Our family had dinner here recently. The view is amazing and the decor/ambience is very pleasant. Service was good with plenty of regular timely attention. A great range of beers at raisin able prices. However, choose your dishes carefully. Starters are small for cost and nothing too exciting. $30+ for some particularly salty sauerkraut, a salty medallion of pork, a... More

From the moment you walk in the door Barbara makes you feel you are visiting her home. I am not an expert in German Cuisine but the food and nothing short of sensational. The pretzels are amazing and the mains and deserts are nothing short of sensational. The restaurant itself is well presented and is an experience in itself to... More

We were greeted with flustered hostility, reprimanded for not making a booking and then treated like the collective personification of inconvenience. After a few more passive aggressive un-pleasantries she herded us into the restaurant like cattle. The female co-owner then proceeded to set the table while telling me what an awful festive season it had been for her, with far... More

Twice my partner and I have been to this establishment within the month. The first for a meal with friends and had a pleasant evening, although the co-owner was rather abrupt in her attitude and my meal was mediocre at best for the price. I had thought her attitude was down to a rowdy group that was quite drunk and... More

I strong recommend this restaurant. One of the best I came in Australia. Pretzel was better then in Berlin, steak was yummy and the Apfel Strudel was the best. Staff very friendly... Wir kehren zurück.

Called in for afternoon tea on passing by pure chance out on an afternoon drive in the hills. The place was empty but the welcome was warm, yes, some would say a little over the top but it appeared genuine. Have travelled in Germany extensively but never visited the German alpine region so the building looked authentic as did the... More

Had a lamb and vegetable goulash pie with salad and rye bread and cheese. Lovely service and prompt after ordering. Also had fantastic views. Lemon Lime Bitters served in a "boot" was awesome and a nice German touch to the cosine.

Was here 3 yrs ago, and could not fault it at all. This has to be one of the best restaurants in Qld. Views, owner, staff, menu, food, wine/beer selection. Yes, all perfect in our opinion. The owner, knowing that we love German Shepherds, left the restaurant to take us to her beloved two dogs, and opened up the gate... More
