“Slowest service I have ever experienced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Admittedly, it was good friday, but to wait an hour and half for a salad, and two burger (without being told it would be such a lengthy wait) is beyond ridiculous. We ended up getting a refund for our undelivered food, and even that seemed to be an ordeal.
Won't be back.

“Great selection of beer and an excellent Über Schnitzel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

I really like this place, I've eaten here a few times and my experience has been pretty good. Recently I had the Über Schnitzel which I really enjoyed, it was fresh and tasty prompting me to leave a review. My husband had a burger, he didn't have the same enthusiasm for his meal as I did but he did say it was quite good! Our friends all enjoyed their meals. The beer is great, try the Hefeweizen wheat beer it's on tap!
Service is good and efficent, quite German actually! :)
Be aware, it can get very busy if there is a show or a football/cricket game happening.

“Slow service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Lovely atmosphere, well designed setting all was let down by the poor service and doughy over cooked pork snitzel.

“Great German venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Excellent German menu, genuine German-style food and VG bier list. Service was fast and efficient and the decor'e pleasantly modern Deutsch rather than faux Bavarian. Prices are typically somewhat inflated for the Entertainment Centre location but otherwise worth a visit if you are in the area and like an authentic European style restaurant. Prost...

“Worst of the BBC restaurants”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Food is as good as it is at all the Bavarian Bier Cafe restaurants, however the service is horrendous!

We had a booking for 7pm, arrived at 6:55pm, the table wasn't ready, fair enough, we were early, 15 mins later, they still hadn't seated us. Then, at 7:15, after waiting 20 mins, we were seated, and promptly ignored for another 15. Our drinks/entree order wasn't even taken. After collaring a waiter, we placed our order, including mains because we'd waited that long that we had selected them already. The entrees came out quickly, but the drinks didn't, so we'd finished our entrees before the drinks had arrived.

It didn't get any better from there. We then waited another 30 mins for mains to come out, which we wouldn't have minded if the restaurant was busy, however it was nearly empty by the time our mains were being cooked, and we'd both ordered schnitzels, how long does it take to cook a schnitzel???

I had to collar the waiter again, and he was genuinely shocked that we hadn't got our mains yet (his exact words were "Oh, that's ridiculous, I'm so sorry!"), he went and spoke to the kitchen, and almost immediately it came out.

Even paying was terrible, we waited 10 mins after our plates were cleared, no one even asked if we wanted desert, we just sat there. In the end, we got up and walked to the counter, and pointed at our table and paid for our meal. We weren't even offered a discount for the terrible service!

Oh, and don't even ask about the atmosphere! It was like being in a crowed, echoey room, no ambiance to speak of, just noise!
