If you look to test wine while eating very well and in a relax but very confortable and nice atomosphere, this is the place to be. Not far away from the main central station and belonging to a very good hotel (Excelsior)

I happened upon this place trolling around the internet as I do....so I booked us in for a late lunch during the Christmas Market season. Luckily I booked as the place was absolutely full and it was an utter delight. I had venison ragout with pasta, my husband had venison cooked rare with a beautiful sweet sour sauce. Both dishes...

Ate here for one night. Was a really nice experience with really good service. Would next time reserve a place at the bar, as the other tables are a little close to each other for my liking. The menu is varied, and ithas a really nice atmosphere. Would go back.

We went to Geisel's upon a recommendation form a friend and since we always try something new in the culinary scene of Munich. Munich is all about the ever changing "hippest part of town", but the central area has never made it onto that list after the 70's, so I had mixed feeling regarding the location. And boy was I...

My husband and I went to Geisel's Vinothek for dinner on a Sunday night earlier this month. It has good reviews on here and in most guidebooks, and they are thoroughly deserved. Munich is justly famed for its sausages and pork knuckle, but this is a good place to go if you'd like to try something a bit different. It... More

The cuisine is more Italian than Bavarian but what makes it unique is really the very strong Bavarian influence in what could be considered haute fusion cuisine. The dishes are inventive yet taste consistently fantastic and are superbly executed.

Had dinner twice there in July. Generally good solid Italian fare, with some imaginative dishes. Seldom a disappointment. Make sure that you keep control over your own wine and water bottles because the one complaint is that they keep filling your glass in an attempt to increase the bill. Female staff is generally more pleasant than the young men.
