Located in the center of the old town tourist areas it attracts both locals and tourists. We ate in the rear "garden"area which was much nicer then the interior. Their prices are higher and their quality lower than other less central places.More

A ghastly tourist trap. Food quite good actually, but expect to be treated like a tourist. We walked down Perusastraße and spied this nice, traditional-looking restaurant. They didn't have a menu outside, but they had a few extracts, and photographs of the food. I never...More

It was an end of March Saturday and we were very cold because it was windy. The service could have been better: few waiters for a large crowd. Food was ok but they need more waiters outside.

Sehr geehrter Herr Rudolf G., Vielen Dank, dass Sie sich die Zeit genommen haben, Ihre Eindrücke Ihres Besuches in unserem Haus zu schildern. Jede Kritik ist für uns ein Ansporn unseren Service am Gast zu verbessern und zu optimieren. Es tut uns sehr leid, dass Ihr Aufenthalt einen negativen Eindruck bei Ihnen hinterlassen hat. Wir sind Ihrem Anliegen sofort nachgegangen und haben uns über den Hergang nochmal informiert. Unsere Mitarbeiter haben uns versichert, dass Ihnen die Kalbsleber selbstverständlich storniert und Ihnen dafür der Leberkäse im Ersatz serviert wurde. Die Geschmacklosigkeit der Rindsroulade können wir leider so nicht beurteilen. Wie Sie sicher verstehen, muss ein Restaurant jeden Geschmackssinn abdecken. Um sich bei Bedarf das Gericht persönlich ein wenig nachzuwürzen, sind bei uns auf jeden Tisch Salz- und Pfeffermühlen eingedeckt. Für das joviale Verhalten unseres Restaurantleiters möchten wir uns entschuldigen, wir stimmen Ihnen zu, dass man nicht jeden Gast sofort bayerisch herzlich anreden kann, sondern jedem der nötige Respekt entgegengebracht werden muss. Wir würden Sie gerne einladen, sich mit einem erneuten Besuch im Franziskaner, eine weitere Meinung zu bilden. Bitte lassen Sie mich von unseren Restaurantleitern rufen, wenn Sie wieder im Haus sind, ich freue mich jetzt schon, Sie persönlich begrüßen zu dürfen. Mit freundlichen Grüßen Melanie Wieser Reservierungsleitung
