    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.

    The Hof is a good place to dine. The atmosphere and deco is very German brewery like. German umpapa music would give it more authenticity. The food is not amazing, but pretty good. The portions are "big", so if you're hungry you won't be disappointed. Staff need a little fine tuning, but overall are very friendly and polite. I would visit again next time I'm in Melbourne. ????

    We went here before U2 so the restaurant was packed but our drinks and food came out swiftly. Great service, awesome food & delish beer. Love the 1 litre Steins :)

    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.

    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.
