I had pork knuckles for dinner and it was the way I had expected it to be , the skin was crispy while the meat soft and tasty. The pumpkin soup was excellent.

Spatenhaus is directly across from the Opera House in Munich. We ate in their downstairs dining room and had a great dinner. I ordered their Schnitzel, which was crisp and tasty. Service was very good, beer was good as well. Definitely a great local option...More

Had a great lunch at Spatenhaus. Sat outside and enjoyed the scenery. Wait staff was friendly and helpful, all spoke English. Had the weisshurst and it was fantastic. And of course the house brew. Really enjoyed it.

I can't speak to customary but we were watching a lot of people at Spatenhaus get their dinner before and then simply walk over to the Opera. Probably more of your eating preference. Do both! Eat before, dessert after... More

Yep. Book ASAP because of Oktoberfest. AND - There is no way anyone can promise that the weather will allow outside dining or lunch. Talk to the team or send an Email.... most of them speak english. => Enjoy!

A traditional institution at Max-Joseph-Platz, in perfect harmony with the Bavarian National Theatre, Residence and Palais an der Oper. The Munich citizen goes to Spatenhaus with his family, and he invites his business partners to our restaurant, for special events. On the ground floor our restaurant leaves a down-to-earth impression, the four rooms on the top floor are more elegant. The restaurant stands for exclusive hospitality and exquisite traditional German cuisine. Old Bavarian dishes enrich the menu card on the ground floor. On the top floor the kitchen crew offers its guests a more differentiated menu, taking individual requirements into account. Exquisite fish cuisine, classic dishes of Bavarian and Austrian cuisine supplement each other, thus catering perfectly for all tastes. If the weather is dry, the terrace on the Residenzstrasse fills rapidly and is a truly wonderful location to experience typical Munich culture until late at night.
