WHAT A CREEPY NAME !!!!!! NOBODY TOLD THEM !??!?!
Das Gasthaus means “The Guest House”.
Das Gasthaus is a perfect name for this type of pub. Friendly, tasty food and conveniently located. Give it a try, Geezloueez – you will not find it creepy at all.

Not impressed. I have been waiting a long time to take part in the “All you can eat” Wednesday night schnitzel offering….. And wouldn’t you know I had one taste and then when preparing to order my next serving I was informed they ran out. The service was quick and rushed without the delicate care to ask if I wanted ketchup with my fries or milk and sugar with my tea. I was very put off at the end of the meal when the waiter had awkwardly tried to make a cash compromise with me for payment. I was not looking for a free meal, but you would think since the whole reason I walked in “was for the evening special” that they would have comped it and said “please come back next week” schnitzelis good but I’m just not interested in returning. I will stick to my all-time favorite country style Hungarian restaurant at Bathurst and Bloor.
The chairs are not very comfortable and the tables are small if you are having a comfortable dinner with wine/water/entree/side plates for 2 on the table. The home made soup is good as are the specials. The schnitzel was burned the first time I went but okay the second. The apple strudel wasn’t heated and the crust was tough. The poutine with smoked Guyere cheese is quite good but at $9 it should be. It does take some time to get the server’s attention. Ex after being given coffee there was no one to be found for 10 min. to ask for milk/sugar. It can be very good but it’s hit and miss.
