Vitus or Koribinian a must taste. Fantastic ambience but as everyone writes - service is slow and not very pleasant. A bit pricey

Tourist trap for sure, but a decent place to shovel in some meat and try a few brews (mostly those you’ve already had, but now sampled by surly and/or diffident bier madchens). Food was average, everything overpriced, and we found ourselves wishing we’d gone back to the place just across the square (1809 or something like that) with the rad Berliner weisses.
Reserved a table with friends (smart move!) for early Friday evening.
We were promptly lead to the beer Keller and given menus. Besides all the Weihenstephan beers a full, authentic German menu. To save some room I started of on their pilsner, which I never had, and it is great! Fresh, bitter, mild maltiness and a nice slightly dry finish. Suffice it to say I had a few, as well as the Dunkel. We had a great time: good beer and food, topped of with some Obstler.
Staff started out a bit stiff, but loosened up when we turned out to be able to speak German and rack up a sizeable count.
