Spectacular Night Out

The last night was definitely a spectacular one. This place rocks. We had dinner here and the food was great but it got even better: while we have been finishing our beers a guy showed up and started playing on a accordion. He was really good after a while the whole place was singing to tunes like... read more

We decided to give this place a go because of their inviting lunch menu. After being seated by a nice young girl in traditional German dress we ordered a seafood basket and a spinach salad with strawberries and feta. Both dishes have been delivered fast. My seafood basket was very good and filling. My partner absolutely loved her salad.

Went here a few nights ago with some friends to have dinner and some beers. I ordered one of their specialities: slow cooked beef cheeks. The meat was cooked perfect it was so soft as and tender that it was falling apart when I touched it with the fork. Also the sweet potato mash was a perfect addition to this... More

We went to the his place tonight to have dinner. I have not read the reviews on TripAdvisor before - if yes I wouldn't been here. Lucky I didn't - it was a good fun atmosphere. The service was great. Food portions are huge. Beer selection is outstanding.

The meal was overpriced and was not what I ordered. I asked for chips with my snitzel and got pasta. The waitress bought out a bowl of chips, no new plate for my meal. Not good service, and not a restaurant I would recommend.

Bavarian beer house is a great spot located on the esplanade in cairns. I had a fantastic cooked pork knuckle ( schwinehachseb) here. Beers are traditionally served in handle glasses (steins). Service was great and the girls look good in the German dress.

We are Cairns locals and like to support Cairns businesses. I had the pork knuckle and my wife a schnitzel. The tap beer was cold and tasted nice and bitety as it "travelled" down my dry throat. My pork knuckle was a large serve. The crispy skin was really crunchy! We were there at 5:30pm. There was only one person... More
