I booked dinner here to celebrate my boyfriends birthday whilst visiting Munich. I looked into the different Michelin options and went with esszimmer because I preferred the style and it didn't disappoint. The menu options were great and it was a nice touch to be able to swap courses between the modern and traditional depending on your preferences. The only... More

Nice location at top of the BMW world. Plenty of space between the table makes a nice atmosphere. The service is great. The products and the finishing of the food is outstanding. The price of the food is absolutely acceptable... the only little minus is the price of the beverages.

Floating above the main two levels of the BWM World in a glass oasis of calm, the Esszimmer food and experience did not disappoint. The staff was professional and attentive, and they even hand-wrote us a congratulatory card for our wedding (which we were celebrating with our dinner there). They were also well equipped for international guests as several of... More

As good as you would expect a 2 Michelin stars restaurant to be. The special part of this one is the location (BMW Welt) and the traditional bavarian touches. My wife went for the traditional menu ( as a bavarian would do) but i had the modern, as it had a taste of all my favourites (lobster, fish, lamb, rabbit,... More

EssZimmer Restaurant is on my top list when visiting Munich. I reserved a table 4 weeks in advance before boarding. It's a modern yet formal fine-dining on the 3rd floor of BMW Welt. The atmosphere is cozy but luxurious so please be aware to dress well. I may have to go with their mistakes first. We were a group of... More

What a great evening, what a great experience! Thanks EssZimmer, this is fine dining to perfection. It all starts with the great architecture of the BMW Welt building. They have a number of restaurants in BMW Welt of which EssZimmer is their 2* Michelin rated one. The interior of the restaurant is very nice, with warm colors, an open fire... More

Based on our experience in fine dining, we would rate this restaurant as excellent with some small remarks. We will start with thing that did not impress us; we were kept waiting to be attended for almost 10 minutes which is not acceptable at this level and the maitre'd did not spend time with us during dinner. But absolutely everything... More

After a business meeting we were treated to a special experience: a trip to BMW World which is primarily a showroom built truly around the sensory experience. This is the place where you would pick up your custom ordered BMW. The showroom will have your car spinning on a pedestal and you drive it right off the showroom floor. After... More
