Having visited in a couple similar places during the visit this was clearly only average. It is a typical place where you have large tables and may end up sitting with others which usually pumps up the athmosphere which is a nice thing. That night the place was nearly packed too, mostly with locals I suspect - not many foreigners around. Their English menu for example was very different from their English or German menu on their website (and English menu didn't have prices like the German menu did, guess they don't need to update it so often then)...

Anyway, we ordered and it certainly took time to get the portions but it was nearly full so no harm there. However the service is extremely amateurish since the first meal to our party of two was delivered nearly 5 minutes before the other person got his food! Sure, it may be some local custom (?) but it is plain rude to me if you come in as a group of two and the other has to wait so long for his meal.

Food quality was only average at best - I've had much better local portions. As mentioned, this is not a touristic place while it is within walking distance of everything important. And the prices do reflect this, it's rather cheap. Could be a very nice place with the splendid athmosphere but the food kind of ruins it.

Be prepard to brush on your German, the ladies do not speak English. One did, but we had at least 4 different waiters serve our table during the night - very strange that too (= no tip for sure).

Really enjoyed the food and the Bavarian ambience. The British in me resented sharing a table with strangers, especially as we had our 5 year old with us who was being a bit winey (moaning, not on the booze!). Still the food was fantastic and really reasonable. Bravo Germany!

Came here on the recommendation of a resident, the restaurant isn't much to look at and the service for us was fine, the food however was a triumph. I ordered the pork with crackling and dumpling and it was excellent, perfectly executed and delicious.

The restaurant isn't easy to find but if you do, you're in for a treat.

I came here by myself for dinner on recommendation of Monocle 25-25. It was a great Bavarian experience! The atmosphere is very joyous. Waiters are attentive and fast. The tables are square and it is expected that you share with strangers (which is kinda great if you are by yourself and can talk to randoms). The food I think is very nice. I think this must be authentic Bavarian fare as it was packed with happy German people!

This came highly recommended by out hotel 'the best authentic Barvarian food in Munich'. The food lived up to it's reputation and we had a great set of table mates. The waitress missed the mark, unless authentic meant brusque and argumentative. The other couple of our table had issues in trying to settle the bill - just getting denominations straight. It took us 3 tries to get her to take our order. These ladies do hustle - only saw 2 of them covering the whole place - which is kind of interesting to watch. Authentic - yes, good food - yes, service - expect it to be efficient and cool.
