This place is very intimate and fills up fast. Reservations are a must. We had the Jaeger Schnitzel and a new Schnitzel recipe with spinach and mushrooms not on the menu....yet. The beer is very cold. Authentic German beer like Paulaner and Hofbrauhaus. The owner is very pleasant and attentive. The chef/cook came out to see if we liked the... More

There were several German people eating next to us, always a good sign. They sang German songs and struck up conversation with the owners, it was really heart-warming to see that kind of camaraderie. The ambiance feels like you're sitting with a big family. The food is some of the best I've had in FL yet. I can't wait to... More

Tonite our family gathered together at German Bistro 11 and we were not disappointed. There were 10 of us and we had a fantastic time. The restaurant is quaint and authentically German with all of our favourite German foods. The service was excellent and everyone was friendly ... the family who own and operate the Bistro and even the people... More

Late dinner on a Thursday night, no reservations. They gave us the last table they had. This appears to be a very popular spot, reservations recommended. Family run, the daughter was our server and the mother our chef. We had corn chowder, a soup of the day, an enormous serving of warm potato salad on a bed of greens, and... More

Dear Eric, thank you for your nice review! We are very happy that you enjoyed our food, service and atmosphere! In regards to the big portions..You ordered the " German Bistro Salad" which is a complete meal on it's own and therefore the serving is plenty. The German cuisine is also not really an " appetizer friendly" type of cuisine... More

The owner Irina greets you at the door as you enter little restaurant tucked away in the corner of a small strip mall. Three times a week she has Richard the accordion player entertain as you dine in her delicious homemade German cuisine. Apple strudel for dessert is delicious. If you like German food. ..try this place.

A quaint little place run by a family who provide great service and a very personal welcome to all that come. The place is small seating perhaps 40 at the most thus reservations are essential. They start you off with bread, butter with herbs and cole slaw. My wife and I both enjoyed a schnitzel mine being the German Bistro... More
