We enjoyed an excellent tasting menu with some fantastic wine pairings. The atmosphere was lovely, traditional and romantic but also lively. Service was faultless and topped off with a complimentary glass of bubbly. Highly recommended.

We tried the soup, the main course of fish and the main course of meat. Everything was very delicious , with a particular taste. It was a bit expensive but is always like this when you want something more special .

Really nice atmosphere. I was expecting a lot, but was disappointed in the food and the prices are just too high for what you get. Glass of Sancere (200ml) was Euro 11! Plate of penne arabiata was around Euro 7. Not that expensive, but still disappointing. I also had some bread with olive pate - two types but tasted the... More

We had a lovely evening. The food was very good, as well as the matching wines. Good value for money. We called last minute to try a booking for the same evening. They were fully booked from 8pm onwards, but were able to accommodate us for a early dinner from 6:30-8, which worked out just fine.

We sat at the bar and we're delighted with a good service. Interested in white whines we were offered to taste three options until we chose the one we wanted. Had a small plate of canapés (5) that were enjoyable. Price is expensive but we enjoyed it.

Gorgeous restaurant attached to hotel excelsior. Lovely staff and tasty & delightful food we booked by going there during the afternoon. Li Ucky we did as it was fully booked out. Many Germans eating here at this fine boutique wine restaurant. Wine prices are high but worth it

A wonderful Bavarian setting greets you when entering this lovely small restaurant. The food is always superb and the kitchen is open and willing to improvise with what they got at hand! And the wine choices, just sublime! Drank a bottle of Cote du Rhone 2006 Vinsobres von Perrin at €35 with our wonderful pasta dishes no cheese! Delightful!

Dieses Weinrestaurant und Weinbar im Herzen Munchens teilt mit seinen Gasten eine grosse Leidenschaft: die Begeisterung fur gutes Essen und ausgezeichnete Weine. Bis zu 20 Rebsorten im offenen Ausschank und rund 700 Flaschenweine aus aller Welt bieten eine Auswahl, bei der kein Wunsch unerfullt bleibt. Das gilt auch fur die Kulinarik: In Geisel's Vinothek weiss man mit hausgemachten Pasta, frisch geschnittenem San Daniele Schinken und den besten Gerichten aus der mediterran angehauchten, bayerischen Kuche zu uberzeugen. Gastgeber der Vinothek in Munchen Robert Zeller ist ubrigens dafur bekannt, unter den offenen Weinen stets eine Auswahl sehr hochkaratiger Tropfen bereit zu halten.
