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.

“Intricate, delightful, refreshing experience!”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Randomly picked this one star restaurant off Via Michelin star guide,

Restaurant is located in the busy Karlsplatz and was easy to find.
We decided to try the Martin Fauster Menu which cost 132 Euro per person, which is for 8 courses, including 7 courses and a course of cheese selection. Wine pairing and coffee with this menu costs 210Euro, which we decide to give a miss.

Description for this degustation menu was simple and short , so you will have a lot to imagine before the courses arrive at your table.

Two amuse bouche, one cold and one hot was served before the start of the courses. The hot appetizer, tender crab claws with a small langoustine and water melon drizzled with seafood sauce was refreshing! And we were glad that the rest of the courses that followed also gave us much pleasure. All the courses were created with many interesting flavours and texture, which were managed so well that they gave lots of complexity and depth . As at times it is easy for ambitious chef to go wrong with use of too many ingredients... But I must say.... It was all perfectly designed and executed. Dessert was also refreshing and satisfying.

Oh.. And this is the ONLY starred restaurant which we have been to for past years that has not employed the technique of foaming in ALL of its courses..... Well this is something very different!

Service was ok, not exceptional but good enough.
Ambience was cosy with good view of the busy street and lights..
We spent 288 euro for the menu for 2 pax with 2 glasses of wine and a bottle of water.

Happy that we have picked this restuarant ! Will return if we are back in munich.

“Amazing Restaurant”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

If you are into fine dining then this has to be one of the best. It does come with an appropriate price tag though so get ready for it.

The food is excellent, the wine superb and the staff amazingly old world service and friendly.

If you are looking for the ultimate romantic restaurant then this is it.
