In Munich for still another exhibition, we needed a local bistro to entertain a guest from France, and we wanted something special. The usual tourist trap restaurants simply would not do. The answer? The concierge at the Hilton gave Atelier Gourmet as his first and strongest recommendation and he was absolutely right.

We had a delightful meal in a cozy room off the beaten path but not hard to find; great conversation, tasty wine, super deserts and we impressed the heck out of our special visitor with our knowledge of local Munich restaurants. What more can you ask from a business dinner?

There are two french restaurants on Rablestrasse; be careful you walk into the right one. Once seated in the small dining room (maybe 15 tables?) the staff brings a large plaque with the days menu. If I remember correctly, there were 8-9 choices on the menu. Everything is fresh, local and prepared with real talent.

I must challenge "Elian382" with his "very average" rating. At least in our experience, the menu included a good range of offerings; items like bread and water came generously, and the side dishes of potatoes and such blended perfectly with the entrees we ordered. (Besides, fois gras is very 20th century.)

We had two wines with dinner; they were smooth recommendations that complimented the meals nicely. The deserts were delicacies, and I'm not a fellow who enjoys a lot of sweets. Next time I'm in Munich, I definitely will go back.

We went there for a late dinner and took both a 3 course menu.
I can't see the complaints about the amount too much, we both had definitely enough. On the contrary, the service was not very obliging - although most others had eaten already, it wasn't always too easy to get additional water & bread...

The menu didn't seem very creative to me and there weren't many things which really appealed me. To our food:
- The fois gras was pretty good as you expect it in a french restaurant
- The lamb chops were okish, although I hate these fried potatoe things with it...

Conclusion: Was ok, but will not necessarily go a second time

This restaurant has a Michelin bib gourmand. Indeed the food is nice. We had dinner outside on the very small terrace in front of the restaurant, so we even don't know how it looks inside. Friendly personnel. Menu choice is however extremely limited. Wines are too expensive for this type of restaurant.

We went for an anniversary dinner, the service was attentive, took care of special dietary requirements and was very friendly overall. The food was good, although not too creative, all dishes were made very well and the three-course-menu was harmonic. The wine pairing was an accurate selection. A very solid french gastronomical experience and I especially enjoyed the oysters from normandy! Not too fancy but can absolutely recommend (reasonable pricing too) !

The restaurant is very small with tables being very close to one another. It has more of a bistrot atmosphere than a gourmet place. However, the food is very good and so is the service. We enjoyed our stay there very much. The quality of ingredients was excellent and the preparation well executed. The food is traditional with classic French preparations. There are no modern elements to the dishes, which is fine. Meat and seafood-dishes were prepared a point. The wine-list is very well sorted and reasonably priced. A 4-course menue with wine-pairing sets you back between 60 and 70 euros per person.
