I loved this place. Non pretentious, good food, good wine (drink local wine). We arrived late for lunch but they served us and let us stay as long as we wanted. The price is very reasonable.

Place has wonderful setting, friendly staff and excellent food. Our host were happy to advise us on their specialties and local dishes. From the appetizers and main dishes to the tasty deserts, - everything came out excellent! Will go there again with no hesitation on my next visit.

Very tasty well presented German food. Huge portions, friendly efficient service. We ate here on a wet miserable night and the restaurant felt really cosy and welcoming. Returned on a sunny evening when they were very busy and the service and food was just as good.

An authentic bavarian stube with a nice selection of south german specialties. Great soups, great meat, may be not so essy to find a vegetarian option apart from cheese gnocchi. Very lovely atmosphere, authentic and genuine.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel clerk for a traditional Bavarian meal. The dining room is small so we made reservations. We did end up sharing a table with another couple, but that was part of the fun. It seems a lot of local residents eat here. The menu had all the traditional fare you would expect... More

This is a 600+ years authentic german restaurant with a great menu. Although the waitress treated us like naughty children all the time (she didn't like to work on Dec-25 probably) the setting, menu and the food was awesome. Eat the schnitzel please!!!
