German Bistro, Clearwater Florida

, , No Comments


This place was ranked #4 out of restaurants in Clearwater. Since Jay and I both love German food we decided to try it! The reviews said there was FREE beer and wine but that's not what drove us to come here. A friend of Jay's always makes this beef dish called Roulade from my understanding it's basically a slow cooked beef roll with gravy and that was on the menu. So we get there and we are the ONLY TABLE in the whole restaurant?!?! This restaurant is #4 and we are the only people there at 7PM on a Saturday!! Anyways the mothers son runs this location (there are 2 locations only) and this guy was a character!! He told me I was only allowed to have water after my 5th glass of wine and kept encouraging us to finish our food. He was very interested in what brought us in, where we were from and gave us advice for what to do while we were here. They don't have a liquor license yet so you get St. Paulie Girl light or dark beer, and red or white wine for FREE!!! As much as you want they encourage you to take full advantage. Right when we walked in we were greeted with complimentary potato salad, cole slaw, and bread. Most places don't give you much right off the bat!

Everything on this table so far is FREE!!

Jay ordered the Roulade and I ordered Potato Pancakes with applesauce and a side of saeur kraut. (I wasn't that hungry after the slaw and potato salad)

The sauer kraut was AMAZING!! Warm and SOOO tender. I could have easily ate a few bowls of it. Jay got some kind of homemade noodles with his Roulade. I have never heard of them or had them until this meal but they were really delicious!! With the gravy and the beef it was paired nicely and you could taste the love in the home cooking methods. The Roulade had a really great flavor to it although the first roll of beef was not very tender. My potato pancakes were not good at all. My Dad made them a certain way growing up so this might be more traditional but I was not a fan. 

They do not have a website.
