About 1 hour train ride and walk out of town. Came here expecting to see a brewery and there was but it is all very new and industrial. The restaurant offers a nice ambiance however, large patio/biergarten that was closed when we were there. The food at the restaurant was really really good, German cuisine revisited I guess you could call it, with a whole page of fresh seasonal / locally procured options. The beer was nice, pretty much every Weihenstephaner beer + a one off seasonal that was a brewpub exclusive. Service was very professional and our waitress spoke good english. Very satisfying visit.
The restaurant & biergarten is situated within a university campus. We first had a couple of beers at the biergarten. It feels like it is situated in a forest with lots of greenery around you. Here they have the selfservice option. Upon relishing few beers, we decided to try the restaurant. The ambiance in here is rustic & traditional. The service was spot on offering good recommendations. As for selection, you get their whole range here. Unfortunately the Vitus was served in bottle. The food was yummy & served in large portions. We had an excellent time here & spent almost the whole afternoon. Well worth the detour from Munich to enjoy a lovely walk, fine beers & food.
We visited here for lunch (17/1/14), the restaurant was was quite busy, but we found a free table by the window. The service was prompt and friendly. All the beers were available, which allowed me a few new rates! The food was exceptional, typically Bavarian, i had the schweinehaxe, which was as big as the dinner plate it arrived on, washed down with the dark wheat beer, it was perfect. The bill for the meal and beer for 4 people came to less than 70€, which i think is a bargain.
We visited this place on 6.1.2014 on our way back from California. Was great to be finally at this traditional place where beers were brewed already in the 10th century. The beer restaurant is just ok, the service not very friendly and the food mediocre, but they have all the great Weihenstephan beers on tap. We had the pale Weizenbier, the unfiltered Pils, the traditional Dunkel and the Weizenbock, all great!!!
Great place, fantastic ambiance, amazing food, exceptional beer. Beer is very nicely priced and the food is a little bit expensive, but it’s all worth it. And the hike up the hill is pretty, and it overlooks the majority of the town.
