Firstly, I had no idea what German food entailed before my first visit to Brotzeit several years back. However, if what I've seen, ate and drank is indeed authentic German beer and food, I would like more German restaurants in the market. Just go easy on the sauerkraut please!

The ambience of each Brotzeit branch is similar. Inviting and chill out are the two words that come to mind. I see it as a place for people to unwind after work, having a few beers and a plate of sausages or watching a weekend EPL match over a dinner of pork knuckle. With dimmed lights and comfy benches, what's not to like?

The food is on the meatier side, with wienerschnitzel and pork knuckle at the forefront. Not forgetting the sausages Germans are so famous for as well. With the food gravitating more to the macho side, the restaurant would be best for a guy and his mates to chow down. For a German restaurant, the beer would be one thing to look out for. In Brotzeit's case, I'm impressed by the wide selection of beers, with both dark and white beers. Additionally, Brotzeit brings in Spetzi, a German orange-cola drink and flavoured Schnapps.

Lastly, I find Brotzeit a great place to have a meal, but the food is on the pricier side. That's a minor gripe considering rising food prices everywhere in Singapore. I believe people would either really like/dislike Brotzeit, inviting polarising views, with German food not being easily found in Singapore.

One of my haunts for an after-work drink and a good catch-up with mates. There is a good, relaxing atmosphere here and Paulaner beers on tap that is perfect with bratwurst. I would also recommend the pork knuckle.

Beers-wise, the Dunkel Hefe Weissbier will be my choice for a stand-out brew. The flavours are rich and malty, and has a nice long finish that is worth savouring.

My only warning is that this place fills up quite fast during peak hour, so be prepared for a lively atmosphere and very busy service staff.

Finally paid a visit to Brotzeit after walking past it countless times and not even checking out the menus simply because it didn't look affordable.

Tried this for the first time on the tab of my German professor in school. This was a little surprising, because I'd expected Germans to have high expectations of German food and frankly i didn't think that any establishment would be able to replicate the kind of food they were so used to in Germany. So when he suggested this, it came as a surprise to me.

From the point of view of a local, the food was good, though I can't say if it is similar/dissimilar to those in Germany. I shared a pork knuckle platter and sausage platter with my course mates, and I have to say it really satisfied everyone, with only some complaints that the skin of the pork knuckle was a tad too dry and hard.

The dessert dish was chocolate lava cake, and while I have to say it was good and an appropriate conclusion to the meal, I have had better elsewhere. However, there is nothing to complain about.

The ambience was really lively, and very stereotypically German, with people bonding over meat and beer.
The food may be a little bit pricey for some; this definitely isn't a place that students will frequent, but the occasional splurge on a restaurant such as this is definitely worth it!

I thought this place was a classy German bar.

And it did not disappoint me.

The prices are on the high side but a worthy price for the atmosphere. It was probably a football season but I didn't know better - I just looked at the screen and selected my favourite color and cheered mindlessly.

We ordered a roasted pork knuckles and I got myself a Heinken (Heinken all day any day every day 24/7 1314 yong bu fen li) and it was quite an ill combination. Beer goes with pizza and nothing else.

Still, the knuckle was pretty good. It tasted very Chinese though. Well anyway, I wouldn't want to eat the next time I come. One cannot look glam half through some pork while cheering an unknown team on.

Not a bad place.

I love Brotzeit. It is where I grab a beer with my old pals and catch up with them. The drinks are amazing, food good and ambience perfect.

The sausages offered are also a good accompaniment to the beer that I am enjoying. The sausages are not too oily, they are extremely savoury and crunchy and are as good as German sausages get. During peak hours though, be prepared to wait as this place is popular with both locals and expats alike, especially so when there is an important soccer match going on that is being screened in the restaurant.

This is quite the man's chilling out place. With a tv showing soccer matches, to a selection of beer and a great deal of meat, i get why the restaurant was filled with more men than women. This german restaurant serves what the germans are famous for. Their huge sausages! They offer a variety of all sorts of sausages from pork, chicken, beef, smoked, straight, spiral, grilled.

I had a sausage set with comes with sides and a glass of beer. Spent about $20+ which was affordable. If you're not used to german sausages, the taste might come up a little too strong. Their have about 15 brands of beers to select from although they could have more variety considering that most of their customers go there for the beer and to chill.

