I do agree with other recent reviews that noted the slow service. The staff were perfectly friendly and good English speakers - they just got overwhelmed a bit with a full lunch crowd, and we really had to wait for things toward the end of our meal. That said, the location and the restaurant itself are charming - both in... More

Sit with your husband and two kids.... Watch as they serve the kid free table next to you and ignore your table alltogether No. The kids were not being loud or obnoxious. We waited another 10 ish mins and took the awkwardness out of it for all and left and enjoyed a full meal for four elsewhere ...

Concentrate on the food. Nice square, we had planned to go to another place close by, ended up here. Usual welcome/funny looks and grunting from the staff. If you've read any of my other reviews this is not a bad thing, it's just their version of customer service. Food was really good, reasonable prices. It's all that really matters.

Suggest those who want to enjoy their time to stay away from thisrestaurant. When we came to have lunch, I was told to wait at least 30 mins. Luckily, I got seats for me and my wife in 5 mins. The waitress didn't clean the table and invited us to sit. I waited another 5 mins. Then, the waitress gave... More

Ate dinner here last night. We didn't have reservations but they squeezed us in as long as we could finish by 8 which wasn't a problem. Food was very good but isn't cheap although not too expensive. They were very friendly.

I stumbled on this little hidden gem as I was exploring Munich on my own and was looking for a light lunch. The interior is dark, cozy, and full of small, beautifully presented collections. I did not venture very deep into the menu - just some weiswurst, a beer and a brotzl, but I was treated as if I had... More

We were attracted to Zum Alten Markt by the gorgeous outdoor tables, set in a cobbled courtyard, sheltered under huge heated umbrellas and blankets provided over the back of chairs. It's a family run restaurant and you can tell by the care and attention to detail. The owner, dressed in Bavarian dress, is a lovely man with a twinkle in... More

Perfect location in the very centre of Munchen. Small but very cosy place with decorations reminding of a hunting lodge. The food is just excellent, maybe a little bit more expensive than overall in the city, but it's definitely worth it. Overall, strongly recommended.

My mother and I weren’t very hungry but we wanted to try this place so we just ordered soups and salads. Everything was delicious. My mother ordered carrot soup and I ordered the white asparagus soup. Then we both ordered a green salad with a very yummy homemade dressing. The salad was very fresh with walnuts, bean sprouts, grapes, tomatoes,... More

Located in a small square just off the Viktualienmarkt the restaurant is quite small but very cosy. The first time we visited the weather was bad so everyone wanted to sit inside, people were queueing out in the square waiting for a table. The staff were pleasant and helpful and the menu offers a good choice of local food, with... More
