The Stiftschenke has a lovely interior and a pergola outside that is inviting on a sunny summer day. That is where we had our luncheon. The food ranges from very good to the average food one can expect in German restaurants of this type. Our favorite: a deftly seared Wienerschnitzel with fried potatoes. The Spanferkel (suckling pig) was fine, if... More

Nice place, with also nice atendants with spetacular bavarian food. Good variety (vegetables, meat, fish, soup) and beers from the local producer. If you are luck, there will be fresh marmelade so you can take away a good example of the good bavarian cuisine.

We went to the restaurant as an add on with the Hotel Residenz. At first, we didn't think too much of it as it is very unassuming from the outside. But having gone in, we found a wonderful, terraced garden which was even better in the summer warmth. The food was at a high standard, but was also very traditional... More

Based upon the TripAdvisor reviews (and our preliminary walk thru of the restaurant during the day), we had dinner. It was a disaster. Although we had a reservation, we were teated like silly tourists who would accept seating anywhere. We chose what are considered traditional Bavarian dishes - rostbraten and forelle. It was probably the worse food we had eaten... More

This was our first dining experience in Germany on a two-week visit and what a wonderful meal we had. The restaurant is an old family operation, very Bavarian, and housed in a 14th century monastery. The interior rooms are warm and cozy, and there is a beautiful garden out back for summer dining. The food is authentic Bavarian, with a... More

The food was excellent and the service superb. The building itself was also interesting (I noticed some old glass in the windows).

This restaurant was recommended by the front desk staff at Hotel Weiser Hase -- one quick step across a cobblestone lane away. I am so pleased to be able to add to the many good reviews! We liked it so much the first night that we decided to return on our second and final night in Passau. My husband had... More

A 14th century monastery turned to wine cellar. Warm environment, typical Bavarian furniture. Many different rooms with special decoration and Bavarian features. Very good and quick service. Friendly smiling people. Reasonable prices. Excellent food. Generous portions. And...good, first quality local draft beer. The beer garden is very inviting and there is a fish tank for those who want to choose... More

That is what we love about this restaurant each time we visit Bavaria. In the summer time we sat outside in the garden and enjoyed dinner and the ambiance. In the winter the indoor setting is cozy and you literally feel the history surrounding this eatery. We have never been disappointed with lunch or dinner when we were there. I... More

Spend a nice evening in this lovely restaurant. It is located in a very old building and has tons of atmosphere. The food is typically Bavarian, but with an extra fine toch. Service is fast and pleasant.
