Recommendations for Must-Dine's in Munich

Jump to last reply

Good morning!

I was just looking around at the various threads for Munich restaurants, however, none of them appear to be very current. I'm hoping to gather some recommendations for "must-dine's" in Munich. We are headed over next month (mid April) and will be there mid-week for a global crane and heavy equipment conference. It brings quite a few people to Munich, so ideally, we would like to find restaurants where we can make reservations.

The idea is to find places where we coud potentially entertain clients, and while I wouldn't say "money is no object," this is a business trip and some spending to this regard is expected. We're open to all types of cuisine, and would like to find restaurants that are located in the city center (Marienplatz/Viktualienmarkt, Schwabing, Glockenbachviertel, etc...).

If you live in Munich, have visited recently, or know something I don't, please weigh-in. Thank you so much in advance!

    Following are our favorite restaurants in Munich (been there 25+ times) that would be good picks for business dinners. There is also an excellent resource at http://tinyurl.com/munich-restaurants. This site provides a compilation of (mostly TripAdvisor) reviews by locals and frequent visitors superimposed on a Google map of the city. Of course, not all are suitable for business dinners but you can click through and get reviews


    • Zum Alten Markt
    www.zumaltenmarkt.de/
    Dreifaltigkeitsplatz 3
    Am Viktualienmarket
    Reservations (recommended): +49 (0) 89 29-99-95
    S-Bahn Marienplatz

    Zum Alten Markt is our favorite restaurant in town. If you have only one night in Munich, this is the place to go. The food is fantastic, featuring ultra-fresh cuisine with ingredients from the nearby market. The style is Bavarian with a creative, lighter touch. The interior decor, with its intricately coffered wooden ceiling, came from a 400-year-old Tyrolean castle. They feature Spaten beer and have a nice wine list. It’s a small restaurant that is very popular with locals so reservations are recommended. The owner, Herr Josef Lehrner is out-going, fun, and speaks English perfectly. The phone number shown above is his cell phone; he’s accustomed to receiving reservation calls from the U.S. Although the website is all in German, the staff here is proficient (enough) in English so no worries.

    • Trattoria Al Boccone
    www.alboccone.com
    Hockbrueckenstrasse 3 (near Marienplatz)
    Reservations may be needed at peak times +49 (0) 296383
    alboccone@t-online.de
    S-Bahn Marienplatz

    Opened April 2012 in the space formerly occupied by Buon Gusto Talamonti, Trattoria Al Boccone is a light, airy, sophisticated Italian bistro with high quality dishes. An extensive range of antipasti is offered on buffet – you can either select your own or ask your server to do so for you. A short menu of pastas, fish, and meat dishes rounds out the offerings. Meats and fishes are top quality and simply grilled served with good vegetable or salad sides. A short but good wine list and Bitburger Pils beer (among other beers, but nothing local) provides an ample range of beverages. This is a good spot for light, top-notch Italian fare in a city known for heavy food.

    • Brenner Grill
    www.brennergrill.de
    Maximilianstraße 15
    Reservations (recommended): +49 (0) 89 452288-0
    S-Bahn Marienplatz, U-Bahn Odeonsplatz

    Brenner Grill is a modern, upscale Italian bistro located within easy walking distance of Marienplatz. The meats, risotto, and salads are very good. The wine list is good for reds but has limited choices for whites unless you’re a Pinot Grigio fan. The interior is simple but very well done with soaring ceilings. It is quite popular with the locals so reservations are advised. Although the website is all in German, everyone on staff is very proficient in English.

    • Zum Franziskaner
    www.zum-franziskaner.de
    Residenzstraße 9
    S/U-Bahn Marienplatz or Odeonsplatz

    Located directly across the street (south) from Spatenhaus, this is a great choice for lunch after visiting the Residenz. There is a small patio out front; a stübl serving only wurst and lebenkase; and a very large, multi-room restaurant with an extensive menu. They feature Lowenbrau beer as well as Franziskaner Weissbier. Fantastic house-made rotbratwurst (small sausages similar to the Nürnburgers at Nürnberger Bratwurst Glöckl am Dom) and the best kraut and potato salad in town. They are also well known for house-made Weißwurst (white sausages served in hot liquid, be sure to remove the casing!), which tends to run out by 1:30 or 2:00 pm. Feel free to seat yourself in the stübl or in the restaurant, often at shared tables. Zum Franziskaner gets very crowded with locals on weekends (there’s a reason) but it’s well worth fighting the crowds.

    • Weinhaus Neuner
    www.weinhaus-neuner.de/index_en.php
    Herzogspitalstrasse 8
    +49 (0) 89 26039
    S/U-Bahn Karlsplatz

    The Weinhaus Neuner is Munich's oldest wine tavern. The food is upscale and very good and, as you might expect, the wine list is extensive. There are three venues: a wood-panel restaurant (more expensive, reservations required), a Weinstübl (less expensive), and a small bistro. The choice of food ranges from nouvelle German to old-fashioned country. Specialties include home-smoked beef and salmon. Closed Sundays.
