A very large bierstube with a very genuine interior. The staff is service minded, attentive, and dressed in very genuine bierstube clothing. The food - I had the wienerschnitzel... Not a good choice.

Hofbräuhaus is always a favorite. Food is great, I would say that the pork knuckle here is one of the best I've ever had compared to other German restaurants. Beer of course, no need to say it is great. On Friday evening, you can enjoy a good atmosphere singing along some Oktoberfest songs. This is always a great choice to... More

We visited here on a Friday evening. We reserved a couple of days prior - this was easy to do via email. We were seated straight away. The lady that served us was great, she was very attentive and we didn't wait long for our drinks or food. The atmosphere was very enjoyable with live music. I recommend booking as... More

It is a typical biergarten designed as Bavarian Oktoberfest tent. Good German food and tasty Hafbrau brand beer. Busy on summer and September.

Reserved a table for a Saturday evening on a recent trip to hamburg, after having been on previous trips only to be told you needed a reservation. Nice relaxed atmosphere, they had the football on the big screen which was good. Ordered the half chicken with potato salad, which I asked if the potato salad could be swapped for fries... More

Brilliant experience - We had a great afternoon here! The place isn't the most inviting from the outside in the day time and you could easily mistake it for a nightclub, however once your through the doors you know you've found somewhere special! We did the typical tourist thing (unashamedly) and really enjoyed our very large biers to wash down... More

This felt like a very traditional beer garden, with long tables and benches, they served traditional food like schnitzels and sausages and pork, all very good. There was a lot of different beers served in different sizes, try the giganting "mass" size if your thirsty!

But food was really fat. The Eisbein was white instead of nicely browned skin. The Schweinshaxe was good though. Service was annoyed when we asked some questions. Especially when she noted we didn't give a nice tip she got pissed. Afterwards when we did leave another €5 she didn't even look ... so unsomething!

Thank peterww2013
