Where We Ate

We had good experiences eating out while we were on our trip. Everywhere we went, entree portions were pretty generous. Unless my husband or I wanted to eat pretty lightly, our default mode was to order 2 entrees and share them with my daughter. If she didn't like them, or if it seemed like we needed more food, we would order more. As a result, even though many places had children's menus, we rarely ordered off of them. Highchairs were fairly common, although my daughter pretty much decided that she was over using them earlier in the summer. Menus in English were also available just about everywhere, which was a big help.

Here's a list of some of the places we liked. If I remember whether there was a children's menu, I mention it.



This restaurant has 3 Munich locations. We ate at their Sendlinger Tor location across the street from the Motel One. I liked their lasagna. They have a nice selection of ice cream and other desserts, too. No children's menu.

This is Munich's most touristy beer garden, located in the center of town. It was packed when we went, but the place is huge, so we found a table without waiting. In contrast to beer tents at festivals in the US, they serve full meals. There is no children's menu, but my daughter was quite happy eating their huge--and delicious--pretzels and sampling my husband's and my food. I recommend the Bavarian onion soup. As for the beer, it was excellent. My husband and I liked the Russ'ns, a mix of wheat beer and lemonade.

Kamps Backstube

We went to the Sendlinger Tor location of this bakery as a cheaper alternative to the breakfast at the Motel One. We recommend the ham and cheese croissants! No children's menu, as this is a bakery. They do have a few tables if you want to eat there, though.

Bears & Friends

Ok, so this is not really a restaurant, but they do sell food--gummi food, that is! We enjoyed seeing the wide assortment of gummi bears, dinosaurs, etc. You can even buy a little variety pack with gummi bears, dogs, rings, mushrooms, and cellos (or string basses. Either way, it's fun!). That pack made for an entertaining snack on the flight home.

Hoch Tirol

The food was fine, but our favorite feature of this restaurant was the playground. There was a children's menu if I remember correctly, but my daughter and I shared a pizza. It was good: it had a thin crust and was maybe 10" in size. My husband and I also tasted some beer that was apparently from the oldest brewery in the world.

Gasthof Dorfwirt

This place was described to us as a steakhouse. There was steak, but there were lots of other non-beef items. I had beef stroganoff one night and pork in a cream sauce the next. Both were good. There was a children's menu, but my daughter was happy sharing my food along with my husband's schnitzel and fries. We also enjoyed an ice cream sundae with lots of different kinds of fruit.

Gasthof Post

I may have given the Gasthof Post a less-than-stellar hotel review, but we had good experiences at their restaurant for both breakfast and dinner. I especially liked the Oberdrauburg cheese soup. This was the one place where my daughter ordered off the children's menu. She enjoyed her enormous portions of schnitzel and fries.

Rio di Pusteria, Italy

Gasthof (Albergo) Zur Linde

We had some fantastic pasta here: spaghetti carbonara and spaghetti bolognese. The gelato was great, too!

Restaurant Leonardo Da Vinci

This Italian place was one of the restaurants closest to the Hilton. The pastas we had here were fine, though not memorable. It won points with us for the convenience, being more affordable than the Hilton's restaurant, and being better than the other restaurant that was nearby. No children's menu. No website.

Cafe-Restaurant Hungerburg (?)

I think, but am not 100% sure, that this is the name of the place where we stopped for tasty apple strudel in Hungerburg. This place is near the funiculuar station. No website.


Thanks for reading! Next I will review one of the Philadelphia airport play areas.
