Someone who worked at the boat tour office recommended this for the best fish dinner. I never eat fish but told my husband if we could find a place with fresh fish out of the lake, I would try it. It was so good that we extended our stay another night so we could go back and have the same... More

We had just arrived in Lindau in the dark, rainy winter evening and drove around the old town until we found a parking space. It happened to be next to this charming restaurant. We walked in and asked for a table, and were told we could have one if we only could eat within an hour, as others had reserved... More

Went with my parents when they came to visit and the food was really good. A little pricey but well worth it. First time therw , I had the fish and then the grill plate. Both were excellent. The jefe weizen is from a town about 40km away, and it is also very good. Again, a little pricey for five... More

Lindau caters to tourists, and has plenty of restaurants, but for excellent food at decent cost go here!

We ate here one evening as a result of looking on Trip Advisor and are pleased to say that it was as good as expected. The menu was interesting, the staff friendly and helpful, our food came promptly and tasted good. Excellent value.

We got a tip for this restaurant from the owner of “our” B&B hotel situated a quarter of mile from Alte Post. Zander Fillet was delicious, so were soups and Bavarian plate. I enjoyed Bavarian beer as well as herrings and Spaetzle. To sum up - very good local cuisine with highly professional service. Good choice for both lunch and... More

Bavarian sausage, German potato salad, and a large dark beer on a warm July afternoon. Perfect. Not cheap at $20/person, but quite tasty. The setting is lovely. The servers friendly. Lindau is a touristy place, but pleasant nonetheless. There are a few tables inside in case the weather is inclement.,

This was our first meal in Germany and we thought it was very good, but as the trip progressed we realized that the food was average in comparison to the rest of our trip. Everything was good and well prepared, but really nothing special. A little pricey for average food.
