I came to this amazing German restaurant expecting a mediocre food at an expensive price, being a German, I was thrilled when I arrived and was accommodated by a spectacular team of German compatriots. The food was all authentic and homemade. My family almost cried...in joy from the beutiful memories of the food our mothers made for us when we were but wee little children. I came to this establishing a tastless child yearning for delicious food and left as a burly German man. I recommend this place to anyone anywhere anytime.More

We passed on our way from the coast to Inverell and were lucky to find this gem „Rosenhof“. At 4.30 pm we were offered a scrumptious & authentic beer, dinner, cafe, cake and waffles. It all tasted deliciously- like home! we had to try it...all and buy the offered breads too. Everything was freshly cooked, most ingredients were sourced in Germany. The service was friendly and prompt. The location is very beautiful, the atmosphere was relaxed. We will be back! Honestly this has to be one of the best restaurants.More

Thanks Frank - small correction - most of our ingredients are sourced locally - only the ones we can't get here we buy in Germany - e.g. Sauerkraut, Plates, Gurken etc. We are glad you did enjoy your stay and we definitely enjoyed having you...More

We visited on a rainy Easter Sunday lunch with our two dogs. We said we were happy to sit outside under the umbrella, so they came out and lit a beautiful fire just for us. The gardens and building are spectacular. Food and drinks were...scrumptious but more than anything the service was absolutely top notch. Crazy if you don’t visit this gem!More

Excellent authentic German style cuisine located close to Tenterfield CBD, not far from the highway. Welcoming staff, very accommodating and flexible. The food is fantastic, great tasting and well portioned. Highly recommend the famous Rosenhof potato salad and German sparkling wine - Henkell Trocken! The...venue itself has a country cottage feel and is very inviting and comfortable.More

Perfect food choices and set amidst beautiful gardens and close to the centre of town. It felt we were miles away from the world. The property is beautifully renovated whilst keeping its heritage character. The owners are welcoming and happily told us about the heritage...of the property. Our family group loved the lunch and the breakfast. I would like to be there every day....More

We accidently found this restaurant when visiting Tenterfield. I had read about it, but had no idea where it was. The atmosphere was wonderful, inside so well done. Outside the lovely rose gardens are perfect. The food is marvellous considering i had never really tried...German recipes before. Have been 3 times now and shall definitely be back in February/March.More
