I enjoy german food and this restaurant is a gem. Donna our server was knowledgeable, sweet and took her time to explain the menu. My veal schnitzel was superb as was the potato pancake and red cabbage sides. Have to try the dessert. I had a warm sugar like donut with fresh apples inside was excellent and donna prepared it...

Made from scratch German food. Clean, well decorated restaurant with excellent service. Our server, Donna, made sure we were aware of the special for the day. She was very informed how each dish was made and served. Fried apple rings are sinful. Great place.

Good food and good beer. It is a German restaurant so expect German food and not the usual beach fare. The bratwurst, jaeger schnitzel and spaetzle were all excellent. It is a little bit of a strange location - Tripadvisor reviews is how we found it or we would have never considered it. Overall the food was really good, the... More

Great food & wonderful service. If you're looking for good German food, you won't be disappointed! The food is made from scratch and is creative & flavorful. Off the beaten track but head out of town on Estero and you'll run into it.

This was my first visit to Heidi's and the next time I come back to Ft. Myers, I will definitely go back! My parents had been raving about it so I was definitely expecting a nice time. As soon we walked in the door, they got an enthusiastic "You're back!" from our hostess, Donna. Throughout our meal, she continued to... More

A great little German restaurant hidden away in a small strip mall next to Red Coconuts RV Park. Unfortunately for them, it is rarely busy due to limited parking but a delightful menu and wine (and German beer!) list awaits you inside. My favorite is the schnitzel, especially the Jaeger available as the pork, veal or chicken. All dishes are... More

Very good food. Homemade sausages. Well prepared. Excellent desserts. The store front belies what lies within. Very good service. Casual atmosphere.

Without Tripadvisor we would never stop for this type of restaurant, based on the number 2 best op Tripadvisor we went to this bistro, standard food. For example the mozzarella cheese sticks --> very basic. The ceased saled : standard sliced chicken without any flavor in combination with regular salad and croutons. Crew looks not very happy…same story with the... More
