German delights

We got the set meal for two - fabulous German food. A good selection of pork, schnitzel, sausage, cabbage. My only negative the spatzle probably wasn't the best but I've been spoiled by my mother in law. My kids had the kids schnitzel and mash and came out raving about German food. Happy family!

As a German/Australian my wife and I were very disappointed with the meat platter for two $56. The food was tepid and bland which is difficult especially for sauerkraut. Walk on by. your experiences, you're helping travellers make better choices and plan their dream trips. Thank you!

Had to slake a thirst and get a bite for lunch, my wife's burger was huge and my sausage was tasty. I would recommend this for a goo beer and a lite meal.

Service wasn't fast but was friendly once they had noticed that all 6 of us had been sat there for at least 15mins - understaffed Food was good but expensive for the basic fare that it was but to be fair all the places cost more in cairns so in line with the competition it was reasonable.

The beers are good, the live music is fantastic, but think twice if you are going out for a nice meal. After a long wait the food arrived. The pork dishes were average and loveless, the Spätzle were a shame, cold, boring, lots of water on the plate, worst ones I've ever had, pizza looked unappetising and was just average.... More

We went to the Bavarian beerhouse to have some big beers and a feed. Service was more than welcoming. We got offered a nice table outside. Beers have been good value for money. Food was genuine like I know it from south Germany. The best part of the night was the live musician.

Our meal here was okay but nothing to rave about. My pizza was just like a normal pizza, quite big which is great but nothing too special. My partner's schnitzel was average too and quite a bit smaller than we expected. The beer is delicious though!

The Australian produces very good beer and they are available in plenty in Cairns, Australia. But, occasionally one yearns for another variety, especially the European type. If you miss German beer, do not hesitate, head to the Bavarian Beerhouse. It is one among the rows of restaurants and bars on the Esplanade, Cairns. It overlooks the stretch of lawns, Broadwalk,...

The service is shockingly bad. I got the impression they're backpackers. But that is managements fault for not giving adequate training in basics. That's no excuse for bad service having high turnover Food very poor. We didn't drink the beer. Maybe thats why it had good reviews. Definitely won't be back or recommend. It's a shame the one in Brisbane... More
