Timeless German culinary classics like roast pork knuckles crook their crispy digits and beckon you to enter Der Biergarten, whose straightforward name translates not at all roughly to The Beer Garden. It’s a German thing. First, you’ll have to get past the haunting suit of armour that guards the entrance to this German restaurant’s Prinsep Place premises, on Prinsep Street, named after a Singapore nutmeg merchant whose thousands of nutmeg shrubs once covered most of downtown Singapore. Once on the inside, you have the run of the place.

Chicken schnitzel (gesundheit!) is another firm, tender favourite at Der Biergarten.
It’s just one of many great examples of German cuisine lined up for your inspection
in Der Biergarten’s well-organised menus. If the Singapore weather is somehow a
little chilly, why not begin with a warming bowl of goulasch suppe (goulash soup – a
spicy beef stew) served with German bread. Or slide up slowly to a sautéed snail,
plucked from its shell and dressed instead in garlic butter and white wine. That’s one
drunk and skunky snail! The main course is, of course, where things get serious. You
have your orders, follow soup and starters with the sausage platter and experience
what it’s really like to be a German at this wunderbar German restaurant down
Singapore’s Prinsep Street.
You’ll really be smiling from Guinness beef cheek to Guinness beef cheek if you happen across Der Biergarten during the infamous Oktoberfest drinking marathon. This venue in Singapore’s Prinsep Place is often hosting live jazz and popular schlager tunes to get you on your feet and hitching up your lederhosen, but when the steins of beer as large as your sausage- filled belly start appearing during this annual forget-the-past fest you know you’re going to be transported to some far away place where friends and family alike all step to the same party tune. You’ve been warned – Singapore is in for one lecker treat at Der Biergarten!
The food was ok, although I expected more than just 2 sausages on the 'platter'. The 'Happy hour' wasn't that much of a saving on the fairly expensive beer and true to Singaporean form, our appetiser arrived after the first mains dish. Wouldn't recommend.
if you are looking for a place with great food ND place, this is it!
