I couldn't believe it when I saw the plates delivered to our table - deep fried yellow food and mashed potato. Not exactly exciting and not what I was expecting. Not a green in sight and not visually appealing at all. Yes, huge schnitzels but big is not better, three meals at our table all absolutely tasteless and bland, just... More

Yes, the schnitzels are huge.... Yes, the meals are simple. But that's exactly what you should expect from Der Metz, large portions, no-nonsense, good food. We've been coming here for years and this time did not disappoint. The schnitzels had a lovely crispy coat but were so soft you didn't need a knife to cut them. The mushroom sauce is... More

Visited here for a last minute dinner on a Tuesday evening, we came early & got a table straight away but, there were a few reserved tables & then later diners had to sit outside. Quite surprised how busy for a random Tuesday! Only 2 waitresses on who were really lovely but the food coming from the kitchen was quite... More

Took the family for a fathers day lunch. Love German food and this place didn't disappoint. If your going for lunch then suggest giving breakfast a miss as the portions are large. I had the pork hock the girls opted for schnitzel, the hock was huge and covered in crackle that was perfectly cooked, The service was faultless. The service... More

This restaurant is always super busy so make sure to book ahead if weekend or big group. Food is great, the schnitzel is enormous so only brave 2 pieces if you're absolutely starving. The hock and all meat joints are also massive! Food is authentic, with great choice of German beers (possible in a litre) and friendly German staff. Been... More

Went with a group and had a selection of typical German food, like Scheinshaxe, Bratwuerstchen, Schweinbraten, Sauerkraut, Rotkohl, Knoedel, Spaetzle, etc. Really good, enjoyed a German Weissbier as well. Will definitely be back.

We arrived without a reservation and were lucky we got a table in the right half of the restaurant. They don't seem to have both rooms open at all times. Both rooms were pretty much booked out that weekend night. The atmosphere was very relaxed and nice - both rooms are decorated in Bavarian style and also the music is... More

Second time at Der Metz - doesn't disappoint. Good food, a wide selection of beers and an authentic yet not stereotypical ambiance. If you miss home food far away - a great place to go!

This restaurant is in my top 10 ten of go to's. Great atmosphere and they cater for groups also. Child friendly and being just across from the beach is a fantastic location with plenty of parking available. Traditional fare with an unbelievable selection of beers. Dont hesitate.
