Amazing service and food. I absolutely loved this place. Didn't want to come here at first because I thought it was going to be too touristy and I wanted to show my bf authentic German food. But I am so glad that I went anyway! We ordered the Weisswurst for a starter and had pork knuckles and Wiener Schnitzel as well as Spätzle as our main dishes. Everything was so rich in flavor! The Andechser beer was delicious, I personally thought it had a tiny hint of cloves as an aftertaste which is super unique. But what made our experience really that special was our waiter. I have to say that I don't always encounter the best service in Munich restaurants. Most seem slightly annoyed and as if they are doing just enough work to get their shift over with already. But our server at this place was so helpful, so sweet and engaged, he really made me love the restaurant! He went out of his way to ensure our experience was great, he made suggestions and he listened to our sometimes weird requests carefully and helped us pick the right dishes. Very sweet and patient guy! Props to such a perfect service.
If the weather is nice, try to get a seat on the patio, its great for people watching and has a beautiful romantic ambiente. If it gets a bit chilly at night, they have a little blanket for each seat too, which is really cute!
Was able to enjoy that famous, cold, constant Bavarian rain while sitting al fresco at this amazing restaurant.
Outside, nice seating area and they provide red blankets at every chair to ward off the chill. Service was decent and the bier was some of the best you can get in the city. So frothy and rich.
Inside, there is a separate bar area, as well as the cozy (very packed) dining rooms The downstairs are is also filled with coziness and warmth. Very tight fits to be had everywhere. Great atmosphere and lighting.
I had a nice, warming bowl of oxtail soup and they specialize in wagyu beef. Unique for a place like this. The wagyu sausages were with some of the most amazing mashed potatoes and kraut I had the pleasure of ingesting. I will be back here, time and time again.
In Munich for a week on a work trip, I probably don't have time to visit Kloster Andechs (the out-of-town Monastery where they make Andechs beer), so this is supposed to be the next best thing. The place was a little hard to find, as I walked up and down Weinstrasse before figuring out it was actually on a sidestreet. The place was packed at 10 pm on a Saturday night. No seats anywhere, and they don't have a bar. You either sit at a table and the waitress comes around or you stand and flag down a waitress.
I stood in the very crowded room with all the people that were just drinking, not having dinner. A little smoky and pretty loud in there, but everyone was having a good time. I asked the waitress walking by for a Doppelbock Dunkel and she brought it fairly quickly. I was surprised that it was only 4 Euros for a 0.5 L glass. I had just paid 5,50 for lesser beers elsewhere around this area. The beer was extremely tasty and probably the best I've had of this style. I would have stayed longer but had already had a few before walking in here and it would have been better if they had a bar where I could have sat. I think I may go back tomorrow earlier and grab some food and try a couple more of their beers. I recommend this place if you're in Munich.
Update: went back and tried one of their Weissbiers...delicious. Then for dinner ordered wienerschnitzel with white asparagus and potatoes (23 euros). Food came out pretty fast and was really good - especially the fresh white asparagus, which was cooked perfectly and flavorful. I might go back here again this week. Beer and food that I've tried so far has been outstanding.
We wanted to stop at the Kloster Andechs on our way from Mittenwald back to Munich, but time got away from us and Andechser am Dom was our only option to try the famed Andechs brewery. The week before Oktoberfest on a Saturday around 6 pm and it was pretty packed. We waited for about 15 minutes before we were able to snag a table outside.
I did the plate with 3 regular sausages, 3 spicy sausages, sauerkraut & pureed potatoes. The spicy sausages were definitely my favorite sausage from our whole trip! My husband did a plate with Schweinsbraten and then finished up mine - apparently after some Helles and Weissbier, you need something to sop up all that beer. I'm not the type to drink crazy amounts of beer, so I stuck to water and just tried my husband's.
Dinner for two was around 25 euros. I thought it was fair, as the plates were large and the patio is quite lovely. Our server wasn't bad, considering the number of tables she was carrying. Plus she put up with my bad German, which makes anyone a saint in my book.
Sepp does a great job at his restaurant. The food is consistent and the quality continues to flourish. I had the schnitzel and potato salad and I have to say it's the best schnitzel in town. The beer is nice and cold and the service is top notch.
Andechser am Dom is sort of tucked away off the main pedestrian street in Munich, but if you can find the Frauenkirche you can find the restaurant.
Menu choices here can range from the very affordable to a little more pricey (20 Euro or so, you can decide if that's pricey or not). I've been with groups where diners have ordered schnitzel, the spicy wursts, and even duck. Never was anyone disappointed with their food. I can taste the tangy kraut and the 3 and 3 sausages (spicy and regular) as I write this, and I'm craving the food from 4,000 miles away.
There were plenty of beer choices too.
I would like to add that each time I have been to Andechser am Dom (3x in the last 2 years), the servers were top notch. They were so incredibly friendly to me and everyone in our group. I can speak German so I was translating the menu for others in our group. I think one server promptly brought out an English menu and another helped out by speaking a little English. But I won't forget how one waitress was so polite when one in our group wanted to order on his own speaking German. Each time I have been here the place has been crowded and the servers are all over the place, but they are very attentive and will make you feel welcome at their restaurant.
A bit more expensive then the regular brewery restaurants. Small plates, but the food is really good. Outdoor bar, patio, small restaurant. The staff is a bit overworked. The location is great.
The Spanferkelhaxn was very good, Blutwurstgröstl as well. Kässpatzn were great. They have a specialty of "Wagyu" beef everyday!
