“Very good, only one hiccup”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

We reserved online very easily. When we arrived at opening time and the time of our reservation, the place was pretty empty. By the time we finished our meal, it was full. We were by far the youngest couple there and likely the only foreigners. Very good service and food. Tasty, upscale versions of eastern euro comfort food. Only issue we had was when we got home and checked our credit card statement, they charged us twice. It looked like once for the meal and again for tip. we're accustomed to these two being charged together. It seemed strange.

“Great, great restaurant not to be missed!”
Reviewed 12 January 2014 via mobile

Halali is an exceptional restaurant. We found it on the Michelin guide, but It is by far underestimated by it. It would deserve at least one Michelin star instead of a plane mention. Food is traditional German but interpreted with outstanding talent and balance. We tried both the pre-set dinner menu and a personal choice form the tempting list. Everything was just excellent. My personal recommendation is the veal with porcini mushrooms, the home made noodles with truffle, an exquisite salmon "variation", an unbelievable beef tartare and the delicious apricot plum cake. The service was absolutely perfect, super attentive without being intrusive. Décor is so unique, traditional without being stiff, on the contrary, very cozy and intimate, elegant and warm. Price is very compelling.
We spend a great night in a wonderful atmosphere, tasting superb food. If you go to Munich don't miss Halali for any reasons.

“Top class restaurant!”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

This is a very fine German restaurant, with a traditional yet refined atmosphere and service, and superb food. The menu is a mix of traditional food with an updated touch, but far from the "trendy" concepts of "nouvelle cuisine" ("nothing in the plate, and all in the bill...").
It is not cheap, but top quality seldom is. Anyway, the prices are fair.

“Contender for best meal ever - DO NOT MISS!”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Halali (dinner) - Spectacular food, excellent service, incredible value! We had just come from two weeks in Italia and eaten some of the most amazing food ever, so the thought that we would experience fine dining with spectacular service and some of the best food of our lives in München...no way! Oh how wrong we were! My husband said this could very well be the best meal we’ve ever eaten (which, given that we’re foodies, is really saying something!) The service was also impeccable and the server had a wonderful warmth and sense of humor; what joyful experience. If you’re in München, DO NOT miss the chance to have a meal at Halali; you will be glad you did.
