The Haus Cafe Bar Restaurant is spacious, but because it is divided into very separate zones, is not cavernous. Very European in style, it has vaulted timber ceilings, large beams and huge linen light shades hung in groups, There is an assortment of table groupings throughout. Exposed brick walls are stencilled with murals depicting Hahndorf's historical German past. One space can be completely closed off for private functions, and outside is a delightful alfresco area overlooking Hahndorf's main street. We ordered from the wide ranging menu, that included specialised German Dishes and delectable Pizzas, A premium Wagyu schnitzel lightly crumbed with sage and onion served with salad, beer battered chips & Dianne sauce, and a prosciutto wrapped chicken breast, served with white wine and cream mushroom risotto, sundried tomato pesto & spring onions. Both dishes were of a generous size, prepared and presented to a very high standard and as expected, delicious, the local wine suggested, Sidewood Adelaide Hills Savignon Blanc, perfect. We skipped the dessert menu and opted for cakes from the large display cabinet, accompanied by coffee. The service was faultless, the atmosphere was buzzing, a very satisfying dining experience.
