German Restaurant Melbourne – Bavarian style beer, food and schnapps!


Hofbrauhaus is the only German restaurant of its kind in the centre of Melbourne. Established in 1968 it has become a restaurant and function centre landmark in the city of Melbourne.

Come and join us for a fun night out with delicious German food, plentiful German beer, schnapps, dancing and live music in true Bavarian style. Both à la carte and set menu dining are available. We are open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week in our Alpine Bar and upstairs Dining Bier Hall, with our Resturant open Tuesday to Sunday for dinner. We offer two Dinner seatings Friday and Saturday (please note that it is the later seating that will include our Live Entertainment). 

The live entertainment from Tuesday to Sunday evenings creates a unique atmosphere for a fantastic night. Alternatively, live entertainment can be organised for larger groups during lunchtime such as corporate functions or parties.

Good Hearty German food, top entertainment and great Alpine atmosphere, not to mention plenty of beer and schnapps, makes Hofbrauhaus a great place for corporate functions, birthdays, hens nights, bucks’ nights or simply a great night out.

We can cater to your corporate function, hens night, bucks night, or family gathering with a set Dinner or Lunch menu. Bookings are essential to reserve your special day ahead of time.

We accept all major credit cards (except Diners) but unfortunately do no split bills.
