This is the best German food outside of Austria and Germany. Their schnitzel is thin and hot and delicious. The potatoes are browned nicely with onion and the spaetzels are wondeful with their butter sauce. It is very small and intimate on the inside and there is outdoor seating. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Fort Myers

Have been here several times with small groups over the past few years. Always happy with everything. Last night went again with a small group to a buffet ( a first for this restaurant). I should mention they are doing some re modeling and our dining area looked like we were eating in someone's garage on a long folding table.... More

Had dinner here this week while on vacation. We actually drove to Ft Myers from Marco Island (1 hour). Small place in what looked like a deserted mall. Eclecticly (sp) decorated restaurant, but quaint. Large portions of food! Had the pork schnitzel, hungarian goulash, potato salad, potato pancakes, red cabbage and spaetzle. Everything was excellent! Hot from the kitchen and... More

Great food, great owners, great mall. This is a must. The place is in the middle of Royal Palm Square and is a wonderful place to eat on a daily basis. They have a once a month German Fest, which is a buffet style of all the food Helga cooks. YUM!!

We discovered the restaurant years ago and go there for supper about twice a month, it is a real hidden gem in the area. The inside is quaint and decorated so nicely, there is also outdoor seating that is very nice. All linen tablecloths and owners Helmut & Helga are some of the hardest working restaurant owners we know, they... More

We booked via phone for 1830 and were there at 1830 and promptly greeted as 'you have the reservation right' and were lead to a table. The first site when walking in is the apple strudel on display and the fact you can look right into the kitchen ... Very nice. The decor is really old school and 'gemutlich' and... More

We have been to this restaurant several times and each visit is just outstanding. We took friends to the special event (German Buffet) on April 11, 2014 and what a treat. So much food and great beer. You could sample so many authentic German dishes. We have been to Germany and Austria several times and the food in this restaurant... More

DW and I ate here with a friend who is knowledgeable and "picky" about German/Austrian cooking and he pronounced this a very good place. We agree. We had the sauerbraten, dumpling and red cabbage which was excellent... red cabbage was very flavorful without being too "vinegary," the meat sauce was very good without being "too sweet" (I don't think this...
