We visited the Alte Post on the day of the Stadfest and sat in the outdoor area. The restaurant had plenty of staff working and we were served promptly. The food was the best we had during our five day stay. While we were eating it began to rain, but luckily as the other diners headed inside, we were one of three or four tables to stay dry. The beer complimented the food and all in all a very pleasant experience.

Based on the recommendation of my hotel I went to this restaurant to sample traditional German food. It is within easy walking distance from the lake front and has both indoor and outdoor seating. Unfortunately the day I went there it was raining and seating outside was not possible. The restaurant serves both German and Austrian food. The food comes in ample portions and taste was quite good. Service in terms of promptness and attentiveness was good. The interior seating was nicely furnished with traditional touches but I felt the seating arrangements are slightly cramped. I consider the price range to be reasonable but not budget and if I compare the food or service quality with the price then I have no problem in recommending this place.

We asked our hotel, Maxhotel, for a recommendation for somewhere with good local food and no tourist menu. We were really pleased with our evening.

We got there early as our hotel staff said it fills up quickly. Then menu is in german which is a sign that it won't be poor tourist food.

The staff were really helpful at explaining the dishes and recommending good local choices.

The food was of a very high standard and tasty. We didn't recognise several of the ingredients. Our waitress went above all expectations and went to the kitchen and brought out the vegetables to show us what they look like in the raw form. I have never had service quite that good before.

The prices were very reasonable. We had 3 mains, a side of vegetables, 2 desserts, 2 wines and 3 beers for 71 euros.

The mains came with interesting accompaniments. My dish was beef with sliced potatoes with 2 sauces in dishes to add: an apple and horseradish sauce and a cream and chive sauce. The vegetable side was large and you could tell the vegetables were in season. The apple strudel is made on site. The suggested local wines were a good match for our meals.

I just can't speak highly enough of the service we received and the quality of teh food.

Convenient location on the island. The delicious Felchenfilet Mueller Art was our best meal in Germany. Nice seating inside and out.

Alte Post is Lindau at its best in location, food, service and comfort. A short, picturesque, level, walk to the harbour and promenade, this lovely old building is perfectly located. The restaurant was beautiful, with fresh flowers and pristine linen but a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The food was excellent in all respects - promptly prepared, beautifully presented, top ingredients. The locals were eating here - that is usually a good indicator of value for money. Lindau is not cheap, but this is probably the best at the price. Charming staff. Friendly proprietors. We had a great holiday.
