This little restaurant is a gem. Great German food that is well prepared and served by people who care. I would recommend reservations because the restaurant is small. I hope to be able to return soon; just thinking about my meal makes my mouth water.

We've been to Heidi's before, on several occasions - and usually order their wonderful pork dishes. But I've been trying to watch my diet, especially while eating out. So, I ordered the Grouper with Red Cabbage and a side salad. It was tremendous. Very moist and tasty. It comes with veggies - but I decided to have the red cabbage... More

Fantastic food! Excellent selection of wine and German beer! I recommend the potatoe pancakes and the jaeger schitzel! My Wife is German born and says this is the best Jaeger Schnitzel she has ever eaten! Incredible friendly service and very reasonable prices for high quality cuisine!

Having lived and worked in Germany at various times during my life, it is always a special treat to come a cross a restaurant in North America that can recreate the 'old country' experience. By luck we stumbled across Heidi's place on our way to the airport and that is exactly what transpired. Good old fashioned German home cooking prepared... More

I stopped in here with family, and guests from Switzerland. They all grew up eating German food, and everything served was authentic, and scrumptious. I had the jaeger shnitzel with spetzli and red cabbage. It was delicious and Everything was made from scratch. We'll be returning tomorrow morning for breakfast, and again the next time we're in Ft Myers. Thanks... More

Plain and simple: the most welcoming and delicious restaurant I've ever eaten at. I have been here before, but for breakfast and ever since I have been craving the homemade pancakes (everything is homemade!) I went in tonight hoping to get those same pancakes but it was dinner time. I was disappointed, right? WRONG! The nicest, sweetest, most genuine and... More
