Nice place, good staff, perfect menu...you can not ask for something more. I really enjoy my meal, from the beginning to the end! Taste the Schweinshaxe, you’ll be happy all meal long.

Set in a quInt tavern rather than beer hall setting. Highly recommend the Rostbratwurstel - a hearty lunch of grilled sausage and sauerkraut w/ the restaurant’s own beer!

Absolutely must order the Schweinhaxe, 1/2 or full. It is legitimately the best I've had. Service was good, our waiter was hilarious. Right around the corner from the Hofbrauhaus and town hall in Munchen. Must visit!

Schweinhaxe, does food ever get any better? I would visit for 2 meals a day when in Munich, except my wife forbids me due to her lack of enthusiasm for schweinhaxe. I have never had better!

This is my second time in the restaurant. I arrived especially with a friend to introduce him to the legendary and traditional food of the place, the service was excellent and courteous, the waiters always smiling and the food, just perfect!

10.5.18 I call this place “German Super Knuckles” because the joint as in the subject line refers to Pork Knuckle which is roasting every day at Haxnbauer. Only places that are a little better would be Podwale in Warsaw Poland 🇵🇱 or Salm Brau in...More

For years when I have been in Munich on business we always had a simple meal of schwein haxe at this site. It’s not elegant but it is excellent. You won’t get this meal in the USA

We ate here 2 times while in Munich for Oktoberfest. The food was good especially the pork knuckle. Service was excellent and the atmosphere reminds me of a typical German restaurant. Would highly recommend a trip if you’re in Munich.

Our old Munich city restaurant is part of a historical building, the Scholastikahaus, which was historically documented for the first time in the 14th century. The Kufflers renovated the restaurant elaborately. Today "Haxnbauer" is a popular meeting point for the established Munich population and guests from all corners of the world. At the grandiose Haxengrill delicately seasoned pork knuckles and veal joints ("Haxen") are tenderly grilled on the beech wood charcoal grill and served as a crispy unique delicacy. The knuckles are marinated 24 hours in a (secret!) Salt-herb mixture before they are grilled. The meat smells fantastic and with its unique taste, crispy crust and delicate meat definitely lives up to its promise. Tasty Munich specialities and modern dishes round off the offer at Haxnbauer in every respect.