Will come back...
One of my best dining experiences ever. Not only is the food great (classic German fare), but the wait staff is super friendly. Cherry on top is the location: walking distance from Residenz, but tucked away in a semi-quiet corner.
Oh please, try the deserts!
A bit on the awful side, really. Due to their location they don't have to try very hard to find customers, and it shows. It'll do in a pinch, but c'mon, this is Munich; you can't throw a stone around here without hitting another restaurant or pub.
My favorite restaurant during our recent trip to Munich...my husband had been there before and we made a beeline there for our first meal in the city...and proceeded to eat there the next day as well. The staff were incredibly friendly and forgiving of our lack of German. The food was out of this world. We had the 3 regular and 3 spicy sausage plate described below and it was heavenly. I finally know what sauerkraut is supposed to taste like. We also shared a plate of pork chops that were the best I've ever had. The next day I decided to go for some schnitzel and it was terrific. I honestly don't think you can go wrong with their menu. And like most places in Munich, the beer was fantastic.
It was a little hard to find but well worth the effort to locate it.
A nice place in spring/summer if you can find a spot. The covered patio has a small TV for games and such. They are even open to showing the spring classics, as long as there are no football games on at the time.
The food is standard Bavarian, with some extras thrown in. I had an excellent salad with corn-flake breaded chicken breast that was perfect with a Helles.
Nice place to relax, as long as it's not packed.
Great bar, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the main thoroughfares.
Don't expect a quiet drink tho, the place is Always busy.
Friendly service, maybe they could do with some more staff, but the beer never really stopped flowing.
If you get a table in the covered terrace area do not give it up except for a very good reason!
This is the Munich restaurant associated with the Kloster Andechs (Andechs Monestary), which makes absolutely fantastic Doppelbock Dunkel (dark doublebock). I didn't even really like bocks before I tried this one and although I drank a LOT of beer(s) in Munich, it was by far my favorite. Also, our local source said this place had the best schnitzel in town, but I got some delish sausages instead. It's not cheap - it is in the middle of the main tourist district - but it is definitely good and has a very charming patio area with good service.
Awesome food, awesome atmosphere. This is the kind of place to get great local food and delicious beer. We got into Munich late and were looking for good food. They seated and served us at 10:30 at night. Everyone was friendly and spoke English.
I have never been disappointed from a visit here. The beer is from Kloster Andechs -- a favourite of mine -- and the food is upscale Bavarian. The owner (Sepp Krätz) also runs the Hippodrome tent at Oktoberfest. There are plenty of tourists here, of course (so they speak OK English), but also many locals come here. The most popular area with some is outside under the roof, where the TV is always dialled to soccer and smoking is allowed, but the rest of us are happy in the outside seating or inside. There are pictures of all kinds of celebrity visitors, especially popes, but I couldn't see Elvis. Worth a visit; reservations are recommended.
The doulbe bock is awesome and the food is very good. The staff is fast and helpful. The location is perfect in the city center close to the main church. Staff speaks different languages which is convenient and the atmosphere is lively.
When I was in Munich last summer I obsessively asked everyone I met where I could find the best schnitzel in town. The Andechser restaurant was recommended to me multiple times so, of course, I had to check it out. Definitely a bit more upscale and gourmet than your standard brewery restaurant. It was good stuff. Try the double bock -- it's the beer this brewery is famous for.
Jedes Mal wenn in München haben wir dort gut gegessen. Und dann dieses Jahr im Juni (2010) die schlimme Überraschung. Als Vorspeise die Rostbratwürstchen schmeckten nach nichts. Das Sauerkraut dazu direkt aus der Dose und im Microwave-Ofen aufgewärmt. Es kam noch schlimmer. Die Salatplatte mit HühnchenScheiben in Sesamkruste war kaum essbar. Der Salat bestand aus einer grob geschnittenen Eisbergsalathälfte mit einer ekligen süß-sauren kommerziellen Salatsauce. Die dünnen HühnchenScheiben total zerkocht und lauwarm. Das Bier war fein und die Lage draußen unter den Bäumen sehr gut. Schade, dieses Resto haben wir aus unserer Auswahl gestrichen.
A good little bar with great beer - when you can find a space
For drinks and over all fun, this is the spot. For food, its a bit too heavy for me, but I discovered the seasome chicken salad.. So its not my favorite .... k. My American friend Glenn Ackermann who lives in Munich loves this place.. Its his favorite spot.
Surprisingly good and authentic Bavarian in the tourist zone. Schnitzel was ganz gut and and the ox and veggie dish was sublime. Also, their beer comes from a monastery which has been brewing since 1450-something. Excellent helles.
Great food, and many dining atmosphere options! What I mean is, you can sit outside on the patio with complimentay blankets, stand in the packed and jovial bar, eat inside upstairs on a long table to meet new people, or downstairs in the cave like cellar, also with large and small tables. We really enjoyed the Kobe sausages with their sweet mustard, sauerkraut, Käsespätzle (Spätzle with cheese and onions), veal schnitzel, rocket potato salad, etc, during out three visits here within 3 days :). It was all Amazing!!! So instead of coming up with an adjective for each item, I will say that they were all top notch, delicious, flavorful, addicting, you name it! I didn't know that Sauerkraut or anything else listed could taste so good! They also have awesome sampler platters, especially if you have at least 4 people in your group. Highly recommended for the great food!!!!!!!!!!!! P.S. to the Americans... You will be charged for each item you consume from the bread basket, as well as for water, just like everywhere else in Germany.
