Aussie! Aussie! Aussie! Oh? Oh? Oh? There must be a typo here… Austrian food in the heart of Richmond? Nein, it’s exactly as it looks: Bierkeller By Ost is a tribute to the brot and bier of the Central European nation in the eastern Melbourne suburb. You can find them on Bridge Road, right by Richmond Town Hall, so book a table now and set off for a meal that is a slice – or a spaetzle – of Vienna in the Victorian capital.

Great little Bistro, food is not the standard heavy over served fair for this style. Good produce well handled.
It was all good with very friendly service and lovely food.
Consistently delicious and high quality. Friendly waiters. We eat here regularly and are always happy.
The long and storied relationship between Austria and Australia has been predominantly based on mutually-poor spelling, but down at Bierkeller By Ost on Bridge Road in Richmond, they are building a new level of intercultural cooperation. Their menu is an authentic taste of Austria in the middle of Melbourne, and if you schlep over, you are sure of a strudel, schnitzel and spaetzle to satisfy your hunger.
As one would expect of an Austrian restaurant, the classics of Central European cuisine feature highly on the menu at Bierkeller By Ost. You can begin your meal on Bridge Road in Richmond with a pretzel – with Austrian mustard – and follow it up with a Wiener Schnitzel with chips, a roast pork hock or, wurst case scenario, a sausage. Wash it down with any number of Austrian beers and you’ve got a great Melbourne meal on your hands.
