As Paulylah below mentions, the decor, ambiance and lighting is very ordinary BUT that is where the negatives stop. We had a large group arrive late (long drive) and they were very accommodating even though we were 45min late. It place is difficult to find as its tucked away down a lane way.

The food was very good and the beers were flowing fast. The waiter was excellent (must be paid by the amount of beverage sales LOL) and knowledgeable..

All meals were huge so dessert didn't come into the equation..

Its a great experience and well worth the visit...

This place is simply great. You can't say it's pretty, and you can't say that the hired help sport any formal training at all, but you get what you pay for and this place meets you half way. The service is second rate but endearing, the ambience is terrible but, again, endearing. I think the issue with ambience is mostly that the lighting is far to bright, to the point of pain. If not for the lighting the terrible decor and token German music accompanied with the traditional cuckoo clock would be suitable, but the lighting is garish and leads to the latter being unnapreciable. All that being said, this is hands down my favourite reasonably priced restaurant in the highlands. Other than the food being hearty, tasty, and well priced the owner himself is a solemn but genuinely lovely guy, and regarding the service you just need to be patient and remember its a country town. Fix the lighting Wolfgang and you'll see us even more regularly.

Personally I think it's probably (or maybe the only) the best German cuisine in the southern highlands, and the food was quite nice. The portions are very generous, very German and the opposite of stingy.
My only criticism is that the waitress could not answer my questions about the meals, and I think knowledge is a necessity in these (any!) types of cuisines. Other then that, fun with friends and family, big sizes and big beers.

There is a distinct lack of good restaurants in Bowral, so we were very happy to stumble on Wolfgang's!

First the menus, if you're not big eaters go straight to the mains, which are very traditional. We had a table of 6 and had a mixture of huge pork knuckles, both on the bone or without, Schnitzel, roast chicken and plenty of sour kraut and mash. We all loved every mouthful and couldn't fit any desert.
Also the drinks, a great selection of european beer at very reasonable prices and a great selection of wine by the glass and bottle.

The services was first class and the food came when we expected it and the bll was less than $200, which included quite a few beers and wines.

What more could you ask!!!!
