    Always a pleasant venue to catch up with friends for lunch and drinks. Great range of German and craft beers plus good food. The staff always make us feel welcome.

    This place is so amazing! Really great vibes and delicious food! I had the new Mega Loaded Dog and boy howdy! It’s so big, well worth the $24. Will definitely be back.

    Our booking could not be found, then they tired to give us any front table near the open door in a 43 degree day. I asked for a different table. We’re offered water and kids menu they never came we asked 3times. I waved down someone and ordered an expresso martini was told no the coffee machine ooo. I asked him to check the bar - yes they can make one ???? WAter never came we got our own. We flagged waiter to order food. Good came fast. Chick Parma and kids hot dog good. Adults had pork belly and pork knuckle. Both so over cooked n dried out not edible soooo disappointing- the donut desserts yum.

    There was no welcome when we arrived. After being ignored for a bit I had to approach a group of 3 staff and interrupt them in order to be seated. I asked a question about seating and received a snide, patronising snigger and a loud, single syllable, negative response from the bloke behind the bar. I was honestly taken aback by how rude he was. If it wasn't NYE we would have left on the spot. The food was pretty good but no-one has been that rude to me in years.

    I would describe our experience as sloppy. Drinks were spilled onto the table and one of the dinner party and there was no apology or offer to wipe up the mess. The cutlery was dirty, there were no napkins, the wait staff didn't take down our order correctly and had to return to the table several times to clarify, the salt and pepper grinders were empty, a mocktail was ordered from their drinks menu and the waiter had no idea what was on the menu and when we got up to leave and pay, we went to the incorrect counter and we were beckoned from across the room to go to the bar. I ordered the pork belly and the presentation was unappealing. It was pork belly (cooked well, the only enjoyable part of the meal), sitting on top of a mound of potato mash which was then swimming in a mix of emulsified gravy (they tried to call it a jus) and very unpleasant red cabbage. I concede that it was Christmas Eve and it might have been difficult to find staff for the evening and they may not be experienced, however, I would assume as a matter of basic hospitality training, that management would have run through the menu with them prior to commencing their shift. While the Bavarian chain is a very butchered version of a true German restaurant experience, it was odd to have a wait staff saying Bonjour after taking our order!

    The staff were super friendly and helpful but for a place that specialises in schnitzel I had higher expectations for the food. Also it’s really noisy. Wouldn’t go back as there are plenty of clubs that do better schnittys.

    Service took awhile and the food seemed like it had been reheated. Have been a few times and this was by far substandard food compared to previous visits.

    The food was very, very good. The staff were friendly and helpful, and responded to all our requests quickly and with a smile. The restaurant itself had a lovely vibe. Will be eating there again and again.

    Staff were very friendly but it took 30 minutes for them to take our order, then they mixed it up. Food was warm. When we asked for coffee they talked us out of it saying "it wasn't nice and they couldn't make one half strength".

    Whilst the food was tasty and delivered in a short period of time, we ended up ordering our drinks at the bar even thought there was table service. We never received an entree we ordered and one of our meals was forgotten. The service was negligible and the place was over crowded. After our first greeting, which was very early in the evening the service became infrequent and within half an hour we were completely forgotten. I would not be interested in returning and nor would the other seven people I was with. A very disappointing first experience at The Bavarian.

    The new summer menu was amazing! The platter for two was a delicious feast which was unable to be finished, despite our best efforts. The initial service was fast and polite, however, we were then left alone with a lack of service. The meals are greasy and should be coupled with numerous beers, yet the servers did not come and check on us and offer more drinks (an easy way to make money). When I finally stood and approached the bar, two staff continued to have a social conversation for approximately 50 seconds across the bar and then served me in a non-enthusiastic manner. I would highly recommend the mango juice and beer mix, too easy drinkable on a summer evening!

    Amazing schnitzels and the cabbage coleslaw was delicious, even my partner who normally swears he doesn’t like cabbage loved it. The staff are bubbly and attentive, One of the best experiences dining out that I’ve had.

    Food is good but service is very slow. The three staff members we were able to get the attention of were lovely and helpful but a number of staff seem to actively avoid being engaged by the customers.

    Staff were pleasant and welcoming once you got their attention. At one time I had to frantically wave both my arms above my head to get their attention. A smile and small wave were ignored. Food and drink was good, and potions large. I will visit again, hopefully it will be easier to get staff attention.

    Food was amazing! Highly recommend the pork platter, some much food we had to take some home! However for table service it took a while for US to get anyone’s attention and then have them seat us and take orders, disappointing for a quiet night.
