“Great atmosphete + Ox Steak mit rissoto+ Beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

We stayed at Novotel Muchen City. On our first day we went here because we were beaten after our self guided bike rides in Munich. After a bit of rest at our hotel we cross a small river in front of Novotel and found thia gem. The waitress handed us an english menu. For dinner I had ox steak with rissoto, my wife had bavarian duck with a veraion of sourkraut and my daughter had a pasta filled with ricotta and spinach. All of us loved it except that we found the german potato dumpling a bit strange for our palate but we munched half of it. I recommend this place for anyone looking for place to chill, have lunch, dinner, good laugh with friends and family. Cheers

“Friendly and reliable Wirtshaus.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Wirtshaus in der Au is a traditional looking, but quite recently renovated restaurant, in a very beautiful Bavarian style building, in the "other side" of the Isar river. In the summer one can sit outside under huge trees and almost forget that one is in a big city. Service is friendly and food is very good, portions are mostly large enough. Unfortunately the prices here are slightly higher than average. Not a big deal but a bit disappointing, though. A classic place.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Due to the language barrier I accidently ordered a cold platter, which would have been nice if sharing with others as a starter, but was a poor choice for a main. My partners meal was delicious, however, so I stole a bit of his. The staff were nice enough, though at the end of the meal as we were paying the waitress asked us outright "so how much do you want to tip?", which was really awkward as in Australia we don't tip (unless exceptional service) and no one else during our trip to Europe had asked us to tip, so we really weren't sure how much we were meant to tip.

I love that this restaurant is pet friendly though. A woman came in with her adorable pug and we were lucky enough to share a table with her. The waitress even brought out a bowl of water and some snacks for the dog. It was adorable.

“Great food and beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

We had a mixed starter followed by a mixed main course. Although there were seven of us we only ordered food for four and we still had lots left over!
Lots of traditional Bavarian dishes. I'm not an expert but it seemed to consist of alot of meat (ham, sausage, pork, chicken) plus dumplings, bread, soft and hard cheeses, sauerkraut, pretzels and bread.
Great atmosphere too.

“Very Busy Erratic Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

You know when you have to wait or ask for a beer in Germany and you were looking forward to such, a bubble has surely been burst....the food was good although they a had run out of Pork Knuckle- come on! This place probably shines when it is not busy- if it is I would choose someplace else....
