We booked by email and they responded immediately which is always a good sign of a well run restaurant. This is a small cosy dining room with traditional decor and very efficient professional wait-staff. We were seated at our table without them needing to check the book as they knew who they were expecting... again another good sign. All the... More

We just expected more from this restaurant because it is also on the Michelin guide. It is a nice restaurant with traditional decor but it is more of a family restaurant. Lots of activity, people talking, and very casual. The food is ok, the wine list is mostly Austrian wines, and the staff is very friendly and attentive. Not a... More

Had booked by email prior to our visit as couldn’t get in on our first years visit. Food is excellent and all the waitresses are very good. Was full both evenings we went there which says something. Definitely recommended.

Lindau is a very nice city. Alte post located on the island in the Altstadt was very impressive. Service was very good. Wine list is limited but sufficient and the one we selected was very good. Green salad and kartoffelsalad was very delicious. Especially I recommend the wiener schnitzel ( veal ) which was very different than the other types... More

My husband & I ate here twice recently during our holiday in Lindau. As in our previous visit last year, the menu was extensive & the food delicious. The staff are efficient and friendly. Would highly recommend. Booking is advisable to avoid disappointment.

Rich card with typical German, Bavarian and Austrian dishes - classic cooking - but that level up that makes it fine cuisine and quite delicious. Very happy we went there. Recommended dessert (of the Tageskarte) was Topfennockerl ...
