I'm an Australian, living in Hannover, and have eaten at Outbax Spirit twice. The restaurant has a wonderful ambiance and is themed with original Australian decorations giving a kind of outback pub type of feel. There's plenty of interesting things to see on the walls and a great laid back atmosphere. Prices are reasonable, actually, cheap compared to food prices back home in Australia.
Unfortunately, the food doesn't really represent Australian food. There seems to be some myth with Germans, that Australian's live on a diet of kangaroo, crocodile and emu meat, which is absurd. On one visit I had meat pie, which is an institution in Australia. THe pastry on the pie was really good (as you would expect from Germans), but the contents were very disappointing: basically sloppy gravy. They also had an onion pie. Now, I've never come across an onion pie in Australia. A meat pie with onion, yes, but an onion pie.
So, what was missing from the menu. How about Australian institutions like: Roast Lamb, Flake, Pumpkin Scones, Pavlova, Chocolate ripple cake, damper. I'd love to see a big BBQ in the place where patrons can cook their own (or have someone else cook) a great selection of Aussie BBQ goodies: steak, Australian sausages and wonderful seafood. How about Vegemite samplers to see how brave the German palettes are to an Australian icon: Vegemite on toast. Other famous foods like Lamingtons, charcoal chicken. They can't make an Australian hamburger. A home made Australian "hamburger with the lot" should have beetroot, pineapple, egg, cheese, bacon, onion, tomato, lettuce and beef. Outbax burgers (which I have also eaten) are a little bland, and the premium burger is missing many of the ingredients I just mentioned.
I give Outbax a 5 for atmosphere and 3 for food. It's great for a family night out. Just don't expect food that is particularly "Australian" (despite Kangaroo and other game being on the menu).
