This restaurant is across the road from the tourist centre so we stopped in for an early lunch before our Eagles Nest tour back in September. We were a little concerned at first as it was almost empty and a bit run-down on the outside, but it turned out to be a good choice. The staff don't speak much English,... More

Had some time to kill before the Eagle's Nest tour, so we popped in here for a quick lunch. The decor is certainly dated, and restaurant as a whole seems run-down, but our meal (vegetarian tortellini) was actually pretty good - hearty and flavorsome.

Across the street from the tourist center of Berchtesgaden you'll find this hotel with combined restaurant. Good prices and constantly crowded speaks for itself, but I must stress that it's definitely worth a visit. Although no English speaking staff, there are English menues and it isn't really a problem ordering in spite of language obstacles. The best dish so far... More

Slightly run-down building across the street from Info-Ctr, departure pt for Eagle's Nest tours. Service polite, décor needs freshening.

Convenient location to tour group. Ate in lovely outdoor beer garden. Tried the specials of asparagus soup and deer and schnitzel. Tasted great. We also had the delicious caprese. My son enjoyed his noodle soup and spaghetti. Service was good. It was a slow afternoon and they didn't speak English but why should they?! They were friendly and efficient.

We were three couples who stayed next door at the Gruenberger Hotel. We walked over to the Schwabenwirt at 1930hrs for dinner. The restaurant was very quiet. We almost thought they were not serving dinner. There were other local diners once we got inside. Our wait person spoke English which is really helpful. I ordered an pork steak with onion,... More

Being a Sunday, choice was very limited around the area before we went to Eagles Nest tour. Located by a beautiful river, I would say the view more than compensates for the place. Furnishings are in urgent need of revamp. The food turned out quite good, we had vegetarian spaghetti and smoked trout, acceptable to our taste and price of... More

Stopped in before our return train trip to Munich. They have an outdoor seating area but it was closed due to rain showers. The Weiner Schnitzel was large and tender and the fries nicely done. My wife had a chicken which she enjoyed. They serve the local beer which is very good. Only issue was that they were training some... More

When we entered the restaurant, nobody even noticed us so we took the menu from other table by ourselves. The interior looks shabby and the meals didn't persuade us either. I had a deer ragout with mushroom sauce and the sauce was very thin, almost like a soup. Wouldn't recommend.
