Description: A traditional institution at Max-Joseph-Platz, in perfect harmony with the Bavarian National Theatre, Residence and Palais an der Oper. The Munich citizen goes to Spatenhaus with his family, and he invites his business partners to our restaurant, for special events. On the ground floor our restaurant leaves a down-to-earth impression, the four rooms on the top floor are more elegant. The restaurant stands for exclusive hospitality and exquisite traditional German cuisine. Old Bavarian dishes enrich the menu card on the ground floor. On the top floor the kitchen crew offers its guests a more differentiated menu, taking individual requirements into account. Exquisite fish cuisine, classic dishes of Bavarian and Austrian cuisine supplement each other, thus catering perfectly for all tastes. If the weather is dry, the terrace on the Residenzstrasse fills rapidly and is a truly wonderful location to experience typical Munich culture until late at night.

“Great Bavarian Food”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

My wife and I only had 1 night in Munich (we'll definitely be returning) and our hotel concierge recommended this restaurant as being good standard bavarian food within a very short walk of the hotel, he wasn't wrong!

Great location opposite the Opera House, our first impression was that maybe it was a little too touristy! Maybe it was, but not too much. We ate upstairs where the feel was a little more formal than downstairs but everyone seemed to be enjoying the atmosphere.

The food was very good and came in huge portions, the staff were friendly and efficient and happy to advise on food and wine choices.

Well worth a visit, but arrive hungry!

“Bavarian food served to a high standard”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Bavarian food may strike the average punter as fairly straightforward so if a restaurant is to stand it must have some special highlights. Spatenhaus food is delicious and in my opinion their ingredients and fresh preparation must be the reason. We walked of the street and got seated in a relaxed room. The service was speedy. Prices a little on the high side but this is down to its location I guess. It gets 5 points because their potato and cucumber salad was the best I tasted in Munich.

“Great location”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

The food's good. Prices are still reasonable although slightly dearer than other alternatives within reasonable walking distance. Great if you fancy a view of the Opera house. Service is good and, if you travelling solo, they'll find you a place on a table where conversation is normally good!

“Traditional Bavarian food”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Although we did not get the best table, I found the experience at the Spatenhaus very enjoyable. The portion size is generally quite big in Germany so if you are feeling only a little bit peckish, then do order half a portion. The restaurant will gladly accommodate your request. Friendly staff and very clean toilets, should anyone wonder!

“Delicious German Fare”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Was able to secure a last minute reservation during a very business time. Even though we had a set time to finish, were not rushed by the staff. Variety of choices and quality was great. Recommended if you are looking for good German food.
