This restaurant is an absolute must if you are after a special meal, but make sure you make a reservation. The restaurant was very busy for a Sunday evening, which was a good sign. The menu is very extensive, with a daily special menu of five courses, which three of our group chose. The courses were just the right size,... More

We were lucky to get a reservation the same day on short notice and had a chance to sit next to the kitchen. In this buidling from 1433 we were able to watch how the food was prepared and enjoyed a variety from lamb, cows and deer. To sum it up, it was a reasonable price for real good food!... More

Staying in Bad Hindelang, we have enjoyed exploring the local restaurants and decided to try Obere Muhle. What a pleasure to walk to the restaurant, through fields and by a small steam. Not sure of what we would find, the restaurant is housed in a truly enchanting old farmhouse bedecked with geraniums and surrounded by a beautiful garden. There is... More

The Obere Muhle is an extremely interesting old farmhouse with an attached museum, antiques shop and cheese/dairy outlet but did not live up to its reputation the night we visited. The restaurant is an interesting old building which retains a great deal of cultural charm but we were disappointed with the service and the food. Service: Lacked the attentiveness that... More

We've been returning to this family run restaurant for over 20 years and it's always a highlight of our visiting the Allgau! The resto is in an 415yo farmhouse next to the river with a still functioning mill wheel and if you like antiques, you must visit their antiqueladen. They also produce and sell wonderful cheeses here. I know, it... More

Thank you TripAdvisor friends for an excellent recommendation. This restaurant is worthy not only of the top spot in Bad Hindelang, but also of a leading position in Bavaria overall. To give you the brief version, we ate there in the two evenings we ate in Bad Hindelang, but we would have hapily eaten there until we exhausted the menu... More

We had a lovely evening here. The casual wooden tables were set with crisp white linens and placed in the lawn amidst fruit trees, with the atmosphere of an upscale picnic. Our food was outstanding, and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful.

We visited this hidden gem on our last night and very nearly missed it, it's not the easiest restaurant to find but well worth the effort to find, we didnt book and thought we would be turned away as every table was taken at 7.30 on a sunday evening, worth booking just in case. They confirmed a table would be... More

We have often enjoyed a suberb evening here with excellent food and service. The house has character and they have recently built a small exquisite hotel next door. In summer you can eat in the garden and in winter the cosy atmosphere of the restaurant takes some beating. The family who owns and runs this fine house are dedicated, so... More
