Nothing Special

As a group of 8 trying to find somewhere to eat on a Friday night we stumbled upon this restaurant. We seem to get luck and get a table. Food was ok and the service was friendly. Not great veggie options but the meat eaters in the group seemed happy enough. The wine was nice and reasonably priced.

I have been last week-end in this restaurant because i thought it was a pretty place. We have eaten normally and prices were higher than in other places of munich. But we didn,t like the behaviour of the waiter who came to tell us news about the restaurant that we did not care, just to seem polite and earn a... More

We came by this establishment by chance and enjoyed a great lunch. The staff was a bit busy, but we were still served in a timely fashion and we liked the smaller rooms than other similar restaurants offer. The décor was a bit dated, but that just adds to the charm.

Housed in one of the oldest maintained merchant estates in Munich, the Hofer offers attentive service and reasonable prices for tasty traditional Bavarian food. The mystery of the lovely and eclectic assortment of dining room settings available here is solved by the building's original function. It was built around the 13th century to be used as city dwellings for various... More

After a long walk around Munich on a cold Sunday, when almost everywhere was closed, this place was a welcome sight. We wandered in by chance and were glad that we did. All we wanted was a rest, a beer and to get warm. We also got a warm welcome from friendly staff in a lovely little restaurant. If I... More

Traditional Bavarian food right in the city center. Average prices and great weekly specials. Friendly staff. It was hard to pick from the menu as it all sound so delicious!! We had "Leberkäs" and "Hirschkalbsragout" for main course and apple strudel for dessert! Yum, yum!! The interior was a little dated but maybe just "traditional".

Warm and welcoming restaurant- we had the goulash soup to start- excellent! You can order a larger portion as a main and that would be delightful too. We both chose the venison ragout with dumplings from the excellent seasonal menu and again it was delicious! The prices include the tax but service was additional, but even so at €55 for... More

We stumbled into the Hofer during a thunderstorm. What a pleasant surprise. The charming beer garden inside had a retractable roof that they closed just enough to keep the rain out, The service and food was incredible. Mostly a local crowd, but we felt so welcome here. One of our favorite dining experiences in Munich. I highly recommend it.

Off the main plaza in Munich. A friend recommended this place and it was very good. Nice restaurant and beer garden off the beaten path. Great prices and very good service. I had the stuffed cabbage and it was very good. Owned by the same family for three generations.

Hofer's is off the main street area in Munich but the atmosphere and food were well worth finding. We ate in the upstairs room for an early dinner - waiter was cordial and friendly , food was delicious - strudel with ice cream and whipped cream topped it all off!!!
