The service, good and ambience is amazing here. I visited this restaurant whilst on a weekend trip to Munich. I am glad that we did book in advance as the restaurant was at full capacity just after 8pm. The wines here are so wonderful. I enjoyed both a red and white wine by the recommendation of our waitress. For starters,... More

Great little bar and no shortage of a choice of drinks. Not only was the beer great value, there were a few choices of which they all were excellent. I'm a rum drinker so was quite pleased to see a selection of about 7-8 different rums. Cool little subtle entrance into this bar from Hotel Excelsior also.

But just as well if you know your way around wines. In any case, advice is easy to get. i liked the food menu, not all over the place. with a proposal for any preferred ingredients or appetite. Some daring associations, nice presentations. Good service. And i liked the atmosphere, cosy and quiet.

Wine bar of the Excelsior Hotel. Small venue. Friendly reception. Pleasant and professional staff. Their selection of wines is perfect. An unexpected but equally strong forte is their delicious food (definitely to be written more about). The oven warm Vacherin is not to be missed. As is the rest of their menu .. Est! Est! Est! PS.

Staying at the nearby sister hotel Koenigshof for two nights recently, we ate here each night, the first night being so good, we came back for more the next night. It’s small and very well patronised by locals it seems though there was also a smattering of hotel guests, so a nice mix of nationalities and demographics. First and foremost... More

Loved this place. Forget the hotel restaurant stigma. The setting is beautiful, the service impeccable, monster wine list and outstanding food. One standout was the potato leek soup with salmon but all our food was great. Reservations suggested - very small.
