Unfortunately, we were a little bit late and we couldn't try the potato salad. We just had fish and beer, but the fish tasted amazing and the place and the staff were nice. Definitely we will be back!

I would say this is a very "typical" Bavarian restaurant. We had a great meal - basic, fresh, local food. Good value for money. The service was very good. We went quite early and were lucky to get a table - it would probably be a good idea to make a reservation as it did get pretty busy. We noticed that there were a lot of locals at the restaurant which is always a good sign. It is slightly off the beaten track, but no trouble to get to - just follow the signs from the main road. I can highly recommend it for a no frills, authentic meal.

I don't know how often they do it, but it was really delicious, with several kinds of meat, loads of sauces, and some vegetarian things too (I'm not a vegetarian, so I didn't really try any of them). Salads and desserts as well. The wines by the glass were decent. It was just under € 30 per person, not including the drinks.

Wer unkompliziert, aber gut speisen, sich dabei unterhalten und auch ein wenig amüsieren will, ist in der HACIENDA genau richtig. Rund 30 Tapas, serviert auf Cazuelas, den original spanischen Tonschälchen, stehen in der Vitrine am Tresen zur Auswahl. Zubereitet werden sie jeweils frisch in der Küche. Neben den typischen Tapas wie Jamon Serrano, Gambas al ajillo und Albondigas finden Sie auch neue Kreationen wie Pintxo Mallorquin, unser eigenes, nach Hausrezept gebackenes Hacienda-Brot mit Ziegenkäse, pikanter Sobrasada und Honig.
We liked this Tapas bar with its friendly staff. It gave us a nice break from German and Austrian food. We specially liked the bread, alolio, chamon (Spanish great smoked ham.

Nice little place. The only trouble we had was that all of the Seating outdoors was smoking. We sat down outdoors since it was such a nice day. Then others come by and enjoy their cigarettes next to us, which is a problem in all of Germany. I wish there was outdoor non-smoking. In doors was just too hot and stuffy.
Wifi was also not working

To put this in context: The area around the Chiemsee and the Chiemgau are well-known for the local Bavarian food which translates for many into "can't eat (because it is pork somehow meat-oriented food).
Quite a difference with the Verde which is between Prien center and Stock (where the lake is/boats go to the islands). It is very modern and contemporary Italian kitchen more of the upper end. Even if you are a vegetarian, you will find reasonable food. The interior is modern, functional and has a style on its own.
Try the homemade pasta and avoid the (optional) meat that can come with it. Take a soup as a starter. Cosa dolce is classic Italian as well - usual suspects like Tiramisu.
Btw I am a local person but still write this in English for the benefit of a wider community that I hope comes to visit this part of Europe.

Regionale Spezialitäten wie Fisch (auch Raritäten)aus dem Chiemsee direkt vom Fischer um die Ecke, am See direkt gelegen, Empfehlung des "Feinschmeckers"
20 minutes walk from the port, a nice restaurant with lake view from its terrase at quiet location.
We have been there for lunch (terrase) and dinner (inside).
The selection of fish is the best in the city. You can choose either from the menu or fingerpointing the fresh whole lake fish from the icy tray.
I took local beer, my wife took a glass of the perfect local white vine.

We spent one night in Prien so we wanted to make it count, and this place fit the bill.
We had the Jung.... I forget its German name but it is pork with bread dumpling and cabbage salad. My husband ordered the same. As I'd heard the potato salad was great thanks to Trip Advisor, I asked for some and the waitress said she'd do one with cabbage salad and one with potato salad.
The dish was absolutely delectable! The pork was fantastic, the bread dumpling was something I'd never had before so I have no frame of reference but it was a great accompaniment. Cabbage salad is not something that sounds remotely appealing to me, in fact I would never usually choose it, but this salad totally changed my opinion of cabbage!! No, really! The potato salad is worth having, so is the cabbage one. We couldn't finish either plate though and left some of the salad.
I will tell you what is great about this place:
1. The location. It's gorgeous. It is not so ornate that it looks fancy, but it is a lovely place; it's basically a beer cellar I think that was made into a restaurant.
2. The service. I think the lady might have been Barbara - can't be sure but that name was on our receipt somewhere, so hopefully it was. She was so friendly and, even though I asked for a table in German, she knew we were English and brought English AND German menus, made it clear that she spoke English but also allowed me to try out my German (which is extremely limited but I try).
3. The prices are very reasonable - we paid €36 in total which was for the main course x 2, 2 beers, and 2 prosecco.
4. It was great to try German food, in a place frequented by German people.
Basically I cannot recommend this place enough. Prien is a very touristy place but mainly for German tourists (we haven't heard any other European nationalities during our entire stay, only German-speaking ones), so in some places we have struggled a bit for English menus etc. This is not one of those places, but nor does it compromise on its German traditions. It's a great place to sample the real Bavaria, and it's very welcoming. If we are ever in the area again, we'll be there in a shot.

Modern bavarian style restaurant. Good choice of food, good quality. Friendly personnel. Parking a bit difficult in Prien, although better at night. This is actually a hotel (Bayrischer Hof). Also very recommendable is the bar across the corridor, named "Fletz".

During the summer months the Chiemsee gets really overcrowded and the traffic and hordes of people can be overwhelming. Schlosswirtschaft in the tiny village of Wildenwart
is a pleasant diversion. Just a few minutes from the lake lies a cute biergarten and a very attractive restaurant. The menu isn't large but everyone can find something to their liking.
The Waitstaff is friendly and attentive. Prices are reasonable given the quality of the food and the attention to detail.
