“Love this restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We have been to this restaurant many many times. Never disappointed. Food is excellent. Atmosphere is brilliant. Taken many German friends and they have all liked it. Good menu, helpful an friendly. This is not fast food, but well worth a medium wait.

“Generous servings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Schwabinger is a great place to eat when you feel like relaxing with friends. The food is generous, tasty and german. It's a super spot in winter because of all the fire places. In summer you can eat outside in one of the many seating areas. Great for large parties of people.

“Deutschland uber alles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

As a german-south african this is my home away from home, good for a quick takeaway or a full on party, look service is ok, bearing in mind peak times may vary the levels which happens from time to time, it is not fine dining but has an awesome atmoshere, dishes to try kassewors (cheesegrillers) mit spazzle (german pasta) is very addictive and ofcourse Eisbein a definite must. Check out the daily specials as well..... a must have the beer on tap my favorite a the paulaner weisbier.
