    Our bread and olives arrived but just as it arrived, so did the main course! The waiter said the chef sent it and proceeded to place the main course in front of us. There was not much room! The aubergine schnitzel was too big for the plate and the crowded table which meant we couldn’t enjoy our bread and olives and the enormous main course. To reach for the bread my sleeve dunked in the tomato sauce!! We waited for the dessert menu, ordered, but the table wasn’t cleaned as the desserts arrived! It was supposed to be a celebration lunch for my daughter who has just graduated and got her first job. We were not even asked if we wanted coffee to finish! I am very disappointed ☹️

    Dear Maria, Thank you so very much for your recent visit and for taking the time to leave us your feedback. Please accept our most sincere apologies, that the main courses came out too quickly- we will be reminding our junior waiters how to handle situations like this better- thank you for bringing this to our attention. I'm glad you enjoyed the atmosphere and apologies again, that service was not up to our usual standard on this occasion. We hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you back at German Gymnasium in the future. Warm Regards, Jo & GG Team

    The service is great with a very knowledgable, attentive and helpful waiter. However the food is a complete rip off. Green and White asparagus at £15 contained not one single tip of either colour just a few shredded stalks. No wonder the place is now half empty
    German GymnasiumResponded 1 day ago
    Dear DCJO, Thank you for your recent visit and for taking the time to leave us your feedback. I am very glad you were happy with the service and the ambience. I'm sorry the asparagus salad fell short on this occasion. Your comments were passed on to our team of chefs and improvements made. I hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. Warm Regards, Jo & GG Team
