We went in Zum Durnbrau during Oktoberfest season. The restaurant is just off the main street. The outside of the restaurant is very inviting in the evening with the fairy lights hanging by the terrace. The inside was no disappointment either: a typical German setting with one long table in the middle and several smaller slots along it. A lot of noise, as there should be on a crowded evening.
We were there for the traditional experience, so I had the potato soup while my husband chose a bread soup. Before the soups arrived, we had bretzels on the table to munch on with beer. The soups were delicious, but filled us up before the main course.
As main course I had a mixed sausage platter, and my husband chose the Nurnberger sausages, both with sauerkraut, fried potatoes and mustard. The sausages were good, but not mind-blowing. I think I enjoyed the sauerkraut most!
The service was speedy and friendly, despite of the restaurant being totally packed due to high season. The waitresses spoke English well, and knew how to guide us through their menu.
If you want the traditional experience, including the high noise levels and no-so-romantic atmosphere, I recommend Zum Durnbrau. The best way to enjoy the restaurant is to go with a group of friends to have beer, rustic food and a laugh!

My wife and I greatly enjoyed five evenings at Zum Durnbrau during a recent trip to Munich. In addition to fine Bavarian appetizers, soups,and entrees and good German and Austrian wines, we loved the Kaiserschmarrn - a sublime dessert as prepared at the Zum Durnbrau.

The staff made each of our visits memorable - really nice people who provided terrific service and good advice about enjoying Munich.

The restaurant is charming - fine outdoor seating and an inviting traditional Bavarian dining room.

We look forward to returning.

We were looking for a dinner spot after a few beers and this was a very inviting place on a chilly winter night. It was packed but we were seated promptly and the service and food were just about perfect. If you are looking for value and atmosphere give this a try. You won't be disappointed!

Was looking for a traditional German/Bavarian restaurant and found just that in a quiet side street. First time Schweinshaxe (pork knuckle) was excellent, great beer to wash it down with. Service very personable and pleasant.

Clearly a tourist trap, 3.5 minutes from order to duck was on the table.only microwave can do that.Ask for water and you get overpriced bottle water, overpriced wine, and get charged for bread you did not order. Try KFC down the road instead, at least you get freshly made food an what you pay for
