We phoned in the afternoon for a reservation and left a voicemail. Tried again later still no one answered. Received a call at 5:04pm saying we had a reservation for 5:10pm!! We were in the parking lot when we got the call!! I should have know where this was going.
After trekking up a long flight of stairs we were taken to a booth near a loud group of red hat women, at our request to be seated further away we were given another booth only 2 away from them. We were left seated without menus for about 10 minutes, no one approached for drink orders. When the server finally appeared she was friendly but distracted. The service was slow and not very personal, she never introduced herself.
Our tea was served tepid and the teapots didn't hold enough water to fill the mugs. It took forever for her to return, but after we received the food the staff stopped by so often it became quite annoying. The server said we had a choice between rice and potatoes, but when we ordered this was somehow forgotten - we were served the potatoes.
We ordered from the 'feature' sheet; Vienna schnitzel with Lobster bake and Bavaria schnitzel topped with hollandaise, crab & shrimp. The meals came with goulash soup & garlic toast - the soup was salty and tasteless. The server said it was a ground beef / tomato base with vegetables, I had 1 or 2 tiny bits of beef (?) in my bowl and no vegetables at all. The schnitzels were breaded pork, cooked nicely, they came with roasted potatoes and cooked red cabbage. The main course was tasty but not good enough to warrant a second visit.
As for the red hat women, they were loud and boorish - shouting constantly, and performing loud ear-piercing whistles, it was too bad the staff didn't take a stand and ask them to tone it down.
My experince at the Bavaria Restaurant was not great, I would not recommend it and I will not return.
