“Didn't like the food :-(”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

Alas, my experience wasn't positive. Scallops as hot starter was overcooked so they lost both texture and special its special sweet taste. Fish (kind of sole) was ok but nothing more. Dessert also was very average - though it was supposed to be a crep a-la Normand - it was an ordinary pancake with apples (wheat floor, not buckwheat as needed) in a calvados puddle. Sniff-sniff, I definitely expected more. And that was rather costly. Only thing I liked was local wine.
So you either take raw seafood like oysters - or you'd better choose another place.
Interior was fine though it's in a basement. Service was also nice.

“Wonderful Seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Our third visit to Austernkeller, but this time without the presence of Zubin Mehta! This is an old, terrific seafood restaurant in the heart of Munich. Oysters are redolent of ocean water and the salmon we had was perfect.

“In a nutshell: Oysters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

These are the best oysters I have found in Munich, including the variety.
In my view the fish is good but could be even better without some of the fish taste disguising additives.
