“Great if you can find it”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

When we were close by our i-phone kept directing us to Aldi which was rather offputting. We must have walked past the restaurant at least twice before recognizing the upside down name outside , and even then we had trouble finding the door. Once inside you are in the bar and the very pleasant restaurant is upstairs. It is worth persevering with finding it as the food is excellent and the casually dressed waiters both friendly and professional. We had the 3 course meal for 40 euros each which is reasonable value although the wines are fairly expensive.

“A magician in the kitchen”
Reviewed 30 October 2013 via mobile

It's now the 4th or 5th time over a couple of years that I've been enjoying dinner at Salt and I have to admit I'm a bit ashamed not to have written anything over it yet... It's quite rare that a place keeps a consistent high quality and creativity over time, without getting lost into the hype.

And this is the case of 'Salt' and the professional persons making this adress :)

The choice is between 2-3 dishes for each course and you have different tasting options starting from 3 choices.

Already on the menu, regularly updated according to seasons offer, the idea of tastes combinations awakens curiosity.

Then arrives the plate, extremely well presented, in a reasonable portion (specially considering the additional mise-en-bouche that comes as nice surprise)...and there all the genius of the Chef takes shape: audacious combinations of tastes, shapes and textures suggesting a flavour reveal another one, perfectly fitting.

Tradition meets long haul destinations flavours and plays mixing up your senses.

A hint of espumas -without exceeding into 'molecular'- gives the final magic touch to the very first quality carefully selected and respectfully handled products, for the total happiness of my neurones and taste buds.

The service, discreet, well timed and professional, makes the link for a complete - fully worth the expense- perfect experience..that one wants to repeat again and again... :)

“Outstanding dining experience - Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

This was truly one of the best meals I have ever had. The food was absolutely delicious, the service fantastic, and the atmosphere perfect. You have to really search out Salt, it is well hidden and when you are outside it was not obvious as there was a drape over the door. But when you get inside, you get a great welcome. The staff were absolutely on the ball, very attentive but also friendly and chatty. The food though was truly delicious. Great value for money as well, only e40 for 3 courses. Not only would I go back, this restaurant gives me a reason to go back to Munich! We would never have found Salt without Trip Advisor so well done and thanks Trip Advisor and well done and thanks Salt!

“A great restaurant”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

Was our last night in Munich, and went hear based on other Trip Advisor reviews. A bit out of the way and tucked around a corner, but well worth the effort to find. European chic atmosphere, quiet jazz in the background, and a widely varied menu and attentive, English-fluent service. Food was beautifully presented and superbly prepared - was one of the top two meals we had on a three country tour of Europe. Opted for the 3 course prix fix at 40 euros - duck breast with Roquefort spaetzel and pears was superb, and their version of bouillabaisse is spectacular - the base is a lobster bisque that is to die for. Highly recommend this one.

“Great food!”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

I went here on the recommendation of a client after we finished our meeting, and thought it was great. The service was quick and the menu was great - large selection of food for a decent price.
