Best Bavarian Food in Town

We will be spending one night in Munich on our way to Garmisch-Partenkirchen in July, and want to sample the best local food that Munich has to offer. Something in or near the city center if at all possible. Our holiday is a casual one, so we won't be bringing formal attire, so not really interested in restaurants that require a coat and tie, but just those that have great Bavarian food. Cost is not an issue, as long as the quality is there.

#1 choice would be the Ratskeller München in the basement of the Neues Rathaus on Marienplatz.

http://www.ratskeller.com/

click on the UK flag to download a menu pdf

Between Marienplatz and the Frauenkirche is the Bratwurstglöckl am Dom.

For a pdf menu click on the UK flag at:

Along the east side of the Viktualienmarkt are:

Bratwurstherzl @ Dreifaltigkeitsplatz 1

A menu in German is at:

Restaurant zum Alten Markt @ Dreifaltigkeitsplatz 3

http://www.zumaltenmarkt.de/

For a menu in German, click on ‘Ein blick in die Speiskarte’

The old ‘touristy’ standby is the Hofbräuhaus.

There is a less rowdy dinning room upstairs.

Wow! Thanks DougB! You're not only a big help on our upcoming Seville trip, but your advice for Munich dining sounds right on point as well. Thanks again. You are a real TA asset.

We ate at several of the beer halls (Franziskaner, Hofbrauhaus, Lowenbrauhaus, and Spaten). In my opinion, Franziskaner had the best food.

Thanks all. Surely, out of all these choices we will be able to find a great meal. I only wish we had more time in Munich.

And a very old and really typical Bavarian restaurant - where also the ordinary Munich people like to go - and not so expensive - is the Donisl right at Marienplatz, corner to Weinstrasse. It is really something special because it still has "the charme" of the traditional old Munich beer restaurants, usually also with some bavarian music inside. And with nice weather you can sit outside just in front and watch life on the Marienplatz in front of our Town Hall. I just today had my lunch there with 1/4 duck and 2 knodel (very good) and (as I don't dring alcohol) a coke.
