We had a great evening meeting up with friends here for beer, pretzels, mustard and dinner. Live band with sing a long was a fun part of the night.

Many years had passed since my last visit. Coming in there this week I was surprised how bright and pretty empty the Donisl was at dinner time. White walls, new wood - overall, looked like a place converted to up-market. Food and service, however, were excellent, also the decoration of a private room on the first floor was nice.

This restaurant offers traditional Bavarian fare in a lovely setting. Then service and the food was of a very good standard, the staff helpful and efficient. The beer from the wood sold here was exceptional and probably the best beer we had during our stay in Munich. Would definitely recommend

Once entered in the restaurant you can appreciate the typical bavrian style, with big wood table. The menu is essential but respect the tradition so you can have wonderful meat specialities. The restaurant is reallt clean and there is a fast service.

We wanted to sit outside so we could watch the happenings at Marienplatz; however, it was raining and we were asked to find a table inside. Inside was packed but the hostess on the second floor was attentive in finding us a table and kept updating us. When we finally sat, we had a big rectangular booth that could easily... More

Best Schweinhachse (pork knuckle) I've ever had! The meat was so tender, and the knoedel and gravy were delicious too. My girlfriend had the fried chicken, which was top notch as well. Tack on some of the best beer in the city and you've got one of the best kept secrets in Munich. They had a band playing the night... More

Cafe, restaurant, beer hall in old town on Marienplatz. Outside cafe with great beer, bratwurst, and friendly patrons. Couldn't get enough of their potato dumplings in gravy. Don't look for diet food or light beer here!

After a litre of good beer everything is better! Stopped in for a traditional lunch with a great setting: music included. Beer was cold. Food was fine. Seeting was what you would hope for/expect. Service was prompt and the price was reasonable for just off the main platz.
