A new restaurant in a huge listed building near King's Cross.

Anyone who’s seen ‘Restoration Home’ knows that turning a listed building into something useful is tricky. At German Gymnasium, a mid-Victorian pile between King’s Cross and St Pancras stations, the challenge was massive. The gym is huge in floor-space and very tall. Keeping the memorable features (and keeping English Heritage happy) was never going to be easy.

D&D, the new owners, have nailed it. There are three separate spaces, all lovely and all massive: ground-floor café, restaurant upstairs, and the bar. (Total covers: over 400.) But they have managed to keep noise levels down even when the space is pretty packed. We could hardly believe our ears when we discovered we could converse without shouting.

The restaurant has more formal food, and prices to go with it: you’ll probably drop at least £75 for two before drinks and service. Friends have said it cost too much, despite the attractions of a schnitzel 'the size of a single duvet', and was marred by a demographically inappropriate DJ. So much for easy-going noise levels. 

Their report confirmed our suspicion that this is best as a daytime place. We ate lunch in the café, and were thrilled by nearly every dish. Two traditional soups, tangy goulash and beef broth with liver dumplings, were generous in portion. Three sandwiches were fabulous, especially open-face herring and apple and brown shrimp with marie rose sauce – sophisticated comfort food. 

The downside: portion size. Though the soups were generous, the sandwiches were small – and prices ranged from £9 to £11.50. True satisfaction will cost something like £20 for food only. Cheap eats it ain't.  

There were also problems with staff training: we waited several times while they chatted to each other. A good twenty minutes after ordering a (delicious) strudel for dessert, it became obvious that they had simply forgotten about it. That problem was fixed easily when they knocked it off the bill; the larger service problems can be solved with staff training, which D&D are more than capable of providing. A trickier snag is the staff dress code. Men in grey suits looked corporate, while women wore teensy, ‘60s-style skirts that at times threatened their modesty. 

Despite the downers, we are pumped for this gymnasium. It’s got the look, and it’s got substance. Going to the gym just got a lot more fun.

What a stunning venue in a  very convenient location. As soon as you walk into the restaurant, you feel the sense of opulence and class. It was big but intimate, buzzy but not noisy and the staff were friendly and attentive. The food is not what you would expect and didn't taste at all like the German food I know. Everything was contemporary and gives more of a nod to German food rather than being German. Delicious and worth a visit.

Built like a Bavarian weightlifter and dwarfed by a bauble decked & jewel lit tree, the restaurant inside German Gymnasium at Kings Cross is one of the loveliest places in which to enjoy festive fare right now. An enormous space, lofty with arched ceilings, feels cosy and intimate thanks to the ground floor Grand Café tables which circle the heavy branched fir and the first-floor mezzanine from which diners in the restaurant can peep down into the gentle bustle below. If all you’re after is a drink designed to smooth the rough edges of London travel, the utterly gorgeous Meister Bar must be one of the prettiest watering holes in the capital, a vision of spotless marble, sparkling bottles and sugared almond chairs.

Service here is excellent from the warm welcome at the front desk where coats, scarves, wheeled suitcases and snow shoes – all the possible paraphernalia of Kings Cross in December – are graciously and swiftly removed to the wait staff who sashay so easily & effortlessly between tables you’d be forgiven for thinking they were gliding on steel blades across an icy sheeted floor. A late lunch booking on the first Sunday in December gave us time to enjoy the brunch menu which is vast but without feeling as though items are on there for the sake of it. 

Kasekrainer are grilled pork and cheese sausages. Mine arrives gently curved, gorgeously bronzed and in possession of a beautiful shiny skin that snaps neatly with each cut. Puffs of airy truffled potato puree are cut through by piles of silky sauerkraut, heavy on the tang, and a substantial sprinkle of crispy onions are all that’s needed to accompany my giant of the sausage world although the addition of my heavy-handed dollops of clean hot mustard also go down rather well.  Chicken jager schnitzel are a vision of golden crispiness, pummelled flat and fried to perfection whilst smoked schinkenknacker are a meat-lovers dream of how the world of sausages should be. 

