Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a great lunch! The inn offers a share platter that is sure to please. And the desserts where off chain. The staff are wonderful. The live music was a real treat and it was a great atmosphere Can't wait to go back

What a disappointment this place was. After going into the bar at 11.30 am while it was quiet. We booked a table for lunch, and we were allowed by the staff member to choose our preferred seat, as we had a dog with us and...needed to sit outside and we wanted the less busy beer garden area. This part went without an issue and the staff member was very helpful and pleasant. On arriving at our pre-booked time of 12.30 we find someone else sitting at our pre-booked table. I found the original staff member who booked our spot, and whilst she was apologetic and unsure why the table was swapped, we either took the table the Inn decided we should sit at, which was a dingy table right by the door from the bar into the beer garden, which our dog and we did not like, or find another table. The other tables all meant sitting out on the busy street, the few vacant tables there had used plates and beer glasses piled up waiting to be cleared. We felt we had little choice at this point of the day and we stayed at the table given. Then we ordered food and that just added to the poor performance of this Inn. I had a dry Chicken Schnitzel and some of the worst chips ever and my wife's meal was equally dry and bland. With drinks and two mains over $80 spent we didn't enjoy any of it. So, we firstly wasted our time going and booking a table, despite the staff member saying that we could choose a table we liked. Then having to pay a lot for such a bad meal. We won't come back to this place again. The Hahndorf Inn made us feel unwelcome and ripped off.More

Great food, great beer, great entertainment. The venue really immerses you in the German vibe. We were lucky enough to get an outdoor table on a sunny day. There was traditional German music, good range of food items to choose from and loads of beer...options served ice cold. The food is good. The beer is good. Good service, great ambiance, could not fault in any way.More

We returned to Hahndorf after two years and decided to again dine at the Hahndorf Inn since the food was so magnificent last time. Big Mistake! Prices have increased greatly and the food was absolutely atrocious. We ate the same meals as before, the pork...knuckle for him and crumbed eggplant for me. I appreciate that the restaurant was busy but I was eating virtually raw eggplant which had barely seen any frypan or grill. It was inedible so of course I left the lot and though it was mentioned to the waitress she did nothing to rectify. If you cannot cope with a busy night and provide quality food that we paid through the nose for then perhaps rethink your ability to function as a restaurant.More

Looks great from the outside, music and atmosphere make it look and feel authentic but the food and service is well below what we would have expected. Plays up to the tourists but the food was very disappointing. Sausages are thin and tasteless whilst the...sauerkraut was not edible. We would not recommend or revisit.More

I have been to Hahndorf inn about 6 times with international friends over the last 6 years and enjoying the food every time. I went today and food was terrible stale reheated rubbish which nobody enjoyed. I ordered deluxe banquet for 4 ($120 approx) and...it was only enough for 2 people, so ordered chicken wings and chips which were also just stale reheated rubbish, chips were soggy and stale. Sorry but I can never go back and bring international friends to this place again. Over $230 BILL of very very poor quality food.More

After reading reviews we thought we would give it a go. Unfortunately we didn’t have a great experience. Pork was full of inedible gristle, sauerkraut wasn’t great and I have no idea what mash I ended up with as it wasn’t potato. Partner had potato...mash and sausage which was okay but not great. Definitely not worth the $$. Walk up the road, there are a lot of places serving great food!More

We visited the Hahndorf Inn for lunch after a strudel making and walking tour. A busy hotel, the service is super fast, with German tunes on an accordian and the social bussle of a true German hotel. Serving sizes are huge and the food covers...all kinds of traditional German recipes... My wife was so excited to be able to have sausages she thought were only available in Nuremburg.. Great German beers too. Thanks so much Hahndorf Inn.. You made our day in Hahndorf. Ian and Nat (visiting from NSW)More

I will say from the outset that we felt let down by the ambience of the Hahndorf Inn. The website and social media does well in its marketing, portraying the place as a cosy, atmospheric, authentic looking place to get your German ‘fix’. But the...reality is different. Other than a few tables close to the main entry, the dining space is otherwise big and uninviting. We specifically requested a table near a fireplace and we were allocated a spot about one table depth away from a fire, so there was no great ‘cosiness’ and had we been one table further away, it would have felt cold and even more like any old non-descript pub. Now to the food – arrive hungry, expect BIG and expect borderline/acceptable but not amazing quality …and with that mindset you will be OK with the experience. Between four people we chose a sharing platter, the ‘Hahndorf Inn Deluxe’ for $110. Compared to the price of ordering individually, it was decent value given the quantity. However, the kransky had no taste of ‘rich cheddar cheese’ at all and the schnitzel portion was obliterated – completely overcooked (and the rissoles weren’t far behind). Conversely, the bowl of chips (which there was no need to order, as there was more than enough food for 4 people without extras!!) were well UNDERcooked and not seasoned at all. The mashed potato also had no business being there on the platter, squished completely underneath the weight of everything else. It should have been in a ‘vessel’ of its own. The high points, however. were the crispy knuckle, the ribs, the pretzels and the sauerkraut – they were chowed down by all without complaint! So, it was a case of the good being pretty good and the rest generally being quite forgettable!More

We were in Hahndorf for four days and we didn't notice any live music being played at the Inn during that time. That's not to say that they don't offer live music, it's just that we didn't encounter any. Be best to check... More
