“A rare treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2014

Everything in this charming restaurant is of amazing quality: Food and wine are just outstanding, whatever you go for. It is a "surprise" restaurant - you can only choose between two options. The
atmosphere exudes a warm, almost familiar feeling and staff is as helpful and discreet as you may wish for...
It is rather on the pricey side, so we only go there for real occasions.

“Excellent food! A must visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013 via mobile

We went to this place after being unable to secure a table from our first choice. We surely are very glad we went to this place instead. Food was excellent. Service was superb. May not speak English too well but she was gracious and served us well! A must-visit place when you're in Munich!

“Scammers”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Premises: I love good food and good wine. I also worked for many year with one of the most prominent sommelier in Verona.
Conclusions:
1. Food: They propose a "surprise menu". When someone proposes a surprise menu, he must be beyond excellence to surprise the clients. They are not even good in cooking. I admit, the basil sorbet was amazing. But that's it. The rest of the food was edible, even good but nothing more.

2. Wine: I specifically asked them not to have ANY italian wine, wanting to taste some german or austrian wine. They said there would be no problem at all. They gave me 6 half-galsses of wine. Two of them were italian (Are you kidding me?!?!).
There were barely drinkable (and I adore the good bavarian white whines).
I paid for them 95 euros. And they were half glasses, like portions for a dessert wine to be clear.

3. Service: Nice but they cannot their kob. Moreover, they speak neither italian, nor english.

4. Venue: they pretend to be sophisticated just to result in a honky-tonk (small) hole. A medium-low italian taverna has generally more taste.

Total bill: 200 euros for two persons eating 10 small portions and 2 desserts and 6 half glasses of wines.

Stay away. Far far away. Thieves and scammers
