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.

Good spot in the centre of town. The 'piglet' was excellent. Nice atmosphere inside and the service was pretty good. We had a very enjoyable lunch.

We recently visited Passau on a Danube River Cruise. When the organ concert ended at St Stephens, I knew we had better get away from the throngs exiting the church. Thanks to this site, we headed to this friendly establishment for a fun and comfortable lunch. We dined in the garden, enjoyed great service ,good food and better beer.

Our tour group from our river cruise ship descended on this restaurant for lunch on a hot summer day. We were led back through the restaurant to tables shaded by grape arbors. The soup, schnitzel, spaetzle, and dessert were very good and the staff was efficient and friendly. There were other diners in the garden as well, so don't think... More

We missed spargel season, but were here for yellow mushrooms. We were seated in the garden area on a pleasant early summer night. Our server asked if we spoke German, and when we said not really, she immediately arranged for a server who spoke English. There was an English menu for the general menu, but our server was kind enough... More

From prior experiences I was not expecting to enjoy traditional regional German food. But the food here was exceptional, particularly anything involving pork. Service was very good, friendly to non-German speaking customers. Dining rooms are very old style and beautiful. Highly recommended.

We were here during "spargel" (white asparagas) season (May) and were in teh "cave," which is the lower level of the restaurant. We ate fairly early (7:00pm) and found the cave to be a lovely location, well laid out for the number of tables - quiet enough for 4 people to relate easily and enjoy their time as well as... More
