“Fantastic French Meal!”

I was in Munich for a business conference and after several days of (good) german food, I was looking for a change. I went to Le Sud based on a recommendation from my hotel, even though it was a 20 minute trip. I'd checked the menu before going and was expecting a good, reasonable brasserie meal ( steakfrites, coq au vin, etc).

When I arrived at this comfortable, low-key place, the excellent waiter first put me at ease as a single, American diner. When asked what was particularly good, he recommended a 4- course prix fixe menu. Being an ardent Foodie, I chose this option, expecting to be able to taste a number of Brasserie courses. But when the food arrived I was in for an great surprise! Every course was fantastic, beautifully presented and incredibly flavored, making the best use of seasonal ingredients. Both the food and service were worthy of a four-star restaurant at home- but in a very unstuffy environment. I'm not sure where they got their chef, but this was some seriously enjoyable food. One of the best restaurant meals/experiences I've had on either continent- and I thought their price for the prix fixe was very reasonable given the prices I'd been paying at other places in Munich.
Highly recommend!

I eat in restaurants 3 times a week and have done so for over 20 years, and in many countries in the world, but never have I had an experience like this...

On Saturday May 9th I went to this restaurant with my wife, son and two friends. It was a lovely warm spring evening so we sat outside. After 20 minutes my chair completely dissintegrated from under me (I weigh in at 86 Kg so I did not expect this) and I crashed to the ground, prostrate and somewhat dazed and shocked. The waitress at the next table continued to take the order of the party next to us and no-one from the restaurant came to assist, ask if I was OK, or indeed came to clear the broken chair and offer me a new one! I had to be pulled off the floor by my co diners and had to get a new chair from the table behind, after picking up the broken remnants of my previous chair. I do not speak good enough German to complain so my friend did for me. The only response we got was, and I quote, "it wasn't my fault". This was said while he was slicing the bread and he did not bother to look up. After 10 minutes someone did come to our table to enquire whether I had changed chairs! We decided to take our custom elsewhere but not before we payed for the mineral water!! If you think this is a fake story, please contact me and I will furnish you with witnesses details.
