Gerritz Restaurant’s authentic German menu includes Sauerbraten and Spatzle (beef pot roast with homemade noodles), Leberkas mit Ei (German meat loaf with spinach and a fried egg) and Kassler Chops and Mash. Gerritz Restaurant combines home cooking with an easy-going atmosphere; and the chameleon on the Gerritz logo is a symbol of their adaptability that gives priority to clients’ personal requirements. It’s owned and run by patron chef Gerrit Pelchen with his wife Siri.

In 1973 Gerrit escaped from East Germany in a truck loaded with kitchen cupboards. He’s been creating gourmet dishes ever since. With over forty years’ experience in the catering industry, he not only specialises in German cuisine but also in other international delights such as Canadian salmon steak, Hawaiian pork chops and fillet steak with chocolate chilli sauce!

The restaurant itself has an unpretentious open-terrace style, with a well-tended garden dotted with comfortable dining areas, thatched open plan spaces and decorative seating under umbrellas. Everything is brilliantly colourful with yellow and red walls, multi coloured seating and vibrant paintings – all coming together to create an effervescent but relaxed atmosphere. The crazy cocktail hour on Fridays is popular, with the Grasshopper, Blue Hawaiian, Mudslide, Greek Sunset, Margaritas, Tequila Sunrise and Black Russian all served here.

Loyalty program
Gerritz Restaurant offers a loyalty program to reward regulars. Simply fill in a membership card and the rewards start immediately with a free drink of your choice. You will be credited with points each time you spend ZMW10. As you accumulate points you can cash them in for a complimentary bottle of wine, free dinners or cocktail snacks. If you bring your friends and business associates you’ll earn credits for yourself.

Catering service
On Saturdays the restaurant is closed to the public to give priority to private events that can be booked in advance. As well as providing a good restaurant venue, Gerritz also offers outside catering services – to anyone, anywhere and at any time – quite literally! Gerritz will provide meals for boardroom and office lunches, seminars, conferences, cocktail parties, buffet lunches and dinners and also a marquee hire service.

Gerritz are also able to offer catering services for weddings of both small and medium sizes from as little as 10 guests up to 400 guests. The restaurant also offers a bar service with a wide selection of drinks. Gerritz – a good choice if you want a menu that is authentically different.
