We stopped in to try some German wines while in Munich for a short stay. Such a cute place! Simple, clean space with sort of a warehouse feel. They couldn't have been more accommodating- opened a wine just for us so we could try it by the glass. They also made us a meat and cheese plate that was delicious.... More

When we entered the place we immediately felt well. We were welcomed and treated in a very personal and attentive way. As starter for dinner we had the pumpkin soup and the Blutwurst with lentils - both dishes were excellent. The vegetarian main cours and the barbarie duck also tasted good. The Lavender sorbet as desert was just the top... More

We visited "Walter und Bejamin" a couple of days ago for a few glasses of wine. Wine was average but red wine was served too cold and white wine too warm. However, the service was the most negative aspect this evening. During the one hour we spent at the restaurant, the barkeeper was drinking at least 6 glasses of whine... More

Delicious food and of course great wine and classy recommendations. It is not cheap at all, but it is worth it as the quality is excellent.

This small wine shop offers the possibility to buy wines, books and has also a few tables with a short menu. I have to confess that I ate one of the best fish I ever had in Munich. The cooking was perfect (not overcooked), also the products are very high quality. The wines are also very good, the waiters very... More

We had a fantastic evening with our friends in this wine bar. The choice of dishes was not huge but more attention was given to the creation and execution of them. Loved the waiter's recommendations of the wines to match our food and the music in the bar.

We recently had a small reunion of friends from far-flung places at Walter & Benjamin's and we all left raving about the food, the wine and the general atmosphere. It's a small place, but as the locals say: Klein, aber fein! We decided to go for a four-course meal and leave ourselves in chef Luke's more-than-capable hands in selecting the... More
