Austrian Food Near Birmingham

Visited with friends. Wasn't sure what to expect but pleasantly surprised. Unusual setting in a residential street but the warmest of welcomes awaited us. Good quality food, the price included three courses with plenty to eat. A little on the pricey side but an enjoyable evening.

hidden up a side street in Bearwood, Franzls is a gem. Genuine family run business. Friendly hosts, lovely relaxed atmosphere and fantastic food. Really tasty and very generous portions. Your main course dictates the price for your 3 courses but ranges from £20-£29. It's been a few years since I visited, but I won't be leaving it so long next... More

I've not been living in Birmingham long and have been trying out lots of restaurants; Franzls gets my vote. The food is scrummy and so different, the staff are helpful and friendly. Will impress my friends when they visit! Well done Franzls, keep up the good work

The menu is so different and appetising that I was hooked before I'd tasted anything, and when I did, was hooked for the rest of the meal. Delicious. Parking can be difficult but really, really well worth the effort. I shall definitely return.

Not been for a few years and guilty of forgetting how good this place is. Lovely staff, great food and a refreshing change from the more popular cuisines locally on offer.

You don't usually get that many German or Austrian restaurants around and this one is ticked away in the middle of a residential area, but it is quote a nice hidden gem. The atmosphere is quite quaint, the food is very authentic and of high quality and the service is brilliant. Very efficient and extremely friendly. Would certainly recommend this... More

We went there last week for a special treat. It was my partner´s birthday. It was not my first visit. The service was first class. They could not do enough for us. the food was cooked perfectly. It has a quite atmosphere, not a huge place and no large dining rooms. I think it has improved since my first visit.

Love this restaurant. Been here quite a few times over the years and always been impressed with the family atmosphere, Adolf is the chef, Val his wife is front of house. There is a lovely bar area in the basement and a warm and inviting atmosphere in the restaurant. At the end of the evening Adolf often joins the diners... More

Franzl's is a hidden gem in Bearwood. I met someone the other day who was taken here in the 90s and a lovely gentleman who brought his family here last month both as thank you for good times.
