Munich is not, to put it mildly, at the forefront of gastronomic trends, so to find a place deliberately setting out to give a 70's feel is not, perhaps, likely to excite! And a look at the menu will not dispel any concerns. It looks as though it hasn't changed in decades! We ate on a Friday night, without having made a reservation, and were surprised at how few other diners there were. There is a small choice for each course of the set price three course menu. Some of the dishes wee not available, including the cheese platter which we were told had run out the night before and not been replenished. So it all augured rather badly.
But we were very pleasantly surprised by the food which was delicious and well presented. The ham and melon starter, for example, came with four different types of melon. The duck breast was tender and tasty, perhaps a bit overwhelmed by an over reduced gravy. The vegetables were particularly good, notably the potato dish which was flavoured with cumin and put us in mind of Rajasthan!
Desserts were traditional but delicious, and we were very pleased to find a Rioja with a bit of bottle age and at a reasonable price.
So it all goes to show that old fashioned food can be delicious if well cooked and presented. Highly recommended and very good value.
I should perhaps say that the service was very slow. Over an hour before the main course arrived. Some may not be troubled by this, and it was the holiday season so I cannot say if Otis a perennial problem.
