This restaurant/bar is right opposite the Hofbrau House, with seating outside and in. The interior is formal but very pleasant, clean, attractive and more up market than some places. There is an extensive and very good food menu, which is a little more costly than some, but worth the extra. This is (as others have said) not a beer hall, but a restaurant, though there is seating at the bar. Quiet pleasant surroundings with very good service, a peaceful haven from the Hofbrau House opposite! Waiting staff were very attentive, and made us especially welcome on return visits. There were five Ayinger Beers on tap at the time of our visit, and I personally rate them as possibly the best beers (apart from the Hefe Weiss - Schneider takes the prize for that!) available in Munich. The Lager Helles is crystal clear, light and refreshing, but a nice bitter hoppy aftertaste, and not "gassy" which makes it a great session beer - and a lot more character than most of the Lager beers in Munich. The Dunkel is darkish, sweeter and more malty, and again easy to drink and very pleasant. The unfiltered Keller beer was very similar to the Helles in character, though a little softer and rounder in texture. There were two Weiss beers, one pale, one dunkel and both were very good, the dunkel weiss being sweeter (though not that dark) and both excellent examples of the style. We returned here most evenings for our final beers, always had good service and enjoyed the beers very much. Quiet peaceful relaxed friendly atmosphere, good service and great beers make this my favourite Munich place for a beer. But, if you want loud beer hall frantic atmosphere and large crowds of drinkers, then go across the street!

We visited this bar again several times in May 2009, and enjoyed it as before, though the service could be a bit hit and miss! The keller unfiltered beer was great, as with all Ayinger beers, a great place for a more relaxed beer than the Hofbrau (or the Hard Rock which should be avoided!) If you like Ayinger beers, then a trip to Aying Village and Leibhards Bar/Restaurant should be on your list of 'to do's!' Only 30 mins on local S Bahn to Aying.

This is a fairly large place, but it has more of a pub than a beer hall. Very nicely finished and clean. We stopped in on the evening of March 19, after dinner... but it looks like it'd be a decent place to eat as well.

I had both their Weizens and a Celebrator (vom-fass), all of which were a real treat. They had great pretzels, and my wife had a nice desert as well.

They were serving a helles lager from a wooden cask, and I'm still kicking myself for not trying it!

I miss those Bavarian pretzels!

Found my notes on this one the other day.

I went here after having dinner at the Hofbrauhaus across the street with the hopes of having a Celebrator draught or two or three, but alas they were out (this being sometime in early november, the date however escapes me). The atmosphere was mostly dead and it was a saturday evening. The only people around were traveling businessmen drinking by themselves.

The whole atmosphere seem geared for business travelers not for locals, beer lovers, or anyone who enjoys a pub like atmosphere. In short, it does not compare to the atmosphere of the city's brewhalls but I have a feeling it was never meant to.

The food menu looked extensive but since I was just coming from dinner I didnt give it much more than a glance. Their were five or so offerings on tap but I only tried one which I thought was okay but I had expected better.

Service was fairly good. The waiter, as he wasnt busy, waited and served us promptly. He was friendly and was happy to make some small talk, a rarity in itself in Germany.
