Let me start by saying I am from Germany so very particular about German food. We are back visiting in Ft Myers Beach again and thrilled to be able to dine at Heidi's Bistro. We have been thinking of this food and restaurant since our last visit. We started with a excellent pea soup and a pretzel. Then for our... More

The menu reads "hand breaded" chicken tenders under the appetizers menu. I'm no expert but machine breaded at Tyson Foods. Is what was served on my plate.

We ate here last night with friends. They live here but had not tried it before - they will be back. The food, wine and beer were all good and a good selection. Heidi is very friendly and makes you most welcome. Do take her advice on which sides to have that compliment your main course. A bonus, we were... More

We went to Heidi's for breakfast this morning and the food was excellent, as was the service, the promptness in which our food was served, and the neatness and cleanliness of the room. I am anxious to return for their lunch and dinner!

An overall fabulous dining experience in a casual atmosphere. You are greeted at the door as though you're family, and you feel like family by the time your meal is done. The lobster bisque is the best we've ever tasted, and the same goes for the Wiener Schnitzel. It's well worth the effort of fighting traffic to get here; you... More

Our second time visit it in 9 days for breakfast. Food is fantastic. French toast was cinnamony goodness. Authentic German option including home made rye bread was delicious. Eggs Benedict was probably the best I have ever had. The house fried potatoes are a must. The family owners provide excelllent service. Definitely a must visit while in the island!!
