King Ludwig has offers great customer service. I can see they hiring people who love to serve. Well done! Being prompt doesn't mean rushing or hovering, but it does mean taking care of my needs in an appropiate time frame. Having to wait 10 to even five minutes for drink refills or the check can quickly make a good dining... More

King Ludwigs is one of our favourite restaurants! We got married here and come back regularly to celebrate birthdays and special occasion. The food has always been faultless and the service is fantastic. Barbara and Klaus go out of their way to make their guests feel welcome. My husband enjoys the extensive beer selection and the views are unbeatable.

After reading previous reviews I feel the need to write about my experience at this restaurant. this was the nineth time at King Ludwigs and each time has been a wonderful experience with absolutely great vibes, the best food ever. The food was always on good high standard and will definitely go back there next time I am in Maleny.

We took your booking at 10am on the day and managed to get you and your partner a seat outside on the verandah with 180 degree views over Moreton Bay and the... More

We discovered this wonderful restaurant by accident and had a delicious lunch, taking the owner's recommendation about what and how much to order, and were extremely happy with the result. The meat was delicious and the vegetables a very pleasant surprise - a variety of vegetables all absolutely perfectly cooked, which is by no means as common an experience when... More

Look this place has great hearty food, traditional decor and friendly German service. Also a great selection of German beers and if you ask nicely they may even show you the beers that aren't on the menu. Secret beers! Painful if you don't have a designated driver.
