A piece of friendly advice: when you come to the Hofbräuhaus, come hungry.
As proud and true Bavarians, we serve hearty German food, including the best schnitzel in Melbourne and one of the oldest German restaurant outside Europe!
The Hofbräuhaus is known for its classic traditional pork, beef and poultry dishes, rich in flavour, created from old family recipes. Complemented by our wide range of traditional side dishes such as dumplings, spätzle and sauerkraut. Rich fare, generously served.
Now, if you’re a just little more ravenous than usual, you may wish to line up for the Hofbräuhaus
Schnitzel Challenge, (which must be booked in advance!) The Schnitzel Challenge is a truly Olympian triathlon:
you will be faced with a 1.5kg pork schnitzel, a large-ish bowl of chips and 1Lt of Bier from
the tap. If you manage to demolish all of it – by yourself, no sharing! – we give you the
schnitzel, the chips, the Bier and a wear-it-with-pride winner’s t-shirt for free.
So far, our story’s been very, very meaty – but, truly, many of our best friends are vegetarians.
Why should carnivores have all the fun? Along with our special super salad of the day, we can offer you our exquisite Käsespätzle – house-made egg noodles baked with herbs, spinach and Swiss cheese, served with a crisp side salad. Yum!
If it’s a satisfying weekday lunch you’re after but on a tight budget, take advantage of our lunch specials (starting from $13.50)! Upgrade your lunch with any lunch special + a 300ml Bavarian Bier for only $19. Full of our most popular dishes – it is excellent value! In a hurry? Ask about pre-ordering our German food.
