Prost! Did someone say it’s Oktoberfest every month?

Why restrict Oktoberfest to one month of the year?

You can now get your beer and German food served by The Bavarian team in full German costume of dirndls and lederhosen every month.

Oktoberfest Saturdays begins on Saturday March 6 and will continue on the first Saturday of every month.

The mini-Oktoberfest themed days in full German costume will include live oompah band vibes throughout the day and into the evening.

A Best of Bavaria set menu includes haus-baked pretzels, a Bavarian signature tasting platter featuring crackling pork belly, the famous roast pork knuckle, German sausages, chicken schnitzel and all the trimmings, as well as apple strudel for dessert.

There will be singing, dancing, feasting and plenty of prosting with beer steins and glasses of schnapps.

The Bavarian’s schnitzel of the month is also back in March.

This month’s golden-crusted chicken breast comes with a garlic and parmesan rub, delivering a non-traditional cheesy-garlicky kick.

The $24 schnitty is served with rocket, semi-dried tomato and parmesan salad, and a cheeky side of fries.
