Good basic food

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... read more

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.

Nice German atmosphere..the bar, the beer mugs and the Schnitzel. Would have preferred veal, but the pork schnitzel was nice and tender. The waitress did not understand my American pronunciation of "Lowenbrau" but did understand "bier".

Usually is necessary to make reservation in order to secure a table. The service is good and fast and the quality of food more than the average. Very nice atmosphere and there are spaces for groups.

Nice place to soak up the german tavern ambience and to get some nice food. Though I am not an expert on german food, the pork knuckles ordered was crispy on the outside and moist inside. The half chicken was juicy and even the breast meat was not tough. The apple strudel was not sweet and paired with the vanilla... More

When I had a bad experience here the first time, I thought it was just an off day. When it happened again with another set of staff, then it is a chronic problem. Although speaking fluent German, the invite to "sit where you want" and then being scolded if one sits at a table that is reserved (75 minutes later,... More
