I loved coming here, and it's definitely my pick of all the Bavarian Bier Cafes I've been to. It offers the same lovely food and good beer as the rest, but with exceptional views by the waterfront. The down side as with all Bavarian Bier Cafes is that it's far from cheap, but as a venue that you can visit... More

We dined at this bar/restaurant twice, and was satisfied with the quality of the meal and the service. The problem naturally in Australia is the real cost. I ordered a beer from their "Oktoberfest" beer list, about 330 ml in volume. To my surprise the cost for that beer was A$14.00. Should you dine here, make sure the prices are... More

Really enjoyed my little coffee break here. There are plenty of tables outside, overlooking the water or just watching people as you sip your delicious coffee. I had granola and yogurt as well....what is the deal with the delicious granola in Australia??? Service was very good. The location is also good, directly on your left as you exit the ferry... More

We were seated promptly. The staff were very friendly. Food was good as always. Not a cheap night out but overall we enjoyed the food. Too full to fit desert in.

Oktoberfest was in full swing and I had one of the 'specials' that were on tap. Great tasting pint - but $14 was ridiculous. Ordered the Wiener Schnitzel (and a second, cheaper - 'only' $11 this time - pint) and can't complain about the quality or quantity of the food. The service was good, the beer excellent, the view over... More

Loved the beer tasting platters. Oysters were exquisite . Wish they were cheaper so I could have eaten a boat full . Mixed crowd with a fun and vibey atmosphere. Great for people watching.

We was recommended by a local to visit manly whilst we was in Sydney for a few days, and was surprised to find this gem! The selection of beers was great, and the food was really good too! Would definitely return again!

I reviewed here when we visited in 2012 and by chance we found ourselves here gain. The place was as we remembered it from previous. The service good and large portions of tasty food. We visited during the day, about 2pm. We look forward to our next visit in 2016. Is it always so windy outside???

Great location for people watching by the pier, beer is plentiful and nice to get one in a proper glass (as oppose to the usual Aussy schooner) Food is average at best, but it is a beer house so it's relative.
