I got french toast from here and tried the brott (bread). Was good, but nothing extra spectacular. Parking is limited, and awkward to get in and out the lot.

Dinner was a wonderful surprise!! This was our first time, but definitely not our last!! The food was very good, very authentic German. The owner (Heidi) and her husband (Axel) have a nicely decorated restaurant and were MOST friendly. Our other server, Ramona, was also very friendly and welcoming.

Personal service is when you are greeted at the door by the owner who is also the server and the best cheerleader of the establishment. Personal service is when the owner is excited to share the menu and explain her personal touch on German cuisine. The weather outside was frightful, the puddles in the street were six inches deep but... More

On my first night of visiting Ft Myers beach we stopped by for dinner. Everyone loves the potato pancake and especially the beef. I highly recommend this place for dinner. Better German food than what I can get at home.
