This is a relatively affordable place to eat. I had a very tasty stuffed pork schnitzel with spaetzle. Interior not very interesting, we ate outside along the gasse. Since smoking is allowed everywhere, the air quality is a little better outside if not too cold.

I wanted to like this place because I had passed by the night before and what looked like the chef/owner was standing outside and greeted me in a friendly manner. He just looked like he knew a thing or two about cooking! The next day (today) I stopped in to check out the menu. It wasn't overly inspiring and there... More

You know when you are potentially in a good place when it appears a tourist hasn't been there for years! But not to worry, the waitress knows English and won't steer you wrong. Located in the artist area of Passau, a street up from the Danube, this restaurant will NOT disappoint! Grabbed a few business cards to share with Viking... More

Nice family owned place near heart of old towne. Owners onsite and very hospitable. Try the Passau Schnitzel stuffed with mushrooms, onions and cheese.

My boyfriend and I were hungry. And we saw this restaurant while visiting the city. The food was delicious and it was delivered in a timely fashion. Even the fact they only had one waitress and one chef. I highly recommend.

We had some free time for lunch on our own and were wandering around the cobblestone streets of Passau a few blocks from the Danube. Some of our fellow passengers were already seated in Zum Grunen Baum and invited us to join us. We were so glad we did. Home style German cooking, pork, dumplings and sauerkraut, very familiar to...

We really enjoyed the cuisine and the friendly waiter/barkeep at this authentic restaurant...in business since the 1700's. We were the only Americans(English speakers) in there today and while we tried with "Google Translate", a big part of the fun was working with him to order the fantastic meal (and bier(s) that we enjoyed!).

This little restaurant cafe is set on a lovely pedestrian street in Passau, and we took advantage of the outdoor seating. While we were there due to it advertising vegetarian and vegan specialties, I was disappointed that in reality there were actually few such offerings, and the wait staff speaks limited English so it is hard to verify what is...

Stopped in at the recommendation of a German friend of ours who went to college in Passau. A great location within easy walking distance of the river and the Cathedral. Located off of Passau's narrow cobblestone pedestrian walkways. Fantastic Schnitzel and Sweinerbraten. Great service.

Thank nwtsctp
