“French in Munich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

I went there to have dinner with my boyfriend. It was his choice and I can say it was 100% worthy!
If to start from the beginning, we had some issues with reservation. We were calling during the day time and no one replied. Even though, they are opened from 6pm till 1 am, still I think they should make a possibility to connect them during the day time as well. However, we made a reservation in the evening. About location, it is not 100% down town, it makes this place unique and charming, because there you will not tourists or people that came in randomly. Their target audience is people who know them from someone's recommendation. The exterior is not flashy. For us it was other plus. We found some difficulties with parking but it normal for that area especially in the evening. When we came, personnel nicely welcomed us and provided several tables to sit. We came at 8pm and the restaurant was almost packed (reservation must be done!!). I cannot say that many is large, however the waiter helped us with order and we were totally satisfied! Desserts are average but main courses are excellent (we took stake and prawns). Besides the cuisine, service is enormously great. Everyone is very helpful, kind and very very attentive! Strongly recommend this place!

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We rang up at 7pm for a table that night and they couldn't be more accommodating. Very friendly when we arrived, they had a lovely table reserved for us and it was the only empty table in the restaurant. the place was buzzing, lots of young couples, families and groups of friends. The food we ordered was amazing, my friend ordered one of the recommended starters and I had serious food envy. All the food was lovely and the bottle of chablis was perfect to compliment our food. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend it.

“not as great as expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

it's a nice place, but not as fabulous as initially expected.

if u're a regular guest, they treat u really well. but don't expect that to be the case, if this is your first visit.

i found the seating to be very uncomfortable and if u're tall, the tables are definitely too low.

food quality is ok, but stays below expectations given the pricing strategy.

“Again, an excellent choice for dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2011

Our dinner with friends was excellent. Good and interesting menu, nice and flexible service, lively and relaxed atmosphere. Even with a big private group being present at the same time, we got all attention required. Private parking lot.
We'll visit this place again when back to Munich.

“One of Munich's top restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2011

We go to Makassar two to four times a year and it has never disappointed. We've been there for romantic dinners, we've taken business clients and we've even been there twice with a baby (before she started crawling or walking and just slept in her stroller) and the staff was always so friendly and quick with a joke. I wouldn't recommend bringing a crawling baby or a toddler since it's a rather small restaurant. That would be stressful for the other patrons and for the parents.

The food and wine menu changes with every visit but everything we've tried has always left us wanting more. Every wine has left me searching for the same bottle on the internet or at a wine handler's afterwards.

And most importantly, it's intimate and it's personal - they seem to remember us every time we come...and if not, then they do a very good job of pretending to....which is fine with me. We appreciate the effort.
