“Great German Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

This place serves excellent and authentic Austrian and German meals. I had Beef Tafelspitz, a great beef roast served with applesauce mixed with horseradish. You read right...it sounds kinda weird, but it's great on beef! The potatoes and veggies served with it were delicious as well. It was better than any restaurant food I found when I was in Austria!

My wife had some excellent Beef Stroganoff with spaetzle. Service was a little slow, but the food made up for it. If you go later than 5:30, I would strongly suggest reservations.

It's a little hard to find....located in the middle of Royal Palm Shopping Center with no sign. Check the posted shopping center directory.

“Great German Dessert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

We visited for coffee and dessert. The apple strudle was very good. The atmosphere was great. Sorry to have missed the German night. Will make a point to do so next time.

“The Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

this was the second time we have eaten here. it was buffet night and food was absolutely wonderful. there was a great band as the evening went the patrons were singing along you would have thought you were in a bear hall in Munich. if you never make it to Germany but want some authentic German food you have to go here.

“A total hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Found this spot via TripAdvisor reviews while visiting my mom in Fort Myers. Awesome food at a great value.

Classic German food with a huge list of Schnitzel varieties. Small but efficient selection of beers and wines. Homemade bread nailed it. Strudel dough was tough.

It's a bit tough to find - no external signage. Walk into the Royal Palm Plaza and find them situated in the courtyard in the middle. Outdoor seating in the warm weather.

“Best German Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Showed up with no reservation on a Thursday night around 6PM. Immediately seated at an outside table and ordered drinks. We had port schnitzel and beef roast with potatoes. This turned out to be some of the best German food we have had in years. We have recommended this restaurant to others and will definitely return ourselves.
