Unique Austrian, German and Bavarian inspired menu
Welcome to the 'haus', a place of warmth and welcome. The striking Bavarian exterior, colourful flowers and the beautiful laced ironwork gave Das Bierhaus a warm appeal inviting us inside to quaff some beer and experience the flavours of Austrian cuisine. This unique restaurant has all the adorable characteristics of an Austrian chalet, transplanted on Sydney's Northern Beaches.
As we stepped inside, Das Bierhaus opened out into spacious rooms with impressive deer horns on the walls, a large mounted scene of an idyllic Austrian landscape and decorative blue and white trimming.
Das Bierhaus has occupied the former site of Rock Lily, a well-known venue, for three years. A gift voucher from my brother prompted a visit and I was keen to try their German, Austrian and Bavarian-inspired menu.
We began the evening with beer, it is a bierhaus after all. A Bavarian beer, Paulaner, arrived along with the Mango Weisse, a beer and mango combination. The men nodded their satisfaction.
No authentic Austrian restaurant would bypass schnitzels and nor did we. The Gypsy Schnitzel arrived, a large piece of crumbed chicken served with potato salad, topped with a delicately spiced tomato sauce which was mouth-watering.
We devoured so much deliciousness, we were unsure if there was room for dessert. But, hey, there's always space for appealing sweets so we ordered two desserts to share. The Chocolate Hazelnut Lava Cake oozed a delightful choc molten reward.
Das Bierhaus hosts a number of events during the week. On "Mussel Mondays", a bowl of mussels with a glass of wine or beer is served for $25. Tuesdays is Schnitzel Night, all you can eat Schnitzel for $25. Ribs Nights on Wednesdays for $35. Fridays is Schnappy Hour 5.00pm - 7.00pm, $5 biers, schnapps and wines, $10 for cocktails. For families, Thursdays and Sundays is a treat - kids eat free with every main meal purchased for dinner only.
Das Bierhaus is a unique restaurant in Sydney with the staff exhibiting a love for Austrian culture with exceptional service.
