This IS the place for eating in town if you are looking for your traditional German menu. We have eaten here numerous times and have never been disappointed. Portions are huge. Ingredients fresh. Pleasant and professional waitstaff. This restaurant is part of the local World Cup winning brewery so you know the beer is great ! Reservations are a must... More

The restaurant is very busy lunchtime and early evening, so if your going best to book. The menu is in German but the staff will help if your struggling. On the subject of staff they worked very hard in... More

I've been to this restaurant a few times now and the food is always great. Good quality ingredients, perfectly cooked. It's always busy so make sure you book - lunch or Dinner! Traditional Bavarian restaurant with a good selection of beers, not much wine to choose from.

Good traditional food, an amazing Scheinshaxen. Outside seating at the promenade is recommended (good weather). Only male servers, no worries they are friendly and funny to.

We have visited the Hirsch on several occasions over the years through skiing on the Oftershwang just up the road and its fantastic. A typical great Bavarian hostelry serving great German beer and great food. We have never stayed here overnight but have booked a night travelling through this February. Cant wait.

One of the best places in Sonthofen (the location is great). If you want typically Allgäuen/Bavarian dishes, this is the good place in Sonthofen. Very good local beer and traditional food for a reasonable price. Booking strongly advised. The service is not excellent (the staff is not very friendly - cold service) but If you want to taste typical German... More

This little gem in the middle of Sonthofen is as traditional as Bavaria gets! from its spacious typical décor to wenches in traditional dress. We were welcomed with a smile and English menus. The big bonus, it's the local brewery as well and the beer is to die for, so much so that I ended up drinking from a stein... More
