My new favorite and absolutely amazing and wonderful restaurant!

So... I guess I will begin with... Wow. The food was so good, Jonathan was our server and he was wonderful. We did not have a reservation but he fit us in. It was worth the wait. This place is such a hidden jem. Jonathan suggested the hunter snitzle and the house soup, was so good. Do not leave... read more

My family and I were in Ft Myers on business, after we got done I checked on tripadvisor for a close restaurant. Austrian-German restaurant was close and looked just right. Service was excellent, food was spot on and included soup, we had strudel for dessert. Portions were generous and everyone left full and happy.

I took my future wife there to ask her to marry me. I called the night before and told them what I was doing and what arrangements I would like. When we arrived everything was as I requested. The food was wonderful and the service couldn't be better. We had an evening that we will recall fondly when we are... More

A little hard to find, but worth the effort. Great atmosphere, service, and most of all a fantastic meal. We travel to Ft. Myers 4 or 5 times a year and it always a MUST destination. If you like German food, you will make it one of your favorites also!

Very hard to find a good German restaurant in the Fort Myers area; but this hidden gem is worth the search. Located inside the Royal Palm Plaza off of Colonial; somewhat hard to find this restaurant . A variety of items on the menu, you won't be disappointed. And, make sure you have dessert, I believe all are homemade. I... More

We found this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews. It was a bit hard to find - it's in the courtyard of a plaza where there's a regional theater and other bar/restaurants. It was totally worth the search! The food was outstanding - very generous portions, very friendly staff. They are running a summer special of soup, entree (limited choices),... More

This restaurant had a nice menu selection both food & drinks. I am a big lover of German food & this place did not disappoint. Great potato pancakes large portions & amazing soup. The bratwurst & schnitzel was fantastic. If I had to say anything negative it was just crowded so the staff was a little over whelmed they forgot... More

We have dined at this restaurant several times. The quality of the entrees and service are consistently outstanding. The homemade soups as well as the apple strudel are delicious. The owners are welcoming and always make us feel special. A real European experience in Southwest Florida. Highly recommend.
