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 übrigens dafur bekannt, unter den offenen Weinen stets eine Auswahl sehr hochkaratiger Tropfen bereit zu halten.

This was our favorite restaurant in Munich. We ate outside in a shaded table in the pedestrian area. The food was delicious and we had a different glass of wine with every course. one of the wines had turned and they took it back immediately. The pasta was so delicious that we ordered another serving of a different pasta. My husband had the lamb which was also fantastic.

We stayed at a hotel near the train station and selected this restaurant based on TripAdvisor as it was within walking distance. We were not disappointed as the service, wine and food were all excellent. On any future visit, this will be on our list to return.

This is a tiny, tiny place so best to book in advance. The atmosphere is great, the staff is absolutely adorable, the wine list extremely impressive and yes, our German red wine was excellent as was the food, suitably seasonal with lots of game (in winter). I would love to go back!

Thank you to the friends who told us to go to Geisel's Vinothek at the Hotel Excelsior. It isn't a large place and when we arrived at 20.00 on a Monday night it was packed out and we had to wait an hour for a table. But it was worth waiting and once seated everything was good. It smells like a proper restaurant, the staff are professional and attentive and the menu is reassuringly short and packed with tasty seasonal produce and German foodie things such as moenchsbaht (spelling may not be correct). We went twice: the venison and pork were good, the fish risotto was excellent and the beef special was an outstanding plate of tender rare beef. The wine list is very good even at the lower priced end. Puds looked excellent but we were full enough and worry about our weight. Prices were the same as the local cafes but this was much better value. Well worth a visit.
