“yes it's ancient”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

That is what we love about this restaurant each time we visit Bavaria. In the summer time we sat outside in the garden and enjoyed dinner and the ambiance. In the winter the indoor setting is cozy and you literally feel the history surrounding this eatery. We have never been disappointed with lunch or dinner when we were there. I recommend it to any American tourist who might want to experience the old-timey atmosphere of this former monastery,

“Good restaurant with fine Bavarian food”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Spend a nice evening in this lovely restaurant. It is located in a very old building and has tons of atmosphere. The food is typically Bavarian, but with an extra fine toch. Service is fast and pleasant.

“Good food and good service”
Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

Good spot in the centre of town. The 'piglet' was excellent. Nice atmosphere inside and the service was pretty good. We had a very enjoyable lunch.

“Fun Lunch in the Garden”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

We recently visited Passau on a Danube River Cruise. When the organ concert ended at St Stephens, I knew we had better get away from the throngs exiting the church. Thanks to this site, we headed to this friendly establishment for a fun and comfortable lunch. We dined in the garden, enjoyed great service ,good food and better beer.

“Charming and welcoming”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Our tour group from our river cruise ship descended on this restaurant for lunch on a hot summer day. We were led back through the restaurant to tables shaded by grape arbors. The soup, schnitzel, spaetzle, and dessert were very good and the staff was efficient and friendly. There were other diners in the garden as well, so don't think they cater to only large groups. We've been to Germany before and have eaten local cuisines and this was very good.
