We tried out many Gasthaus type restos in downtown Munich and this one was above average. The menu is very similar, if not identical, to all the other restaurants of this type in downtown Munich, but in this case the stand-out was the nice decor and arrangement of tables and the friendly server. This place is very close to the... More

We had delicious German dinner with various sausage platters and pork leg. First place we went to that served a tray with different mustards for the pretzels and sausages. Beer was excellent too! Server was wonderful (girl from Nepal- who spoke perfect English). So friendly and attentive. Helps us clueless tourist! Think going during slow time helped.

A ghastly tourist trap. Food quite good actually, but expect to be treated like a tourist. We walked down Perusastraße and spied this nice, traditional-looking restaurant. They didn't have a menu outside, but they had a few extracts, and photographs of the food. I never go into restaurants with photographs of the food as they're always aimed at the worst... More

We were here for lunch in München and Weisswurst was really good. Plus the waitress(the asian one) was really friendly and service was excellent.

It was an end of March Saturday and we were very cold because it was windy. The service could have been better: few waiters for a large crowd. Food was ok but they need more waiters outside.

I go to Munich almost every year - and this is my number 1 go-to restaurant in Munich. It is traditional style Bavarian food at it's best. Additionally, the ambiance is both traditional as well as comfortable. I reviewed the restaurant in 2010 and it remains at the same wonderful quality.

The first room looks to my taste somewhat ordinary and plain but as you move further back into the building other rooms emerge and they have Bavarian atmosphere with lots of wood paneling and detailing.
