    Great food, service and atmosphere. A really good vibe in the place. Food is not fussy but out of this world. All helped by really friendly and helpful service. I love this place

    Due to waiting for a covid test result, we were unable to attend on Christmas Day. However the restyled allowed me to get a takeaway meal for us to have. The staff were exceptional, understanding and so helpful. Got the meal and dropped off to my son. Food was delicious and would’ve been so much better had we been able to eat in the restaurant. Huge servings which gave us both leftovers as well. Will definitely return and eat in and very much looking forward to it. Thanks for saving Christmas Day for us.

    The beef cheeks were extremely bad, I don't know what happened to your chef. The spaetzles were too salty as well, I was disappointed because my wife got a stomach ache after having dinner at this restaurant. I used to love eating at this restaurant tho. I am hoping you will improve the sanitary quality of your food. Bcoz I would like come back in the next 3 months. I am looking forward to that. Danke schön!

    The Hofbrauhaus is a lovely friendly restaurant with enough German touches to please Aussie Germans like our family group of 12 celebrating two 18th birthdays (the food was spot on) without being over the top. The service was exceptional - attentive, friendly and the band was fun. A great causal night out! And great value for money.

    Hofbrauhaus was one of our first choices to dine at after lockdown. We've been before and will be again. It was a great place for a large group, although noisy and busy at times. We were celebrating a special ocassion and uur group found it great value for money with a great atmosphere and friendly and helpful staff. A big thank you to the HauHofbrauhaus staff for an enjoyable meal and night out.

    Institution of Melbourne. Those interested in a traditional Bavarian feel for a night out..this is the place. Food is brilliant. Big servings so be prepared to eat. Of course it wouldn't be a German experience without a Stein and a Bretzel. There is also a band, yodelling and Bavarian dancers providing a great atmosphere. All team are dressed in traditional southern German outfits and are fantastic. Great venue for a birthday party or night out with mates. Would definitely recommend.
