We came here for the Bavarian sausages & pretzels. Both were great but the service was so so. We had to wait for our table and yet many of the tables were not occupied. Also it took a long time for the waitress to come to take our order. If you are in a hurry, this is not a place... More

This was a very nice place to visit and watch as many touring people come and go. We had a meal on the river side.

Good choice of Bavarian food; very well prepared, and that for a reasonable price! Nice terrace, located near the bridge to the castel. Value for money!

If we had to rate this restaurant on beer alone, it would have had high marks...food is typical Bavarian food..the staff (2)were not friendly at all and noticed they were like that with all tables, also be sure to bring cash..they did not accept credit cards.

Typical Bavarian food, but done well. Most of the staff is very friendly, but some are a little cranky. The location is good to hang out since it's in the middle of things and lots of action (for Passau anyway), and they have some good beer choices.

This was our first meal in Bavarian meal. If you like beer it is good but if you prefer wine then this is not the place for you. There is a nice atmosphere with friendly service the food is basic pub food with generous servings. We had an enjoyable evening here.

We had lunch here on a recommendation from a friend. They serve local beer - Arcobrau - along with traditional German food. The restaurant was very busy and we were lucky to get a table. The servers speak English and there are also English menus. We had bratwurst with sauerkraut and schnitzel with potato salad. Both dishes were delicious and... More

Growing up in a half German and half Hungarian household, this was a real treat for me. Excellent traditional Bavarian dishes, the Lieberkase is to die for as well as the liver and dumpling soup. Pup like atmosphere, excellent draft beer, and very good service. A nice extensive menu is offered. A great place to stop for lunch or dinner,... More
