Should have read the reviews first. We were seated quickly than the server went off shift. Very busy place. Had a great table overlooking the harbor until the Birthday party was seated in front of us. Food was just ok & drinks including beer were very expensive. I had to find someone to pay. There are better places.

Is just a pub with pub food. Good schnitzel, big beers. Service is ordinary, like most pubs. Can't beat the location and view and it's one of the best places in Manly for a Sunday session. Did New Year's here twice. Not bad if you have kids. You can see the fireworks, feed them and have a great night. (Must... More

Good food, good beer, good service ... Yes it was noisy on a Friday night but it's the buzz you expect from a place that's going better than ok. Huge customer turnover means staff have to be effective and kitchen has to meet expectations. All went well for our family party including a youngster who loved the pork belly. Tasting... More

I've been here a number of times and it's always been really good. Beer wise there is a great selection of German beers, and I always struggle to choose one as they're all good. The food is very good; somewhere between really good pub grub and good restaurant. I wouldn't hesitate to eat and drink here again. (Actually probably won't... More

This place is right on the water and very popular. Nice place to watch the sunset. Good service and reasonably priced.

It is clear to see why BBC haven't previously had ribs on the menu. Horribly dry and overcooked. Below average service, from staff with seriously poor attitudes. Would not recommend.

We did not eat here we just happily drank lager and wine and watch the world go by. Staff were all friendly and it has a fun atmosphere.

We stopped at Bavarian Bier Cafe when we got off the ferry from Sydney. It's right there at the wharf where the ferry comes in. We wanted to grab some food and a beer or 2 before heading to the beach. I got the Bavarian platter- sausage, pork belly, schnitzel, sauerkraut, red cabbage, and mashed potatoes. It was good and...

Perfect spot to start or end your visit to Manly as it is right at the harbour with a stretch of beach in sight. Great beer selection, friendly staff and a pleasant atmosphere.
