“Great dining at Wolfgangs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

Dinner on a Saturday night. We got there early with family which wasn't a problem for the extremely friendly and helpful staff. The family had the Share Platter which did the two adults and young child. Great food. Would definitely come back. Note that the restaurant filled up and ended up turning people away so booking may be required, if possible.

“Das ist gut!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

My husband has a really love of german food so we decided on dinner at Wolfgang's after strolling past on the main street. it certainly doesn't look like much from the outside but the food was amazing!
We had the fried camembert for entree (shared) which was delicious but definitely not needed as we ordered the shared platter for main. It was a mountain of meat. The pork knuckle had the crispiest crackling and the juiciest inside. The sausages were bland alone but great with the mustard and horseradish they came with and the cutlet was also very nice. The mash was silky smooth and the kraut and cabbage helped to cut through the richness of the meat. There was a great selection of german beers on the menu. Not too pricey either considering the amount of food you got.

“Share Platter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

My wife and I shared a German tasting platter which I thought was delicious. I loved being able to sample a few different menu items: pork knuckle, 2 types of sausage, pork cutlet, mashed potato, red cabbage and sauerkraut. My only critique was that the presentation made it a little difficult to share.

I was also surprised to find my wife did not enjoy it at nearly as much as I did. She was overwhelmed by all the meat and the lack of any gravy or sauce. So even though I would happily eat the same meal again, it would not be to everyone's taste.

“German Dining”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

This is definitely traditional German food, while I am not a big fan, it was very hearty and the portions were quite large. Unfortunately they were having a problem with staff off sick so the poor waiter was run off his feet, therefore the service was very slow. We also found the restaurant so noisy we had to yell to be heard.

“Great atmosphere with authentic German cuisine.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

There's not a lot to say about Wolfgang's other than it's a small restaurant that works and works well. While the menu is limited what's on offer is excellent. Authentic German cooking that is just so flavoursome as well as being served in generous proportions. Perhaps a little hard to find at the end of a small arcade it is well worth the search. This is not the first time we've been to 'Wolfs' and it certainly won't be the last. The place is a little on the cramped side which means reservations are a must. I recommend the pork knuckle along with a tall glass of wheat beer. It is also BYO. The service is good, the staff friendly and Wolfgang does his best to have a little chat with each of his customers. The only thing you need to be aware of is while the meals are very filling they can be heavy but hey! this after all is the nature of German cooking.
