A sausage is a sausage irrespective of its origins. Basically a sausage and chips/mash ans then call it German and double the price. Not worth the money or the effort.

Dinner and drinks on the cairns esplanade. Great location and while it was pretty busy, was still easy to get a table. Great menu, highly recommend getting the pork knuckle (despite it being a bit pricey!). Wash it down with some of the great German...beers on tap.More

Hubby couldn't resit the pork knuckle, fair to say he was very happy with his choice. Not cheap but it is huge and could easily be shared. The crackle was great and the meet still moist and rich. He couldn't finish the mash and kraut...so I would definately fill up on the delicious meat first!. I had a calamari special which was really nice but probably a bit of a cop out at a Bavarian restaurant. Service was fast and friendly. Would recommend if your craving some comfort food.More

What more could you want. A gigantic pork knuckle with superb crackling and a pint of German beer. Service was friendly in a great spot. Definitely will visit next time I'm in town.

They should lookup the meaning of the word potato, because what they serve is not potato. Meal was not good value.

Well worth a visit as they have good solid german style food and lots of choices in cold beers. Service was good and helpful in suggestions for both food and drinks.

All food we ordered was overcooked, burnt or dry. Only 1 cook in the kitchen. The whole place needs a good clean as well. There are far better places to eat close by, avoid this one.

Nothing better than a large beer and currywurst to end a day on the reef. The currywurst was excellent not too far off what we had in Hanover. The local cairns brewed beer coral Sea was excellent and staff were great
