    After such a long lockdown it was fantastic to be out and about again. We had a great night at The Hof. The food was excellent and the service outstanding.

    The staffs were welcoming and food was great as always. But we have been asked to sit outdoor without even one heater for our table. Cold and Windy.... not a great spot for beers. I realise the weather is out of their control, but customers need to be comfortable ????

    The Hof is always a great place to grab a nice lunch and a drink. Great atmosphere and service. Have been going here for a while and each time it hits the mark.

    We all enjoyed a delicious but smaller portion sized meal than we expected. We thought that it may have been due to 3 of us ordering a lunch special but the 4th person ordered from the regular menu and the meal was the same size. Our waitress was either new or not as attentive as she should have been. We weren’t asked which of the sides we would like with our meal and could not seem to get her attention after many attempts so resorted to walking over to her at the counter. Thankfully the meals we received were correct & very good. We also weren’t asked if we wanted anymore than the original drink we ordered nor were we asked if we wanted any desserts or coffees. Disappointing service, delicious meals and good lunch special deals.

    The front of house staff were very good but food overall was disappointing. The Bretzel schnitzel appeared to be deep fried and the coating just fell off the chicken. Mash potato dry and the so called Bavarian Cheesecake was a lump of lemony cream cheese on a plate with the tiniest sprinkle on top that had hard bits in it. This was clearly a “Deconstructed Cheesecake” with most of the deconstruction missing!!! No this is not ‘your version of a Bavarian Cheesecake,’ it was a sub par offering that shouldn’t be on the menu. So put on a proper baked cheesecake done well.

    Great food! Friendly and welcoming staff and good atmosphere. Only downfall was that the staff no longer wear the Lederhosen clothing attire anymore and there was no German music playing like the other German restaurants do, to make it more German atmospheric.

    We only spent less than $30pp because we had thr entertainment book vouchers. Without those it would've been approx $35pp- which isn't too bad considering the food is nice and hearty. Very German. Very loud- so definitely good for a bigger group of friends.

    We had the Bavarian sausages which were great value for money. The sausages were very tasty, along with the mashed potato, sauerkraut and salad. We topped it off with a big glass of cider. We’ll be back!

About the restaurant

Bavarian food hall

For Bavarian food, Bier, fun and fröhlich, you simply can't go past the Hof Downtown. Here you will be transported to a Bavarian wonderland where bier flows freely and waiters serve traditional grub, in large portions. Tables are often loaded with red cabbage, sauerkraut, crispy pork belly, bratwurst sausages, potato dumplings, pickles, mash potato, chicken schnitzel and large crispy pork knuckle...and a bier of course. With such an extensive beer list, it's highly recommended you gulp down a stein with your meal. For those who simply can't handle oodles of food, there is a Kleine bite menu to suit. So whether you want to gorge or graze, the Hof Downtown is perfect for both.

Best dish: bratwurst sausage - German pork sausage with potato mash, sauerkraut and German mustard
