We were there with a group of people to watch the worldcup football matches. We sat outside on benches, they had a big screen and the atmosphere was quite nice. But the service was really poor, the prices too high and the food they serve does not get any way near to what you would get in Germany.

I enjoyed my Weisswurst and Weissbier here. The staff were friendly, though I did feel the one waitress was run off her feet that evening. I was on my own and don't tend to go into pubs on my own. But here I felt comfortable. The fast wifi was a bonus. Yes, it is not the cheapest place to eat/drink,... More

Food: the only really good plate was the most expensive on the list (18 euro pp) really good chips (as in the picture). If you choose something else the quality is very poor, chips are better at Mc Donalds!! They charge 2.5 euro for something you don't ask ( coperto?) After drinking 9 litres of beer and a bottle of...

Buongiorno, scriviamo sia in inglese sia in italiano visto che la vostra tavolata era “bilingue”. In primis ci teniamo a sottolineare come sia usanza del locale offrire l’acqua, soprattutto se in bicchiere; questo non avviene specificatamente in caso di clientela particolarmente scortese che sinceramente speriamo di non avere più come ospite; ricordiamo bene la vostra tavolata nonostante siano passati più...

Great spot for a chunk of pork on the bone, potatoes, sauerkraut and a large cold beer! Friendly waitresses and a great atmosphere!

The pub is very expensive. We were eight people, one girl didn't want to drink and they said us that who sits at the table was obliged to buy something, even if there were seven person on eight that were drinking. Very unkind!! Genova is full of better place to go...

Good spot to go if you want to hang out with friends. Genuine bavarian beer and tasty German food. Nothing but the essential.

Compared with German Hofbrauhaus's this ones rubbish. Short measures on the beer, tasteless sausage, and then charged €2.50 coppertto for the pretzels and bread. Not worth the money, you get more food for free in some of the harbor side bars . Save your money and try somewhere else. €30 for two people , Bavarian sausage and chips and one... More
