Alter Wirt, beside Munich’s Isar River, offers traditional Bavarian dishes, like oven roast pork in dark beer sauce and marinated free range steaks. However, it also serves dishes from around the world, like enchiladas, fajitas and an assortment of homemade burgers. The menu changes regularly, with themed days like ‘American BBQ’ and ‘Schnitzel massacre’. Outside, there is a cosy beer garden and a kids’ play area. Not only this, but lodgings are available upstairs in case the eating, drinking and merriment ends up continuing until the wee hours of the morning.
