Located in Sydney’s vibrant Newtown, Schnitzel House specialises in European cuisine (German in particular) alongside Australian classics down King Street. Taking its cues from the national dishes of Austria, Hungary, Germany and other Central European countries, Schnitzel House Newtown is a destination for inner west Sydney foodies and hop heads – the restaurant offers a big list of imported beer to wash it all down with! With the trend for Old-World food on the up and up in the city, be sure to book ahead.
Really enjoyed the food. Goulash and Jager chicken schnitzel were quite tasty. Will i go back again? I think so. Only let down was toilets and hand basins, needs a good wipe...:-)
Don't go there. "A taste of Europe in Newtown" - they must be kidding. The Schnitzels were out of a frozen packet from Coles or Woolworths. Absolute rubbish. No atmosphere, no style, no class.
Schnitzel House Newtown represents a slice of Europe in Sydney’s inner west, with premises down Newtown’s King Street giving a home to a laidback European beer tavern where, with several steins down, punters are encouraged to belt out the Ultravox synth-pop classic Vienna if they so wish. The restaurant’s fully-stocked bar is packed with German and Czech draught beers, plus a big range of rare bottled craft and microbrews, fine international wines and unusual spirits from the Old World.
Schnitzel House Newtown easily takes pride of place in Sydney’s inner west as a top-notch purveyor of rustic European specialty dishes. Simple starters like deep-fried camembert and crumbed mushrooms are great introductions to that Austrian favourite – schnitzel – prepared using veal or chicken and accompanied by a diverse range of sauces. Hearty European-style main courses include pork knuckle, Swiss and southern german weisswurst. Seafood is on the cards here, too: we recommend the grilled Atlantic salmon or barramundi. Moving closer to the Mediterranean, Schnitzel House also offers a selection of Italian pasta dishes. Be sure to book in advance for tables at one of the best representatives of old-fashioned cuisine.
