Thoroughly enjoyed warming up here over a delightful lunch of weiner schnitzel and beer. The food was delicious, from salad and potatoes to schnitzel. We had a great spot by the window.

The Viking Var was unable to dock at Passau, so we were bussed in from Regensburg. Since we couldn't go back to the ship for lunch, Viking Var had lunch for us at Heilig-Geist-Stift-Schenke (the Holy Ghost). After the concert at St. Stephen's cathedral, our Cruise Director Tanya walked us to the restaurant where we had a fixed menu, and... More

We ate at this restaurant as part of our river cruise, so the menu was fixed. The restaurant served dumpling soup, roast pork, broccoli, and spaetzlel. Dessert was warm berries and ice cream. Overall it was very good.

This charming beer house is decorated in the traditional Germany style. Located in the old town of Passau, it offered a full menu of authentic German cuisine. We had a very enjoyable meal and a wonderful time.

We had lunch here as part of a large group which had been fitted in at short notice, and I had the impression this is something they're used to. Certainly the ambience was good (out in the courtyard, natural shade) and the food was interesting and pleasant (it was very Bavarian i.e. not really for dieters or vegetarians). Service was...

Went with some friends to this authentic Bavarian restaurant. Service was very good. Waiter was attentive and was eager to offer suggestions. Ordered the following dishes (all good);venison, boiled beef, pike-perch, boiled beef, weiner schnitzel. Good local beer selection. Ate inside but the outside seating location looked better.
