This is a special place. It was two "worlds": The garden and the restaurant. I say "worlds" because they are two entirely different places. This is the only place where the special beer "Paulaner Am Nockherberg" is served and you will also find all of Paulaner's beers.
The garden is a very relaxing place surrounded by trees. There you will find the fountain from which Paulaner's logo is inspired (a must-have picture :P). It's self-service and you will be able to enjoy your beer-and-sausages espacially during the spring.
The restaurant is a very luxurious place with very good food. VERY GOOD food. The catalogue is only in German, which I can't read, so I closed my eyes and chose a plate at random. Oh my god! I did it twice and again and again... Every single plate was just perfect!

I just had to try this place, especially after coming by here in 2001 and seeing a big hole in the ground (a massive fire had consumed the entire Keller :-( )! There is a huge Biergarten here, populated by numerous round and rectangular tables. Plenty of chestnut trees supply ample shade if needed, though there is a good sun/shade mix. A big Paulaner fountain sits near the bier stand, and there is a small area near the front with regular table service. Inside the new building, it's a spotless place with many wood tables and some sparkling copper kettles behind the bar (for show?). The bar itself is a long, brassy sucker, and there are a chit-load of old pictures, mugs, bier signs and such decorating the whole place. It's a very comfortable atmosphere, both inside and out, for a place that is pretty much brand spanking new. They offered about 7-8 biers here, including Salvator, Helles, Dunkles, a couple of Weizens, plus an only-available-here unfiltered Kellerbier. I got myself a litre of Salvator and a big-ass pretzel, and laxed for a while outside in the wonderful sunshine. Finally....!

This review is based on a visit I made here a year ago. I felt it was being short changed in the reviews. Though I understand what the other reviewers have said.
First off, completely non-related to my review, is that it's called Paulaner am Nockherberg now. The original Paulaner Keller burned down and so Paulaner had to build this establishment as a replacement.
Now the reason I really like this place is, they have Salvator on tap. This is the first doppelbock ever brewed, and having it here is better than any Salvator I've had in the US or out of a bottle in Germany. Not only this, but when I was in Munich it was the end of May and finding a doppelbock on tap was not a very common thing to come across that time of year. This is one reason I gave selection a 4 (this rating relevant to your typical Munich brew-'pub'...not a Haus der 111 Bier for example). On my visit at least, they had a different style of beer which was called something like the Nockherberger. The bartender described it as a sort of 'unfiltered helles'. In the larger places around Munich you don't often find unique one off brews like this, it is typically a Helles, then a weizen, then maybe a dunkles. So that made for a unique experience.
Visiting here we drank and had some food outside of which I don't remember the quality. I do remember food being somewhat expensive, beer being a little bit more but not horrible. It was a very dead summer saturday evening so the place was mostly empty. Shows how popular it must be! We found ourselves hanging out in the empty restaurant/bar area and talking to the bartender and owner for an hour or two. I personally found the sparkly clean interior to be quite nice and the gold colored vat with pipes very appealing. The table/restaurant settup looked deterring and untraditional though. All I can say is if you want something rustic and traditional then don't go to a place that just burned down a couple years ago. There is a huge difference between this establishment and a place you would find in the US however.
The bartender slipped me some extra Salvator and on my way out a half-krug to take with me. The manager was a nice guy as well and had some great stories about starkbier fest.
If you want fresh Salvator go here. If you just want Paulaner beer there are better places around town that are easier to find. If you just want beer, skip this place. There's also a playground if you have kids with you.

Went on a Wednesday night. The Biergarten was packed but some of my party wanted to go to the Restaurant which was empty.
The didn't have the Nockherberg Kellerbier which was lame. But Instead I had a maß of Salvator which more than made up for it.
It is a very rity-type Restaurant. I got the deer which was tasty. Another person got this crazy desert. They gave you plenty o sides to offset the expensive food prices.
All in all this place isn't that bad. It is a bit of a walk from public transportation so keep that in mind.

The Paulaner Brewery, Beer Gardens and Restaurant are a great place to have a beer and food, though might be considered a bit 'up-market' in comparison to other beer gardens and bars - being their showplace. Tram 27 will take you there from Karlsplatz, get off at Ost-friedhof, then walk back over the railway line and you can't miss the entrance on the right.
We went in the later evening, and even in the darkness the beer garden was busy, and they have a self service and buffet meal arrangements for outside. The inside Restaurant is very smart, and an enormous place, with plenty of seating at tables (usually for 6-8 as is common) We had quick service, and an English Menu was available. We had the Nockherberg Keller beer and thought it very good, though have to say I prefered the Maibock which was also available at the time of our visit (May 2009) The food, in generous portions and speedy service was good and fair value for Munich prices.
We really enjoyed this palace to beer, though think I would prefer to visit at daytime in sunshine, when the beer garden would be a pleasant place to sit and relax too, as well as having the option of the more upmarket restaurant.
Another place to add to the Munich must visits!

Visited on the afternoon of 30/09/2010.
We caught the Tram 25 from Einsteinstrasse as we visited Unionsbrau beforehand, this took about 10 mins.
The place is very much divided in 2 worlds as described in previous reviews. Unfortunately on this visit the biergarten was closed, it was probably too chilly anyways.
Inside, the restaurant is very grand. Pale yellow walls with lovely rich teak polished tables. Dispensing area is toward the back with some shiny coppers. There seems to be more rooms toward the back and maybe upstairs? Didnt investigate.
Place was pretty quiet, some locals enjoying pre-Fest bier, a group of people who may have attended a funeral and some other lone drinkers.
Came for the Nockherberg kelleriber and it was delicious, served in its branded glassware in excellent condition. Didnt manage to try the food unfortunately.
Service was pretty average, we had sat down at a clearly visible table in the middle of the main room and still had to flag someone down after 10 mins. Same happened when we wanted another beer or the bill. They seemed more interested in swanning around looking important.
Selection was excellents with helles,dunkel,hefeweizen,dunkelweizen,Nockherberger kellerbier and Salvator all on tap. I was hoping to find Roggenbier but unfortunately they didnt have it.
Overall, i loved the building and i can imagine the biergarten being wonderful place in summer. However the service did let the place down. A nice place to sample the best that Paulaner has to offer (in terms of beer!)
