The service as well as the selection of beers is good and offers Germans a little home away from home. Traditional Bavarian food is well prepared, just serving what you expect from a real Bavarian Beerhouse.

We had the share plate for 2 plus bratwurst and that easily fed two adults and three kids. Chips, roast pork and pork belly were awesome as were bratwursts. Hubby and I loved the apple cabbage too. None of us liked the German meatloaf but that's personal taste. Great beers too! Go before 7 for happy hour.

Cairns was really buzzing this evening. We had difficulty getting in to restaurants without a booking, so admittedly the Bavarian Beerhouse was not our first choice for a steak on the Esplanade. We both ordered an Angus steak for $28 and a 0.5l of German each. Add on the 15% public holiday surcharge and total bill, was over $90. We... More

Litre tankards of beer for only $18. Very tasty. The waitresses were lovely and very attentive. Will be back!

As we love beer, thought we would give this place a go. It was the worst meal I have ever had anywhere, the crumbs on the outside of the pork schnitzel my husband had was thicker than the meat. It was so thin could hardly recognise it was pork, chuck in a few chips and a bit of salad slapped... More

Nice to have a cold stein of beer and authentic German food on the esplanade. The one disappointing thing is that after great beer and a nice meal I ordered authentic strudel. I can honestly say, paying $12 plus 10% tax it was very disappointing to get this served microwaved. I thought the Beerhouse would have more integrity rather than... More

Enjoyed a business lunch here with colleagues. None of us had been here before but the lunch specials were well liked by all. These included good portions of well prepared food. Thank you Lisa our host who was helpful and cheerful. We'll be back!

Friendly staff, quick service and a wide menu from quick bites to a vast meal. This location has a charming outdoor patio where patrons can overlook the goings on at the Esplanade while enjoing the German fare. Large steins are available for $12 to satisfy most beer drinkers, and a decent selection of spirits or local wine can be had... More

Cairns 很多餐廳也頗貴,這間價錢中等,食物不錯,餐廳也有格調 Happy Hours 啤酒只要AUD10 1L. 真的平得過份,推介Munich Gold. 漢堡有Queenslander 超好吃 反正來Carins 就試吧 不會失望
