A lovely, fun experience. The owner has been running this place for many years. She is friendly, fun and welcoming person. The food is also pleasant. I would recommend!

Have been coming here for years. You need to book ahead. Attentive service with great food - real Austrian menu. My Austrian Grandma used to get emotional coming here as she got nostalgic for her home country.

Always a joy. Delicious, filling food, welcoming staff and a cosy atmosphere. I love the little downstairs cellar bar. I'm vegetarian and although choice is limited - I still love to eat there. The side dishes are amazing - potatoes to die for. You pay for a 3 course meal, so be ready to be stuffed at the end. The... More

Visited with friends. Wasn't sure what to expect but pleasantly surprised. Unusual setting in a residential street but the warmest of welcomes awaited us. Good quality food, the price included three courses with plenty to eat. A little on the pricey side but an enjoyable evening.

hidden up a side street in Bearwood, Franzls is a gem. Genuine family run business. Friendly hosts, lovely relaxed atmosphere and fantastic food. Really tasty and very generous portions. Your main course dictates the price for your 3 courses but ranges from £20-£29. It's been a few years since I visited, but I won't be leaving it so long next... More

I've not been living in Birmingham long and have been trying out lots of restaurants; Franzls gets my vote. The food is scrummy and so different, the staff are helpful and friendly. Will impress my friends when they visit! Well done Franzls, keep up the good work

The menu is so different and appetising that I was hooked before I'd tasted anything, and when I did, was hooked for the rest of the meal. Delicious. Parking can be difficult but really, really well worth the effort. I shall definitely return.

Not been for a few years and guilty of forgetting how good this place is. Lovely staff, great food and a refreshing change from the more popular cuisines locally on offer.

You don't usually get that many German or Austrian restaurants around and this one is ticked away in the middle of a residential area, but it is quote a nice hidden gem. The atmosphere is quite quaint, the food is very authentic and of high quality and the service is brilliant. Very efficient and extremely friendly. Would certainly recommend this... More
