Sitting outside this restaurant next to Konigsee eating delicious food is an ideal way to pass some time. Try it.

We ate there twice during our stay in Königssee. The service was very quick and the staff was very friendly. The food is as you can expect on a tourist spot.

We arrived a bit late for Dinner at this venue but that did not bother the waiting staff. The day was sunny and cool but not too unpleasant not to enjoy the outdoor patio. Our choices reflected the area so we chose sausages with fried potatoes. Very fitting for a later evening light meal. Of course, we also had beer,... More

Staff no friendly, the price are quite high, the salad was really bad but the Käsespätzle were nice (small though for German Standard)

The place is very well located right in the side of the lake but the food took about 45 min after we ordered and one of the plates was clearly cooked with old fat, the taste: used fat. To finish our visit the toilet was in bad conditions and no toilet paper.

We rode through the sunshine in search of a cold crisp beer and a bite to eat. The beauty of the Alps surrounded us and as the sweat rolled down our faces we arrived at the Konigssee in search of its world renowned natural beauty. Amidst the crush of cheap touristy crap and bored seasonal workers that populate the lake... More

Great food, great service, great view. This restaurant is right beside the lake and is very popular. Although the menu at the front of the seating area is in German, the waiter gave us an English menu and there was plenty of choice. The food was delicious and the service was both efficient and friendly. A very enjoyable meal all... More

After lake walks we stopped for lunch and ordered typical bavarian lunch of sauerkraut with ham hocks and potatoes. Our friends had fried lwhole lake fish which was a combination of salmon trout and more boiled potatoes. Sitting at the lake edge watching ducks get their prey, drinking draft beer and enjoying company there was nothing to complain about the... More

we stayed 3 nights at Schiffmeister hotel and had perfect view from our balcony over Königssee lake. Hotel standard is moderate and food is acceptable but its still worth a stay because of the fantastic panorama view. Restaurant is busy serving everyday arriving tourists, best dish on menu is the local fish but a bier on the biergarten with a... More
