We missed spargel season, but were here for yellow mushrooms. We were seated in the garden area on a pleasant early summer night. Our server asked if we spoke German, and when we said not really, she immediately arranged for a server who spoke English. There was an English menu for the general menu, but our server was kind enough to interpret the specials which were only in German. My wife had a special dish that was a turkey filet with yellow mushroom sauce over a bed of spinach pasta. She really liked it. I had a traditional Wiener schnitzel with roasted potatoes that was delicious. With side salads, wine, and cappuccino, the bill including a tip was approx. 50 Euro.
A bargain for quality food, excellent service in a lovely garden. We looked at the inside dining rooms in this historic building. Truly beautifully kept and unique.

From prior experiences I was not expecting to enjoy traditional regional German food. But the food here was exceptional, particularly anything involving pork. Service was very good, friendly to non-German speaking customers. Dining rooms are very old style and beautiful. Highly recommended.

We were here during "spargel" (white asparagas) season (May) and were in teh "cave," which is the lower level of the restaurant. We ate fairly early (7:00pm) and found the cave to be a lovely location, well laid out for the number of tables - quiet enough for 4 people to relate easily and enjoy their time as well as the very special meal which did include asparagas. The service was friendly, prompt and deserving of compliments. It's a delightful spot and should be the first choice of anyone visiting Passau, a lovely city along the Danube and fun to walk around, see the castle, catherdral and all the river cruising boats. Another plus was our great weather.

This is a place where you cannot go wrong. Always good food and if you are lucky enough to make it to their special cellar (in the back of the restaurant, entrance through gate to the left of the main entrance) you'll see that this one is rather special.

Do stay away from the Biedermeier-coffee. It sounds attractive, but most people I know found it horrible. So don't say I didn't warn you. The rest is really just gorgeous.

Nice to know, the cast of Ghost Hunters International ate here as well.
