Bavarian food might be a long way from home all the way here in buzzy Melbourne, but The Hof Downtown has made the place it's own with its distinct approach to communal gatherings, Bavarian food and beer, and traditional clothing!
That's right, The Hof Downtown's staff are happily donning the lederhosen and dirndl for a fully immersive experience that celebrates the soul of southern Germany. And you can see them whizzing around the place, laden with numerous beer steins and traditional food. This cuisine is designed to be enjoyed by those around you, which is why their indoor dining table has an army of long tables to fit you and your dearest Freunde. It's exactly where you want to be if you're feeling social.
The menu features all the specialties of the region, and there are many. Aside from the predictable sausages and bretzels, they're also serving up the German answer to a pizza: flammkuchen. Thin, tasty and incredibly moreish, these offerings are perfect with a beer and never leave you feeling too full.
They're also peeking their head into neighbouring Austria for crispy schnitzels with a generous portion of chips, as well as enormous sharing platters that feature all the sausages, cured meats, mustards and German breads your heart desires. And is it really a German meal without a few beers? With a fantastic range of German beers on tap, wash down a hearty supper with an ice-cold stein. Echt lecker!
