“Yummy German food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Went here for post city to surf recovery with a big bunch of friends. Big hearty schnitzels were just what we needed!! We devoured huge plates of schnitzels, pork knuckle, wine and beer. Delicious food, attentive staff and quick service. I thought it was a little pricey (almost $80 for a chicken schnitzel, pretzel and three glasses of wine), but otherwise no complaints.

“Super Special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

I ate here during a recent trip to Sydney while waiting for my departure time on the Sydney Harbour Bridge Walk. I had the daily special of Sauerbraten with a crisp lager and can tell you that the food was excellent and the lunch special moderately priced. If you are in or around the Rocks and looking for good food, stop in at Lowenbrau Keller!

“Love this Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

We love German food and this place does it very well ( not to mention the beer). The band and traditional Bavarian games that the band leads are always lots of fun. The Lowenbrau is in a great spot in The Rocks area to people watch. We will visit this restaurant every time we are in Sydney.

“A Bit of Bavaria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

When you order German food outside Germany, you expect something almost German but not as good...and definitely not better. I was there a year ago and still remember the Pork Belly, or Krustenbraten, as the Bavarians call it. Crispy, melt in your mouth. It was great.

I'm not a fan of Loewenbraeu beer, but the atmosphere was exceptional. This is a great place to hang out, drink and eat excellent Bavarian food on The Rocks in Sydney.

I'd definitely go back if it weren't 7 million miles away.

“Dining experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

What a great little piece of Germany we found in The Rocks, The service was friendly and prompt, topped with some great ales, awesomely prepared meals served outside in the quiet paved street and when we ventured inside a very rustic dining area and bar full of atmosphere. Definitely well worth the visit for a dining experience and some fun.
