A very small beer selection but that includes their very nice Doppelbock. It was the only beer I tried but it was well worth the visit.In a nice location in the city center so not too far out of the way. I did not eat. The service was ok. It was quiet in the middle of the day. The menu looks like typical German fare. Reasonable priced for a city center place.

Beer only: Andechs Doppel Bock. The restaurant is located a couple blocks from Marienplatz (city center) at the back of the big twin-spired Church of Our Lady. It can be very hard to get a table as evening approaches. A great place to enjoy an excellent beer.

In Munich for a week on a work trip, I probably don't have time to visit Kloster Andechs, so this is supposed to be the next best thing. The place was a little hard to find, as I walked up and down Weinstrasse before figuring out it was actually on a sidestreet. The place was packed at 10 pm on a Saturday night. No seats anywhere, and they don't have a bar. You either sit at a table and the waitress comes around or you stand and flag down a waitress.
I stood in the very crowded room with all the people that were just drinking, not having dinner. A little smoky and pretty loud in there, but everyone was having a good time. I asked the waitress walking by for a Doppelbock Dunkel and she brought it fairly quickly. I was surprised that it was only 4 Euros for a 0.5 L glass. I had just paid 5,50 for lesser beers elsewhere around this area. The beer was extremely tasty and probably the best I've had of this style. I would have stayed longer but had already had a few before walking in here and it would have been better if they had a bar where I could have sat. I think I may go back tomorrow earlier and grab some food and try a couple more of their beers. I recommend this place if you're in Munich.

I was still feeling the effects of jet lag, and drinking four beers at Weisses Brauhaus was enough to knock me out for the afternoon. Here comes the evening, but I promise that I have enough charge for several rounds. Where do I turn? No, not that church, the church on the left. Ok, follow alongside it, boom! Two choices now, Andechser or Augustiner? Oh, I'm walking towards Andechser....
It was in the 40s, so I went straight inside looking for a seat. No, no seats. I'm going back outside on the patio for an empty seat. Lots of tables in front of the restaurant, half of them unoccupied at the time. There's a lot to look at in the surrounding area outside, most notably that big church. Wait, wait, wait, here comes a waitress. This would be a theme during my stay; polite and knowledgable, though a little slow to check my status.
Four beers available, all from the tap; helles, doppelbock dunkel, weiss, and dunkelweizen. Multiple sizes are offered for each beer, as is matching glassware. In general, the beer was very good, with the weiss, not the doppelbock, being my flavorite of the group. Half-liter pours run between €3.80-4.00, depending which beer you purchase.
If you don't have the resources to make a trip to the brewery itself (like I did), then consider Andechser am Dom your shortcut to Andechs beer.

The decor is authentic bavarian and is very comfortable. The place was crowded so we were seated in the basement which is like a cozy dungeon/wine cellar with heavy wooden tables and benches. The beer was great and the duck that I had there was top notch. Other member of my party had the saurbraten which was excellent as well. Like everywhere else in Munich, service was terrible. The wait staff are very slow and do not pay you much attention, but this should be over looked as all of germany seemed this way, beside the Lowenbrau place near the Viktulien market. Great Beers.... Great Food...

We were really looking forward to trying some Andescher beers and also getting some food. We got there around noon on the last Sunday in October and sat outside. It seemed to be busy enough in the outside area but there were plenty of open tables and at least five different servers outside. We sat down and waited...and waited...and waited some more.
A British family next to us said they had asked their waiter for the bill thirty minutes prior. The server had also gotten their food order horribly wrong. A couple German women who sat down at a nearby table ten minutes after we got there left after fifteen minutes of not being acknowledged.
After twenty-five minutes of not being acknowledged, my wife politely asked a server if we could have a couple menus. Fifteen minutes later (still no greeting or menus) we left and went to Augustiner. In summation, we waited forty minutes and were not even approached by any staff member. Their beers may be good, but it was obvious that on at least this day, the staff members were not interested in serving them to us or a number of other people. I really want to believe we just caught them on an off day.

My co-workers and I were hungry, and I've been pimping this place to them for weeks before coming on this business trip, so their expectations are high. I've never been at this restaurant myself, but I have been at the Kloster itself and it rocked, so how can this place dissapoint?
It didn't. We sat outside with a nice older German couple who even though were at dessert when we arrived stuck around with us to chat until we were done. That put off two of my co-workers who weren't used to being seated with strangers, but they eventually had a good time.
Menu is classical German fare, so pork, pork and more pork. Oh yeah. I was able to squeeze in a cheese plate for desert which was great.
Service was okay, considering the place was packed, both inside and out.
Beer selection was (obviously) from Andechs, and the Doppelbock was just excellent. The girls enjoyed their Weiss.
The dopplebock was just as good as at the Klosterbrauerei, the food was nice and the ambiance on the platz was cool. Highly recommended.
