As always, the Hof is a great choice when we are looking to have a meal. The athmosphere was great and the service, as always, perfect. We are looking forward, to the end of the lockdown, to have a great meal there again.

Highly recommended!

The Hof is a great place to hang out after work with friends. However, the noise levels is so high. You've to literally yell to be able to communicate effectively.

We are guests at the Hof on a regular base and we love it, the athmosphere, the love to detail, the service, the food and sometimes the special service.

Highly recommended for good food and drinks.

Went before the footy and it was great. Good selection of beers and a diverse-ish menu given it's a German resto.

The booking into The Hof Downtown was last minute as my fellow diners and I generally book into one of the other nearby establishments.
We were more than pleasantly surprised by the service the moment we walked in the door. The waiting service by Maria included recommending the vegetarian gnocchi which the other diner thoroughly enjoyed and had the trout with mushrooms.
It was sensational.
And the evening with complete with a shot of schnapps.
So I recommend The Hof Downtown.

We were thoroughly impressed with everything at The Hof. Loved the food, taste, portion size and food choices. We have multiple allergies and the menu catered to that without even trying which was a nice change.

All servers were nice and made sure we were looked after.

Booking system was easy. Highly recommend checking this place out. German cuisine with a twist. We loved it.

we had a late dinner at the Hof Downtown. The service was very good. They had a clean table ready for us. Water was brought to our table straight away which we were appreciative as we had driven three hours from country victoria after Saturday football. the waitress brought out menus and took our drink order and then came back to take our food order. We did not wait very long at all for our meals which was great given that our booking was quite late. Our meals were very tasty. I would definitely go back again. The staff are very friendly and courteous.

We loved everything about this place. The service was friendly and attentive, the drinks reasonably priced and went down a treat and the food was amazing! The curry wurst took me back to Berlin, the pork belly my husband ate was beautifully cooked and the crackling nice and crunchy. We will definitely be back, to try something different, but it’s going to be hard to resist the curry wurst. All in all a great lunch was had.

From entering The Hof Downtown we were greeted with smiles and friendship. The upstairs was fantastic with excellent service and the food was delicious. I have to say that I never leave food on my plate, however the meal was to much for me to finish. Our party had a great time and would certainly recommend to all.
