I happen to visit this place with my colleagues on weekdays and the ambience and the service was good, some of the waitresses speak English and they also have menu cards in English if you don't speak German like me.

The Hofbraukeller on Wiener Platz is a fine Bavarian beer hall and garden. The food is, as expected, traditional Bavarian fare and done quite well The beer is wonderful and I was lucky enough to be there for this year's maibock...an especially good brew. What sets this place apart is its authenticity. Not focussed on tourists and catering to hungry... More

We spent a couple of hours on our first afternoon in Munich at the Hofbraukeller Beer Garden and it was a wonderful introduction to the city. The atmosphere was very special - large old chestnut trees providing shade on a beautiful sunny day. The service was friendly and the of course the beer was great!

The food is Bavarian, good but not outstanding. The portion are big and the price is fair. The beergarden is shady and nice, the service though is most of the times slow. I would go there on sunny days only, the restaurant itself is very dark.

Busy Saturday night so had to share a big table, initially unsure abut this, but food and environment so good it did not matter. The beer was excellent. We both had duck, I wanted mine served with spatzle instead of potato dumpling and that was no problem. We have been to Several of the big beer halls in the city... More

Visited on a nice sunny afternoon, managed to find a table and had a few weissbier and some ribs to eat. Exactly as I expected, simple good tasting food, reasonably priced. Recommended place to spend a few hours chatting with friends over a bite to eat and a few drinks.

I went there exactly one year ago with 4 friends during a visit to a common friend called Orso (very famous in Munich to be a "mangiamussa"). Coming to the restaurant, it's off of the tourist map but very easy to reach. It offers an authentic Bavarian meal. We were warmly welcomed, and sat at a nice wooden table. The... More

Superb service, place is nice inside and outside. They also have child minders and play areas. Great food and great bier. The family also runs the famous Hofbraü tent at the Oktoberfest.
