Every time we come to Munich, this is our first stop. The porknuckle is fantastic and the service is great. We had dinner there last night and were not disappointed. We were lucky enough to sit next to a traditional Bavarian dancing group there celebrating the holidays. We had a blast!

We visited Haxnbaur last Friday evening. ALthough we did not book a table we only had to wait a couple of minutes to be seated even though the place was very busy. The food was excellent especially the Pork Knuckle with crackling.. Would highly recommend

Every time I'm in Munich I visit the haxnbauer. It's getting worst . Yesterday the porknuckle was dry and burned. The krautsalad was nothing special only the potato dumplings were at their usual. It was my last visit because i don't want to go down to one star

This is a tourist spot but locals come here too. They do one thing well and that is pork knuckle! Whatever you order will be fresh good and plentiful. If we did it again we would share an entree.

This place was packed when I went. It was right next the hotel that I was staying at. I of course got the pork knuckle and potato dumplings. This was what seemed to be the most popular, even with the natives. Even without a reservation, we got in very quickly. Next time I'm in town, I'll definitely be re-visiting this... More

This is the ultimate place for Haxe, they have both pork and lamb and numerous other meats. We chose the platter for two which included 4 varieties of meat, Klose and sauerkraut. Although very popular in the summer we were able to get a table in November. It can be hard to find, so google first. Definitely worth the effort.

Dear waiake1, thank you very much for taking your time to recommend our restaurant. We are glad that you like what we offer. We may add that the knuckles are mainly pork and veal - but yes, we serve all kind of meat, especially on the platters. Hope to see you here again one day! Best wishes from our team... More

Whenever I visit Munich, I make it a point to dine at Haxnbauer, one of my sainted father's favorite restaurants, and which has become one of mine as well. On my November 2016 visit to Munich and the surrounding area, my wife and I dined at Haxnbauer on two occasions, and on both occasions we ordered the same menu item.... More

We had a traditional schnitzel and a grilled pork – the meet was perfect on both dishes and the price level is good The atmosphere is “a live” and the service very quick and friendly. Most of the staff also speaks English (many tourist comes here) If you are looking for a dinner and place with all Bavarian traditions (food,... More

Skip breakfast. Even better, give up food for a month before and you might get just get through one of their epic 1/2 shoulders. You can order a whole one but you'd have to be mad! This is a great place to eat if you love meat and want to experience a traditional German feel.

I accidentally found Haxnbauer by following my nose, as the smell of roasting pork was incredible. When I got closer I saw the pork on the spit through the window and ventured in and asked if they had a table for 1 person. I was greeting with a smile and the words " Of course". I was shown to a...

Description
Our old Munich city restaurant is part of a historical building, the Scholastikahaus, which was historically documented for the first time in the 14th century. The Kufflers renovated the restaurant elaborately. Today "Haxnbauer" is a popular meeting point for the established Munich population and guests from all corners of the world.

At the grandiose Haxengrill delicately seasoned pork knuckles and veal joints ("Haxen") are tenderly grilled on the beech wood charcoal grill and served as a crispy unique delicacy. The knuckles are marinated 24 hours in a (secret!) Salt-herb mixture before they are grilled. The meat smells fantastic and with its unique taste, crispy crust and delicate meat definitely lives up to its promise.

Tasty Munich specialities and modern dishes round off the offer at Haxnbauer in every respect.
