Was a bit disappointed

I had been wanting to go here for some time and of course it wasn't what I was expecting. We were seated quickly but when I asked for some water, the waitress told me I had to get it myself at the bar (it wasn't like she was busy). The majority of the night she just walked around and in... read more

German kitchen is one of my favorites in the world. as my next trip to Germany is in more than 6 months, I wanted to give Bavarian beerhouse a try. the waitress was really nice but the prices for no tableservice, what is really unusual for German restaurants, was too high. I ordered Vienna style schnitzel with German noodles. it... More

We went here for lunch and had a great experience. We got a salad, which was very fresh and delicious. We also got the soft pretzel appetizer, which was wonderful as well. You order at the bar but the service was very friendly and attentive. we were brought a new pitcher of water before ours was even empty. We had... More

Walked up to bar, no other customers were there, the waitress on her mobile phone completely ignored me and carried on her conversation about her previous night out, after a few minutes she acknowledged me and i ordered a beer and a roast pork lunch. The food came out quick, but it was pretty bland, the pork had no crackling,... More

Had a Friday evening drink here - as expected the beer selection was great and service was also excellent. They have an organic and gluten free beer option which is novel for those with allergies. We enjoyed the beers so decided to stay for dinner and that was a mistake. To be fair the pork knuckles looked fabulous and we... More

We had a good dinner here. Don't have table service so you order at the bar which would be good if it was posted somewhere out front so we didn't stand around looking like idiots for a few minutes. But we sat outside and the food came out relatively quickly and the portions were huge, of course! The food was... More

Open for lunch and dinner (not all restaurants on the Esplanade are), indoor and outdoor space, large tables for groups of friends or colleagues, decent food and the prices are reasonable.

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.
