It is a large, stylish restaurant/pub. Very busy. Quite difficult to get a table up front in the pub part. Good, fast service. Multilingual staff. My colleagues liked their meals (some had the traditional "leber kaese"). I ordered (also traditional) pork hog and hated it. It was hard and dry. But the excellent beer nicely washed it down.

We have eaten at this restaurant over the years, from the 70's, and it's still had good service and good food. Also, it had a nice ambience. Make a reservation so you can be seated at the back of the space. Nicer, than up near the front door.

We were sent here by our hotel who provided us with at 25% off voucher. The food was wonderfully Bavarian with wurst, pigs knuckles, roast pig and duck. Their beer was delicious (according to my husband) and their wine selection varied and reasonably priced. The desserts were yummy as well. It is not too far from Marienplatz and we all... More

Service was quite good, but a bit pushy - until we wanted to pay - and that it seemed unattainable. Better beers elswhere
