This German restaurant is located just off one of Moscow's main arteries heading south out of the center. The entrance is pretty non-descript, with a sign above the door and little else. Once through the door, you see one large room divided in half by 1/4 wall and four brick columns. The ceiling is high and made of dark wood planks. The walls are white plaster with shelving containing everything from keys to bottles, wooden cats to potted plants. The floor is red tile. Large windows on two sides of the room are covered by dark curtains facing the street, light curtains to the back. The brick bar is immediately left of the door and has six wooden stools. The tables adn chairs are light-colored and fairly light-weight wood, offering seats for about 80 people. One table is accompanied by two leather couches. Big projection screen TVs hang from the end of each half room. There is another room downstairs of similar description, with enough seating for an extra 42 people. The place was 1/4 full on a Thursday at 4:00. Modern rock music was on the sound system. Despite the name, there is no reference to Schloss Linderhof at all.
Ten taps, including two contract brews bearing the restaurant's name: a filtered and an unfiltered pale lager. (The filtered was much better.) Other offerings included Liebenweis Hefeweizen (never seen that on tap before), Grotweg Dark (rare) and the usual suspects - Paulaner, Krombacher, Hofbräu Helles and Hefeweizen, Krusovice Pale and Dark. The waiter refused to tell me who brews their "own" beers, but they came in logoglassware for a beer (Zolotaya Bochka) that they don't carry - probably a hint. The beers were served well, at the right temperature and with nice heads. The service was prompt, attentive, and attired in traditional German costumes. The food menu was predominantly German, with all of the stuff you'd expect. Prices were reasonable, including a 2 for 1 beer special I took advantage of. Overall, the place is not worth seeking out, but could serve as a refuge in this part of town if one found oneself here.
