“Big tasty meals.”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Passing by early evening and the entrance looked quaintly interesting, so we popped inside. It was bustling - noisy and smokey! However, on asking, a table for two was found in a quieter room with other quieter diners, away from the smoke and bustle of the main bar area.

An English menu was offered making choices considerably easier, drinks and two excellent meals arrived soon after - very large servings! By some odd coincidence, the only other English speakers were at an adjacent table and from our own small hometown half a world away! It was obviously a very popular pub/restaurant with locals too, even in a regular Tuesday night.

“Overpriced-slow service”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

Made reservation online on their website..when we arrived no record

Food was mediocre and overpriced for what ate...had the specials
We had just arrived in Passau and went to get dinner....afterwards took dog for a walk and saw at least 1/2 dozen places to eat where the food on the plates looked much better

Nice beer garten, well layed out for distances and shrubs for privacy

Chairs could have been a bit more comfy

“Great Local Food in Passau”
Reviewed January 16, 2012

Our hotel called to make a booking for us, and even though it was a Saturday night on the first weekend of the Christmas Market in town, the restaurant was able to make a table for ten for us. The food was excellent. The pumpkin soup with pumpkin seed oil, the venison, and the lebkuchen strudel were all especially delicious, although there were so many of us that we tasted a huge variety of excellent dishes. The staff were very busy but took the time to explain the menu in the best English that they could. If you want to have local food, this would be an excellent choice.

“Great choice for regional dishes in Passau”
Reviewed October 5, 2011

We found this charming restaurant in Passau by wandering the streets. We were warmly greeted by the staff just as the restaurant was preparing for their evening rush. Most of the tables were reserved which indicated to us that we found a popular eating establishment. The interior had a beautiful rustic look and wood-paneled walls that reminded me of a hunting lodge. The food was fantastic - their roast duck was fabulous on the day we dined there. The owners of the restaurant owns a winery in Austria. My wife, the wine drinker in Germany, enjoyed their white wine (called Gruner Veltliner) and even purchased a few bottles to bring home.The establishment has a nice outdoor patio for dining - something we didn't see until we were about to leave the restaurant. Look for it - you'll have a wonderful dining experience.
