“A different Michelin star...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

For people somewhat familiar with Michelin type dinning experiences, Tramin offers something a little different. It´s a small restaurant with a very relaxed setting, opposite the more formal and sometimes even "stuffy" environment you would normally find at a Michelin starred restaurant.

The Tramin staff is also lots of fun, joking with us at times, and one of them even had (lots of) tattoos.

Tramin also doesn´t have the "regular" tasting menu: we inform the chef of anything we don´t like or are allergic to, and then pick the number of plates we want.

We went for the 7 plate menu with wine parings, and all together we had about 11 different dishes.

As you might expect, the quality of the food, the ingredients, the presentation, and the wines, is top notch. Every detail was almost always perfect.

The only negative thing I can point to, and that kept this dinning experience from ranking up there with other Michelin star experiences, was the fact that of the 5 main dishes, 4 were fish with matching white wines. Even though there was nothing wrong with the "Riesling", for my personal taste, the best white wine does´t come close to a great red wine. And of course, I also prefer meat over fish :-)

The price was 300 Euros plus tip.

Overall, very good dinning experience, that I recommend.

“Incredible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

We spent a couple of days in Munich in October and found Tramin online looking for a Michelin starred restaurant with something a bit different. This place is fantastic and I cannot praise it enough - we had one the best meals I've ever had. The tasting menu was incredible: imaginative, delicious and brilliantly executed. It was miles better than many one and two-star Michelin restaurants I've been to in London. The ambiance was great (stylish and intimate, but totally unpretentious), the wine list was excellent and the staff were friendly and happy to make recommendations. If you get the chance to go, definitely go!

“a must do for foodies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Tramin was recommended by the executive chef on our Viking Cruise which led us to make a reservation during our Munich vacation in Sept 2012. This is a terrific restaurant in a quiet area. The staff was top notch but not stuffy at all. We took the 5 course offering with wine pairing. This is one of the top eating experiences we have tried.

“Memorable meal for a special event.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Recently went to Tramin to celebrate our 25th Anniversary. This restaurant is about a 15 minute walk from Hotel Torbrau. This is not a traditional German restaurant and is known for its unique food. It has a MIchelin Star.

Very small restaurant with a different style of choosing your foods. You will tell the waitress what you like and what you do not like, and they will prepare a meal for you. Your choice is how many courses you want, two of us chose 5 courses and three of chose 6 courses. I am lactose intolerant and this was taken into consideration with my meal. So what you are going to get is a complete surprise!

While the portions are small, the food was perfectly presented and beautiful to look at. Due to the richness of the food and the intense flavors, no one left hungry! We did not all get the same selections, but the tastes were superb. If you are into molecular cooking--food that is reduced to flavors and small, but intense balls, these are mixed into some of the offerings, both a frozen offerings and small gelatin balls. My favorite dish was a shortrib dish with a wine reduction, presentation was perfect and taste was even better.

Wines were very well matched to the meal and the wait staff was excellent. They also gave each of us another dessert with a celebratory message drizzled on to it for our anniversary.

Price to food quality was very good, I was very satisfied with the meal and the evening, would definitely consider coming back and recommending it to my friends and relatives. If you want a unique and memorable meal, Tramin Restaurant is a great choice.

“Michelin star without snobism”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

This restaurant has a star and it's well earned, we were there twice ( new years evening, when they had just received the star and two months later) - both times a great experience!

The staff is friendly and jolly, we liked it a lot! We were taken there by frequenters (thanks Tilo and Eiby) and felt us at once like "part of the family".

Food was awesome craftsmanship and very well presented - this one of the best restaurants in Munich, no doubt. Everything feels like a walk in the park, but the kitchen staff does a lot for this feeling, best ingredients, highest quality, perfection...

The wine list passed on big names, IMHO, but that way we had more to explore :)

We will for sure come back, good quality for a reasonable price.
