Lach lustre beer

Dropped in here after an evening walk and really fancied a wheat beer. The beer was watery tasting and the bar person was pushy and rude. Would not go back.

The Bavarian Bier Café at Manly wharf is good honest food at a reasonable price with a selection of beers. Nice location and good service. Well worth a meal if you want a good filling tasty meal.

Been here a number of times and it's good. The wait staff, girls, do their best to keep you in the joint; and you can't knock them for that. IMO the food is good, but the beer is better. I'll go again.

1. We arrived for our reservation and no one was at the front of restaurant, we waited there for over five minutes and finally wondered if anyone was even stationed there or realized we were there, so we walked to the bar only 10 feet away and the lady there was flat out rude, telling us to immediately return and...

The food here was creative for what it was. I had the pork roll and was pleasantly surprised by the crunchy crackling that came with the pork in the roll. The view was fantastic overlooking the water and the staff accommodated the kids in our group with colouring pencils and never got annoyed when the kids tried to talk with... More

The Lowenbrau beer was excellent having 2 half liters and three of the 4 had the Bavarian Smoked ribs and the fourth Fish and Chips. Whilst we all very much enjoyed the experience location service and food I have to say the... More

I usually frequent the Lowenbrau Keller in the rocks however I decided to try here as I live in Manly. Having grown up in Germany I did have quite high expectations. The beer was great however the food was nothing to write home about. It did not taste as authentic as other German restaurants that I have eaten in. The... More

our waiter Saxon was excellent very attentive. We were apprehensive about sitting up at the high tables but it was ok we had a good view and we could watch the world go by. The pork belly was excellent as usual, very tender. I wasn't sure what the apple cider would taste like and Saxon brought me a sample to... More

Sister restaurant to the one in Circular Quay-we were pleased this opened a few years ago. Great place to spend with a large wheat beer or lager watching the world go by. Food is hearty in a roast, schnitzel, sausages kind of way. Colouring in pages for children. Have started using Clipit for bar tabs but was a bit temperamental... More
