Perfect for AW or before dinner and you'll most likely end up rubbing shoulders with Munich's VIPs. The drinks are some of the best this town has to offer. A must!

There is hardly a better place in central Munich for a quick lunch. Quality is fantastic. The owner is allways in the kitchen - excellent sign. Tartar on Thursdays is allways a highlight. Also try their ginger lemonade.

We went to Schumann's for pre-theater drinks a few weeks back. We were surprised to find that every single table had a reserved sign on it and most of them remained empty during our 60 minute stay. Fortunately, we did find some seats at the bar. Before I could order, the barkeeper handed me a Hugo, which I had to... More

and pretention is still leftover from the late 80s although the bar has changed to bigger and nicer premisies on the Odeonsplatz - one of Munich most Metropolitan squares Once squeezed through the day bar (called camparino) a large and bustling bar scene opens in front of you and if you "bond" with the waiters you can even manage a...

I have visited this bar whenever in Munich for many years now. From lunch time till closing it is usually crowded with well dressed locals sipping cocktails and wine, especially Prosecco. They make surprisingly good (strong) mixed drinks in a land where most places measure out a small shot of alcohol. The food offerings, if you are really hungary, are... More

This place has HORRIBLE customer service. Ignored my colleague and me for good 10 minutes even though had called ahead to book a table. Finally got their attention, but then nobody was responsible for finding the list. Woud have left, but we were waiting on one of our clients. Once we were seated (outside), they warmed up a bit because... More

Visited the place during corporate event, so no input on prices etc. But: (a) nice, elegant ambience, not overcrowded but bustling with life (b) good, but not GREAT food (c) good, fast service

I finally left the bar after 15 minutes waiting, the bartender obviously avoiding me. Even when I pushed back the empty glasses of the previous guests.. Also quite shocked by the servers insisting on looking at the back and the bottom of a beautiful blond girl. This bar just a trap with disgusting and arrogant servers .. to avoid

Went to Schumann's with a group of colleagues to sample what was accurately reported to be a phenomenal atmosphere and to experience mixed drinks as they once were presented in great, sophisticated bars in large cities. The good news is the reports were accurate in every respect. The other positive news is that the bar is full and fun but... More
