“Fine French Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

La Bouille has a garden in front, perfect for a lovely warm evening, secluded from the street by a thick hedge. The service is pleasant and competent. A waiter quickly put a fresh napkin over a patch of spilled wine on the table cloth when I brought his attention to it.
The food is good solid french cooking. Rack of lamb perfectly rose inside and crispy outside, and served with a very garlic and cream/butter-laced gratin of potato, sautéed leeks. The fist course a lovely carpaccio of scallops and salmon covered in fresh chopped green herbs. The entre-act was an avocado and cucumber soup that left me rather indifferent, but the other guests at the table were quite satisfied with it.
The wines selected by the house were very good indeed. It was a fine evening, and you pay for what you get.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2012 via mobile

Excellent kitchen and service. One should try everything - starter, main dish and definitely the dessert.

“Elegant French Restaurant In Schwabing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2011

A very stylish French restaurant in the middle of Schwabing. The food is french and excellent, cocktails were well prepared and the service is very good.
The inside of the restaurant is modern, which I like, and on sunny days one can dine outside as well. Prices are not cheap but reasonable considering the quality of food.
La Bouille can be highly recommended to visitors to Munich, specially if they are a little tired of heavy German cuisine and oompah music.

Excellent French restaurant with a genuine atmosphere, a bit stiff but excellent food - which you'll have to pay for, however.
