The waiter felix went out of his way to accommodate our request for the Black Reiseling. The starter plate and the Roast Beef dinner was great.

We ate at this restaurant a couple of nights ago based on the reviews on this website and we were not disappointed. It was a refreshing change from the tyypical restaurants we ate at in the south. We loved the atmosphere......very cosy and warm. The restaurant is on the small side and adjoins a hotel, so make reservations. The menu... More

Based on Trip Advisor reviews, decided to take the family (four of us) on a special dinner (instead of the beerhalls and pizza we had been doing) and check out Geisel's. The reviews were just what we were looking for - good, simple food, tasty, in a real restaurant. We must have hit a blip, but our experience was terrible.... More

I had researched this restaurant before travelling to Munich and decided we should go based on the reviews. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent, well thought out and it looked superb on the plate. It was tasty, full of flavour and plentiful. We were pleasantly surprised when the bill arrived since we had lots of wine.

My wife had been here 10 years ago and when we visited, seemed the menu had not changed much and for good reason. The restaurant serve simple food but with quality ingredients and perfectly cooked.

My other half booked the Vinothek for our wedding anniversary on a recent trip to Munich. The choice of wine is of course fantastic, and we had 3 courses that could be chosen from anywhere on the menu.

This was the best food experience we've had in a long time. Very original recipes, and everything we had was spectacularly flavorful and delicious. Pleasant atmosphere outside accompanied by friendly, helpful service. We'll definitely be back on every trip to Munich.

I have now eaten three times in the delightful ambience of this restaurant, easily reached wherever you lodge in Munich. The food is excellent with, as you would expect, a wide choice of wines.
