“Beerhouse goodness!”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

We love going there but I have to be honest and say since they moved location the service isn't great anymore. I went and had dinner with three girlfriends the other day and we even offered to leave our credit card behind so they know we don't just get up and run away. But the waitress said they can only do table service when it's quiet. You either do it or you don't! If you do it when it's quiet you have to do it when it's busy too. It's just annoying to have to get up to get a drink when your food just comes out. By the time you are back it's half cold because you've been waiting at the bar for 15min to get a drink.
Nevertheless we enjoy the food there. Unfortunately they don't give out the sauakraut and rothkraut etc with the mains anymore either but you can order them as a side if you want to.

“Delicious food, great staff, nice views, good for people watching.”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We had several meals here over our stay and thoroughly enjoyed them all. The food was delicious, the beer was great and it was such a lovely place to kick back, relax and watch the world go by, just what you want on a holiday in Cairns. We had lunch, dinner and a late night beer and pretzel, all were great. The waitress from Kiama (sorry, don't remember names well) was lovely and remembered us each time we came back.

“got expensive”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Very important !!!If you dont like it noisy sit outside!!!
We haven`t been there for a long time because of living Interstate and were a bit shocked about the price rise over the years.
We ordered the Bavarian Plate. It was for 2 people. ( $52) We were so disappointed.
The Kassler was very thinly cut, more like a slice which you put on your Sandwich. The red cabbage was bland, the Spaetzle didn't have any salt and a few other complains like a piece of Schnitzel with hardly any Meat, but batter.
I remember the times when everything was tasty and far under $20 now hardly anything is under $25.
I guess thats Cairns, everything gets more expensive.
They have a good selection of german Beer , Service was friendly, but it took a long time to get our Food.

“Don't waste your time!”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Waited 1.5 hours for food that wasn't that great and barely saw/heard from waitress during that wait. Clearly way understaffed on every level because even ordering a drink at the bar took too long. Restaurant wasn't full so no excuse for such poor service!

“Dinner”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

Had dinner here with 2 German friends after a scuba diving trip to the Great Barrier Reef. It was a mixed experience. The food took over an hour to arrive! And we ordered schnitzels. When we asked the manager (after 30 minutes) about our order, he said: "It will take 45 minutes tonight, you're fortunate. It usually takes an hour". When it eventually arrived the meal was average. Great location on the Esplanade, this is a lively restaurant with music and a happy atmosphere. Work needs to be done to improve the service delivery though.
