Good Beer

We shared the sausage platter which provided an adequate light dinner for two. My wife had mango raspberry cider and was very pleased. My pale ale was the best beer I had since we left Sydney. Nice spot to sit and enjoy the evening parade on the Esplanade.

Myself and 5 of my closest family and friends ate and drank here. Nothing went right. There was no table sevice, the music wouldn't have sound out of place in an 80's Berlin Gay bar. (Bad Euro Techno) The food when it arrived over an hour later was bland, colourless and everything looked deep fried. The pork knuckle which was... More

I must say that our experinece was one we'dratther forget. We went there for lunch adn to try the food and found it sadly wanting both in taste and quality. I had the schnitzel which was overcooked, just warm, bland and tough, I couldn't finish it, far to much sinew and had to chew. My partner had the sausage and... More

Wanted something different and found the Bavarian Beerhouse. The food was excellent. The German beer was very large (I didn't have any) and all in our party enjoyed it. The wiener snitchel was outstanding (actually couldn't finish it as it was very large). Ate outside and watched the crowd go by. Highly recommend. Near the water.

The famous pork knuckle was very tasty and their special "pizza" was recommend. They had various beer to choose and we tried two types and both were good. We went there early so only one staff was serving all tables, waiting time was a little long but worth it.

The food was revolting! All of it! How can a restaurant get a vege pizza so wrong? It was inedible. My friend had schnitzel and it was tough and bland. The side of veges was a joke. Tiny amount of microwaved frozen packet veges.

I have had the same dish Pork knuckle with a stein about 4 times now and will continue to do so every tune I return. They are consistent with their high standard of food and always have friendly staff and a great atmosphere to start your night! Highly recommend. Their breakfast menu is also a must try for something different.

One of the best reasonably priced places on the esplanade in cairns. Pork knuckle and schnitzels are excellent as is the mash and red cabbage! Great selection of beers as well! Love the tap 5 with some lemon slices! I always make it a point to come here when we come to cairns!
