“New Cook Has Better Control”
Reviewed 27 November 2012

Before the new cook took over one could wait a good hour for the first course. No more, but perhaps because we were seven and had a pre-ordered menu. Still we arrived early (7:30p.m.) and didn't get out until 12:30. It was worth it though.

The amuse bouche was a little strange with flavours I could not identify. Then came two perfectly fried scallops in a light curry with a tiny banana. Next came a small piece of cod fillet sitting on a carrot cream with fennel – lovely, but then a strange celery flan thing came with clashing flavours that that I didn't understand, though everyone else found it wonderful.

The main course was a venison fillet with cumquats and beets, and a squirt of blood sausage, which sounded strange but tasted great, and the venison was cooked perfectly pink.

The dessert was another strange thing, chocolate and black olives. I am an adventurous eater and like strange combinations, but the amuse bouche ( a foamy truffle sauce with a hard piece of veggie under it) and the dessert were not just strange, but somehow the flavours did not harmonise for my taste.

The wine pairing was excellent. The sommeliere is a lady who really knows her stuff.

Get there early. Once it fills up the kitchen scrambles to keep up I have the feeling.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed 13 November 2012

We had high expectations and Restaurant Terrine did fulfill them.
We ordered Chefs menu(6 courses) and wine menu.
The wine did match the food perfectly for all courses.
If you want a culinary adventure, this is the place for you.

“Youthful enthusiasm and a great result”
Reviewed 17 September 2012

First point - this is down a passage by 89 Amalienstrasse, rather than on the main street. But once we'd found it, we were caught up in the enthusiasm of the young staff and chefs. Great food - the vichyssoise is just perfect, and the staff were full of good comments and advice In advance. The very young wine waiter was great - happy to talk enthusiastically about his list, and confident in his recommendations. A mistake - they brought something we hadn't ordered - was swiftly rectified, and if anything they apologised too often afterwards, but that is hardly something to spoil an evening. Really good, a quality part of a great city.

“Excellent restaurant”
Reviewed 13 September 2012 via mobile

We went for the full menu. The Chef was very inspired and surprised us in a positive way. Food was brillant and each course came with a different glass of wine. Wine was from Germany, France and Spain - top quality each time. A great place to have a fantastic dinner !

“very overrated”
Reviewed 7 June 2012

i had high expectations, after all this is deemed one of the gourmet venues of munich.

no clue why and how they came to this fame, i found this place to be extremely mediocre and way below what u would expect of a famous restaurant.

given the high prices, i would have expected to get a "culinary explosion" on my tastebuds, but that was absolutely not the case. my beef was over-seasoned, very disappointing overall.
