Very noisy, but made for a great atmosphere with everyone enjoying themselves. We shared a table as so busy but that is the way it's done in here. Beer was good and so was the food. We had Backhendl and Schweinebraten followed by Dampnudel. All excellent. God service

Located just off Marienplatz and a typical Bavarian beer and food hall. Recently re-furbished and looking good. Very busy whilst we were there but the service staff were efficient, polite and very helpful. The atmosphere was great and the beer was a delight. The food, however, was the low point of the evening.

Stopped here in search of something small plus dessert. Was not hard at all to find a spot for two people on a Friday evening. The potato soup and Dampfnudel were excellent! Had the Edelhell beer which was very good and also neat to watch the wooden kegs get tapped.

We came across Donisl while wandering around Marienplatz area and it happened to be around lunch time. We sat in the front of the restaurant overlooking the street. We had a go with the German menu however after not much luck the waitress was happy to bring us an english one. The atmosphere in the restaurant is nice; there appears... More

We walked by and decided to drink beer. The restaurant is located in the heart of the city. Free places are, but not in the center of the room. We drank beer and schnapps. Food was not ordered, so that about it can not say anything. I remember there is one ritual: when they start to pour beer from the... More

when we let the waiter know our tablecloth hadn't been cleaned, he smirked, picked it up, shook it out and put it back on the table upside down, whereupon we should've taken our leave, but didn't, for being nonplussed, and out of courtesy each to the other guests at our table - the food was nothing special, though the atmosphere...

We visited at around midday on a Saturday. There were a few occupied tables though the impression we had was that around half were empty. The restaurant has an 'open air courtyard' feel to it, thanks to the centrally placed glass ceiling - this does much to enhance the light, modern and neutral decoration of the room itself. Gentle traditional/folk... More

Dear TeeAndToffee, thank you so much for this detailed review on your stay at our restaurant. What you may like to know is that the glass ceiling can be opened in the summer. This, and the outdoor seating (also in the summer) gives you a touch of that Biergarten-Feel in midst of downtown Munich. Maybe we will have the pleasure... More
