Have eaten here on several occasions during the many frequent visits to Oberstdorf. The food has always been of a very high quality and the service friend and very professional. The menu has a good range of local dishes to chose from as well as a daily menu. The local trout is excellent as well as pork. There is also a good wine list. Perhaps one day we will stay as well!

After a long walk down from the Fellhorn, we found this little gem. Situated slightly above the valley, with a pretty garden and its own trout pond, it has plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. The menu offers a good selection, and the service was quick and friendly. I had the Kaiserschmarrn, which was very good, and the portion was big. My partner had a delicious soup.The restaurant is not in Oberstdorf itself, but near the Fellhorn cable car. You can get there by car, so it's also suitable for non-hikers.

Charming hotel, newly renovated with very comfortable rooms. Peter Strauss, owner and chef, sent us off with a bottle of white wine from his Rhineland vineyard. We left some valuables in the room safe and he arranged to mail it to us. Excellent breakfast with eggs to order and honey from the hive. Parking costs but is convenient. Located in a pedestrianized area is good, but trucks come roaring in from early morning until 10 am to load and unload bottles and supplies, heavy diesel engines clattering away. Otherwise, excellent stay.

We felt this was a disgrace. The food quality was just not good enough. The main course of beef in red wine sauce was just sliced cold meat with some gravy poured over it. Would not go there again in a month of Sundays

For a one Michelin star restaurant this is just not good enough. I would have been disappointed without the shiny star and with....well I was more than a little irritated in spending a precious evening here. All courses lacked clarity and perspective. The balance was out, sweetness to high, acidity too low, the beef (topside for goodness sakes!) was cooked sous vide so it was as dry as an old boot. Red, dry topside beef cooked sous vide in a Michelin starred restaurant? No, this is all wrong. The beef was cooked two ways and the braised version fared no better, a tough dry piece of sawdust in my mouth due to both completely unsuitable braising technique and part of the animal. The mini chocolate ice-cream on a stick had novelty value but was a kids dessert - the sweetness was completely overpowering rendering it to resemble something you buy in plastic at the grocery shop (i.e. a cheap commercial product due to the high sugar levels). The quince soup with poppy seed has to be the most revolting thing I've tasted in a very long while. I love Germany, I enjoy the food, I understand the balance of flavours in most cuisine varieties and respect and relish all of it when done well. This was just not. I cannot recall since being a 5 year old actually recoiling at something on my plate but that quince soup dessert did just that and we left as quickly as we could with it untouched. The atmosphere is tired and somewhat dated, the service was far from the sharp service that is at the "starred" level. We were staying in-house and for obvious reasons didn't return to Maximilians but enjoyed several evening meals in the beautiful village restaurants of Oberstdorf. Sorry if this review is tough but from my perspective it is honest.

Fast and friendly service in this newly remodeled restaurant. The place was packed with families and tourists, which is the main draw. Can be fun as a couple unless you are looking for something quiter. Live music by two funny guys. Despite the theme type atmosphere the food was stellar. Everything was cooked to perfection. I had fresh local trout and my new hubby had steak, both were melt in your mouth delicious. The prices were great too. Highly recommended to get you into the Bavarian spirit.

We only ate in Sachaâs once during our holiday, and the food here is good but not the best in town. However, we dropped in for a beer a few other occasions, as the friendly, helpful staff kindly gave us 1 hour free Internet connection while we enjoyed our beer.

Our USA-based family group (Oma, Opa, two adults, two kids (6&7) visited twice during our week in Oberstdorf - both times an excellent experience. Good beers (dark and light) and juices; schnitzels, Brauergulasch, sausages, apple dishes (strudel and ringe). Convenient location, comfortable outdoor seating, welcoming staff, English language available. If we'd been there longer, I'm certain we'd have made another appearance!

We loved our evening at Riegers. The service was spot on, really friendly and caring. The atmosphere was wonderful. Slightly modern still keeping the rustic charm befitting the town. We shared flammkuchen for entree....we LOVE flammkuchen so relished the chance! Perfectly crisp base, lovely topping, beautifully cooked and light as a feather. Main was venison for me and cooked to perfection with a lovely reduction sauce, perfectly cooked brussel sprouts and chewy parsnip. Seasonal, fresh and delicious. They served the noodles separately and I was happy for that as the dish didn't need it (in my opinion) the portion size was good as is. Portion sizes in Germany seem enormous! My husband had 200gms of rump steak cooked medium rare (you ask for it cooked "English" to get rare to medium rare in this part of Germany!). This dish was a bit of a let down for three simple reasons easy to correct. The steak was unrested so the blood drained onto the plate and mixed with the sauce to make for a pink look, not ideal. The mushroom sauce itself was just bland and needed a good dose of mushroom taste and acidity. The potatoes served with his dish were a bit oily and not very appetising. Just basic errors which I think were the result of a busy kitchen rather than an overall downfall in the cooking as my venison proved they know their stuff out back. So I would absolutely recommend Riegers. The wine list is small and very well priced, the staff really care and it's a great little restaurant we'd return to if we were staying longer.
