Exactly what you'd expect a Bavarian restaurant to be

We didn't book and although it was busy there were plenty of tables. Unfortunately, it was a warm evening and we chose to sit outside - with the smokers! However, the service was efficient, the waitress immediately suggested the English menu which was very helpful and the food was good for... read more

Good place to meet with clients, friends to enjoy Bavarian food in a warm ambience. One of the many nice places in Hannover with consisstent food and service. Their pretsels always first to come on the table, followed by some nice German beer to start, patatoe dishes and schweinen axelns are their specialties. We always enjoy their Goulash. Timely and...

Great beer, perfect pork shanks with crispy crackling and sauerkraut, just what I like to have when I visit Germany, good atmosphere, good service. Sat at the bar.

Excellent place to visit for local food and beer. Good portions. The goulash soup is recommended. If you plan on sitting outside, remember it is a smoking section.

Wonderful meal, not a tourist trap, as it was filled with tourists. The food was reasonably priced, and well portioned. Highly recommend.

Can't be The Bavarium for some traditional fare while in Hannover. Very conveniently located to the main train station and surrounding shopping district. Fun with a large group.

Went there with a group of colleagues. We started with some shared flammkuchen that were nicely thin and tasty. After that, I had some ribs that were OK. Portions are really big, but do not expect something special.

If you are looking for traditional german food, look no further. Everything you expect (wood paneling, sturdy furniture, abundant portions and large quantities of bier) is here. Nice garden outback with pergolas. Around May they have a special

I have eaten at this restaurant twice now and left with a full stomach each time. If you want to eat a typical German fare in typical German surroundings then this is the place to go. If you want a cordon bleu, Michelin star restaurant then give it a miss. An ideal location for a big group of people to... More

This is a place that serves bavarian cuisine. Really good bavarian food. It's fresh and very tasty. Big portions as well so you might consider taking the three course meal. Staff is very friendly and helpful. There's a good choice of bavarian beers as well.
