I had one of the best lunches in Passau. In fact it was my favorite throughout our recent visit to Germany. I had a braised pork dish accompanied by cheese spatzle. The restaurant's atmosphere is cozy and the staff were very helpful in selecting our food. A lot of the river cruises stop in Passau. If you have the time,... More

Based on TripAdviser reviews, we took two other couples to this restaurant and the excellent reviews were totally accurate. Be sure to get a table in the garden, which is lovely and restful. The service is excellent, and they have menus in English, French and other languages. The food is well prepared and the portions are generous. With beer and... More

This place has few rooms! Good for business lunches and great experience of local food. Very good beer and nice dessert! Excellent decoration which brings you back in time, but very cosy! Fresh flowers in the tables and empty plates after eating! So it's delicious!

Took my family to this restaurant to celebrate my mom's 60th. We were pleasantly surprised by the great service and outstanding food. Would recommend to stay in the cellar and this part of the restaurant has an amazing vibe taking you back a few hundred years..

We were staying in Passau. We had very little time there so asked at the hotel for any recommendations. This was top of the list. The staff were friendly and funny. The food was outstanding. Eating outside in the vine covered area was a lovely touch. I would highly recommend anyone visiting to try this place

Excellent food, including fresh fish, venison and pork several different ways. Traditional German cuisine. Lovely outdoor garden divided into "rooms" by the thick arbor. Perfect for teens as there was wide selection. Efficient and charming service. Highly recommend if visiting Passau.

Excellent Bavarian cuisine. First class wine list. Our waitress was delightful. Best of all, our table was screened by tall hedges, as are many on the terrace, giving a feeling of privacy and exclusivity. Very special experience. Don't be fooled by the unassuming exterior of this restaurant, the garden terrace is accessed through the restaurant.

Participating of a conference, the banquet mas held there. We walked our way up to the restaurant, and when we arrived had a couple of cold beers. Excellent. Afterwards, a perfect dinner. The view from the restaurant is breathtaking, with the river and the city.

This restaurant's history goes back to the Middle Age but the current location is in use "only" since the mid 1800s. There are different rooms giving the place a cosy and authentic feel. Each one is equipped with authentic decoration. They have an extensive menu of local specialties (Bavarian/Austrian cuisine) at reasonable prices. Expect solid country cooking and not fine... More
