“Quintessential summer evening in Germany”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

We had a lovely evening here. The casual wooden tables were set with crisp white linens and placed in the lawn amidst fruit trees, with the atmosphere of an upscale picnic. Our food was outstanding, and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful.

“Our best meal in Bavaria”
Reviewed June 3, 2012 via mobile

We visited this hidden gem on our last night and very nearly missed it, it's not the easiest restaurant to find but well worth the effort to find, we didnt book and thought we would be turned away as every table was taken at 7.30 on a sunday evening, worth booking just in case. They confirmed a table would be available in 5mins and advised us to look around the adjoining museum. Our german was very limited and the waitresses couldn't have been more accommodating and arranged for a colleague to sit with us for 5/10 mins running through the menu in english, he even apologised for his American twang he had picked up, we could not believe how kind, welcoming and considerate all the staff were to make our experience a pleasant one. The food was beautifully presented and was simply gorgeous. It would not matter what you ordered in this restaurant it would all be of a high quality and judging by how packed it was no one leaves disappointed. The ambience was very traditional. Make sure you go!

“You can't really get any better”
Reviewed May 13, 2011

We have often enjoyed a suberb evening here with excellent food and service. The house has character and they have recently built a small exquisite hotel next door. In summer you can eat in the garden and in winter the cosy atmosphere of the restaurant takes some beating. The family who owns and runs this fine house are dedicated, so you can be pretty sure that the quality is consistent. Be sure to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