My friend and I still did not manage to skip the queue despite attempts to reach earlier than the normal dinner crowd. We were very glad that the food did not disappoint us at all. The staff were very attentive to our orders and requests. They even asked if the food tasted okay as we were eating. Both of us felt that it was a very thoughtful gesture of the restaurant to train the staff in such manners.

We ordered the famous roasted pork knuckles, grilled salmon and a soup. All of these were fantastic. The pork knuckle was roasted till its skin was so crispy but the meat inside still remained tender and juicy. The salmon was also grilled to its finest as well. The price is a little steep but we were overall very satisfied with the food! Beer was served on tap and it tasted very smooth too! It was a pity that the selection of beer was too little though.

Every branch of Brotzeit I walk past invites me in; and they have many branches in Singapore.
It is just something about the dim lighting, the wooden panels, and the cozy restaurant atmosphere. I more than not succumb to the temptation to seat my butt at a table with my partner/friends, order some delicious German dishes, and a mug of German beer. And go "Ahhh..."

I’m not an expert but the food seems to be authentic German food, with a wide range of dishes - Juicy and thick German sausages that are served with sauerkraut and rosti, healthy steamed chicken with salad, etc. The beer is of course, German beer. Service wise, perhaps they could be slightly more attentive at certain branches.

To me, Brotzeit is perfect for winding down after a tense day at work, with hearty conversations over good food and good beer.

Brotzeit certainly serves up delicious and large portions of German foods. When I entered the restaurant, I was greeted with a dim and urban designed restaurant, and it felt cosy and warm. It had a very calm atmosphere to it as well.
I tried the pork knuckle and this german like pasta dish with cheese, and it was absolutely amazing. The pork knuckle had crispy skin, and soft and succulent meat beneath the skin. It was very tantalizing to my taste buds as I dipped the pork in the various sauces provided! Simply delicious. The cheese pasta-like dish was fabulous as well. The cheese sauce isn't any typical cheese sauce, it is rich and smooth and just completely amazing.
I also tried the lava cake with vanilla ice cream and it was pretty average to me, but worth a try! Overall, I thought that it was worth the money as although the dishes weren't cheap, the generous portions and wonderful taste made up for it. I am sure to be back for more!!

As the saying goes, a parched throat can only be quenched by German Beer. So look no further than Brotzeit, a German restaurant that serves not only a wide range of beer, wine and schnapps, but also authentic German food.

Treat yourself to the view of the sea as you seat outside the restaurant along the Harbourfront Boardwalk. Fireworks display from Universal Studios Singapore can also be seen on Friday and Saturday nights. The staff are also very friendly and welcomed us warmly to get seated.

We ordered the German chicken and pork sausage and I can say that I have never seen or tasted sausages like that. The meat was really tender and juicy and they have their special dips which really complements the sausage well. I would also recommend their crispy pork knuckle, but only for sharing as the serving size is huge. It was quite hard on the outside and it tasted like roasted pork with layers of fat in between but the inner meat is actually quite soft. Please do not attempt to finish this on your own.

Overall an awesome place to hangout in Vivocity.

I haven't had any prior dining experiences with Bavarian food, and I was excited to visit Brotzeit, a restaurant I have passed by many times while in Raffles City. Luckily, on the day I was there, they had a dinner special set meal for $30++. I was stuck between the Ripperl - Honey Bavarian Pork Ribs and the Ente - Roasted Duck. I eventually went for the Ripperl. A side order of their sausage platter preced my meal. I was left with mixed feelings with the platter. Their mutton sausage was cooked to perfection, meaty and succulent. The pork sausage was seriously tasty, with the sauerkraut dip blending in perfectly with the meat. The side salad that came along with the platter however, left alot to be desired. I have never tasted such a flat, tasteless salad before, and the purple lettuce had a pungent smell to it and a slightly wet feel to it.

My main came, and the portion was quite sizable. The aroma of the honey caught me and I was carving away before long. The ribs were quite meaty and not the skinny sort. The bones were remarkably soft and juicy on their own. I ended the meal with a glass of their house wine, which came along with the set. cherry wine, first time I tried it, and I liked it. Letting it swirl in my mouth let me appreciate the deepness of the flavour. Will head back to Brotzeit again for more sausages!
