Was planning Italian, but had to make an alternate plan. Passed this restaurant earlier in the day and their menu and brewery caught my attention. I arrived along side a group of 20+ people and was concerned about timing, but not a problem at all. Prompt service and very good food. Being a carnivore, I appreciated the portions of pork....

There invariably comes a time when foreigners in Italy can no longer face pasta and pizza. It usually takes me about four to five days. This place around the corner from my hotel is just the ticket. A bierkeller type place serving lots of Austrian specialities as well as more traditional Italian fate. The Braumeister mixed platter had delicious meat,... More

Birreria Forst is very popular, but the result is a hectic atmosphere, mediocre service and OK but not great food. The beer was very good but otherwise I would not go out of my way to eat here again. Trieste has a number of very good restaurants and I would not put Birreria Forst in that category.

Big German beerhall style place. The food and beer were both very good, and service fine. It was nice to see a good range of German style beers, served in ceramic mugs if you go for the 0.5 litre size. The atmosphere was OK, but the place seems to be a popular feeding spot for the huge and noisy packs... More

This is around the corner from our hotel. We went once and then came back again. The sausage and sour kraut dish was excellent. The potatoe and cheese baked dish was the best scalloped potatoes I ve ever had. Service is so prompt. All servers work all the tables, so it is easy to make contact for the little extras.... More

This restaurant was very handy to our accommodation at Le Residence Terrazze so we ate here a few times during our stay in Trieste. The beers were COLD, pizzas very good, schnitzels and steaks were also good. The variety of food on offer was more than enough to make one think what to really eat. Service was quick and spacing...

After a long flight from South Africa we arrived in Trieste and went in search for food and found the Birrera Forst. The atmosphere is a bit sterile but the foo and service were good. Not really a place to find Italian specialities more an international menu suited to a pub.

My son and I both got the Wiener Schnitzel which was fantastic, my wife got the spaghetti which she enjoyed as we'll. We also wanter to try their pizza which was good, but I prefer a little more sauce than they use. The pizza was also rectangular not round and the crust a little thicker than the pizza we are...
