It has been a long time since we visited this area of Germany. The restaurant was what we had remembered from 30 years ago, 20 years ago and about 10 years ago. We were treated like honored guests. We walked into dining room about 6:45...PM and got the last available table. Our drink order was promptly taken and we took some time to peruse the menu. The menu is quite varied in selections offered. My wife chose a Rosti with pork medallions in cream and a salad, I had a schnitzel. For dessert my wife enjoyed a house made rote grutze. We were very pleased with our dinners and walked away happy.More

Our host in Bayrisch Eisenstein recommended this restaurant. When we went there on our visit to Zwiesel it unfortunately was closed that day. So one evening after our day's outing we decided to take the Waldbahn to Zwiesel in the evening just for the chance...to experience this highly recommended eatery. It was a good decision as the food was excellent, the setting outdoors lovely and the service friendly. A nice evening well spent.More

Perfect on a cool evening. Traditional Bavarian dishes, a nice glass of Grüner Veltliner, and extremely friendly service.

Sorry, but all was worser than last year. Grosse Salateplatte is really too sour, I don't undestand why is the cook not able to taste his product! And the duck with gratin potatoes doesn't look fresh a tastes bad. The staff and their work on...the average. We got back money, but we would better like to have a good lunch. Be careful, the quality of cooking is not the name of this restaurantMore

There is opened only two hours for lunch. Tasty starter and soup, excelent schnizels, but potato and mixed salads are too sour. The staff has little time for guests, you have to order, it is really not important, that you have the alarm in the...house, the staff must not wait! Strange modes of behaviorMore

We stayed in hotel Zur Waldbahn and had lunch in the restaurant arranged by our host. Very good variety of fish and chicken. Vegetables too were very tasty. Local beet was fresh and chilled, enjoyed. Had fun time at Hotel Zur Waldbahn.

I had the spargel (white asparagus), with buttered potatoes, grilled chicken breast, a slice of Black Forest ham on a bed of cooked spinach. It was like a Christmas meal! The blend of flavors was excellent and the chicken breast was moist. The kids had...the schnitzel. It was a huge portion, served with fries. The service was great. Can't say enough about this place!More

We never miss an opportunity to visit this excellent restaurant and we are obviously not alone as there are always lots of tables occupiedby locals and visitors. Situated across the road from the forest railway station and about 5 minutes walk from the centre of...town it is traditional in decor but the food ranges from traditional to modern. Try the salads or as I do make sure the main course you choose comes with a salad and the dressings are wondeful. The service is friendly and good to see them in the traditional "Dirndles".More
