Santa Clara

Sunnyvale

Hardy's Bavaria Bavarian, Austrian and Hungarian cuisine. The paprika chicken is not truly authentic, and the goulash is not the real Hungarian version but they are both delicious. The Bavarian entries are excellent. I would say the traditional pork knuckle is better than in Munich, and they pour real Bavarian beers such as Augustiner or Franziskaner.
