Description: A traditional institution at Max-Joseph-Platz, in perfect harmony with the Bavarian National Theatre, Residence and Palais an der Oper. The Munich citizen goes to Spatenhaus with his family, and he invites his business partners to our restaurant, for special events. On the ground floor our restaurant leaves a down-to-earth impression, the four rooms on the top floor are more elegant. The restaurant stands for exclusive hospitality and exquisite traditional German cuisine. Old Bavarian dishes enrich the menu card on the ground floor. On the top floor the kitchen crew offers its guests a more differentiated menu, taking individual requirements into account. Exquisite fish cuisine, classic dishes of Bavarian and Austrian cuisine supplement each other, thus catering perfectly for all tastes. If the weather is dry, the terrace on the Residenzstrasse fills rapidly and is a truly wonderful location to experience typical Munich culture until late at night.

“The best place to have Pork Knuckle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

This is the best place to have German food.
The price is high but the food quality makes it well worht it.
We ate here 4 times during our stay in Munich and were never dissapionted, I had the pork knuckle most times or the bratwurst, all were the best.
The first visit I had the pork knuckle when a group of Germans where seated at the next table, they loved the smell and inquired with the server what it was, four of themended up having it.
The desserts are good too

Dear "tripbugbc1", thank you very much for writing your friendly review. If you come back to munich, you may want to try our restaurant "Haxnbauer". It is located very close to the Spatenhaus and is specialized on knuckles. I am sure you will love it.
Best wishes from the Spatenhaus an der Oper in Munich

“Great Bavarian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

My wife and I only had 1 night in Munich (we'll definitely be returning) and our hotel concierge recommended this restaurant as being good standard bavarian food within a very short walk of the hotel, he wasn't wrong!

Great location opposite the Opera House, our first impression was that maybe it was a little too touristy! Maybe it was, but not too much. We ate upstairs where the feel was a little more formal than downstairs but everyone seemed to be enjoying the atmosphere.

The food was very good and came in huge portions, the staff were friendly and efficient and happy to advise on food and wine choices.

Well worth a visit, but arrive hungry!

“Bavarian food served to a high standard”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Bavarian food may strike the average punter as fairly straightforward so if a restaurant is to stand it must have some special highlights. Spatenhaus food is delicious and in my opinion their ingredients and fresh preparation must be the reason. We walked of the street and got seated in a relaxed room. The service was speedy. Prices a little on the high side but this is down to its location I guess. It gets 5 points because their potato and cucumber salad was the best I tasted in Munich.
