“Good food, dated (or, maybe, quaint) decor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

My family enjoys German food on occasion, so we were pleased to hear positive opinions about this restaurant. We were "greeted" by a perplexed looking woman who seemed taken aback we were there. I can only imagine they she was unaccustomed to seeing children (my neatly dressed young teen and school-aged sons). It was obvious the average age of the clientele here is significantly older, but her reaction was off-putting. The restaurant reminded me of my grandparent's living room, but it is not necessarily bad to be different. The live piano was nice and really surprised my younger son. The service was friendly. My sons enjoyed the wurst platter, and my husband and I both had sauerbraten. I felt it was nowhere near sour enough--but it never is for me. The potato dumpling was delicious. The greeter woman was more friendly on the way out, asking if the children liked the food. Give it a try and bring your open-minded, well-behaved young children just to shake things up for them AND for this restaurant!

“Wunderbar!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

Enjoyed a truly wonderful lunch at this lovely restaurant. The somewhat stark exterior belies the very attractive, comfortable dining area... decorated with Art Nouveau touches, interesting art, and attractively set tables with linen and fresh flowers. The wide-ranging menu offers something for everyone. We enjoyed a delicious crab cake entree, with interesting accompaniments; and, a traditional Brat- & Knackwurst plate, with delicious roasted potatoes and red cabbage. Both meals were lovingly prepared; and the service exceptional. Wish we lived nearby!!

“Nice Special Occasion Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

This is a lovely restaurant to celebrate a special occasion, not sure if I'd come here on a regular basis. Our server, Michele, was very friendly and attentive. The restaurant itself is a bit dated in decor. Now for the food...prices are a bit on the high side. The food itself was pretty good, but not inline with the prices charged. Bottom line is, if you're looking for good German food, this is the place to go...but be prepared to pay.

“Best German food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014

German restaurants are not easy to find and excellent German food even harder. Heidelberg meets all expectations, and the little extra touch of one's name on the table makes the occasion special

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

We seem to be eating our way through Cocoa Beach and we had lunch at the Heidelberg restaurant. Mmmm wonderful also and atmosphere so quiet and enjoyable. I had the Hausmacher Wurstplatte and it was fantastic. Husband had the smoked fillet trout and loved it. We ask for a to go meal of the fillet steak tartar and the cook was so accommodating, we will have that this evening in our room.
