“Total rip-off”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Coming from Switzerland, we're used to expensive drinks. But at 8.50 Euro for 250 ml of unexceptional Riesling, or 3.00 Euro for a glass of tap water with ice (to name only two non-beer items we had), this is scandalous. Admittedly the location is unbeatable, with outside seating directly in front of the Rathaus, but I would advise anyone to stick to beer and look at the prices before you do. Service is not particularly friendly or effective either.

“Dont let the location fool you”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

This is a typical tourist-trap. Bad uninspired food, lazy and roud waiters and an overall bad experience. The food was extremely overpriced - and you should instead visit a restaurant in the back streets.

“Great view, and LOVE Hacker-Pschorr Dunkle Weiss!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Went here specifically because they had the Hacker-Pschorr Dunkle Weiss beer here - if you haven't tried this beer, you MUST! It's a dark hefeweissen and it's soooo hard to find!

The food is nothing special, you just go to sit and watch the Glockenspiel - which we did.

“Simple meals in a great location”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

I arrived late into Munich and dropped into Cafe am Marienplatz for the traditional white sausages and a wheat beer. Both were good with the sausages accompanied by sauerkraut, potato salad and a slice of meatloaf with mustard. I sat inside the relatively small cafe but imagine having lunch outside on a sunny day would be a totally different experience. The service was good but a little tired as the staff were nearing the end of their shift. Overall a nice place for a beer and simple meal as you look out over Marienplatz.

“Good location, food and service”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Right in the center of Munich’s famous Marienplatz is Café Am Marienplatz, with both indoor and plenty of outdoor seating and it doesn’t have that “touristy” feel, or price. Our waiter was very friendly and spoke English.

We ordered two very unique items that we’ve never had before: the Bavarian white sausage and German meatloaf with a fried egg. I can tell you these were very good, but have no comparison point.

That said, our waiter was kind enough to tell us that the white sausage is different than regular sausage, in that you have to take the skin off the sausage before you can eat it. These are very unique to Bavaria, so definitely give them a try if you’re visiting the region.
