Geisel's in Munich is a nice option

We stayed in Munich at the Konigshof Hotel in the center of the city and wanted a comfortable outdoor restaurant. We visited Geisel's twice since the service was excellent and the menu, while not large, had some very nice options including veal, fish and beef dinners. Very nice option.

This was the best restaurant I tried in Munich and it was very close to my hotel. The menu is really exciting with some terrific food combinations. For example, one night I had deer filled ravioli with a wonderful sauce covered over in cooked cherries.It was really something new and very good to eat. The prices are reasonable for this... More

We came to the restaurant because it was convenient, and were really glad we did. We did not have a reservation and were able to get a table immediately (it was around 10 p.m) Service was friendly, courteous, attentive but not overbearing. We did not feel rushed nor did we wait too long for our food. Our waiter knew a... More

Lovely small restaurant. Great food - I had the bruschetta and the vension and very professional service. Staff recommended a house red that was lovely and well priced. We tried to book again, two weeks later and gave them four days notice but they were already full. Do call or email in advance and the restaurant is worth ith.

I really recommend for the cuisine and the atmosphere. Cosy and welcoming like the rest of the hotel. The service was a bit slow ... but amiable. I had Cod on a bed of cabbage and leak along with polenta with nuts (almonds I believe) which is the best polenta i have ever had. Cod perfectly cooked and fondue of... More

We went based on other trip advisor reviews. Food was good but very limited. Very few items on the menu. With a husband with food allergies, he didn't have many choices. It's also a very small restaurant so you sit near lots of other people. Food was good but not sure I would go out of my way to visit... More

We stopped off here for a bit of luxury before boarding our sleeping car while en route from Budapest to London by train. And a bit of luxury we had. Like others before us we found ourselves eating in the hotel bar as the restaurant was fully booked, but the charm of the barman made up for the slight loss... More

So, after days of feeling hungry and unsatisfied with German cuisine, I found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and wasn't hungry anymore. I was staying close to the train station, and this was just a block away. Found it for convenience, but will go out of my way to return on my next trip. Small, warm and inviting, I actually took...

I have lunch here quite often, excellent varied menu and accompanying wines by the glass. Service is very attentive and helpful. Prices are quite high but I have never been dissapointed so would definitely return. One minor niggle is that some of the tables are too close together.
