Been here a few times. This is a must eat place for those visiting the area. On weekends you must be patient as the wait can be real long but it's worth the wait. The staff is friendly. I don't speak German but no problems with the good or staff. Easy to make friends while dining. Fun times with guests... More

Great start to our first night in Munich. Enjoyed the goulash while my husband enjoyed the combo with pork and veal knuckle. Service was good. Convenient location. Glad we decided to dine here. Lots of good foods.

While in Munich 2 days before New Years eve the need to sample some good German food came upon a group of 6 including 3 adults and 3 children. We were a bit scared by reviews saying bookings were essential, but took the risk. As it turns out if you are prepared to eat early you can get a walk... More

the staff was friendly and professional the pork knuckle and flambed pears were excellent. That having been said even though the place wasn't stuffy or formal at all I had just spent a few hours at the Haufbrauer huse a few blocks away and was probably better suited by for grabbing a pretzel at the time

The knuckles we had were absolutely amazing!Also loves the potato dumplings and salad. Sausages were quite disappointing though.

Excellent if you are a meat lover. Everyone there loved the traditional Bavarian food, except me! Being a vegetarian, the reason to go is to soak in one of the best Bavarian atmosphere you can find in Munich. There is nothing though for a vegetarian to eat. Bring your camera, watch others thoroughly enjoying their open spit grilled pig shank... More

It's is for tourists but has very good regional food. The roasted pork meat is great. Had a good salad and a viennerschnitzel. The place is nicer and more comfortable for a meal than HB that is a block away. It is not fancy. Prices are average for Munich. Spent about $40/45euros for two with beer and food. No booking...

Brilliant, authentic food located in a charismatic traditional Bavarian setting in the heart of Munich. I was introduced to the restaurant by a business partner after being told they had been several times before and never had a bad meal - they weren't wrong!! Food was beautiful - would highly recommend. Would also highly suggest booking in advance as there... More

It is my third time visiting Munich and I never visited that restaurant! But lucky me, we came across by chance today as we were walking back to the hotel so we decided to have our dinner there. I have no words to describe our experience! As both me and my husband love food and meet we try to find... More

I ate the Bavarian duo of Pork & Veal slices with potato dumplings and fresh pretzels all of which was tasty. Definitely worth a visit if you're near this part of the centre.

Our old Munich city restaurant is part of a historical building, the Scholastikahaus, which was historically documented for the first time in the 14th century. The Kufflers renovated the restaurant elaborately. Today "Haxnbauer" is a popular meeting point for the established Munich population and guests from all corners of the world.

At the grandiose Haxengrill delicately seasoned pork knuckles and veal joints ("Haxen") are tenderly grilled on the beech wood charcoal grill and served as a crispy unique delicacy. The knuckles are marinated 24 hours in a (secret!) Salt-herb mixture before they are grilled. The meat smells fantastic and with its unique taste, crispy crust and delicate meat definitely lives up to its promise.

Tasty Munich specialities and modern dishes round off the offer at Haxnbauer in every respect.
