Description: If you find yourself wandering the cobbled streets surrounding Marienplatz - Munich's central square and a main tourist attraction - and maybe, just maybe feeling a little homesick, knock on the door of the Victorian House Restaurant and see what welcome you receive. Modelled on a traditional English home, tourists and Brits alike love the Victorian House Restaurant ��� the comfy upholstered sofas, the imposing portraits in heavy gilded frames, the antiques, the thick floral curtains. The traditional afternoon tea of neat finger sandwiches, scones, clotted cream, sweet strawberry jam and a pot of Earl Grey. Though perhaps a bottle of Newcastle Brown Ale or a G&T goes better with lunch or dinner. While there are plenty of identifiably British meals, there's more than just meat and two veg on the men. Surprises such as Mexican chilli noodle bake regularly appear to stir up any threat of stuffiness. The Victorian House Restaurant's interesting wine list is similarly international. But you're always brought back to Blighty, what with the five-star, service bone China dinner set, silver cutlery and crystal glasses. Thankfully, you can leave the stiff upper lip at home.

“Nice place and food, but let down by price and poor service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

Nice place, but very disappointed by the service, and overall experience left me underwhelmed, even though I was very much looking forward to going to the place. During the afternoon there's a very poor food selection, and the staff were not accommodating to any requests to make a small change to anything on the menu. However, the thing that annoyed me the most, was then when ordering a English Crumpets, it did not come with butter. I asked for some butter and it arrived, but when paying found out I was charged €1.50 for the pleasure. The 2 crumpets were already €6.50, so frankly that's just insulting to customers to pay €8 total for 2 small crumpets!

“Charming, Nice Place in The Center of Munich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

This place is a bit pricey but it is really something special. It has such nice decorations and it really has that old world charm. Look at their website to get an idea how interesting this place looks.

The food is pretty good and we always enjoy having breakfast here. It is not cheap but certainly a fun morning out.

“Great Tea list”

I went here for lunch. The sandwich was great. They have a large list of teas and incredible service. I would go here again.

“Englishness!”

When I need a spot of tea and my fix of clotted cream, I love this place. Does the trick every time.
