Beer, sauerkraut, mustard, pretzels – these are the offerings most commonly associated with the German kitchen. What many fail to realise, however, is that each region of the country produces their very own version of the cuisine, with different delicacies, beers and breads connected to each Bundesland, or state. At Brotzeit – meaning literally ‘bread time’ in German – in Perth, you’ll be met with some of the best food and drink that Deutschland has to offer, ranging from honey Bavarian pork ribs to wiener schnitzel to apple strudel and everything in between. Book a table for a positively German experience at Brotzeit 140 on William Street, and be sure to say prost!.
Brotzeit 140 is more than a place to drink incredible beer, it’s also one of Perth’s most recognisable German restaurants. They’re well known for a reason, and that’s because their food is authentic, the atmosphere traditional and the service impeccable. Since 2006, Brotzeit 140 has made its way overseas from its headquarters in Singapore to Malaysia, Vietnam, Hong Kong, the Philippines and finally, here to Perth CBD. This award-winning William Street restaurant offers an experience not unlike what you would find in Germany itself, a must-visit for fans of great beer and German culture.
A common misconception is that all German food is heavy, creamy and meaty. While that may be true of many authentic dishes (and that’s not necessarily a bad thing), there are also plenty of traditional specialties that appeal to seafood lovers and vegetarians like cheese spätzle, pan-seared barramundi and even a healthy superfood salad. Of course, there are still plenty of meat-heavy dishes to choose from, with our favourites being the grilled pork sausages, breaded veal escalope and their massive, beer-marinated crispy oven pork knuckle. For dessert, you can’t go wrong with their apple strudel, a Southern German favourite served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. To get a table at Brotzeit 140 in Perth CBD, we recommend that you book in advance.
Great service with friendly staff and best of all, great pork! Beers on offer were good German types and I had a very nice Pilsner. Finished our meal with a nice black forest.
Had the supreme sharing plate for 3 - it was amazing. Meat was cooked to perfection. Black Forest cake was wonderful, definitely the highlight of our meal.
Our service was great! Staff were lovely and accommodating, happy to explain to our fellow diners about some of the dishes they were unsure about. Food was delicious too!
Good food and good service. Always leave there with a full belly and our waitress was very easy-going and friendly. A tad more expensive than our last visit, but still quality dining.
This is the second time I have booked a work function at Brotzeit 140 and as always the staff are very friendly and attentive. The food is delicious and comes out so quick, we ordered two Supreme platters for 9 people and there was more than enough food for all and the price is great. Highly recommend Brotzeit 140.
We went to Brotzeit 140 to celebrate my son's 18 birthday as a family. The four of us shared the supreme platter and it was absolutely amazing! Every item on the platter was delicious and the servings were so generous that we had a hard time finishing it. The table service was excellent and we couldn't fault it. The whole experience was exactly what I had hoped it would be and we left the restaurant happy and very satisfied. Well done!
Brotzeit 140 has a nice location and staff are very friendly. The meats that we ordered on the large platter were nice in flavour but some of them were too tough to eat. This was disappointing because the restaurant is largely about the meat. Sausages were nice and cooked well, but we can cook sausages at home nicely; the other meats like beef and pork ribs and pork knuckle were partly not nicely cooked. The pork crackle skin was a bit chewy and one of the serves of beef rib was so tough none of us could eat it.
First time visiting this restaurant. The first waitress, upon taking our drink orders and we were ready to give her our food order, she disappeared and started helping other customers when we clearly have not finish talking to her. Finally, found another waitress to take our food order. She did not do a good job in recommending what was suitable to us when we asked. Upon seeing what next table ordered, we asked the same waitress “what was that” then she told us. She said what we ordered isn’t enough and we should consider what our next door neighbor ordered. We thought we might cancel 2 items and ordered a big one then waitress said you can’t order existing order, you have to add on. It’s JUST a LUNCH and do we need a super big platter (that serve 4 people) and 2 x shared platters (enough for 4 people) and a pork knuckle, all these food for 6 adults? After paying then I realized they are on Entertainment book, I asked the staff if I can get a refund and pay with the discount on my Entertaining book. Her reply was sorry we do not do refund and come back next time. I have been to establishment where I did not realize or forgotten to present my voucher before I paid, they are happy to re-process my payment. Food is average, nothing to shout about so chances of my return, not likely.
Booking was for 6.30pm on a Sunday night. When we were seated we were told that no sandwiches were available because they had run out of bread and it was too late to get any more. That wiped out a good portion of the menu options. Was very disappointed as my guests and I were looking forward to trying their popular German sandwiches. We went on the night of the new Optus stadium open day, obviously a very busy day for restaurants and bars in the city. The waitress said they ran out of ingredients because they just got so busy during the day and they have no idea why. Staff were oblivious to what events were going on in their location, despite signs, advertising, and people everywhere etc. Food we did have was very good, oblivious and non-apologetic staff were a let down.
The only sad thing about our meal at Brotzeit was we were looking for a special place to spend New Years Dinner. As I was searching on google, Brotzeit’s menu popped up as a suggestion for a New Year’s Eve dinner. But when we arrived it was obvious that we didn’t need a reservation and the waiter put us at a table with little fanfare. Meal was good though. We both had the fixed menu special for $50.00 each. We both had the Barramundi and the entre was only Camembert cheese as they were out of the Mussels. We each had separate dessert which we tasted both. Both great. I would eat there again!!
