We returned to Passau on a Christmas/New Years cruise and immediately planned a lunch at this marvelous restaurant. We had eaten dinner there three years previously and thought it was well worth giving lunch a try. Once again we were not disappointed. The service, the house wine and the well prepared holiday special meals were exceptional. We would certainly encourage... More

Atmosphere was outstanding. Decor was dark but with very interesting ornate old stoves, chandeliers with a hunting theme, and animal heads hung on walls. Service was excellent for our large tour group; food was excellent with large servings. Wine and beer were not included; but the wine was really good - as is most German wine.

Excellent German food and beer, and exceptional service, in a traditional setting. We were told that the building was formerly a convent and dates back to the 14th century.

The food was excellent but the service was super excellent. Group started as 5 English and Spanish and grew with extra people from France to 8 then grew again to 9. The staff accommodated everyone gave menus in different languages and explained everything in detail. Cannot fault this place on service highly recommend well worth the visit.

At the recommendation from our guide, we sought out Heilig-Geist-Stiftschenke for lunch and it was a very nice recommendation. The staff had limited English and were patient with our little bit of German. We had very good snails (Schnecken) as and appetizer, and for main entrees, trout (Forelle Blau) and Rostbraten with a bottle of Chianti Classico. In Passau, this... More

As part of our Viking Tour we ate here for lunch one day. The food was 1 of the best resturant meals we had on our trip. (I do not know the cost as it was part of our package.) The resturant was full, with our tour group & regular customers. The staff served us in a friendly and speedy... More

Beautiful place, good food, prices not astronomical. Our second favorite place in Passau, and certainly worth a visit. The fare is traditional austrian/German and good.

The staff is very friendly, and the meat is really good. The side dishes however, need some upgrading to modern times, as does the interior. Kick out all silk flowers and get some fresh ones in! But probably most of the visitors of Passau like it the way it is...

Thank Anne-Marie K
