  • Good food. Fast service even though the tables almost full when we went. Table you should book in advance, at least on weekends. The food, of course, typical of German but if it is this place worth a visit.

  • My wife and I went to dinner at Weihenstephan Braustuberl but, having not booked, the restaurant was fully booked. Hijacked in the beer garden, so self service, I must say that I enjoyed. The choice of the courses was confused and without directions, while the girls involved in the distribution have been very hasty, verging on rudeness. I have visited many Biergarten in Munich and Bavaria but this was the worst. However the food and beer were very good and out of this I aligned the score of my evaluation.

  • One of the best beer gardens and breweries you might ever visit! Truly good food and beer. A great view of the Alps from the hilltop above the brewing school on a clear day. Enjoy!
  • WOW, thank the Beer God's for this place and the great meal I will consume... This hilltop location is fantastic! To top things off, it widely considered​ to be one of the oldest continuous operating brewries in the world.
