Unique different room style in different corner of the restaurant. We were in the room "jail" and enjoyed the whole ambience. My food was superb and the service was fantastic...

I'll keep this brief as I don't normally write reviews. I was intrigued by this place as I have a penchant for dive-bars and speakeasy type joints. There's a bit of a musty smell going down the stairs, but fair enough - it's an old cellar bar. There was a fruit fly in the beer, but fair-enough that could happen... More

This place is under a movie theater in Munich, near the river. The entrance is on the river side of the movie theater. As you enter the stairwell and descend into the bar you will see lots of brickwork. The whole place used to be a museum. The bar and food is quite good. It will usually be pretty empty... More

Food and service are good. Prices are adequate. There is something interesting at this place. I think that this happens on tuesday, I am not sure. The thing is that they are playing the Opera Dreigroschen (from Bertold Brecht) among the tables while you are having dinner. Amazing experience!

Went there one evening during our stay in Munich, seeing as it was close to our hotel, and with an interesting theme - the Dreigroschenoper (thirty cents opera) is famous in Germany. Was not disappointed - the food was quite good though not fantastic, the beer good, and the prices reasonable for Munich. Would go back there, and especially recommend... More

This is not a typical biertgarten or bavarian restaurant, as the owner made us notice while we were ordering our food. I asked for "bretzel" but they don't serve them. Well, that's good. Becaouse all the food we had, and we had a lot, was great! The beer was superb, but that's easy in Munich. What we really enjoy is... More

Went for dinner here as recommended by a friend. The atmosphere down in the cellar is very nice and service is very friendly and attentive. We received our order fairly quick seeing as there were only 2 other tables aside from us. Both the Riesenschnitzel as the Pflanzerl Trilogie (three different kind of meatballs) were good, hearthy dishes accompanied by... More

Great atmosphere and the deco is based on the three penny opera with theme areas. The young, friendly service staff aren't the fastest servers and they can't compensate thou for the very average food and the now missing micro-brewery that was once housed here. Never the less, a cult place to go, just don't expect too much and you'll have... More

Only popped in for a beer, but glad we did. This small and cooky bar is accessed by going down into the basement of the building. Some interesting and conversation-starting decorations, friendly staff, and welcoming atmosphere.

So, I have known this place since the 1990s when they used to serve their own 'pop-top' bottles of beer which rocked BIG time! Even had a leaving-do there in '99 which was a seriously entertaining happening. Any road, went there last night for the first time in yonks for a beer and a snack before going back up to... More
