The Andechser am Dom restaurant/wirtshaus/tavern is special in many ways. It is relatively small compared to the other popular places serving traditional Bavarian cuisine in central Munich, nevertheless it is often the choice of celebrities, businessman and politicians visiting the Bavarian capital. Another thing which makes it a bit different, is the beer served. Andechser beer comes from the eponymous Monastery at the Ammersee Lake near Munich. The brewery is run by the monks of Andechs Abbey, a priory of St. Boniface's Abbey, a Benedictine abbey situated 40 km away in Munich.
You can meet all of Munich at the cocktail tables under the arcades, enjoying traditional Bavarian dishes, beef tartare, veal meatloaf, and the Wiener Schnitzel, which is just as it should be: a paper-thin steak in crispy batter, with a savoury potato-arugula salad.
Since family Krätz (Hippodrom tent at the Oktoberfest and more) started running the Andechser am Dom in 1994 the restaurant has managed to stand for Bavarian tradition and modern Bavarian hospitality. A traditional quaint vaulted cellar, slight allusions to the monastic name patron and old floor tiles from Munich’s Army Museum combined with impressive ceiling paintings from the contemporary muralist Rainer Maria Latzke make this place unique. Feinschmecker, a renowned magazine for gastronomy, shares this opinion and has ranked Andechser am Dom as one of Germany’s Best 200 Restaurants. Considering all above, the prices at the restaurant are very reasonable.
"Bavarian Style Starters Platter" served on a wooden tray with whole-grain bread slices topped with chives and lard, salted radish, radishes, smoked black forest ham and “Obatzda” Bavarian cream cheese cost €6.50. Roast pork from the "Bavarian country" as a main course with grated potato dumplings, veal meatballs with potato rocket salad and roasted sausages (Rostbratwürstl) with sauerkraut served in a cast-iron pan costs €17.50. They also serve breakfast (from 10am-11:30am). The terrace offers magnificent view of the Frauenkirche.
