This seems popular with the locals, and to me, that is always a good sign. The schnitzel is my favorite dish. You can get it with frites or home style potatoes. The normal serving is two pieces of meat, but you can get a smaller portion (one piece of meat) if you ask.

The restaurant serves everything you expect and want from a comfort food German restaurant. The service is excellent and very friendly. Restaurant staff work hard to accommodate special requests or to cater to children and babies. We will be back for sure.

Another restaurant in the town that is on the list to check out. As always in Germany the beers are good. The food here was average compared to all the other places we ate at during our week in the area. Both our meals - Veal Goulash & Boiled Beef - were very average. Nothing about the meal stood out....

Stopped in for a late lunch, I had the pork schnitzel with fries and a salad while my wife had the veal goulash with buttered noodles and a salad. All the dishes were served steaming hot, freshly prepared and very flavorful. The schnitzel was crisp, yet not dry and the fries were nicely salted and also crisp. My wife loved... More

Gasthof zum Stern is a nice restaurant in the centre of Oberammergau. they serve Bavarian traditional meals. The quality is good and the pricing is fair, about average in Oberammergau. The service is good and the staff is friendly. As most of the reastaurants, zum Stern has a few tables outside if you want to enjoy the sun.

Casual and comfortable restaurant for locals and tourists alike. We had the Zweibelrostbraten and it was the best we had on our travels in Bavaria. The meat is good. The thickness is just right (slightly thicker than usual). They cooked it specific to our order (medium rare) and it comes covered with freshly prepared onions. the sides are potatoes and... More

We had dinner twice in three days at Zum Stern, we were very happy after our first experience. Very good quality, good sized portions, very flexible and accommodating staff, delicious beer and very fairly priced. I was very happy eating there.

Found this place while walking along the street. In a small hotel but not charges hotel rates. You will definitely get your moneys worth and leave full. Small European atmosphere we shared a table with a local family and had the best time. Ask about the specials you wont be disappointed, they don't take credit cards so make sure you... More
