“Worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Spaetzel was outstanding. Venison was tasty but a touch dry as was the roasted pork. Portions were substantial. Real local place in the best sense. We appeared to be the only non-Germans and the restaurant was busy. Staff was very attentive and helpful. House wine very tasty.

“The Real Thing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

A charming and unpretentious place with copious portions of classic German food. Schnitzel, tafelspitz (boiled beef)' grilled local trout, all good. Nice wine list, lovely service, full of happy, well-fed people.

“restaurant with garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

We ate in the garden in an inner courtyard. The tables were in groups of about 8 tables, with hedge walls separating them. there were many sections. Our table was well shaded at dinner time. We thought the food was excellent and the Stift's wine was very good at a reasonable price. Unfortunately, smoking was not limited in the garden. This is a good choice for a serious dinner.

“Big tasty meals.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

Passing by early evening and the entrance looked quaintly interesting, so we popped inside. It was bustling - noisy and smokey! However, on asking, a table for two was found in a quieter room with other quieter diners, away from the smoke and bustle of the main bar area.

An English menu was offered making choices considerably easier, drinks and two excellent meals arrived soon after - very large servings! By some odd coincidence, the only other English speakers were at an adjacent table and from our own small hometown half a world away! It was obviously a very popular pub/restaurant with locals too, even in a regular Tuesday night.

“Overpriced-slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

Made reservation online on their website..when we arrived no record

Food was mediocre and overpriced for what ate...had the specials
We had just arrived in Passau and went to get dinner....afterwards took dog for a walk and saw at least 1/2 dozen places to eat where the food on the plates looked much better

Nice beer garten, well layed out for distances and shrubs for privacy

Chairs could have been a bit more comfy
