I tried a lovely cheese soup bavarian style, a filet mignon medium rare and a perfect dessert. And it was great. The atmosphere in the restaurant is quite old, wooden style. Based on this it was a bit noisy. But in total recommendable.

The restaurant Obere Mühle is a comfy place with wonderful food. You can sit in the traditional main room and enjoy cheese soup or beef stew with home-made "Spätzle. I'd recommend this to anyone visiting the area. All the waitresses were really nice and welcoming.

Probably one of the best restaurants in Oberallgäu at reasonable prices for great value. It's eating delicious Bavarian food in a museum. Also great for children to roam the large garden. The menu offers a good variety of typical local food. The meat is grilled on open fire, sauces are freshly made etc and the portions are well sized. The... More

This restaurant is an absolute must if you are after a special meal, but make sure you make a reservation. The restaurant was very busy for a Sunday evening, which was a good sign. The menu is very extensive, with a daily special menu of five courses, which three of our group chose. The courses were just the right size,... More

We were lucky to get a reservation the same day on short notice and had a chance to sit next to the kitchen. In this buidling from 1433 we were able to watch how the food was prepared and enjoyed a variety from lamb, cows and deer. To sum it up, it was a reasonable price for real good food!... More

Staying in Bad Hindelang, we have enjoyed exploring the local restaurants and decided to try Obere Muhle. What a pleasure to walk to the restaurant, through fields and by a small steam. Not sure of what we would find, the restaurant is housed in a truly enchanting old farmhouse bedecked with geraniums and surrounded by a beautiful garden. There is... More

The Obere Muhle is an extremely interesting old farmhouse with an attached museum, antiques shop and cheese/dairy outlet but did not live up to its reputation the night we visited. The restaurant is an interesting old building which retains a great deal of cultural charm but we were disappointed with the service and the food. Service: Lacked the attentiveness that... More

We've been returning to this family run restaurant for over 20 years and it's always a highlight of our visiting the Allgau! The resto is in an 415yo farmhouse next to the river with a still functioning mill wheel and if you like antiques, you must visit their antiqueladen. They also produce and sell wonderful cheeses here. I know, it... More

Thank you TripAdvisor friends for an excellent recommendation. This restaurant is worthy not only of the top spot in Bad Hindelang, but also of a leading position in Bavaria overall. To give you the brief version, we ate there in the two evenings we ate in Bad Hindelang, but we would have hapily eaten there until we exhausted the menu... More
