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. This restaurant stands the test of time and remains in the memory for decades! The experience begins with a drink at the... More

I last went to franzls about 25 years ago as a youngster, it was brill then. Finally I get to return and what a brilliant place. The location is residential and can feel odd, but as soon as you walk in the door then it's clear why Franzls is still going strong. Lovely owners and staff, lovely ambience, amazing food.... More

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
