Wonderful food. Very authentic. Service was great. Very Nice atmosphere. Not overly pricey. Good sized portions. We shared an entree, and they served it on two plates. All in all, a very enjoyable meal. It is quite small, only 9 or 10 tables.

Don't let the tiny footprint and the apparent lack of parking let you drive by this gem. There is parking in the back. Although intimate inside the servers move effortlessly and the noise level is very acceptable. Rustic German décor and a substantial menu are part of the immediate charm. The German choices are typical, but excellently prepared. Hot and... More

This little place was right across from our hotel. My Grandparents on my dad's side were from Budapest, and one of my Great-Grandfathers was from Tarnof in Southeastern Poland, so I have an eye for good Central European food. Upon entering, we noticed it was small...no more than 8 tables. And some weird, but homey decorations. Decently old school European... More

I was in Ormond Beach for the weekend with my boyfriend and we walked over to the European Cafe from our hotel. The entire meal was absolutely incredible. We were first brought some bread with a delicious cheese spread, followed by the best chicken noodle soup we have ever had. While some chicken noodle soups are mostly broth, this was... More

Whenever I go here I always call ahead for a reservation and usually when we are eating here we see many people turned away because the restaurant is full. The quality of the food here is very good considering the fact that the owners are not really German. They are from eastern Europe somewhere, perhaps Hungary or Czechoslovakia but they... More

What can I say. The food was the best you would find anywhere. The Schnitzel was tasty and tender. Trust me, you will wonder why there is not a line out the door. Please come back and leave me a helpful vote!! Come Hungry, very hungry. Appetizers we had were cabbage rolls and perogie. I know I spelled it wrong,... More

SO happy to find this place after being disappointed with almost every restaurant we've tried in the Daytona / Ormond area. This is a 30 year old establishment and run by a Czech family. I loved that it's not typical chain restaurant food. It's very old fashioned yet very clean and our waiter was so helpful and friendly. I'd ordered... More

If you like homemade German food, prepared fresh, served piping hot with hearty portions, do not miss the European café and schnitzel house. Great potato pancakes appetizer plenty large enough to share, delicious schnitzel, wonderful soup and tasty desserts! We will definitely be back.

Located just across the street from the Best Western Castillo Del Sol in Daytona, Florida. Real authenic German food. Staff was extremely pleasant and spoke Deutsche. Atmosphere was quiet as expected in a German restaurant. Food was excellent and brought back many memories of being stationed in Deutschland.

This restaurant is small but homey. It is decorated with a German folk style similar to what you would see in a traditional home. The food is freshly made and the portions are ample. There was so much food the three of us could have shared one entrée! I had the German Wurst Platter with sauerkraut and home fries. After... More
