If you like great German food you will love this place!

Very nice atmosphere and meticulously clean. The service was perfect, the beer was cold and the schnitzel was SpotOn, accompanied with German potato salad and red cabbage, all done to perfection! Very generous portion. Very reasonable prices. This is a must for German food lovers.

What's not to like about this place! The service was excellent, my glass never went empty, and the food was amazing. One of the chefs (maybe the owner) walked around and asked how everyone was doing. The food came out quickly and was tasty. I would suggest making a reservation. We ate early, and it was booked by the time... More

You can't find any better German restaurant. Yes, prices are high but you get what you pay for. Been going to them for over 7 years now. They are consistent in making a fantastic meal.

This restaurant appears to be well designed, well maintained and clean. We have had some wonderful meals there, but when ordering the exact same thing a week later, it was not so good. I can't give it an excellent review because of these inconsistencies. When they're good, they're very good but I don't know what causes the differences.

I had the veal schnitzel, spatzel and red cabbage and it was mouthwatering delicious. The Veal was tender and moist, the spatzel light and fluffy, the red cabbage had just the right balance of sweet and tart and complimented the meal. The service was informative and attentive. We had beer in a German Stein. I will go back for more.

My husband and I had dinner here this past Saturday night while visiting our son in Sarasota. This was one of the best meals we've had in a long time! The atmosphere is very inviting and the owner, Heinrich, was so welcoming and genuine. Our servers were attentive and friendly and made excellent recommendations. One of those recommendations was the... More

The service was excellent, and the food was amazing. Best potato pancakes since my grandmothers. Schnitzel and red cabbage were superb.

I have been spoiled by German food in Germany so my standards are set very high! When I order a Kolsch beer - I was surprised (and almost left) when my server said he had never heard of it. (We have it in Louisville Kentucky!!) The food was good but very pricey. The spaetzle was excellent!

We took our family, very diverse tastes, to dinner our first night in Siesta Key. We absolutely loved the food and the service was outstanding. Mr. Heinrich was a delightful host - our kids thoroughly enjoyed a lively conversation about the "borscht" (quite authentic)!
