We stopped here for what we hoped for would be a quick breakfast before we had our jet ski tour. However, we were wrong! The service was the slowest ever. We waited such a long time to even place our order then even longer for the food. There was only 1 other table seated in the restaurant. The French Toast... More

We visited Heidi's twice during our stay in FMB, it was by far the best meal of our trip. We had jaeger schnitzel, soft pretzels, goulash soup, egg noodles with cheese ( can't remember what these are called), potato soup, potato pancakes and some German beer. Everything was delicious! We especially enjoyed our waitress, Ramona, she was so nice and... More

Expensive for serving size. This was supposed to be an authentic German restaurant. My mother's German cooking was delicious and flavorful...our meals we neither.

We had an amazing experience at this authentic German restaurant! The German potato salad nailed it! The potato pancakes were just like my grandfather made. French onion soup was flavorful, but peppery so beware! Goulash soup packed a ton of flavor. The spätzle was ok, but everything else was great! Overall great prices, service, and restaurant. I will definitely come... More

Came here twice with my sons while we were staying in Fort Myers Beach. The breakfast was incredible. Simple food prepared incredibly well. Service was great. I also appreciate that this is a small business. Love to see these places do well when they provide a great product/service.

What a pleasant surprise! No DD or SB nearby so we ended searching for a hot latte for breakfast and found Heidi's German bistro, clean , well priced good quality freshly made food. Attended by the owner's mom Karin, she was delightful . Best in the area. Thanks! I wasn't hungry so only ordered a scrabbled egg and a croissant... More

If you enjoy German food, then you must visit Heidi's Island Bistro. The service was very good and the owner Heidi stopped by our table to make sure everything was good with the dinners. The prices are very fair and the portions generous.

Excellent food and service! Yum, we had all the vegetarian food and it was delicious! Heidi greeted us and suggested a great beer, then we had the potato cakes with sour cream and applesauce. Main course was cheese spaetzle and creme de la mushroom.
