I really like the tables on the first floor. It's not as busy and crowded as the ones on ground floor.
The food is good (all the Bavarian dishes one would expect here). Most of the time I go with the classics like the roast of pork or dumplings. Never got disappointed.
The prices are OK and the staff is just like they are supposed to be at a Bavarian restaurant.
Ok, I gave Augustiner another try. The bier's okay -- nothing special. Munich has so many other bier halls but I wanted to give this one a try.
We visited Friday evening and the place was absolutely packed. We were lucky to find a couple empty chairs at a community table and chatted with the others for a while. We didn't try their food so no comments about food here. The service was pretty attentive. The bier was okay (there's much better bier in Munich). The hall was way, way too hot to stay for long so we had our bier and left.
Nope, we won't be going back here. Too many other better places to drink in Munich.
Conveniently located next to the Frauenkirche and home to elderly scam artists..... So I am sitting and an old fellow, looking quite respectable, sits across from me, which is normal. I order and he's speaking German to me which I politely convey that I don't understand. His lunch arrives (coincidentally the same thing I ordered, so I'm sure you know where the story is going) he eats up and leaves. After quite some time I ask the waitress about my lunch whereby she let's out a string of what I assume are curses and explains in English that this guy told the server we are together and he left without paying for his lunch or his drinks.
At which point my lunch is replaced and it is delicious - schweinebraten with a dumpling thing. And pfannenkuchen suppe which is beef consommé with strips of crepe instead of noodles.
So, for excellent beer, great food and a free side of entertainment, I give Augustiner 5 stars!
We stopped in for some food and beer after a day of walking the city. I probably haven't had enough exposure to German cuisine but it sure seemed pretty good.
I imagine that it could be a bit touristy.
In my first night in Munich I stopped here with my colleague and enjoyed very delicious litres of fresh brewed bier for about 3 hours. Huge beers for 7€ can't be beat. To eat I had the rump roast with rosti which was very tasty and served piping hot. Our bartender was so down to earth and had a couple jokes about Jersey boys being obnoxious which I hopefully proved otherwise. Awesome time and I'd definitely would come back next time I'm in the amazing city of Munich.
I've been here a few times, and each time it's been fine.
Whether you're inside or out don't expect the warmest of welcomes.
And of course it's crawling with tourists! Look where you are.
The food is OK, the beer is better. Wait staff by and large are fair to terrible.
Not the best Bayerische food that I've ever eaten but not the worst. It's just kind of there.
Generally, the service here is quite good. However, I've also received some of the worst service that I've ever had anywhere in the world here too. Just something to be aware of.
One last thing, if you sit out back be prepared to be smoked out.
The location is just perfect, right in the heart of the city, maybe the touristic city, but that's fine. The ambient, nice and friendly, and friendly are also all the people working in it.
Food, quite good, traditional with a value for money. You can find, rare in Munich, the Flammkuchen, the alsatian speciality.
And. a fantastic beer, for me, the best in town!
Had the Augustiner beer which was great & I don't usually drink beer. The turkey schnitzel special was tasty with the chili sauce. Convenient to Marienplatz. I would return!!
Einmal Augustiner und nie wieder!
Ich war mit Bekannten im Restaurant und ich hatte mir ein original Wiener Schnitzel mit Fritten bestellt... Und was Kriege ich? Ein Jägerschnitzel mit weichen Pommes, die auf einem Sauce-See mit Champignons schwimmen...
Das Schnitzel war zwar ein anderes, aber nicht so schlecht. Dennoch war es eher schlecht.
Die Bedienung war unfreundlich, irgendwie "Rüde" und vergaß sogar fast das Bezahlen, nach 3 mal "winken"... Das Spezi war auch eher klein. Es war sehr laut und die Bedienung hinter dem Biertresen schmetterte als die Teller mit hoher Lautstärke auf den Tresen.
Insgesamt waren wir von der Leistung her gar nicht begeistert, unfreundliches Personal und falsche Speisen geliefert...
Des mit'm Augustiner, des machma nie wieder!!!
A great place to sneak out of work and watch the snow fall with a tasty Augustiner in hand... you know, theoretically. :-)
Best beer in Munich and fabulous weisswurst for breakfast.
A traditional Bavarian restaurant in the centre of Munich. Right beside the FrauenKirche. On a summers day there are lots of tables outside and the sun hits them at about midday. The food is very good and the service friendly and fast. In winter there is cosy seating on 4 floors and gets packed quite early in the evening.
This place has some of the most delicious food and beer we have ever had. The service was quick and friendly and they spoke english! We had the Jaeger Schnitzil and the Nuremburgwursts and both were absolutely perfect! Their house brew is some of the best we tasted while in Germany! The location was very central and easy to find.
A great pub in a great historic location. As a rule of thumb, any Augustiner pub will be fantastic
I was not expecting much from such a touristy place...so Augustiner performed to expectations. The service was terrible...they forgot to put in the order for 2 of the 5 people in our group. I have to admit it is nice to sit outside looking over to the Frauenkirche and the Goulash I ordered was good, but the samplings I had from the rest of the groups dishes were not good. We thought they were joking when they brought out the tiny plate of kaiserschmann for dessert (especially for the price)...the people next to us received a huge plate! We were quickly informed that they were dining at the restaurant next door...haha. Think I will sit next door on my next visit to the area...
