Not sure where to start with this place, received a friendly greeting from the waitress who then disappeared 45 mins later. Good selection on the menu with prices at the top end of town for casual dining however not over the top. Started with some drinks, ordered the beer special of the day & a .5 lt stein of wicked cider, then ordered a side of caeser salad which we thought would come with our main choices of the Gypsy Schnitzel & Hunter Schnitzel (no greens come with the meals), not the case. Salad came out first then approx 40 mins later the schnitzel's arrived, Gypsy had great flavour & was very moist with a nice accompanying sauce however far too many chips (ate less than a third) & the Hunter was also moist & tender but the wife couldnt get over a strange flavour from the egg noodle which by now the new waitress (on her own) couldn't explain & wasn't interested in asking the Chef. The overall portion were fantastic & glad we didnt order the large schnitzels, due to being so full we didnt bother looking at the desert menu.
Overall it was a not bad experience & maybe a rating of 3 is harsh however doesnt allow a rating of 3.5, there was little atmosphere the night we visited, meals were very slow coming out given at the time there was only 10 customers in the restaurant. Being locals we will try again at some stage & see if our next visit warrants a higher rating, would recommend to others if you want to experience something different.

I have been at the Bavarian a lot since it opened last year and it is great food, huge portions and still inexpensive even though prices have risen. The pork shnitzel is the best and just mouthswatering good. For dessert we shared the apple strudel and it was very very good. They have a great selection of beers and if you are a beer lover, you will love this place. Our waitress was very nice and attentive and looks gorgeous in the traditional German outfit. We will be back.

Having been a regular customer when this place first opened then being put off by poor food and lousy service we decided to give it another go unfortunately for us the place has sunk even lower there was no friendly atmosphere or sevice, the kitchen is open so you can see the chef leaning over his bench texting on a mobile while you are waiting for your meals I am amazed that he could find the time to cook our meals he was so busy on the phone anyway the food arrives chips heaps of chips under the main on top next to nothing else on the plate now thats ok for a $9.90 pub meal but at $24.90 for a schnitzel I was expecting a little more class on the plate a simple side order of mushroom sauce @$4.50 tasted disscusting ineatable to top it off when we went to pay the waitress told me the spirit I had requested to be served in a large glass was actually a double shot I tried to explain to her that I did not ask for a double shot which she agreed but insisted that it was a large glass and should therefore have a double shot of spirit RESPOSIBLE SERVICE OF ALCOHOL ye right promise not to return ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Went there on a realy busy night and they were short of waitresses but the young Lady that was there was absolutely fantastic. We got a bootle of wine which was realy well priced under $20 and good quality brand, we thought well this is going to be a bit of a wait full house and all.
The food came quick w had a plate with everything for 2 it could have fed 4 easy it was delicious and realy nice we loved it .
It was so good went back 3 days later and it was just as good and plenty of staff this time around .
This is a good place if you want good authentic German food and like big servings , it was $58 for 2 with a bootle of wine a bargain and I loved it 5 stars from me .

- good food
- excellent beer
- atmosphere is so so, it would have been great if they had a beer garden
- very cute waitresses in their Bavarian outfits ;)
not exactly what you may want to do when in tropical Cairns, but definitely good value