Dessert brings to mind the thought 'go big or go home'. Rarely has this been more appropriate than here where wedges of Sachertorte stand tall & proud, shiny topped and squidgy middled just like me as the last forkful disappeared. Strudel is crispy edged, softly fruited and puddled with vanilla flecked custard and the Berliner Luft & Rote Grutze is a glass globe of a dessert filled with sharp berry compote, lemon pudding and that Abigail’s Party classic, a jaunty brandy snap.

It’s not just that the food was superb here and it’s not just that the wine was easily drunk and it’s not just that the service was enthusiastically personal. It’s that all of those things come together, on my doorstep, in the somewhat unlikeliest of locations. Could I eat like a German every day? Without switching to the sort of stretchy pants that usually only come out around 4.30pm on December 25th, probably not. Does this place make me want too anyway? Hell yeah it does.

I went here for lunch with some friends and really enjoyed it!

I was so impressed with the interior decor of this place considering it used to be a gym! It had the most beautiful floral centrepiece in the grand cafe and a great atmosphere.

There is also a restaurant upstairs or you could have drinks at the bar.

We ordered some burgers and chips, tomato and smoked mozzarella risotto, and pumpkin and sage ravioli for mains. The portions appareared small and at first we were worried we would still be hungry but they are surprisingly quite filling. They even have their own vegetarian menu which was another plus point for me. The only downside is the price! Everything is quite expensive so be prepared when you get the bill.

My top tip would be for dessert definately order the warm apricot crumble with yoghurt ice cream and warm apple strudel! They are seriously heavenly!

I had really high expectations of German Gymnasium but unfortunately left definitely wanting more.... Firstly, the good. The venue is gorgeous, with huge ceilings and an upscale warehouse vibe without being too hard too loud. We dined downstairs by their long bar and loved looking around. They've definitely got the attention to detail down in the decor, sadly lacking in the rest of the place. The bad: the service. I normally hate complaining about service and having previously been a waitress I understand how difficult it can be and have a huge amount of sympathy for waiting staff and usually go for the benefit of the doubt. Unfortunately here the service was nearly unilaterally poor. Items were forgotten if they arrived at all. At one point we forlornly watched our long-awaited wine doing a tour around the restaurant as one of our waiters tried every table but ours to find it's rightful owner. Despite trying to get his attention it took about five minutes to end up back to us. The food was also incredibly sub-par. I went for the currywurst which was served like a stack of jenga, weirdly cut up into little bits and stacked up with the curry sauce over the chips. The sausage was bland and floppy and the 6 chips it was served with a bit stale. The chicken schnitzel was bland, underdone (not at all crispy ) and instantly forgettable for the £18 or so price tag. Now for the ugly. This played on my mind for awhile after and not really sure why but it bothered me more than many interactions have in awhile. The food and drink was expensive and the service bad so when it came to the bill we requested to take the charge off and leave cash instead - still leaving 10% but not the 12.5 added. When we asked to take the service off we were questioned in a manner not unlike the full Spanish Inquisition. The served demanded to know why, so when we explained the issues with the service said he was going to immediately take it up with our waiter - when actually he was the only member of staff who hadn't been terrible. We explained he was fine it was found lacking in the rest of the staff but he wouldn't let go of this idea and was very rude and hostile. It left an odd impression - I often tip in cash anyway to make sure it does go to the staff serving and in the kitchen rather than the restaurant. We felt sorely let down by our experience - should be added this was on a Wednesday so I dread to think what it'd be like on a busy evening.... the beer is good and the steins are fun but I wish they'd pay a little more attention to the food and service....

We had the afternoon tea set on a busy Sunday afternoon.  For the afternoon tea, there are two themes, ‘The German’ or the ‘The Austrian’ variations to chose. For the priced at £18.50 per person, I think it's quite on point. The whole set comes with three savoury filling rolls, three sweet treats, and a selection of coffee or tea. The stars of the afternoon tea set are the black forest macaroon from ‘The German’ and apple strudel with vanilla sauce from ‘The Austrian’. If visit again I might just order the strudel on its own. 


