Very good dinner, I had the pumpkin soup with coconut foam, delicious! And then the bouilabasse, the fish was extremely fresh! Just go!

This is the fist of two reviews. This one being of the Geisel Vinothek Munich and the other to come of Anna Restaurant Munich. We found this restaurant on this site with quite positive reviews. What we found upon arrival at Geisel's Vinothek was completely the opposite. A rude waitress/host who looked us up and down upon entry with a... More

My wife and I went here for dinner last night. The bubbly and genuinely lovely staff did everything to make us comfortable and welcome. The 3 course set menu with wines at 65€ was a total bargain and simply delightful. I loved the atmosphere and the old and rare (albeit sadly empty) wine bottles that add to this. The wine... More

My husband and I went to Geisel's Vinothek one evening as a special birthday celebration. We were able to get a seat without a reservation (probably because everyone was at Oktoberfest) and the service was excellent. At the beginning of the meal, they lit a brand new candle at our table which I thought was a nice touch. We decided... More

My husband and I were on a tour into Munich and on our own time researched restaurants near our hotel. After confirming a route with the front desk we walked 5 minutes to this cozy destination. It is a very popular spot for the locals. We can understand why. We do suggest reservations to guarantee seating. We did not have... More

Very low key atmosphere. Don't let that fool you! The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The choice of wine was varied and the wait staff was knowledgeable. I recommend reservations as the space was smaller than I imagined from viewing the on line pictures.

Visited for dinner on a Friday Night. The place was very busy so reservations are recommended. Service was 5 stars, we had the 3 course meal. Everything tasted excellent. Highly recommended.

Description
Dieses Weinrestaurant und Weinbar im Herzen Munchens teilt mit seinen Gasten eine grosse Leidenschaft: die Begeisterung fur gutes Essen und ausgezeichnete Weine. Bis zu 20 Rebsorten im offenen Ausschank und rund 700 Flaschenweine aus aller Welt bieten eine Auswahl, bei der kein Wunsch unerfullt bleibt. Das gilt auch fur die Kulinarik: In Geisel's Vinothek weiss man mit hausgemachten Pasta, frisch geschnittenem San Daniele Schinken und den besten Gerichten aus der mediterran angehauchten, bayerischen Kuche zu uberzeugen. Gastgeber der Vinothek in Munchen Robert Zeller ist ubrigens dafur bekannt, unter den offenen Weinen stets eine Auswahl sehr hochkaratiger Tropfen bereit zu halten.
