Traditional German Fare and Bier

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

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.

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.

Went to the restaurant during fair time. Extremely busy but managed to get a seat at the bar for two. We ordered a shared mixed meat platter with different sausages,pork leg,ham steak,hamburgers plus fried potatoes and sauerkraut. Very happy with food and size. Good service considering how busy they were. Nothing fancy but good hearty food and beer.

If your kind of place is the one with old wooden floors and rustic tables with good basic food then the Bavarium is for you. If want something fancier then there are many other newer restaurants in the area. I visited multiple times as the beer was good (this is Germany) and the food style (basic Bavarian) works for me....

This restaurant is fine if you are looking for a typical tourist place with a cut down menu for anyone that doesn't read or speak German. I had the BBQ Ribs (spare ribs) which were dry, chewy and not very hot when they were served. They also come with a side pot of ketchup which was a little strange.

Grabbed late dinner while in town for business meetings. Food and beer were traditional Bavarian items and were very good.