The seating is not the most comfortable and the table is over crowded once the food and drinks are on it. It seems German Gymnasium is more like a place to have drinks with friends and not a cozy place for an afternoon tea. (We did stay for more drinks after our teas. )


Will recommend to friends who want to try an alternative afternoon tea than traditional Britsh afternoon tea. But personally, I still like my scones in my afternoon tea ritaul.

I had brunch at the ground floor restaurant with 3 other friends one Sunday. The atmosphere was relaxed and the decor was beautiful with exposed bricks combined with modern bar area and nicely spaced tables. Food was of good quality - we had 3 different German sausages and all tasted wonderful. The white asparagus was also fresh. Price was a little on the higher side. Service was initially good but became slow when the place started to fill up. Overall, I would return again, perhaps to sit outside and watch the world go by if the weather is good.

One of the most instagrammable venues in London again. A beautiful space that used to be a gym converted into a two-level restaurant bar. The ground floor is the main restaurant and has a bar and upstairs overlooks the ground floor with one of the most beautiful bars in London with matching drinks. There is outdoor space with tables that you can watch the hustle and bustle of King's Cross. We did not have dinner here but the little bar snacks were tasty.The bar manager and staff were very friendly, too.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere and venue and a good place to come for a special occasion. The food was good but overall a bit overpriced. I came here for dinner but will come back for brunch.

German Gymnasium is set in a former gym which has been renovated into a beautiful restaurant and bar area. We went in the evening for dinner and opted for the 3 course menu for £30. We were seated upstairs so had a good view of the restaurant and bar area below. We were served bread which came out with butter and a cream cheese garlic herb spread, which was delicious. The cocktail menu had a funky selection with one we chose being served with liquid ice. Be warned they're quite strong.

For starters I had the salmon tartar which was ok. I had the schnitzel for main which was quite rustic and finished with the Apple strudel. The service was good until they told us we couldn't have any more water as our 2 hour slot was up.

When we made the booking, we hadn't been notified about the 2 hours rule so we were quite surprised. As a good will gesture they took the drinks off the bill after we conveyed our frustration.

Tastemaker

Loved it! The location is so easy and the decor stunning. 


What I really liked as a brunch fanatic where it can get a bit dull reading the same menus over and over was The German Gymnasium has a really unusual and exciting menu. One of our group had a 'German power breakfast'  which was a humongous, cheese dripping sandwich that looked amazing. I liked that they offered size options 1 or 2 egg benedicts with differential prices. The food was all presented beautifully.


I had some poached sausages and bread. I'm really glad I tried it but it was too odd and wasn't really that pleasant to eat. 2 anaemic sausages arrive in  pot of stock. They had a really tough skin and it wasn't clear how to eat them with the bread made it all an odd experience. The bread was very nice though. The service was exceptional - friendly and attentive but low key.


I really want to go back and try more things!

German gymnasium, one cannot help but marvel at the beautiful architecture of this modern mittel European inspired restaurant housed in the former gym. It's grand cafe with central floral display, bar and comfy seating are both welcoming and elegant. We opted for the brunch menu which looked great but was somewhat disappointing. The only saving grace was the poached eggs. I found the food rather bland and dry. Sadly This fry up didn't live up to my expectations.

Tastemaker

First things first; if you're after the more traditional food such as bratwurst and goulash, make sure you book in the café as this menu is not served in the main restaurant.

I was lucky enough to have dinner upstairs and have the opportunity to choose from their more formal menu so I decided to have the rack of lamb whilst my friend opted for the schnitzel. Portion size is generous here and I've never been more glad to have not ordered a starter or dessert. My lamb was perfectly pink and served upon creamy samphire risotto whilst the veal schnitzel was huge but very well cooked.

The cocktails are more on the experimental side but their sparkling wine (or German prosecco) was sweet and light with just the right amount of fizz.

The staff were polite and friendly as you'd expect and we never had to wait long for service.

