It is directly in front of the Glockenspiel at Marienplatz, very easy to find. Therefore, it is more expensive than nearby restaurants with the same kind of food. Avoid the non-typical food, it is just ok. I suggest ordering the typical meats platter, which comes with Leberkäse (typical baked "sausage", kind of), pork meat, sausages and sauerkraut. Try the different... More

The whole inside space was empty when we arrived and still the staff acted really busy and rude. We came with a small group and sat down. Before ordering we realized that the chairs were uncomfortable so we decided to sit to another table with more space to eat. (remember empty restaurant) They were impatient and acted like us changing... More

If you enjoy being in typical tourist traps, then look no further. Easy to find, direct on Marienplatz, it's one of those places locals walk by a million times but never bother to go in. For good reason too. We ended up there when a disorganised friend booked a table there for a girls evening. Started ok at 6pm. Was... More

Everything started off great. Was in a great location, our server was wonderful, and the drinks refreshing. We ordered a flat bread pizza, tuna salad, and steak burger. Oh where to start. The salad itself was pretty good with can tuna on top. The pizza was inspired by the great Chef Boyardee with chewy crust and bland flavor. The steak... More

You couldn't really be more centrally located in Munich, and it's great to sit outside and watch the city go by. For a place so centrally located, I actually thought the prices were quite reasonable - especially when you compare to other major European cities. The curried Bratwurst was very good - but one inexcusable thing - our food came... More

This is a great place to eat, drink and people watch. The location is directly across from the Ratthaus. Beer was priced well and was good. They have a great local "Radler" that is awesome. Food was super. They offer Kasespatzle which I haven't had since I was a kid and it was fantastic. Cash only here so be prepared... More

Well-located for Rathaus across the square - food ok, beer priced accordingly. You'll pay more if you choose to sit outside. Be aware that they only take cash (not uncommon in Bavaria)

No doubt a strategically located diner but the overall experience was short of extraordinary. We hopped in for a drink after shopping nearby, but was treated like unwelcome guests and was short of being ushered away to make room for other customers.

Right on Marienplatz overlooking the square...many people walk right by this place and don't even know it's there! Drop in for a snack or a meal...both are great.
