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.

Very interesting restaurant with different dining rooms for any occasion. Visited both by tourists and locals. Try the first floor to have a lunch and the second for a dinner dinner. Right in the very city center, next to the Opera House. Definitely try the local beer and assorted Bavarian specialties such as special pink cream cheese with radish and... More

We went here for dinner after attending a ballet performance at the National Theater, which is just a few steps away. This restaurant was recommended by our hotel, and we were not disappointed. Service was efficient and attentive and the food was delicious. We (family of 5) all had different dishes, and we all enjoyed the taste and the quality... More

We were in Munich for a week on a holiday trip last Christmas and stopped by this wonderful place in the search of some real schwineaxe. I had half of one, with the sourkraut and potatoes dumplings. Order some extra potatoes salad also. Meal was superb, service excellent and prices were fair. Had some Spaten beer von Vass. Great.

We finally made it here after several visits to Munich and were quite happy with our experience. I had always assumed that this would be an over-priced tourist venue because it is located in front of the National Theater and perhaps that is true if you're dining on the outdoor plaza or the ground-floor dining rooms. But, we made a... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Munich. The food is amazing, and if the weather is nice, sitting outside is so special. You are looking towards the Opera House, and it's fun to watch all of the people. Inside is great too, it is a very traditional German restaurant with pine tables and wonderful service. I'm... More

Everything was excellent! We were thinking this was more touristy so the food was going to be average. Not really; the cream of mushroom, the salads, the sausages.....the duck. This is the best duck; very tasty and tender. We also have dessert (KAISERSCHMARR ́N) So good!!! The service was outstanding. Strongly recommended.

Based on a recommendation from a nearby shop rep. four of us ate here for lunch and found it to be more than the usual Bavarian restaurant. More genteel, quiet (but not that quiet), and still with the usual suspects Re the menu. Our meals were quite good and the service was friendly, but a little hit or miss (the... More

Very typical Bavarian food but of higher quality and higher sophistication compared to regular taditional restaurants. The room is nice with small niches for groups. Service is also good.

We ate downstairs which is a very nice restaurant. Upstairs is reportedly more haute cuisine but we thought this was lovely without being stuffy. The service was terrific and friendly. The veal goulash and apple strudel was outstanding. It was our last night in Munich and our best.
