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!
