“Great food in a great setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

Königsquelle can best be described as a gastro-pub. The menu changes with the seasons and is a great mix of German/Austrian classics with strong Italian and French influences. For example the Tafelspitz melts in your mouth and the Wienerschnitzel is perfect, and there is a main that features that German favourite "Currywurst". This week's menu includes Tafelspitz (slow simmered beef) in a horseradish and mustard crust; chanterelles and pasta; pikeperch and scampi. The mixed starters are great, as are the old faithfuls such as pumpkin soup. There is always a choice of imaginative salads and vegetarian options. The menu is handwritten and deciphering it is half the fun - the friendly waiters are on hand to help you understand what is on offer. The wine list is great and you can always rely on a reasonably priced house red and white. On my last visit we drank a Rioja that just slipped down without touching the sides. The owner, Peter, did some of his training in Scotland and brought back to Germany a genuine interest in whisky. The Königsquelle offers a impressive selection of single malts the like of which I have only seen in Scotland.
They takes bookings. You will really enjoy your meal, and weather permitting you can sit outside and enjoy the summer evening.

“Service with a smile”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

We had a wonderful dinner at the Konigsquelle. I can't really say which was better--the food or the service. Both were great. The restaurant was around the corner from our hotel (The Admiral), so we decided to give it a try. It was fairly busy that night but we were able to get a table without a reservation. The menu offerings all sounded tempting...it was a little difficult to choose. The owner translated the entire menu for us and came back to the table several times to check on us as we decided and then again as we were eating to make sure that everything was to our satisfaction. The entire staff was most pleasant and helpful. Our dinner was delicious...the wine selections were great...dessert excellent. This restaurant is a winner.

“Hidden gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

This place was amazing. First off the owner had real enthusiasm for the food and translated the entire menu for us. There are lots of classic German, French influenced, and vegetarian options. The ambience looked like a classic bar/bios trot and had a real charm to it. There is an extensive wine and cocktail list. The appetisers were amazing and the mains and deserts even better. It is the best food we have eaten in Germany and seemed liked a real hit with the locals. Very close to central Munich but enough off the main streets to keep the tourists away. The staff were very friendly and the overall experience was memorable. Highly noted dishes were the goats cheese starter, seafood soup, braised lamb w. rosemary red wine jus, homemade veggie ravioli, and the curd dumplings for desert. Eat here you will not be disappointed.

“Yum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

Lovely patio, responsive service and willing to translate the menu for us and recommend the best beers. Spring asparagus and fish was fantastic. Wiener schnitzel was classically yummy. Well worth a visit.
