This once was an outstanding restaurant with the original German owners. The new owners should be ashamed of what they have done to this restaurant. Our first clue should have been that there were only two tables with customers on a Friday night in "season"....More

One of the first things we asked for, at 6:30 that evening of dining was bread; they had none to offer. If you're in Cape Coral, there's BAM, a German facility that probably offers dark rye. Also check the Publix stores.

Helmut (chef) has been indulging their guests since many years until August 31st 2017. Time has come to retire and transfer the restaurant to young and engaged people, Nicole and Dieter who get a new approach to manage the restaurant with ideas. I thank all friends, guests and relatives for their support. My main goals have always been: make guests feel at home, let them enjoy fine food and make them having a good time. This will be also the intention of Nicole and Dieter from Germany. We are located in the Courtyard of the Royal Palm Square. Every 2nd Saturday of the month is an event: German-Night with a big buffet.
