'I need to see your I.D.' said the Security staff in an unfriendly tone. Really? It has been over a decade since someone asked me that. I realised they were just doing their job, but it still left me very annoyed.
My mood was immediately placated by the prompt and friendly service of a waiter with his European accent. For main, I ordered a haus specialty, crackling roasted pork belly. A generous portion of pork belly arrived with potatoes and red cabbage on the side. It was delicious! The meat was tender with the perfect crispy crackling. For dessert, I ordered apple strudel with fresh cream. Again yum - it was warm with tasty apple pieces.
The atmosphere is vibrant and festive with a live Oom-Pah band. It can be loud close to the stage, so not quite the place for any deep and meaningful conservations. Beyond the front door, the service was polite and efficient.
I highly recommend Lowenbrau for its food (especially meat lovers) and atmosphere. (just don't forget your I.D.)
