    The new owners are keeping the original service and quality alive. Friendly greeting and continued attentive & friendly service throughout meal. Great food as always! So wonderful to see the menu has been maintained! The food and service are the crown jewels of what makes King Ludwigs, King Ludwigs...and as semi-frequent patrons, we are pleased that standard levels have been kept. Keep it up!!

    We were so impressed with our King Ludwigs experience and admired the way the staff looked after us, despite it being a day where they were facing weather challenges - they excelled as did the food and ambience, it is without doubt one of the best dining experiences we have ever had on the Sunshine Coast.

    We travelled two hours to eat here and we were not thrilled with the service, food, cost or virtually sitting so close to the table next to us on the verandah. It was a birthday celebration as I said on the reservation, yet nothing was mentioned. We are of German descent and was disappointed when I asked for schnitzel (because it was on the kids menu) and would pay extra for adult portion, and was told NO. On the plus side, the pretzels were great! Sorry to be so honest but that's the German way!

    The food was quite nice but unfortunately the poor communication, very inattentive service, long wait times and demeanour of most of the staff made this an average experience.

    King Ludwigs German Restaurant and Bavarian Beer BarResponded on 18 April 2022

    Sorry to hear this and it was a busy Easter service with one new staff member. It was however the first opportunity for us since Covid to operate again with 4 staff on the floor. We must have forgotten how do handle busy nights again (haha). We will learn again after so much time only being able to run with max 2 vaxxed staff on the floor and capping numbers because of this.

    The place was beautiful, scenic and relaxing. The service was excellent. However, food was disappointing with the entrée (the rosti was too salty and a bit burnt) and both mains (steak and pork) were salty. They are nice, but nothing to rave about with the price we paid. When we booked online, it wasn't stated that only set courses available. I heard a few tables telling the waitress why they won't any ala carte menu and why they had not being told. The apple strudel is ok, nothing to rave about. Pretzel was hot and yummy with butter.

    We came here for a birthday celebration. The birthday girl's name was written on two boards - one at the front door and one at our table (along with party favours). The service was impeccable and very attentive (and authentically German). The food - quality and presentation - exceeded our expectations. Ambience was very genuine - we could have easily been sitting in a restaurant in München! Only point that didn't get 5/5 was "value for money" - with some main courses being >$40 and desserts being >$15 - this restaurant falls into the "fine dining" instead of budget-friendly category.

    King Ludwigs German Restaurant and Bavarian Beer BarResponded on 18 April 2022

    Thanks Lynda, I would neither say we are budget friendly nor fine dining. What we do offer though is meals made to order from scratch and fresh as the orders come in and not food that is sitting in a bain marie. So for some of the meals with meat/fish cost increases thanks to covid some (not all) have recently gone over $40. The only dessert over $15 is the Black Forest Cake at $16 that is made fresh every morning and is possibly the only super authentic BFC you will get in South East Qld.

    Unfortunately there were no GF sauces available on the day for any of the dishes due to a delivery issue, a bit disappointed as the menu was advised on the website as GF. The food was nice but would have been nicer if the dish was complete.
