Description: If you find yourself wandering the cobbled streets surrounding Marienplatz - Munich's central square and a main tourist attraction - and maybe, just maybe feeling a little homesick, knock on the door of the Victorian House Restaurant and see what welcome you receive. Modelled on a traditional English home, tourists and Brits alike love the Victorian House Restaurant ��� the comfy upholstered sofas, the imposing portraits in heavy gilded frames, the antiques, the thick floral curtains. The traditional afternoon tea of neat finger sandwiches, scones, clotted cream, sweet strawberry jam and a pot of Earl Grey. Though perhaps a bottle of Newcastle Brown Ale or a G&T goes better with lunch or dinner. While there are plenty of identifiably British meals, there's more than just meat and two veg on the men. Surprises such as Mexican chilli noodle bake regularly appear to stir up any threat of stuffiness. The Victorian House Restaurant's interesting wine list is similarly international. But you're always brought back to Blighty, what with the five-star, service bone China dinner set, silver cutlery and crystal glasses. Thankfully, you can leave the stiff upper lip at home.

“Nice Break from The Beer Cellers And Christmas Markets If you Need One”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012 via mobile

Stumbled upon this place when exploring Christmas markets of Munich. Originally planning to go for kafee und Kuchen but were intrigued by the name. On looking inside the place was packed on a Wednesday afternoon at 3pm so we figured must be good.
Nice selection of tea. We ordered the cream tea set (scones and tea) and afternoon tea set (scones, sandwiches and tea). Scones came hot from the oven with plenty of clotted cream and jam.
Considering how busy the restaurant was and the fact there was only 2 servers, he managed to stop and chat and exchange pleasantries.
Would definitely go back

Wonderful food, great attentive service! Great for brunch! We love this place! A must see while in Munich. Seconds away from the famous Vicktoralian Markt.

“Expensive and average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

I went here for tea and scones. The service wasn't particularly friendly and the scones ( so cheap to make) were exorbitantly expensive and quite stale - disappointing