If there's one reason to go it would be for the building itself; an old German gym (literally) now converted into a large warehouse-type space with leather seating and 20s style ball lights creating a romantic and intimate atmosphere.

Perfect for any occasion and I will definitely be going back!

Location, location, location! Who'd have thought you could hop off the train at Kings Cross and step into a quirky decadent grade II listed building with a menu of exotic comfort food! Perfect for meeting friends for working across the city for a convenient supper. The staff are possibly the friendliest and most attentive in London. When we had finished our meal we were escorted to a cosy booth by the bar to continue our lively chatter. Again, in my signature style, I must mention the loos! Immaculate luxury, characterful decor with illustrations on the ceiling and who wouldn't want yodelling during a comfort break. Bravo.

All my favorite things, Currywurst, apple strudel and stunning listed buildings. Yes this really was a German gymnasium, actually the first purpose built gymnasium in England which hosted the indoor events at the first Olympic Games back in 1866. Luckily for me I did not have to do a rope climb to the top of the colossal 57ft ceiling. Beautifully converted in partnership with the Conran group this is a sleek and contemporary destination. Having lived in Germany as a child I adore German food, so very happy to find an ten times upgrade to the basic and disappointing Herman ZeGerman, you can now enjoy as much German sausage as you can eat in style. The KX Currywurst with triple cooked chips and house sauce £11.50 and a well with every penny £7.00 apple strudel with enough cream to drown in. Highly recommend.

Stunning conversion, stylishly presented. The space is quite vast and buzzy, yet somehow still feels quite intimate.


The downstairs Grand Cafe showcases a good array of German delights. The wurst with cheese came with creamy truffle mash and saurkraut, with sides of crispy onions and mustard. It was all very tasty and filling, so don't be tempted with ordering lots of sides unless you are VERY hungry. 


Good cocktails and coolers. And it's pocket-friendly, considering the grandeur. Recommended.

This is hands down the best restaurant i've been to in a while, and the best German-themed menu in London. Firstly the building is beautiful. Some may be put off by the sense of grandeur, perhaps thinking it may be too expensive, but the prices were cheaper than expected and the staff were all extremely friendly and helpful, not at all snooty like some waiting staff in places of this calibre, and they all went out of their way to ensure we had a great dining experience. We were seated on the terrace, very pretty and intimate with its fairy light lit shrubbery, and the food was absolutely delicious and authentic to German cuisine. We shared a weißwurst and a käsekrainer, very reasonably priced between 11 and 15 pounds, the sausages were really large and both came with generous side portions of pretzels, German mustard pots, potato purée and crispy onions. The cocktails were also tasty and nicely presented, mine came with its very own decorative cinnamon stick which smelt amazing. The food, drinks, service, atmosphere, setting and overall experience were top notch, even the loos are fancy. I've been recommending it highly to anyone who will listen since!


A very nice place to have a drink after work. The architecture of the building is really beautiful, especially inside with a mix of warehouse style metal and old bricks. I didn't have dinner but went to the bar upstairs which offers a good view of the place and is more quiet. The drinks and bits menu is nice and dense, although there were only gin cocktails. We went for a bottle of wine and fritters - all very good. They also bring you some nice homemade (I think) pretzels over and over again which is quite rare. The staff was acted weird though and the prices were a bit too high in my opinion, but I can't deny the good atmosphere!

King's Cross has undergone a dramatic makeover in the past few years and the rapid renewal of the area has attracted a barrage of restaurants nearby. Where once you'd have been lucky to score a railway coffee and plastic sandwich from WH Smith's, your options are varied and multitudinous. German Gymnasium is one of the newer offerings in the area and is part of the D&D group. The building it's housed in is beautiful and sensitively restored; it's definitely a great space to have dinner in and the buzzy feel of it would make it a great date location. I've eaten here twice, both times in the cheaper Grand Cafe, and the offerings are what you might expect from the European grand cafe tradition - gourmet versions of wurst, spatzele and schnitzel. Whilst all the food is delicious, it errs on being overpriced (a wurst in a bun with all the toppings will set you back £12.50 without any sides) and the service on both visits was friendly but sluggish. The German Gymnasium certainly isn't the wurst (be glad I saved this pun until the end) but if you're looking for better value German fare, there's plenty of other options in the capital. 


