Regional food here is delicious, plentiful (one dish enough for two people) and inexpensive. Dining is outdoors.

On the plus side, its right in town and centrally located. Service was fine, but the food was just average. Nothing remarkable about it. Fine place to stop and have a meal, but don't expect to be blown away.

This is a fun, traditional and friendly place to eat, I had to try a “real German Wiener Schnitzel” and I wasn’t disappointed, my wife had a Veggie dish called Kaesespaetzle which was recommended and was prepared very well, don’t be frustrated by the lack of English, the staff if helpful and you will muddle through, its all part of...

I have visited Berchtesgaden on many occasions, but just never ate at the Hotel Watzmann restaurant before. What a pleasant surprise! The menu is extensive, prices decent, food wonderful. I had Hirsch-Goulasch and the meat was very tender and tasty. Also had a delicious Kaiserschmarrn. The decor is breath-taking, if you enjoy traditional Bavarian (antique) decor. I actually ate dinner... More

We sat here one night for a few chilled out beers, our waitress spoke no English but no problem as we got by with our limited German (Not too difficult ordering, reordering, paying). The other waitress spoke English and we had conversations prompted by the little Westie dog that recides here and who is a sucker for a belly rub... More

We visit Berchtesgaden a lot - this was our fourth week there - and we've got favourites amongst attractions and restaurants. The Watzmann is firmly on the list of places we always visit. We were there twice this time, both times for our evening meal. Firstly, the building is fabulous, part of the town's history and even mentioned in the... More

This charming Gasthof on the main drag through the Altstadt has good selections at reasonable prices, esp. for a tourism-centric town. We went there a couple of times, lunch, and we're not disappointed. I had the hausgemachte Sülze (like a gelatin terrine of meat pieces) served with oil, vinegar, onions, and hot potatoes. Very good, but the look might turn... More

We enjoyed several meals here on our recent vacation. The Wiener Schnitzel, Cordon Bleu, and other dishes are prepared very well, and the portions are more than ample. Not all the servers speak English, so be prepared to use your dictionary or pocket translator! They would not take our Visa card, so be sure to bring cash. The outdoor seating... More

The food is simple and good portions are bigger then normal for Europe. The beer is typical good German brew, and the atmosphere is very Bavarian. The best part of our time there was the waitress, she was working the whole place by herself and doing a great job. We never had to wait for anything or ask twice. The... More

Living in Germany has me spoiled. It's nearly unheard of to get food within 10 mins of one's order in Germany, and if it comes that fast it was pre-made--and that's what this food tasted like. In the end, it was okay. It wasn't bad but nothing spectacular and definitely not the best meal in town. That may explain why... More
