I ate here after a strenuous mountain hike. The ambience was pleasant and the service remarkably fast. My waitress was not only super efficient but also amusing. I ate Sauerbraten ( slowly marinated beef served with a red sauce) and drank a local beer on...More

This place does not boast extremely good food, but it was all okay. The service was friendly. Especially that the cook came out to greet (although he needed to smoke). Just a comfortable place to have some ordinary food. I took the Edelweiss schnitzel, but...More

Food is good and reasonable price. I have the goulash soup and the white sausage. Both are excellent . And you cannot ask for a better service .

Beautiful small restaurant with home made cakes and “Kaiserschmarren” just across the beautiful Abbey and Monastery overlooking the Bavarian Alps. Get a nice beer and “brezn” or choose one from the home-made desserts, sit outside and enjoy the sun shining into your face. Fabulous!
