Snare a table on the outdoor deck and join the sun-loving throngs as they quaff pure Bavarian beer and chow down on traditional fodder at the Bavarian Bier Cafe in Manly. Jutting out from Manly Wharf, this lager lover’s paradise is not just for the drinkers – foodies and families will be equally satisfied. Overlooking the water at Manly Cove, Bavarian Bier Cafe Manly is one of five operating in Sydney, bringing the best of Bavaria to Aussie tastebuds. Borrowing bursts of flavours from neighbouring European nations, modern Bavarian fare ranges from the rich and hearty to lighter fodder and salads. Nab a spot in the sun on summer days or retire inside for winter at one of the wooden tables crowding the star of the show – the central bar and its glistening roof of beer jugs.
Peruse the lunch or dinner menu with the aid of a crisp Lowenbrau Original lager and a plate of chilli salted squid. For mains, fill the belly with tender strips of Zurich veal in a creamy sauce or fish swathed in a crispy Lowenbrau Bier batter. The Munich Brewers Platter is the ultimate way to sample the best bits of Bavaria; tuck into the overflowing plate of crackling roast pork belly, char-grilled kassler, chicken schnitzel and sausages, complemented by sauerkraut, red cabbage and sebago mash. Continue the swigging spree with a selection from the extensive beer list, or end on a sweet note with the Bavarian pretzel and butter pudding and revel in its belly-warming splendour.
Bavarians are renowned for their serious dedication to brewing the purest, most flavoursome beer in the world using only four ingredients in the brewing process (hops, malt, yeast and water).
The Bavarian Bier Cafe has an extensive selection of award-winning biers and wines, with well-educated staff that can take you on a tour through the tempting drinks menu.
Even more tempting is the hearty Bavarian fare on offer. Favourites such as fish and chips in crispy Lowenbrau Bier batter or chicken schnitzel with Swiss cheese and double smoked leg ham are the perfect complement to a tall Lowenbrau bier. There is also the option of a non-alcoholic Lowenbrau for the designated driver, as well as cocktails and schnapps for those who need a break from the bier.
The welcoming bar staff and rustic and cosy interior means the Bavarian Bier Cafe is a destination that demands several visits. The range of biers and wines, excellent food and good-value ‘Hoppy Hours’ every weeknight draw in the crowds, so get there early, grab a table and start your journey through the menu.What’s On
