How have I not heard about this place before?!

This place is an absolute gem. From start to finish the service and food was fantastic. When we arrived, we were shown to the bar in the basement. It was very cute and so friendly. We then went to our table and chose our starters and main course. There were 5 of us and we all had different meals... read more

Last night we visited the restaurant again and walked out very happy again! Although there was a mix up with our time slot, this was quickly resolved and everyone was more than friendly and helpful. I must stress here that the food at the restaurant is to die for, but what makes this place amazing is people: always smiley, friendly,... More

After having "refound" franzls last year, we returned with friends. The normal reason one friend has trouble making up their mind is because there is nothing they fancy, at Franzls it is the opposite, fantastic service & food once again at a reasonable price.

I visited Franzls on Valentine's Evening with my partner. We were both impressed with the choice of beers and wine on offer and loved the cellar bar. The it was hard to decide what have off the menu as all the dishes sounded delightful. The choices we made did not disappoint. The staff and owner are very friendly and attentive... More

A little gem of Birmingham, with just amazing staff, fabulous food, great setting and the basement bar is a brilliant touch. I can't put into words how highly I rate this place. Just something so different.

I went with a group on a "set menu" The restaurant is lovely, and the only reason that I have given a generous 3 stars. I have to say that the vegetarian option of "mushroom stroganoff" was mushrooms floating in a watery sauce. It was awful! I thought that the cheese starter, followed by mushrooms, then apple strudel was a... More

Went with work colleagues and we spent the first half hour in the wonderful cellar bar before taking our seats for a 3 course meal I can only describe as superb. Truly wonderful hosts with Val at the helm our controlling every wish. If I had the money I'd go every week ... the gem of the Black Country. Thank... More

It was many years since we had been to Franzls and it was purely by luck that the name came up to jog the memory. Very good luck. Our taxi driver did a sensible thing and started at one end of Milcote St and drove slowly along it until we found the restaurant. It is in an area that you... More
