My husband and I were on a tour into Munich and on our own time researched restaurants near our hotel. After confirming a route with the front desk we walked 5 minutes to this cozy destination. It is a very popular spot for the locals. We can understand why. We do suggest reservations to guarantee seating. We did not have... More

Very low key atmosphere. Don't let that fool you! The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The choice of wine was varied and the wait staff was knowledgeable. I recommend reservations as the space was smaller than I imagined from viewing the on line pictures.

Visited for dinner on a Friday Night. The place was very busy so reservations are recommended. Service was 5 stars, we had the 3 course meal. Everything tasted excellent. Highly recommended.

When you've had enough schnitzel and goulash, come here and dine. Johannes was our server, and he was fantastic! The food was excellent as well. My husband had the veal saltimbocca, and I had the prawns with ricotta and spinach ravioli. Located right near the train station, it was very convenient for us.

Dining in a wine restaurant during Oktoberfest might have been a mistake... Lunch menu was tasty and wine selection was good (although not as much by the glass as you would think a wine restaurant would offer). What was disappointing was the service. I waited too long time to place an order and get a drink. It dawned on me... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. Very creative menu, great service, and an amazing wine list. Easily the best meal we had in Munich, and for that matter, Austria. Highly recommend for something different from the typical Bavarian fare.

Picked this wine restaurant as near hotel and train station. Whole staff was lovely. Had a great 2007 French Bordeaux and then had them recommend a white wine. Waitress and wine specialist took awhile to talk about it and recommended a reasonable wine that they just got in that was excellent. They sell it at their wine shop and I... More

Description
Dieses Weinrestaurant und Weinbar im Herzen Munchens teilt mit seinen Gasten eine grosse Leidenschaft: die Begeisterung fur gutes Essen und ausgezeichnete Weine. Bis zu 20 Rebsorten im offenen Ausschank und rund 700 Flaschenweine aus aller Welt bieten eine Auswahl, bei der kein Wunsch unerfullt bleibt. Das gilt auch fur die Kulinarik: In Geisel's Vinothek weiss man mit hausgemachten Pasta, frisch geschnittenem San Daniele Schinken und den besten Gerichten aus der mediterran angehauchten, bayerischen Kuche zu uberzeugen. Gastgeber der Vinothek in Munchen Robert Zeller ist ubrigens dafur bekannt, unter den offenen Weinen stets eine Auswahl sehr hochkaratiger Tropfen bereit zu halten.
