We’ve long been fans of a good beer and schnitty situation, particularly when they’re of the authentic variety and can be enjoyed in a high vibe space with fellow lovers of the tasty combination.
Excitingly, Robina has just this week become home to such a high vibe space and it’s one you no doubt already know and love.
That’s right Gold Coasters, The Bavarian (of The Oracle Broadbeach fame) has opened a new venue so you can enjoy even more German biers, schnitzels and giant pretzels than ever before.
The newbie can be found within the impressive dining precinct that is The Kitchens but it’s an indoor / outdoor situation complete with a leafy beer garden and of course, many a giant TV screen so you can combine the stein slash schnitty situation with a bit of sport watching.
As is custom with The Bavarians decorating scheme, the interior is made up primarily of dark wood and decorative kegs with leafy greenery splashed throughout. In the outdoor area there’s a ping-pong table and a spot for a game of Boules plus lots of pretty fairy lights to kick back underneath with a frothy or two. Good times all round.
German bier-wise, all of the usual suspects are on offer including Löwenbräu and Franziskaner and Aussie faves like Pirate Life and Goose Island.
In terms of eats, there are many delicious German things to fill your belly after sipping copious Steins.
Obviously you need to eat a giant pretzel with butter, pickled cucumber and sweet mustard. Also go for the Alphenhainer Camembert crumbed with Chia and panko and probably some Mac and Cheese balls for good measure.
There are tasting platters for one, two or four people including one specifically dedicated to sausage which we highly recommend.
The schnitzels come in several varieties including of course, parmigiana, plus the veal wiener schnitzel, The Mexican, The Hawaiian and The Texan to name a few.
If those delicious dishes aren’t your thing, you may also indulge in Buffalo Mozarella Ravioli, The Bavarian’s Famous Crispy Pork Knuckle and a very yummy Spice-rubbed Wagyu tri-tip steak.
There’s also a variety of German sausages including Cheese Kransky, Pepper and Garlic smoked pork Kielbasa and the good old-fashioned Frankfurter with smoked beef and pork, Swiss cheese and spicy paprika.
From Monday to Thursday there’s a $10 lunch special and every day from 4pm to 6pm it’s Royal Snack Hour so you get free premium snacks and discounted drinks.
What’s not to love?
Head into Robina to taste test all of the things for yourself.
