Batzenhäusl has three levels inside which overlook their Biergarten-- which was set up for the approaching Christmastime with Glühwein and other hot drinks.
We were seated on the third level and though the restaurant’s other two levels were buzzing, the third level was much quieter. The all- wood surroundings lent a cosy feeling to the place and our chill from the cold weather quickly dissipated.
I tried a crème of mushroom soup and a Greek salad. The soup was very good, but the salad was just average. For me, a Greek salad is a kind of litmus test – are the ingredients just thrown together, or did the chef do a bit of magic by carefully balancing the tastes? Here, unfortunately, it was the former.
A couple of our group tried the Schwieneshaxen, which was crisp on the outside and good-tasting but nothing special. The bandnudels with Speck and a carbonara- type sauce were served piping hot and were very good. All the food was swerved up very quickly; we were early and the restaurant seemed to be expecting an onslaught of customers – they got it, it was no- seats- available after not too long.
My Weißbier reflected the distance from Bavaria, not measuring up very well. But the IPA and strong beers ordered by others in the group pleased them.
All in all, with the three levels and the outdoors, the restaurant is very large, but is nicely divided up so that it does not feel so large.
The restrooms were down two levels from our table, and were small. Imagine you are on a plane with 300 other passengers, they are continuously serving beer throughout the flight, and there are only four restrooms. There could be a bit of a wait.
All in all, the place is very attractive and the food and beer are good enough, it’s definitely worth a try.
