We went here after the opera, the Spatenhaus being across the square from the Nationaltheater. The second-floor restaurant is more elegant than the bierstube on the ground floor. Normally we would have been there with a crowd, but as Germany was playing Brazil at 10, only 4 or 5 tables were occupied. The service was therefore just great, complete with... More

The service and food were both very good. The red cabbage is excellent, don't miss it. Traditional appetizer plates, pretzels, beer, meatball soup, dumplings, excellent roasted duck and red cabbage. Nice atmosphere.

The food is a little expensive, but I liked the traditional German experience, and it is less hectic and quieter than the Hofbrauhaus nearby. The service was good, and the food was delicious. Beware that you have to pay for the pretzels they set down on the table, as they would set down bread at an Italian restaurant.

We wandered in whilst out strolling in the centre,and the place was almost full. The group of 3 in front of us were knocked back, but we rolled the dice, and got a table for two. "Only for two hours", we were told, but that was fine by us. We ordered a mozzarella &tomato starter and shared it without feeling... More

The oversized portions of traditional Bavarian fare are of excellent, even outstanding quality. The venue is beautiful, authentic and in mint condition as far as furnishings, decor, etc. are concerned. Choice of food and drink excellent, service friendly, impeccable. The downturn ?

Dear "Hongkon", thank you very much for taking your time to write these friendly words on TripAdvisor. Concerning the "climate", we have the problem that open doors and windows sometimes disable the functionality of the cooling system. This is only a problem, when our restaurant is very crowded and the outside temperatures are high. Most guests love to sit close... More

Our reservation for the first night was for upstairs, which was supposedly more formal than downstairs, as it had white tablecloths. We had spargelsuppe , then wiener schnitzel (very good) and suckling pig, which my husband liked better than I did. We were downstairs the second night - we began with delicious matjes herring (more like Dutch herring than the... More

This should be viewed as more of a convenience restaurant. It's right across from Stadtsoper and is definitely good for a drink or a bite to eat before or after the opera. The service can vary widely, sometimes great sometimes lackluster. Food is typical Bavarian.

As others have mentioned, expect very hearty traditional Bavarian fare. Service is very good and the staff are friendly and full of good recommendations. If you choose to eat outdoors, the view of the opera house is excellent. Prices are in-line for the area which is to say they're a bit high, but the tourist-factor is in full effect in... More

We went to the upstairs "gourmet dining" part of the restaurant on our one night in Munich. It was Whitmonday and we were glad to find a place that was open. The upstairs is a very nice, white-tablecloth restaurant with a great view of the Opera. Downstairs seems to be more popular--it was packed on a 90-degree evening. The food... More

You are in Bavaria and that's how we eat, seems to be the message of this restaurant. The food taste great but if you don't love a piece of meat or a rich cream sauce this is not the place for you. I chose a vegetarian option an was amazed how heavy it was. If you plan to not go... More
