We have been to Sandra's on at least three occasions and each time the service has been slow and very un-attentive!! The menu has a variety of European selections and the food is acceptable, but not impressive. So, it is a restaurant that we feel would do much better if the service improved.

We went there for dinner about 4 weeks ago, based on Tripadvisor reviews. Overall, excellent. We went with a n Irish couple who had lived in Germany for 5 years and told us the food was very comparable to good German restaurants over there. They were more than impressed. We had the Schweinebraten (German pork roast), German Bratwurst Dinner and... More

Rouladen ($18) was the special for the evening we were there. My husband had it and was quite satisfied with it. I had the salmon in a reisling cream sauce ($18) which was excellent. We both chose potato pancakes for one of our sides and were a bit disappointed that they weren't crispy. We were also asked if we wanted... More

My family and I spent a few days in Punta Gorda during the holidays and ate a quite a few restaurants in the area. Sandra's was, by far, the best. There's nothing fancy about the decor and it doesn't look like it will be anything special from the outside. But the staff was very friendly and the German/European food was... More

Foods: As a fan of European cuisine, I was very interested in trying out Sandra's. I would call their menu 'mainly' German, but they have an excellent selection of pasta, several non-German salads, and a dish I have fallen in love with, their Hungarian goulash. If you're new to this sort of food, I would highly recommend starting with the... More

I went in for the goulash buffet and I was extremely pleased. Delicious! The restaurant has a warm inviting atmosphere and the servers are very kind. I highly recommend this restaurant and will be coming back for more!

We went for lunch in the last week of 2012 and found a gem. Be ready for authentic German cuisine prepared from scratch with no shortcuts. The Sauerbratten is served once per week because the protein must marinate for one week. The potato Pancakes are delicious and the Red Cabbage is sweet/tart and wonderful. Wash this wonderful food down with... More

We visited Sandra's for lunch with a favorite relative who knows from German food. Some of the food was right on track---Black Forest ham sandwich, pretzel bread. Some of it--not so much, especially the potato salad. The 'cold' German beer on tap was authentic, but not so cold. Fine value for lunch. The waitress was young and a high pitched,... More
