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.

Sitting upright appealing for the diner's attention were charming Tyrolean hats waiting expectantly for their owners.

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.

The Bierhaus Tasting Sled was a knockout with roast pork, smoked pork kassler, bratwurst, sauerkraut and bread dumpling served on a wooden curled sled. This meal was the highlight of our dinner.

The Beef Gulasch with spatzle had a sensational taste, very warming and delicious.

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.

The Apple Strudel was superb. Tasty chunks of apple in a delicious pastry was a satisfying completion to a wonderful evening.
