Take the U3 from Marienplatz all the way to Fürstenried West and and a quick cab ride to Forsthaus Kasten. We never would have known this existed had it not been for friends living in the area. While Munich is full of tourist food, and some of it very good, Forsthaus Kasten is for locals. And the food is worth... More

Dear JMWC2002, thanks so much for the review. Great that the enthusiasm for our beergarden goes beyond the Munich Area and that we were able to serve you some traditional Bavarian food. We hope you will visit us again on our next trip to Munich, your Forsthaus Kasten Team More

Visited the Forsthaus Kasten beer garden in Gauting with my family and friends recently. The weather was beautiful and sunny, which perfectly complemented what this place has to offer. The FK is apparently open on any day with good weather. Presumably this means between May and October primarily. The FK serves Paulaner beer, which is always welcome in the summer... More

We stop at this place while cycling on the way from Planegg to Stanberg, through the forest, and it’s raining. Nice place to sit for a while and drink beer and relax in nature. Quite big place with beer garden and park for kids and many outdoor activities.

Outstanding service and really great food. We ate traditional Bavarian food which was very well prepared. My children ate from the kiddies menu, which was also fantastic for them, as the menu included pomes (chips) which you don't always find in traditional Restraunts. Was a great evening. Only negative thing is that to jump on the trampoline for the kids... More

Dear Lynne & Bodo, thanks for your feedback and great that you enjoyed the restaurant. We appreciate it! Besides the traditional meals on the menu, we also serve seasonal and local dishes to vary the selection. We find that good quality products and a healthy meal are essential. The trampoline does cost 5€ per child but then the kids can... More

I am from South Africa, and I was expecting much more from the "weinfest". Very dissapointing. The food in the Biergarten was also terrible. My spare ribs was dried out and had almost no meat, the partner's chicken as still raw. When he returned it to the kitchen he was treated with disgust. The bicycle ride was nice. I will... More

This is a big outfit for German beer garden standards. A free playground on the right as you enter then an indoor restaurant serving Bavarian food and the huge plus an unlimited bouncing castles and trampolines with mini golf for only 5euro per kid. Bring your own food or buy there but only rule is buy drinks there. Parking is... More

Looking for a "more perfect union"? Look no further. This is the perfect marriage of sophisticated and food and Bavarian cosiness. People come from far and wide, yours truly all the way from Camps Bay, Cape Town, South Africa
