Formerly a fully functioning gym and the venue for the first National Olympic Games in 1866, German Gymnasium is now a sparkling representation of a European Grand Café. Dine on the mezzanine level overlooking the main floor, or at the chic Meister Bar.

The German Gymnasium menu is German-inspired and includes a selection of Mittel-European dishes, though is by no means limited to it. A more formal dining experience on the mezzanine level, the restaurant offers the likes of veal schnitzel with lingonberry compote, and whole slow-roast free-range goose with braised red cabbage.

Traditional desserts include Black Forest gateau, apple strudel with vanilla sauce, and a selection of farmhouse cheeses with fig mustard. Find the Meister cocktail bar upstairs, and sample one of the intricately designed foam cocktails, or a light bite from the bar’s menu.

German Gymnasium in King’s Cross offers 3 different dining areas, each with accompanying menus. This highly original creation from D&D is situated opposite the entrance to St Pancras International Station.

    The only valid reason to book is because the location is really special . Forget food and service . Touristic .

    Nice place, nice people. Well managed, friendly staff. Food is not so special and a bit expensive but the atmosphere is the right one for a friendly dinner.
