We dropped into Haxnbauer for an early dinner, particularly by European standards, as it was close to our hotel. The service was gruff and inattentive. The food was good, without being outstanding, and the wine was limited in choice. It was a hot day and...More

If you want to eat a lot of meat, this is a good place. (but the knuckle is a little too salty to me) However, I get the worst experience when I check the bill. We (two people) total eat 79.5 euro, and the waiter...More

Well they do have other dishes, but this is the place to eat pork knuckles, it's tender juicy inside and crispy outside. Very large portions, me and my wife shared one knuckle (the smallest one they have on offer) and it was almost too much....More

The real typical bavarian cuisine! Good meat and other dishes. I fell really in love with their wonderful roasted pork shank! Of course good beer. Fair prices and friendly service.

This was our family's first visit to Munich. The pork and veal combo was a special treat for all of us. They were crispy on the outside and moist inside. These combined with German Beer??? Need I say more?

Yes, the food was fine but the service? NOT AT ALL. It was the worst service I have ever had. The server was rude, arrogant and even mad. He acted irritated all the time without a reason and even forced us to give a tip....More

Our old Munich city restaurant is part of a historical building, the Scholastikahaus, which was historically documented for the first time in the 14th century. The Kufflers renovated the restaurant elaborately. Today "Haxnbauer" is a popular meeting point for the established Munich population and guests from all corners of the world. At the grandiose Haxengrill delicately seasoned pork knuckles and veal joints ("Haxen") are tenderly grilled on the beech wood charcoal grill and served as a crispy unique delicacy. The knuckles are marinated 24 hours in a (secret!) Salt-herb mixture before they are grilled. The meat smells fantastic and with its unique taste, crispy crust and delicate meat definitely lives up to its promise. Tasty Munich specialities and modern dishes round off the offer at Haxnbauer in every respect.
