Best Restaurants In Munich

Restaurant 181

Restaurant 181, Munich: Menu, Prices & Ratings | Restaurant Ranking

As the name suggests, Restaurant 181 is situated 181 meters above to ground in the city’s striking Olympic Tower. Naturally, the views across Munich are stunning with the restaurant slowly revolving to ensure a truly 360-degree experience.

The food is certainly a match for the location. Dinner is spread across two sittings with the sunset dinner taking place at 6pm. For this, the restaurant have devised a dedicated Sunset Menu, which is stripped back to three courses and designed for those wishing to take in the views at the most beautiful time of day. The Feinschmecker Menu allows for a more fine dining experience and is served from 8pm onwards. The offerings change regularly to make best use of seasonal ingredients.

Restaurant Broeding

Broeding adheres to an innovative concept: diners feast on a six-course menu that is changed every night. The owners have not deviated from this structure since opening the restaurant back in 1990, and Broeding has steadily grown in popularity, as visitors are endlessly enamored with its unique dining experience. Head Chef and co-owner Manuel Reheis meticulously creates the menu from scratch six days a week, then the hospitable staff often tell the story of how the dishes were formed to the guests on the night.

Additionally, Broeding is passionate about wine – especially Austrian wine – as demonstrated through the sommeliers on staff, tasked with the important duty of choosing the wines that will complement the daily dishes.

Restaurant Mark’s

The fact that you have to enter this Michelin-starred restaurant via a marble staircase indicates the level of elegance that permeates the enchanting dining experience. Dinner at Restaurant Mark’s begins with an amuse-bouche that will leave diners expectant for the main course. Executive Chef, German Simon Larese’s modern French cooking excites, while his dedication to delivering a truly authentic meal is clear, as the ingredients are transported straight from Brittany and Normandy.

An example of his exquisite cooking is fillet of sea bass supplemented with caramelized cucumbers, romanesco, butter potatoes, salicornia and tomato stock. To conclude the night, diners are normally presented with handmade sweets as a gift.

Gratitude

Gratitude is a vegan restaurant located in the heart of elegant Schwabing, easily reached by public transport. With a carefully curated selection of healthy, environmentally conscious and animal-friendly food, the servings are large, prices are fair.

The restaurant keenly promotes locally sourced products, as well as sustainable farming, by forming relationships with local farmers. Chef Patrick Janoud thinks up a new menu every day, while ensuring that Gratitude continues to cater for those seeking to stick to a raw vegan diet. Its specials include items such as curry, risotto, burritos and tempeh chili dishes. Gratitude is an alternative place to eat, for both vegans and meat-lovers alike, and is well worth a visit.

Tian 

Tian Tian | Restaurant | Time Out Munich

Tian wows its guests with striking creations, unique taste combinations and just the right amount of foam. Although every dish is vegetarian, this isn’t the emphasis of this smart Michelin-star restaurant in the city centre. The menu focuses on rare or unusual ingredients, such as black salsify or wild cauliflower, and works with their distinctive tastes and textures to offer something new. Diners can choose the set menu, ranging from four to six courses, or go á la carte. The more dishes the better though. For a lower starting price, but still an interesting selection, visit Tian for lunch.

Der Pschorr 

For a typical Bavarian Wirtshaus where the plates are piled high and the waiters fly past you at speed, balancing heavily-laden trays on the palms of their hands, head to Der Pschorr. They serve Hacker-Pschorr beer and classic dishes made with regional and seasonal products. The cold platters (Brotzeit), complete with an obligatory radish, are great for sharing – the cheese version offering an irresistible selection from a local dairy located close to Lake Tegernsee. Sit outside to watch the world go by or enjoy the buzz that ricochets between the arches and pillars inside.

Pescheria 

View the menu at Pescheria, Munich

Combining Portuguese wall tiles and industrial-style lamps to create this self-defined “fish pub”, Pescheria brings some Iberian flair to the city. On the menu, you’ll find risotto, pasta dishes and a mean fish soup, but for the full experience, you need to select your own fish from the large catch lying on ice near the entrance. Your choice will be prepared on a lava-rock barbecue, served Provencal-style or baked in a salt crust (on request). Drop by during the day for their €10 lunch menu, which includes a tempting salad buffet. This is one of the best restaurants in Munich you should not miss.
