Food and restaurants in Munich

Top restaurants

Bavarian Restaurant
“I want to be honest: this is probably one of the most touristic beer gardens in Munich. That doesn’t mean it’s bad. Indeed it is one of the oldest and therefore mentioned in all city guides such as Lonely Planet. Worth going because of the architecture and it’s popularity. For a more authentic experience chose one of the others though!”

Restaurant
“Nage und Sauge has been a favorite with locals for many years. It’s simple but great food and the bar atmosphere make it the perfect place for starting your night out in Munich. If you had one of their good drinks too many, don’t worry, your bed is just across the street! Nice plus: they don't take reservations so despite its popularity with the locals, it's still ideal for spontaneous nights out.”

Steakhouse
“If you are spending your weekend in Munich with your kids and want to enjoy a relaxed Brunch look no further! The food and atmosphere at Brenner are amazing but the best thing is that they offer a kid's play corner on Sundays with kids supervision free of charge! Booking in advance is a good idea since the free nanny service has become quite popular with Munich's chic parents.”

Café
“In every student’s life, there comes a time when things get hectic and stressful: by surprisingly fast-approaching deadlines of unloved essay assignments, growing piles of unread books for class, neglected group presentations or threatening exams. What students in Munich tend to do in such situations of academic student angst, is to enclose themselves in one of the university libraries in order to finally get work done. But there is one essential problem: you’re not allowed to bring coffee to the library! So people a more than thrilled about the newly opened “Lost Weekend”, situated right on the ground floor of the philology department. The Lost Weekend is not the average coffee grab and go but an über-atmospheric hybrid of a café and a bookstore. Huge windows overlooking the quirky streets of the university area, large wooden tables, bare concrete walls and an inviting book corner create a cozy yet urban surrounding, where you can easily spend a couple of hours reading or chatting with friends. Since the coffee is great (not to mention the tasty cinnamon buns and sandwiches) and the opening hours are student-friendly, my work breaks here extend in time, while my library book pile gets more and more permanently transferred to this new favourite of mine. And if I’m not in a study mode at all, I flip through some of the graphic novels in the book section, enjoy one more latte or finally start finding out about Charles R. Jackson’s novel – “The Lost Weekend”.”
