    Great place for a night out we had a dinner and drinks great fast service on a really busy night. Booking a table ensured we had table service the whole night!

    Sausages are always good! Snitzel too. Can’t go wrong with that.

    Not only was the food amazing and great value (we had The Platter between 2 of us which could have easily fed 3) the service was wonderful! They went out of their way to make sure we were happy with our table and even gave us complimentary drinks for our anniversary which was a pleasant surprise. All the staff were really friendly and we enjoyed chatting footy with Josh. It really makes for a great dining experience, will definitely recommend to friends and will be back again :)

    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.

    Kids meals, schnitzels, service all great. IThe pork belly dish was small and very little meat, a lot of fat. Saying that it did taste good.

    Food was great and given it was a Bavarian restaurant which is more known for meat dishes it catered well for vegetarians. We were well looked after and the manager came and had a general chat while I was waiting for my friend to arrive and told me a bit about the restaurant and the menu.

    Good venue and food. Was asked 5 times within 5 minutes of sitting down if we were ready to order. That was unnecessary.

    Very quick for the food to come out for a large group, and at the same time.

    The food was delicious! Friday crowd, hence not much service as there were quite a lot of people. I like that there is a lunch menu. Not too big portions.

    Came for lunch and the service was prompt, food was good and the service was pleasant. The portions were generous and the price was decent as well. Overall, a nice place to come for lunch.

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
