Wide choice of food

We had a couple of hours to spare whilst in Munich changing trains and we headed out of the station looking for food. We saw a department store "Karstadt" and wondered if there was a restaurant inside. Hiding up on the top floor was a wonderful restaurant. Mostly self service although some... read more

Rich buffet options, open buffet choises, many salads, typical beer selections. There is a good environment in the restaurant. Piano players' elegant music and delecious foods. Very central, at the roof of Karstadt department store. I strongly suggest.

As we were walking the city center of Munich, we were undecided about lunch. After walking to the top floor of a high-end department store, we found Le Buffet! We ate here before at a department store in Berlin. They have a selection of food to wet your appetite which include salads, Asian, Italian, German, and other traditional flairs. Just... More

It is possible you will never go to this place unless someone tells you about it. It is in a shopping center, the Oberpollinger a few blocks from Karlsplatz. The terrace views are great, the cafeteria is very elegant and it has a bit of everything. Freshly pressed juices and all sorts of drinks are cheap for that location. Expect... More

This buffet style restaurant in the top floor of a pretty fancy and expensive department store is definitely a hidden gem. Tons of great food to select from, done al la carte, some plates by weight. A great place for breakfast or brunch!

LeBuffet is a self service food court at Oberpollinger Munich and has a very good spread of options freshly prepared in front of your eyes! We like this place for its wide variety of buffet items ranging from Asian to Bavarian to Continental food and equally good spread of mouth watering cakes and pastries. If you are tired shopping at... More

We visited the restaurant for lunch while shopping. It is laid out well, but looked quite "messy" as it turned out you are expected to self clear your tables (a la McDonalds) and some tables had been cleared and those that had had not been been wiped down. We had steaks and lamb cooked while we waited. The meat was... More

For the visitor to Munich, the wide range of restaurants and local menus can be a problem. If you don't mind self service, and food that can be cooked just for you, then the Le Buffet can be the solution. A 100 metres from Karlsplatz (Stachus) is the Oberpollinger building, restaurant on the 5th floor. Asian food, steaks, fish, vegetables,... More
