Founded in 1903 (and was once a cabaret) there's not a single modern photo among the hundreds on the walls. Located in the center of student life with reasonable prices to match. Food is classic Bavarian but also cheeseburgers (de-lish) and a good Flammkuchen. Service...is excellent and if you speak German the waiters will give you a short history of the importance of the place in German cultural history. A great place to grab a bite and have a good Bavarian beer. I shall return!More

Great traditional Bavarian restaurant/bierstube with great atmosphere and charming staff. The weisswurst was excellent - snow white, delicately flavoured, flecked with parsley. But I don't do the 'zuzler' - if you don't know ask a local!

Great place with an awesome atmosphere. Staff were super friendly and gave us an English menu. They spoke great English and showed us how to pronounce some of the dishes in German! The food was gorgeous, perfect portion sizes, although some of the salad was...a little brown. Other than that, it was a lovely night out and enjoyed it thoroughly!More

A really great find. There is a wide range of local brews and seasonal specials. Spacious and traditional, this is a place I'd like to visit again: both for beers and to try the food. The menu looked great. Particularly notable was the service we...had at the table. Our server really knew his beers and was able to chat to us at some length and make very good recommendations.More

After a conference, we went here for drinks. I'd never heard of it and definitely plan to go back. It's not too far from the university, so prices are on the more affordable side for a sit-down restaurant/ bar in Munich. I just ordered drinks...but the food looked good and portions were pretty big. Staff was friendly, efficient, and had a good memory. The restrooms were clean. If you love German culture, this place is especially not to be missed. Regular guests included Frank Wedekind, Thomas Theodor Heine, Karl Valentin, and Joachim Ringelnatz. The walls are covered with photographs and drawings related to the old magazine Simplicissmus. The only negative I could think of was the beer choice - the entire beer list was pretty meh. Most of it was Löwenbräu/ Franziskaner and from the bottle, not the tap.More

So i recently visited this place with some of my colleagues. It’s a good place to have fun and have some drinks, we even tried the apple strudel and it was soooo good. The only thing i have to comment is that there was too...much noise. The rest was perfect!More

Bayerisches schnitzel with fried potatoes and beer. A good choice for dinner and then a beer at this area (universität). The dishes are tasty and huge.

Great service and food. We had the pork chop and the pork schnitzel and it was super yummy! Reasonably priced too, €28 for two people with drinks!
