The food was adequate and not expensive. The service was ok. But there was little to attract us back. It was interesting to see who the various varieties of Germans are who live in Melbourne. We have black Germans and Asian Germans, but most were traditional German people. Yes, made an effort to hear the black and Asian Germans speak, and they did speak either German or with a German accent. I was accidentally served in front of a well dressed German woman at the bar. Anecdotally, German people will quickly protest if something is wrong, and she did. I had already had a glass of wine and so my usual reticence to engage was overcome and I made an effort to apologise for the staff person's mistake and thoroughly charmed the frau.
It also goes by the name Club Tivoli. I am pleased we went. The sauerkraut was rather nice, but then I have only had it once before in Thailand.
