If the weather is good you have to sit here

Very nice restaurant, where in the early time you can have a delicious hot chocolate and you can enjoy the sun. It has modern design with large windows and a yard with tables in front of the plaza. Nice beer also and very kind staff.

Wonderful spot for Sunday breakfast or brunch inside the new Lenbachhaus Museum. Trendy buzzy atmosphere, excellent coffee, delicious cakes and a great variety of tasty breakfast menu options. Excellent service, highly recommended- with or without a museum visit.

WE had a very good lunch while visiting the museum. The cafe is crazy busy, noisy and tables seem to be on top of each other-- but as far as museum-cafe food goes, this place was in the top 10% (and I imagine we have eaten at well over 100). We had a simple risotto and a ravioli dish along... More

If you're looking for good Italian food in a building designed by one of Europe's greatest modern architects, this is a great option. Design by Sir Norman Foster, ELLA is a sleek, stylish building- inside and out. On a dreary Wednesday evening, it was sparsely populated, which diminished the potential vibe, but the food made up for any shortcomings. We... More

Visited in the afternoon on a weekend. Filled with pretentious locals. Found the service to be atrocious. Took forever just to get a menu. Then waited again yo place an order while the waiter played games not making eye contact. So I left. Sort of pathetic.

Truly wonderfull place for lunch in Munich. Great outdoor patio. Wonderful salads and a great cold potato soup. A great section of deserts to pick from. A great place to watch people.

It is a nice place for a quick bite. Quite and peaceful. The food was nice so the service. What I did not like that when ordered a salad it contained bacon and I did not notice that when it arrived they refuse to change it unless I pay for the new one!

Ist a pleasant place, outside on the terrace, to observe the Königsplatz and the classical gate and the toursits Walking round. It gives you a feel of grandesse - and a feel Munich is a "big City" - a global palyer... Food - cakes are ok, can not say much more, but all is a bit on the high side... More

My husband and I had a special 5-course dinner menu at ELLA which was Michelin-star quality, creativity and presentation. The service was excellent, the wine was exceptional, and the food was beautifully presented and top quality. Our meal at ELLA was almost as good as Michelin-star meals we've had in Munich and elsewhere.
