Fantastic food strongly inspired by Japanese cuisine - in a small, traditional setting in Munich. While the food really deserves the two Michelin stars, service and atmosphere are a little bit missing the magic.

Choice of two menus, either 5 or 7 courses. Very competently made, but paralysingly heavy on your mind. Expensive. Fresh innocent staff. Nothing to enjoy in my view, you are constantly reminded how unique this Japanese genius is. I do not like this self-celebration, he should rather please me. Not again.

Asia meets Europe in a fantastic fusion of saveurs. A bit disoriented by the lack of traditional starter/main course one travels as in a dream led by experienced staff and great cook who unfortunately did not show up to receive our deserved compliments.

Description
Between Leopoldstrasse and the English Garden, the Werneckhof receives its guests in a cozy Art-Nouveau atmosphere, with charming service and international cuisine of Japanese inspiration that boasts a Michelin star and 17 points in the Gault Millau. It is a wonderfully relaxing place of refuge for friends of fine food and drink from Munich and all around the world.

There is space for up to 50 guests. The cherry tree wood corner bench extends throughout the entire room. The separee or the entire restaurant can be booked for private parties and events - yes, even for weddings: Munich's famed marriage registration office in Mandlstrasse is very close at hand.
