It's wonderful when you feel welcome as soon as you walk in. I was by myself. I came for the Saturday special; I didn't realize it was just a special at lunch and the waitress said I'll check with the chef. He kindly said yes and I had the most wonderful meal!! It was the tenderest schnitzel and it looked... More

Stopped for breakfast and were pleasantly surprised. I had the French toast with cinnamon and sugar, it was very good. The restaurant atmosphere was very nice, friendly service good price for a quality meal. Would definitely go back again.

We went with breakfast in mind but found out they switch to lunch at 11:30. Nothing on the lunch menu for an ovo-lacto vegetarian so they let me order from the dinner menu. The mushroom soup with dumplings were both good & filling. My wife loved her chicken salad & said they had the best croutons she has ever had.... More

This German influenced Resturant is Greta for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I went for brekkie there. The staff are quite serious but good and it would appear German and as such the sense of Humour may be a little different than one would expect but the food is excellent and fresh cooked. Give it a bash!

We had friends visiting from WI who we dine regularly with at German restaurants in MN & WI. Everyone agreed that our meals were all exceptional. My only disappointment was they were out of Linzer tarts, they did offer to make one for me. We're going back soon....

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food in this small establishment right on Estero Blvd in a small strip mall. This restaurant is relatively new as we have been going to FT Myers Beach for quite a few years now and only discovered it after reading reviews on tripadvisor. The four of us all had something different... More

Great food!!! We went here because our family stays at the Red Coconut RV. Karin and her son are so generous and explain the menu to make sure we knew what we were ordering. Food was fresh aND yummy. Restaurant was clean and never busy. A great place for large families to eat as they are never that busy.

Staying at a condo on Estero Blvd, Ft. Myers Beach we were looking for an early dinner, nothing fancy, just good food. This is where we discovered Heidi's. It's in a strip mall setting, nothing elaborate, BUT the food is delicious. Chef Axel who is from Germany prepares the most wonderful German dishes, and our favorite was wiener and jaeger... More

Arriving early for the American Sandcastle championships, we needed breakfast in an area unknown to us. This is a delightful find, slightly set back from the road and perhaps easily missed.as the signs are not large Excellent cooked breakfast with good coffee and charming helpful staff. We will definitely return to sample other meals as the menu looks interesting
