“Nice idea, authentic food and drink, lacking Bavarian-ism atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

The authentic German waitresses in traditional Duirndal's is a nice touch. Needs some Bavarian music to back it up. Feels like a food court. Food is plentiful, good quality and was served quick. Did have to ask for a menu which is never a great start. Young, friendly but inexperienced staff. Needs a "personality" working the floor. Could learn a lot from Nicks in Yungaburra where the atmosphere is other-worldly. Id come back but needs to be more of a cultural experience to become an icon.

“Great food, great beer, hübsches Mädchen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

Relaxed atmosphere in which to enjoy a different beer than the usual options in Cairns. The food is the perfect accompaniment to the beer and the portions are very generous. Chef and staff are very friendly. Be careful of the 'Stroh' rum!!

“Friendly service, amazing beers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

Dined here tonight with several friends.

The beer list is impressive. Served either half a litre or a full litre. Reasonably priced for the quality.

The mash served with a lot of the meals was delicious too.

The waitresses were very friendly.

Will definitely return!

“Bavarian Adventure”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

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.
