    Thé steak 🥩 was reasonable. It said on the menu it came with a baked potato and vegetables. I received half a baked potato . For $38 that is a bit ordinary . Staff were a bit slow to serve too .

    Quick service. Unfortunately the Meals came out before pre dinner cocktails. Song selection was interesting to say the least. Food was really good but had to ask for mustards to go with wursts. Usually make an evening of dining out however we were in and out in 90 minutes

    -Sat under a leaky air conditioner. -Waited 20 mins for menus. -I was told that they couldn’t guarantee desert for my daughters birthday due to 2 chefs resigning. -We ended up leaving. -Disappointed.

    Food and service was good, in particular your pork knuckle with crackling was a standout for us. Would have liked a little more sauce in the gravey boats for the schnitzels however they delicious.

    We were the only table with a booking and we were given the absolutely worst table - beside the toilets and the kitchen. The restaurant wasn’t busy so I’m not sure why they seated us there. I did make my complaint known to the server and asked him to skate to the manager but the manager wasn’t there

    We were sitting at a corner table and was very quiet. We felt very comfortable and safe as no one was next to us. The staff was very friendly and provided the best customer service. She offered kids some activities and kids also ate for free. The food was really nice, especially the pork knuckles. We enjoyed it and would come back again.

    Whenever we holiday on the Gold Coast we have a meal at Bavaria Haus. The staff are lovely and the food is fantastic. Pork knuckle and a litre stein of whatever takes your fancy is a definite treat. Would definitely recommend.
