Special discount supper menu very good choices and value...excellent service, charming staff
We loved it. Great comfort food, lovely surroundings, social distancing and safety measures in place, attentive and cheerful staff. What more to ask.
Great venue with good food, great wines and lovely staff.
I am a regular so I found the lack of atmosphere a challenge. I'm sure it will recover, I will be back!
Just love it here
Overpriced although service was great
We had an excellent lunch. The restaurant felt safe and everything was very well organised. Our food was delicious and the service was efficient and all the staff were very pleasant. The tables inside were spaced out and we felt very comfortable in these difficult times. There was lots of hand sanitiser and the toilets were spotless. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, the staff have worked really hard to make eating out a normal, positive experience.
Excellent staff. Excellent food. Nothing more to say
The atmosphere was awesome. Service was faultless as was the food and wine. Such a great place for lunch.
love this place, great atmosphere great food and lots pf space ,,
Excellent venue for grabbing a pre sporting event tasty meal with nice wine in grand ambience.
Great for a business breakfast. Great service and good food.
Great food and ambience, good place for a date. Highly recommended.
Great food but very busy and service lacking.
First time visit to the German Gymnasium. We experienced outstanding service, like that you'd expect in a restaurant charging twice the price, excellent food quality, and good value.
My only criticism is about the service.
Service this time was not as expected and very average
Rushed and little care to guests and to details
While pouring wine the waiter spilled large amount out of glass and did not apologised and wiped the table
Stunning food in an impressive and vibrant space.
Desperate to keep our New Years Day tradition of pork and sauerkraut alive while in London, we found this place. What a great surprise. Lovely modern atmosphere with really good food. The pork knuckle and sauerkraut was outstanding. Great beer selection! Will come back next time in London!
Superb service, food, ambience, cleanliness. Very close to Kings X and St Pancras. Great place to start or finish a trip to London.
Frenetic, but buzzy. Good service.
As always, everything perfect except only this time waiter slightly mixed up order.
+ lovely openplan restaurant in exposed brick walled building. pleasant waiters/waitresses.
+ The food is really tasty, good portions, very nicely presented.
The lady at reception looked a little too serious !
Absolutely love coming here - the food is better than you often get in Germany, and is served in a lovely location. the staff are wonderful too and very attentive.
Great place to meet up for people from different areas.
Interesting place. Excellent coffee. Wish I could say the same about the Black Forest gateau ...
Great environment for a swift and efficient business breakfast
Some of the food we ordered was very good and some was ok
Yes I would recommend to try out at least once for a casual lunch meet up or work meeting. Not special occasion- Although We cannot fault of give any low rating for the hospitality& service - excellent, even a Birthday dessert plate was organised as per request. It’s just a shame the food wasn’t value for money.
Great food and service. Restaurant a bit too loud and tables too crammed together.
Great food and friendly atmosphere at a good value
Frühstück im German Gymnasium - ob Bavarian, German oder English breakfast - immer wieder ein Genuss. Hervorragende Qualität der Zutaten, aufmerksamer Service, optisch ansprechende Arrangements - immer wieder gerne.
Excellent service, great location and fantastic food!
Amazing service and great food!
Nice lunch experience.
Good food. Good service.
Beautiful place to enjoy great food with friendly, charming and smiling service
It was OK. Nice setting. The service was rather pressured, within 10 minutes there were 3 different staff members coming to take food orders (and ask for drink orders which they have already taken) - we hardly sat down and caught our breath from the rain and wind outside. I was promised the Haxe was large - it was substantially smaller than a normal german portion, more like a lamb shank. The crackling was a little chewy rather than totally crunchy. The meat was very tender inside, but the outside was very dried and tough. The dessert coupe was wonderful - liked that. When it came to paying, the waitress managed not to split the bill in half, with one slightly more than the other - I did not understand how that is possible?
Family lunch (a family favourite!)
Great beer and nice atmosphere for a client catchup
Lovely food and beer and feels very authentically German. But quite pricey - for a starter, main course (with necessary side dishes) and a few beers for 2, it came out close to £150.
Lovely food and great service. I will definitely be returning
