Barbara the hostess with the unstoppable energy is superb and clearly enjoys her role of head everything in this well-established business. The food is excellent. If you want good German food, this is the place to go to, at least in Maleny. The views are fantastic, but only at lunchtime. In the evening the ambiance of the restaurant takes over... More

We visited there on Friday for luncheon menu. We had a potato soup, German sausages and pretzel. They were all so tasty. Highly recommended. We will definitely be back!

We arranged Christmas lunch with our 92 year old Grandma, and Barbara and staff could not have been more accomodating. We had reserved parking, a wonderful welcome experience, and a slightly modified meal for Grandma. King Ludwigs will be our first choice for family celebrations in Maleny.

Absolutely amazing from the moment you enter. The food is second to none and the drinks are incredible. We couldn't speak highly enough of the location and what Barbara and Klaus have created. The service is fantastic and won't disappoint.
