The Haus - 38a Main Street HahndorfA lovely weekend trip up to Hahndorf saw my family drop by The Haus for lunch. Mixed reviews from Urbanspoon and close acquaintances had our guards up but our grumbling stomachs were keen so full steam ahead.
We had booked about 2 hours prior to arriving and were informed that we’d be placed at a high seated table. Although not ideal, we were just grateful for getting a booking on a busy Sunday. However, we were pleasantly surprised when on arriving we were seated at a low table with bench seating in front of a man playing the piano and a crackling fire – tops for ambiance! However, it should be mentioned that there was some initial confusion on the ordering system with one staff member stating that meals were to be ordered at the counter while another indicated table service would be available. In the end it turned out to be a combination of both - only a slight inconvenience.

The Haus is a popular eatery on the Hahndorf main strip and bookings are recommended. There are mixed reviews on Urbanspoon in regards to the service and this has been backed up by some of our close friends who reside in the hills region. Although we could see how this could be, we didn't have an unpleasant experience on this visit and if purely rated on the food, then the Haus is winning.
Jess gives The Haus 15/20 chops on The Chopping Board.