I only drunk and ate at the bar outside, but if I could give this place six stars I would! Fantastic location, beautiful interior. The service was great, the bar staff were friendly and happy to offer recommendations. The beer and wine were lovely, but the extra star is for the food, it is delicious!!! Probably the best burger I've had in London, the hot dog was amazing also. Will be going back there as soon as I can to try the restaurant properly, cannot wait!

For my brother's birthday, I decided to treat him to a meal. We decided to have lunch at German Gymnasium for TWO reasons: because of how grand the interior looked in pictures (their website + Instagram) and because their menu was enticing. Well, we definitely did not regret picking this venue! 


The service was great - from the receptionist's greeting and cloakroom service to the waiters and payment procedures. We were well looked after from beginning to end and I liked that our waiter checked in on how we were doing throughout our meal but not to the extent where it was excessive or annoying. The waiters were also proactive in offering sauces or water - attention to the little things really does make a difference and a good one at that!


For the main meal, I went for the Steak Tartare. I know, quite unusual to order at a German restaurant but I hadn't had it in a long time so I wanted to satisfy that craving. As a main meal, it comes served with a sourdough melba crisp, a simple side salad with a mustard dressing and triple cooked chips. This was honestly an insane amount of food, even for someone with a large appetite like myself! I was able to finish the steak tartare and the salad but simply couldn't even touch the chips. I had a bite to taste them and boy, were they delicious (as you would expect after being triple cooked)! But having chips with this dish can often make it very dense and too filling. Instead, I enjoyed the steak tartare on its own or on some of the bread from the bread basket that is placed on the table once you're seated. 


We both decided against ordering dessert, despite how delicious they sounded, because we were truly too full. Instead, we both went for a coffee. I had a single espresso, which was strong and bitter - just the way I like it! My brother had the Black Forest coffee, which was a specialty coffee with an added shot of cherry liquor and topped with whipped cream and cocoa powder. Both came with a small piece of milk chocolate, which was surprisingly good! I am not a fan of milk and white chocolate because they are often too sweet for my tastes but this particular one was rich and creamy and not sweet at all! 


As it was a birthday meal, I called beforehand to inform the receptionist. At the end of our meal, the waiter came out with a complimentary dessert plate, which consisted of three milk chocolate truffles with a candle stuck into it and 'happy birthday' written in chocolate sauce on the plate. This was a nice gesture and quite frankly, a good choice of dessert! As I mentioned earlier, we were both really full from our mains, so having truffles over a piece of cake was a short and sweet way to end our meal!

German Gymnasium is located in a beautiful brick building built in 1865. It was London's first purpose-built gymnasium, funded entirely by London's German community, hence the name. The interiors are exquisite, with high ceilings, ornate columns and a beautiful floral centerpiece. On my visit I sat on the tranquil patio, on the square behind King's Cross Station, but lined with flower beds to provide some separation. The atmosphere is relaxed but very classy and the service was friendly but also very professional. The menu is meat heavy with a focus on traditional German food but with some lighter options to balance it out. It's good to note that there is a separate vegetarian menu that can be requested. I went for Sunday brunch, which was easy to get a table for before 12:00 without a reservation. I can imagine it being very booked up though for dinner. My tea was served in a nice silver pot and I had it along with a delicious and decadent salted caramel and almond muffin. I then had a baked egg, vegetable and goat cheese skillet which was also great. The brunch prices are quite reasonable but I noticed it can get pricy for lunch and dinner dishes. The toilets were very fancy and well kept but also had an element of fun to them - German circus style music was being played and the wall paper was quirky with old fashioned sketches of people at the gym. The whole experience was so enjoyable, I would highly recommend to anyone to go and have a meal at German Gymnasium.

