Description: The panoramic view over Karlsplatz Stachus square is unrivalled, and simply entering the Königshof Gourmet Restaurant and sensing its atmosphere is already a delight of anticipation for the refined palate: beautiful wood panelling on the walls, silk and velvet fabrics in the finest of colour nuances, all rounded off by the quiet but tireless footfalls of the attentive service team. The Königshof Gourmet Restaurant, rated with one Michelin Star and 18 Points at Gault Millau, spirits you far away from the travails of the day. Our guests here savour a culinary revelation of the highest standard. Chef de Cuisine Martin Fauster and his team craft your dining experience with a dedication that caters to even the smallest of wishes – from selecting and preparing the dishes, to their serving. Allow them to enchant you with exciting aromas and French charm, with fish pan-seared for no more than a moment and creations of ostensible purism, with main courses presented so as to also be a feast for the eyes and with sweet surprises that add yet another mouth-watering facet to the delicacies that preceded them. The service team in the Königshof Gourmet Restaurant are masters in the art of presenting the specialities from the kitchen. Restaurant Manager Simon Adam assures a perfect balance between attentiveness and restraint, while sommelier Stéphane Thuriot knows exactly how to enrich cuisine with just the right wines.

“Perfect location”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

This is just down the railway station or bahnhof as the Germans say! Location is fantastic, but the exterior was a bit of a let down. Even the room did not have a great view! However, the interior is quality and the service quality is good.

“Old-fashioned-formal, in terms of clientele, decor, and service”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

If I had to describe this place in one word, it would be stuffy. We came for dinner on Saturday night, and I have never been surrounded by such an old crowd! We were probably the only people under the age of 30, and there was only one other couple under the age of 40. Everyone else was 45+. Also, be sure to dress more formally. Almost all of the men had jacket and tie. This seems to be the case in Europe - Michelin stars call for formal attire..not so much in New York..

The décor and the service are both old-fashioned. The wine list was extensive, and the food was good, though not spectacular.

We had the degustation menu, with the main course switched out. After trying blood pudding/sausage in Vienna, that was not something I cared to experience again. We opted for the turbot instead, which was a bit overcooked. The accompanying bone marrow was very disappointing, and it was more of a marrow gelatin than actual marrow. The starting dish of prawns and langoustine was quite good, and the salmon was decent. After finishing the main, the citrus fruits dessert took forever to come out - over half an hour. Seriously, they better have been making the sorbet from scratch or something. I liked the platter of petit fours to choose from.

Tip: point to which bread you want instead of asking by name..the "rye" was definitely not a rye and the "sourdough" was a plain roll.
