertime. Open all day on weekends.
