“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

Having read the reviews on tripadvisor, we booked in advance by e-mail and got an immediate response (albeit wholly in German). On the night, which was our first in Munich, we struggled to find the place as the street is too small to be on any of the local maps or Google. Four local police officers and several local residents couldn't help either; be warned!
However, once we did find the restaurant we were glad we had made the effort. Although smaller than we anticipated, the staff made us very welcome and there was a good atmosphere throughout. The food is very good, but not exceptional and the menu is fairly limited. Having said that, as Munich goes, it was not expensive so on the quality versus cost scale we rate it as being well worth a visit.

“Excellent food/service. Book in advance.”
Reviewed 14 November 2013 via mobile

The food was delicious, creative and filling.
I opted for the 3 course pick and mix meatball menu. €21 for 3 plates all with 1 large or 2 medium gourmet meatballs, side salad or vege and matched sauces.
Personal favorite was the duck meatball with potato pear ragout and cranberry mustard. Perfect mix of flavors.
The server was attentive, polite and able to speak English.
Very trendy little restaurant with quirky and homely decorations. Would highly recommend.

“Outstanding service”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor for this restaurant I emailed them approx 3 weeks before our trip to Munich to reserve a table. I mentioned that it was my boyfriends birthday so could we please have a nice table.

We arrived and were shown to a cosy table in the corner, really cute.

The service throughout the entire night was fantastic, without being intrusive. The food was plentiful (I felt bad for not being able to eat it all) and although we couldn't manage dessert, my boyfriend was bought a cupcake and was sung Happy Birthday to. Considering how long ago the booking was made I thought this was such a nice touch.

The Riesling was great, as was the schnapps!

Really cosy, intimate interior, beautiful decor. I was highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

“Absolutely wonderful !!”
Reviewed 9 November 2013 via mobile

Made a reservation online and mentioned that it was our 12th wedding anniversary.
We arrived to be shown to a table which had been decorated with flowers, candles and a lace banner congratulating us.
The service throughout was exceptional and the food matched the service. I had the best Goulash soup i have ever had ( and i have had it in Budapest & Prague). Wife had wonderful risotto and meatballs. I had the boiled beef with veg. The portions are good and prices very reasonable. Restaurant is situated just off the market in a lovely area.
We will definitely be back here, as it is now our favourite restaurant in Munich.

“Excellent food and atmosphere”
Reviewed 8 November 2013 via mobile

We had a lovely evening meal here during a long weekend in Munich. It is quite a small and intimate restaurant with amazing Bravarian food which was beautifully presented (and very large portions) and great beer. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. It also seemed very popular with locals too, which is always a good sign.

The only slight negative was that we had to share a 4 person table with another couple but even that didn't detract from the evening and the way we were seated round the table meant we didn't really impose on each other.
