I was discouraged by the so-to-say medieval interior, but the service and quality of food exceeded my expectations. I had boiled beef with horseraddish sauce and the meat was soft and the meal very tasty. As dessert we had pancakes with apple sauce and it was delicious as well. Recommend.

Been now for more than 10+ years on a regularly base in Bautzen. The moenchhof is certainly the best location in town. Being treated as a regular customer means remembering beverage wishes and getting seated even when the restaurant is fully booked. Definitely a recommendation.
