“Great Food, Less Touristy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

We had a very pleasant dinner at Wirtshaus zur Brez'n our last evening in Munich. Located on Leopoldsstraße in Schwabing, a short walk from the Munchner-Freiheit U-Bahn station, the restaurant is somewhat less overwhelmed by tourists than the many Bavarian restaurants in the vicinity of Marienplatz, about 3 km away. Fortunately, we had made reservations on a busy Saturday evening just before New Year's, so we were seated right away in the upstairs area. Service and food were top-notch, the atmosphere fun, and prices were reasonable. Who could ask for more?

“Nice place, gooood food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Although packed with guests the service was great, the variety of dishes enormous, the quality of the food excellent. The menu is fun to read, very unique. They have specialty weeks with new seasonal meals. The prices are okay. As dessert I can commend Apfelstrudel or Kaiserschmarren!! Don't leave without dessert!

“Very good restaurant in Schwabing district”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner here; we stopped in on a Friday evening and the place was packed; the hostess asked if we had a reservation; we did not, but they were able to accommodate us; our waiter was very accommodating and attentive, and the food was delicious.

“Great traditional Bavarian in a modern setting.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012 via mobile

Excellent food on a nice tree lined (slightly busy) street. It is in a trendy neighborhood with lots of life. Fun atmosphere and the choices are very good. Easy walk from the Ubahn. The Fleischpflanzerl (homemade burgers in mushroom sauce) is excellent and the Wiener Schnitzel is my new favorite in Munich! Save room for the Kaiserschmarrn (shredded pancakes with roasted almonds and apple vanilla sauce). Order early as this dessert takes 20 minutes to make.

“Best Bavarian Restauran in Munich”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2012

I ve been in Munich several times, and I know pretty well bavarian restaurants (that I love the food)...THis is definitely my favorite... I t has the best food in all Munich, fantastic duck and schwein braten. The atmosphere is not touristic like any bavarian restaurant in the city, and you can find many local people. Service is fast and kind, a good German place to spend the evening with good friends!
