“Excellent steak!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2011

We came across this restaurant by chance when we were looking for somewhere to have dinner. As it was a beautiful summer's evening, we sat in the garden - a very relaxed atmosphere with long tables to be shared with others. We ordered the filet steak and the price included a large mixed salad and a choice of potato. We were very surprised by the excellent quality of the steak as this cannot be taken for granted in Europe. It was cooked to perfection! We found the price to be reasonable but we are in the lucky position of living in Switzerland so the rate of exchange was very favourable to us! The service was friendly and extremely fast and we would certainly go there again.

“Irregular and disapointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2010

I went to this restaurant twice while on a business trip to Munich, Nov 30th and Dec 1st 2010. The first night was good, service was pleasant and the tenderloin was well cooked. I enjoyed it enough to go back the next day. Bad move...the place felt completely different. First, the prices on the English Menu were higher than the previous night. When I mentionned that to the waitress, I was told that this was the normal annual price increase effective every December 1st. On the second night, service was very bad and innatentive, the meat was poorly cooked, and the portion of bread was reduced from 2 to 1 as compared to the previous night. Conclusion: in 24 hours, they increased pricing, reduced portions, and decreased food and service quality. A huge disapointment...

“Dissapointing - Like an Outback Steak house experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2010

Was expecting a high end steak house from reading previous reviews - this is not your "Aged Steak" option type of steak house. If your looking for an "Outback Experience" you won't be dissapointed. No reservations taken for Saurday night - ... Wine list very limited. A mixed salad starter comes with every steak order.... soaked with dressing .. avoid ...

The best atmosphere and service all together, with a very friendly stuff, always with a smile on their faces and with the best tips, what to order! The food is amazing, it is just melting in your mouth :))) Easy reachable, in the best part of München city. Every time I go there, the food tastes exactly the same, absolutely wonderful!

“One of the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2008

Absolutely great steak house. The American Tenderloin is just superb, moist and tender, even when it's well done!
