Description: A traditional institution at Max-Joseph-Platz, in perfect harmony with the Bavarian National Theatre, Residence and Palais an der Oper. The Munich citizen goes to Spatenhaus with his family, and he invites his business partners to our restaurant, for special events. On the ground floor our restaurant leaves a down-to-earth impression, the four rooms on the top floor are more elegant. The restaurant stands for exclusive hospitality and exquisite traditional German cuisine. Old Bavarian dishes enrich the menu card on the ground floor. On the top floor the kitchen crew offers its guests a more differentiated menu, taking individual requirements into account. Exquisite fish cuisine, classic dishes of Bavarian and Austrian cuisine supplement each other, thus catering perfectly for all tastes. If the weather is dry, the terrace on the Residenzstrasse fills rapidly and is a truly wonderful location to experience typical Munich culture until late at night.

Before we walked in we expected just another typical Bavarian restaurant. This one is a few notches up from most. While it still has communal seating, the food is high end-as is the cost or your meal. It's worth the price. We were here for lunch and many business lunches were taking place around us. The portions served are very... More

The great thing about Munich is that you can find so many truly authentic restaurants. The locals have vigorously preserved their culinary culture which has resulted in countless fantastic Bayerische haunts. Spatenhaus is well-known and sits right in the middle of the old town, close to all great attractions. Their menu is solid and each meal is delicious. They also... More

You can't beat Spatenhaus for dinner pre-opera. Right across the plaza, great Bavarian food, efficient service and plenty of beer options. If your hotel has a concierge, see if they can reserve you a table upstairs, and book as soon as possible as this a very popular choice, especially if there is a performance at the Staatsoper.

I went here for a business dinner with 10 people. As a starter we had an appetizer served on a giant piece of wood with Bavarian meat specialties. As a main course I had the Wiener Schnitzel which was unbelievable - the meat was so soft and juicy! Served with grilled mashed potatoes and a fresh cucumber salad. As desert... More

Ate here twice during our stay in Munich, had wonderful meals both times. Had some of the best and most interesting potato soup the first time. The second time the food was again good, and the folks at the table next to us recommended the plum cobbler as it was in season--an excellent choice. Service was very good. Glad we... More

The restaurant has plenty of seating, but you must have to do something special to be seated upstairs, which would have been our choice, but we were seated downstairs. Our server accommodated our request for English menus, was polite, and almost too efficient, as our food arrived quickly, Regardless, it was an excellent choice thanks to our hotel's recommendation.

It's amazing how much better Spaten tastes at the Spatenhaus. This is a little nicer than some of the other beer halls in terms of decor, bathrooms, food, etc. We visited the Christmas markets and the Spatenhaus was a warm, welcome relief from the cold. I ordered the Veal Brats and they were excellent. My friend had the boiled beef... More

I have been at this Bavarian Restaurant several times before and was always satisfied. However, this time the waiter was so impolite when we asked for a table, that we decided to leave immediately. Hence my comments about most are related to previous visits!!

Dear Otto B, thank you very much for your feedback. We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused by what sounds like a very unprofessional behavior of a waiter at the door. During Christmas season we are booked out quite often and also have many people walk in for a meal. This is no excuse, but may explain how this... More

This is an institution in Munich. I ate here as part of a large party. The atmosphere was excellent and the food very good. If you like duck, venison, pork or sausage then this is the place for you, with large portions of well cooked food. The house wines are good. The restaurant is on many floors and in many... More
