Great food in a crowded place.

Wow. The food was amazing in this place. For starters we had a plate full of small bites of exotic meat and South african/Namibian specialities. And as our main dish we had the safari plate with steaks of crocodile, zebra and Namibian beef. And that beef... It was amazing. One of the best pieces of... read more

Quality of food was great. All kinds of exotic meats that you can try. It was a very different experience for us.The service was great as well. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who would like to try something out of the ordinary. Would definitely visit again if in Munich.

While looking for a decent place to get a nice, maybe a bit exotic dinner, I decided to check the TripAdvisor recommendations once again. And without disappointment! The Savanna is a rather small, but cosy restaurant in central Munich. An impressive decoration on the outside marks the otherwise well hidden entrance and the beautiful interior decoration creates that South African... More

We were here twice during our vacation. The meat is incredible>! We also recommend the cocktails, really well made and with a wide choice.

We booked the restaurant for our daughter's 21st birthday party. Carina and Johan were perfect hosts, and went out of their way to help us plan a spectacular birthday celebration that everyone will remember for many years to come. The food was out of this world, so divine! We had a number of vegetarians in our party, and they all... More

The place is cosy, cocktails were good (and not very strong in alcohol, which suits me but may not be to everyone's liking) and there was a nice choice of everything in the menu. Few vegetarian dishes, but South African cooking is mainly about eating lots of meat, so not necessarily the ideal place to go if you're vegetarian. We... More

So was mine vegetarian version of local dish. The staff was extraordinary friendly and helpful. Rating 4/5 due to long waiting time. Anyhow, this place is very recommended... More

We were in Munich for one night and enjoyed a pleasant meal here. The menu is varied and includes the likes of crocodile and ostrich steaks. I chose the ostrich and wasn't disappointed. I also enjoyed a nice apricot pudding. There are lots of South African items on the menu if you go for that sort of thing. Outside seating... More

Wandering around looking for something different one evening we stumbled across this place, and we were so happy we did (it's hard to miss with a big elephant head above the door but is somewhat tucked away). The range of meats on offer are unlike anywhere else, the vegetarian options are delicious, and they serve cider which you don't find... More
