Fab!!

Great restaurant on the doorstep! Fab choice of beers in the cellar whilst you look at the menu. We both had a real job choosing our meals; really good range of starters and mains. Food was stunningly good and the service is exceptional. Really nice Austrian wine too. Very highly recommended!!

Although parking can be a nightmare in this residential area (allow time to find a space and be prepared to walk) the place is well worth the effort. I've been here several times with friends, and apart from one (who is a well known fussy eater!!) we've never had a bad meal.

Austrian menu makes a welcome change from the usual restaurant offerings. Very reasonably priced. Main course price includes starter and dessert. Short wine list but again fair prices. Delightful friendly staff. Generous portions of well cooked food. Doubt if you'd be disappointed.

What a gem to be found in Bearwood. Never heard of it before, until it was mentioned in the Bearwood blog. Service fantastic. Shown to the drinks cellar, while we waited for our table. Advised on choice of drinks and ordered food. Food and service second to none. Recommend to everyone. Would go back at a later date.

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. Each... 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
