“Cafe in the center.”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

A very good cafe in the city center. Located just on Marienplatz. Cafe offers lots of exclusive bavarian drinks, snacks and dishes. The prices are moderate, the quality is good, service is at high level.

“Perfect View, excellent Beer, eat somewhere else”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

After doing the Christmas market (Weihnachts Markt) we stopped in for a good German beer as this Cafe is directly in the Action Zone of the Christmas Market. It was nice to get warm again and the Weiß Beer was excellent. Another great Thing was that we had ideal seating for seeing the lively comings and goings at the Christmas Market right before us. I know this Cafe from previous visits and recommended my companions that we only enjoy a beer here as there are much better places to eat in Munich. all in all this was a delightful exsperience and I recommend it as a good break after Shopping or sight seeing.

“Tourist trap!”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Service was very weird. They didn't have any spots left so in a small rounded table for one person where a lady sat down already they just pushed me in with her. Awkward cannot describe it. Then we go to the main thing - the food. Well, took the Munchner Schmankerlplatte, which supposed to be the classic bavarian dish. it was okay, but for that price I expected much more. Plus 4.5 euro for 400ml Cola?!
Just ridiculous. For that price you can do so much better in Munich.

“Terrible Service”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

On our last day at Munich, originally we wanted to go to Ratskeller but they are fully booked. So we decided to come to Cafe am Marienplatz for a quick dinner so we can head back to the hotel early to pack. When we first came in, it looks like is pretty busy on a Friday night. While we were waiting, my husband got pushed by one of the waitress as she thinks that we are blocking her way. Then, we were asked if we could share a table with a lady (who was alone but was seated a 4 person table). After some thoughts, we decided to go ahead as we wanted to head back to hotel as early as possible. At first, the server was already kinda rude when he took our order. In the middle of our meal, the lady next to us was asking for the bill (since she came earlier and for sure will finish before us). Our server gave her the bill but also gave us our bill while we were just starting to eat. My husband asked him whether he wanted us to pay now or what. I'm not sure if it's because his english wasn't good or what but his body language was basically asking us to pay and wanted us to sit outside so this table can be given to somebody else. Given it was october time and it was below 0 degrees that night, we didn't want to sit outside. He was mad at us and just walked out from the restaurant and never come back to us again. So we decided to finish our meal early and leave the money on the table without any tips at all. The service was absolutely horrible! Don't ever go to this restaurant!!

“Great people watching!”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Sitting outside watching the world go by was brilliant. This cafe is in the main square opposite the Glockenspiel and a great place to sit and while away a couple of hours. Reasonably priced for the location, but can't comment on the food as only had a drink.
