If you haven’t heard of Maggie’s Restaurant in Potts Point then you probably aren’t a gay man or woman from Sydney. It has become an institution of great food and atmosphere.

Tucked in behind the Alamein fountain at 50 Macleay St, not only is it a place of mouth-watering German-Austrian cuisine but the restaurant itself has a unique decor which takes you back in time.

If you aren’t met at the door by Maggie herself you will be greeted by the maître d’, Dave, with a politeness and friendliness that is hard to find in modern busy 24-hour nonstop Sydney.

Start your experience in the Velluto lounge with a great selection of German beers or a glass of your choice of wine or spirits. Then the dining experience starts with a selection of tasty morsels for entree. Enjoy deep-fried camembert with cranberry jam, Dutch beef croquettes or perhaps the tastiest of treats — the fried champignons.

With the taste buds buzzing and begging for more, move on to an amazing choice of main courses. Select one of the chef’s specials or a steak — that’s if you can go past the famous veal or chicken schnitzel with a selection of sauces which go so well every time with the rosti potatoes.

If you can find a spare place on the plate not covered in fantastic food then you’re looking too hard at the wrong thing — eating at Maggie’s truly is ‘food glorious food’.

Finishing off the night with their trademark strudel is a wonderful way to celebrate Oktoberfest or any time of the year for that matter. Wunderbar!
