Gabelspiel was INCREDIBLE. Definitely the best meal I've ever had. The biggest take away was the amazing service and team behind the food. The restaurant is calm, intimate, and inviting. As we sat down we were offered an aperitif or a glass of champagne or...a glass of local beer (from a brewery right around the corner). They also brought out some heartwarming nibbles as we decided how many courses to dive into. We picked 6 and wine pairings. Each course began with the Sommelier explaining the origin and backstory to each wine, why they picked it, and why it paired with each course. The food was incredibly fresh and they did an excellent job highlighting seasonal flavors. The meat was divine. The presentation was exceptional. My favorite course was probably the quail. I've never had quail prepared so expertly. The quail egg at the beginning was excellent too. We had a later reservation so near the end of the meal it was just us and another table. The cherry on top of the perfect experience: the co-owner's little dog Larry came out and hung out with us as we finished dessert! Very cool dog, very cool restaurant, and very incredible experience. 14/10 stars (if that's possible)More

You expect great tastes from the food but some of them is just really not tasty. For instance there was no sardine and they served another fish and the taste of the sauce was so heavy sour that just ruin taste of thefish as well....But the worst was the main course was littlraly burnt meat. I asked them to make my meat well done since im pregnant they bring a black burnt meat coved with a sauce which is also smells burnt. When i was telling this the reaction was even worst then meat. The lady said ‘ yeah you asked well done this is what happens!’ Then other lady came who was nicer and she said it is not meat burnt it is yhe fat around which was also not true. Imagine you go a Michelin star restaurant and pay min. 105 euros for each and they give you burnt meat and they get rude because you gave the feedback even if it was a very nice way. Wasting money!More

If you're looking at getting stuffed, don't go here. You won't be completely full, (but you won't be hungry either) even after 8 courses. But if you're looking at pampering yourself with some delicious food & some tasty wine in a quiet place with a...nice ambiance; then you should go here. We were 3 for dinner that night. After looking at the different menu options, we decided to go for the 8 course dinner & 4 rounds of wine. The restaurant is a small place with a maximum of 25 seats & a homely setting. It's run by a couple. The lady welcomes the guests & does the serving, while her husband is the chef & runs the kitchen with the help of one other. The lady is extremely friendly & made us feel welcome while introducing us to the menu & giving us recommendations. She made sure to ask us after every single course how the food was. She then explained what the next course was & asked whether we had any special wishes. Each course is brought out either by her or by the chef. They would lay the plates & explain what is what & how it was prepared. The food was delicious. The drinks were also tasty & the wines from different countries were also good. They were nice enough to add 3 different items to the main course (#6) even though the menu said 2 items, for no extra cost. They also gave us a free round of starters on the house as well as a free round of sweets after the full course. You don't pay only for the food, but for the service as well. Something in the menu changes every week, so you won't get the same stuff again. I highly recommend the place!More

We spend a wonderful evening at Gabelspiel. The food was very creative and tasted delicious. You can choose between different menus and I recommend to at least order 6 dishes to taste enough and not remain hungry. The wine menu is very satisfying and offers...a great variety. You should ask for a recommendation even if you know your wine! All that comes at a price but you are for sure paying for good quality and wo t regret a penny. We will come back!More

It is so nice to see a young couple living their dream, especially in an expensive city like Munich! He is the chef preparing his delicious creations, she serves at the tables with a lovely smile and young and friendly approach. The restaurant is romantic,...young and yet professional. We loved the chef's inventions (like the spruce ice cream) and the fresh hand-made bread, it is definitely worth a go! Well done guys ;)More

My GF and I went there on a wednesday evening. The restaurant has 4 tables. Run by the chef and his wife. Very welcoming, you feel like you are visiting them at home. They have a veariety of 8 dishes one being a desert and...one vegetarian. One can order a formula of minimum 4 dishes of your lrefered choice. Thr food is very delivious. Dishes were served with a time difference of around 20 minutes. The restaurant is expensive we ended up paying 200 euros for 8 dishes a bottle of wine and 2 wine glasses. But it was one of those times that you know it was worth it. It doesnt have the best romantic atmosphere but being located in an old building on the ground floor gives the place its own identity.More

My wife and me enjoyed a delicious menu. Private atmosphere and the food was served along with an excellent explanation and taste. We can highly recommend this restaurant to everyone seeking superior food and service at still affordable prices on that level. We liked the...authentic and puristic atmosphere of this small restaurant with less than 10 tables.More

This restaurant is a wonderful little spot for a romantic meal or a special dinner out with friends. The food is prepared to a gourmet standard and reflects the passion of the chef; everything was cooked to perfection. The location is in the heart of...Giesing, and they have a beautiful garden terrace that is tucked away from the main street - it's truly a gem. The service is personal and considered with a friendly touch and excellent wine pairings. One consideration to make is that this is not a place for a quick bite - expect to have a meal that reflects between six and eight courses, if you choose. A perfect place for celebrations or a romantic night out with your significant other. The garden would make a great spot for a private party celebration.More

Came here with colleagues and what a nice treat. The hostess was so friendly with everyone and instantly made you feel so welcome. I was so surprised when the homemade bread appeared wrapped in parchment paper. What a lovely touch. One of my colleagues wasn't...keen on the cauliflower amuse bouche so they rustled up a different one for me. Absolutely amazing. You didn't have much options in terms of main course, either pigeon or lamb. Really tasty lamb but the size of the portion meant €35 was a bit steep. All dishes were so well presented, it was almost a piece of artwork! Great place even though they started back in Nov.More
