Look this place has great hearty food, traditional decor and friendly German service. Also a great selection of German beers and if you ask nicely they may even show you the beers that aren't on the menu. Secret beers! Painful if you don't have a designated driver.

As a German living in Australia I stay normally away from everything "German" but my Workmate wanted me to give it a try and I must say the food tasted like "home" and so we will be back soon. Even my American partner loved it... Five stars from both of us :-) PS. Gordon Ramsay would be happy with that... More

My grandmother, sister and I visited King Ludwig's today for lunch. It was incredible. The staff are friendly, accommodating and lovely. The food is exceptional and traditional. We weren't rushed through our meal ,and spent 2 and a half hours eating, drinking and enjoying the beautiful scenery. Please, book a reservation and enjoy a few hours experiencing the incredible atmosphere... More

This restaurant offers typical german and Bavarian dishes and a decent variety of German beers. All in all, nothing special, but everything good and tasty.

Staff were rude and made us feel like an inconvenience for them so our large group left without ordering and went elsewhere.

Barbara welcomed us at the door and even though we didn't have a booking (they were packed) this was not a problem and we were ushered to the bar while they prepared a table for us. The food was wonderful, the beer was... More
