Great wine, great food, great service! What more could you wish for? Certainly one of the best wine selections we have ever seen. The food was exceptional, even though there was a slightly limited menu, the venison pasta was superb! The venue itself is so romantic, recommended!

The service was attentive but not intrusive. The food was so delicious. I had the venison and my partner had the special chicken. The wine list is very... More

This restaurant has two advantages for me. It is directly opposite the hotel in which I like to stay, the food is excellent, the staff efficient but gracious. The menu LOOKS small but it is carefully chosen and there are always three choices of specials. The wine lists are superb. But book because even when the weather is fine and... More

Delicious food, excellent wine and extremely attentive service. This is a great option in Munich, but it is pricey! Worth it though.

If you look to test wine while eating very well and in a relax but very confortable and nice atomosphere, this is the place to be. Not far away from the main central station and belonging to a very good hotel (Excelsior)

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.
