Thanks everyone :D I'm trying to get them up as fast as I can churn 'em out

Thank you Brenda for dropping by! I love your Dining TRs - girl, you are sooo funny! I can't believe you are off to Disney World already, but I'm looking forward to your TRs when you get back Say Hi to Rickey Rouse for us... we're big Simpsons fans too

A few people have asked about the offsite reviews, so I might post them up after I'm done with the good stuff

You can check the menus on the DISBoards, but I'm more than sure there would be a child's menu. I never saw one, but I'm sure I've seen one on the boards. Cinderella features at Breakfast and Lunch in the Castle, Dinner is not a character meal, although you do get a photo with Cindy downstairs, and photos with Suzy and Perla upstairs and we had a great time

Biergarten, Germany

OK, Guess what? We were actually early for this one! We arrived at Biergarten around 20 minutes early. This calls for a celebration in itself! So since we were a bit early we went and pottered around in the Teddy Bear shop, admiring all the Steiffs in there. Failing to get Els to buy me a horribly expensive bear, still 10 minutes early we checked into Biergarten.

We were handed a beeper, but only waited around 5 minutes before being called. We waited for the rest of our table then took our seats. Our waiter introduced himself and he was very friendly, explaining everything about the place and the buffet. We placed our drinks order with him - Sprite for me and a Stein of beer for Els - and got up to hit the buffet.

There are 2 buffets side by side and they are one and the same - the selection was really good, lots of salads, lots of different types of sausage, then hot items, and desserts. When we returned, our drinks were waiting which is always good. Now I must apologise in advance for the pall in photos, but as we had another family sitting next to us I thought it was best not to freak them out too much - nevertheless I did get a sneaky few. Here is Els' plate and Monster beer:

You can see a selection of sausages on his plate, some leek and potato soup (which was absolutely delicious) and behind that out of view is some Schnitzel with Jager sauce. He absolutely loved the soup and the Jager sauce - which is really strange since he hates mushrooms! My Dad lived in Germany for 5 years whilst he was in the army, and he told us before we went that if there was Jagerschnitzel there to try it - and we're glad we did!

Here is my first plate:

In the centre is the leek and potato soup, which was truly yummy. Then clockwise from behind the bowl we have a piece of pork (good cut, very tender), carrots, a sausage, potatoes (much better than the ones at Boma!), Jagerschnitzel (I think the schnitzel was a bit overcooked, but it still truly was lovely), Tomato Salad (Never before have I said this about a salad and never again will I - very simple, but it really hit the spot! It was fantastic), then some more sausage varieties - all of which were good but some I liked better than others. Also behind the soup is a piece of pretzel bread This was soooo good in the soup!

We made polite conversation with the family on the table, they were really nice, a family from the States but the dad came from Cyprus - a popular holiday destination for Brits so we talked about that for a while.

We went up to get seconds but unfortunately I don't have a photo of these. I just got another bowl of soup, pretzel bread, tomato salad (lots!) and some thin dark sausages that tasted like pepperami (so good!). Els I think went for soup, schnitzel and sausage.

We had yet to conquer the desser section, so we went up to get just a bit since we were full up. Again I don't have photos, but let me tell you, all I remember off the dessert section was the Bavarian Cheesecake - it was reeeaaally good. It didn't really have a crust like normal cheesecake but it was so light it just melted in your mouth. Oh wait, Els just reminded me we both had Apple Strudel with Vanilla Cream and that was also VERY good!

Overall: An excellent buffet and we both really enjoyed this. It is probably more geared towards meat eaters, but there are plenty of salads and of course the soup, and the like if someone in the party doesn't eat meat. The food was very fresh and it was replenished often. It also made a very welcome change from burgers! Even buffet-hating Els enjoyed this one!

Ambience: It was a very fun atmosphere, and we caught the band onstage twice during our meal. I had read somewhere that the last show was 6.55pm but then we saw another one around 20-30 mins later. The guys are really talented at what they do and their Act was slightly different both times. They do try to get the diners to join in, and with the band, steins and amazing theming of this place - it really does feel as though you're in Munich!



Enjoying the Biergarten!

H RATING: 9/10
E RATING: 9/10
WOULD WE EAT HERE AGAIN? Definately, it's the only buffet down on our 'repeats' list for next year and we're really looking forward!

Please don't be worried about Boma, I am glad I tried it and there is plenty to eat there... even if you don't like the African things, there are plenty of great meats, soups and lots of dessert - which is basically what I ate and I was full up! You might even love it! Different strokes for different folks and all that. But I am so jealous you get to be there in 2 weeks!

Figaro Fries - they had cheese, bacon bits, lettuce and tomato on, and I also thought they had sour cream on but I might be wrong
Ooh yum, will try some of those then, thanks hun!

I love this! Your writing style is fantastic. I was feeling kind of bummed that the only restaurant I could book for Thanksgiving was the Biergarten. Now I'm glad we're going there. Thank-you so much and keep up the good work.