After taking an age to organise this with colleagues, I can finally say I got to dine here! Still debating whether it was worth the wait though.

Not to say that the experience was overly negative but I think I just expected more from the food.

I had the Swabian Zwiebel Rostbraten – steak to the rest of us! The pairing of caramelised and crispy onions were novel and appealing to the palate for the first few bites but toward the end, became overpowering and sickly. The steak was also not cooked to my requested medium rare which was a shame. It came with some dry spätzle which was quite bland and didn’t add anything to the meal.

My colleagues went for the set menu, at £30 for three courses, it was very reasonable. Their fish dishes looked great and they were particularly taken with the salad starter.

Our waitress was absolutely delightful and very attentive to the needs of our table.

The building itself is a beautifully restored, listed former gymnasium. I would highly recommend coming here for a cocktail or two, purely for the surroundings.

Tastemaker

A very strange place to eat. My friend and I chose to eat in here to admire the decor and take in the amazing architecture of the building. This is the kind of place you should have drinks when you announce your engagement and I could see it being used in a film for exactly that purpose. 


The food however is over priced for what it is. £25 for a Wiener Schnitzel? Really? Some items are a bit more reasonably priced, and I definitely devoured what I ordered. I was just somewhat disappointed that the menu was so bland and uninventive. German food can be exciting and innovative but I think the chefs have gone with a traditional German menu that I would rather eat at a location like Herman Ze German. 


For a place with an amazing look, and pretty attentive staff I hope they up their menu game. We liked our hotdogs and sides but a place that looks like this should be serving more impressive food, I would be unfazed by the prices if the food was as special as the venue.

4 of us came here for Mother’s Day and had a lovely time. We were seated upstairs in the restaurant where we were perfectly waited on. The salmon & shrimp starter, beef fillet & cheese board were all very tasty and beautifully presented. I certainly left feeling very full and content!! Just as we were leaving they gave my mum a gift too which was a lovely touch and something that would make me definitely want to book again. Welcome to Kings Cross!

Had lunch here on a Sunday - we were just walk in's and had no trouble getting a table. It was quiet but given the interior is impressive the fact is was a little on the empty side didn't detract from the experience. I can imagine it would be quite buzzy when busy. The weekend lunch menu is pretty varied - from some very German dishes like bratwurst on brioche, to oysters and seafood. There is plenty of bar seating upstairs which would be a great spot on a busy night.

Tastemaker

Wow. The space. Probably the coolest restaurant interior-wise I've ever been to. Staff was young, a little lost at times but smiling and helpful, trying their best. Make sure to order the pig-sized schnitzel. You won't be leaving this place hungry that's for sure. Who knew German food could be so exciting?


Famous to Londoners as the landmark where your minicab will pick you up off the Eurostar, the German Gymnasium has the perfect name: it's a hearty, chest-expanding, but ultimately bumptious experience. There's been a fad for 'Continental' and 'European' places in London over the last few years, mainly, you suspect, because the tastes of Mittel-Europa are hard-wired into the British palate: meat, beer, stodge, beer, pastry, beer. And a beer. Here, that is all this translated into fine dining. It's an uncomfortable reminder that this city prizes money above everything else, and that its punters will cheerfully fork out £100+ for meat and two veg, provided they get a #success validation on the side. You can't hide that this is peasant food, for peasants. Rich peasants.

This is a restaurant you walk into and say 'WOW'. It is absolutely stunning; jaw droppingly so. The ground floor houses the Grand Cafe ideal for brunches, lunches and light dinners. Upstairs raises the bar with a restaurant serving a fuller menu. The food is German - think schnitzel, sausages and more - and it's absolutely delicious. The pureed potatoes that come with one of the hard to pronounce sausages is something you'll dream about. This restaurant will offer you something within your price range be it the cafe or restaurant and you will have a wonderful time in either. The bathrooms are also a delight - German music plays out amongst illustrations of ladies on bikes (none the wiser as to what then men's bathroom offers). My only criticism - the service needs a bit of polish but they've only been open a week so I'll forgive them.
