Weiner schnitzel with pan fried potatoes was above average. The potatoes were thin and crisp...I wish that there were more. The veal was tender and well portioned. I tried the potato pancakes but found them not to my liking. The apple strudel was stuffed with apples, but I found the apples a little undercooked and heavy on the cinnamon. I'd... More

Small in size but big on taste. Lunch with a chicken breast on a delicious roll and German potato salad with onions and bacon was delicious. Ramona was our server with a friendly smile. We also went to the bakery side for a wonderful piece of apple strudel.

Being of German descent, I really liked the food and found it consistent with my childhood memories. I did think it was overpriced, as the portions were very small. If they added bread and a salad to the entries, it would be more reasonable...

Everything the way you in Germany expected things to be in the 80s.... Everything jolly mediocre, but going by the other Reviews here, this is how people live it, so they do match their audience's taste.

Dear Patrick, I am glad that you liked your food. At Heidi's you will be served 100% authentic German cuisine, the same way prepered like in a Beer Garden Restaurant in the Black Forest or in the Hart of Munich in Germany. We do not try to be an upscale 5 Star $$$$$ Restaurant. When you dine at Heidi's Island... More

Came in for a second breakfast. Cappuchino was not really good...and I needed one badly 😉 We had croissants and cinnamon roll, both ok. We expected a lot more after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor...it was ok but not excellent.
