I’m staying on the east side of Munich for a week. Anyone have restaurant recommendations? Any type of food is fine. Thx
We ate here in 2014 and 2018 and loved it both times - planning to hit up again this summer!
There are lots of good restaurants in Munich. If you happen to be visiting the Hofbräuhaus, this restaurant is nearby - https://www.opatija-restaurant.com/ . I always hae at least one meal there on each visit to Munich and the food is always good. They also have a branch in another part of the city, but I've never been there.
If you have easy access to Wasserburg from your place in the east of Munich by public transport: Weisses Rössl in the center. In Munich, many of the traditional beer halls are trimmed for tourism and the food is a caricature of Bavarian cuisine. The worst of all is the Hofbräuhaus, but a few others popular on this forum don't do quite flatteringly either. For my taste the best are the the Spatenhaus (a bit pricey), the Schneider Bräuhaus, and the Hackerhaus. Of the Augustiners, the Bräustüberl right by the brewery is by far the best. A good traditional inn south of the Vikualienmarkt (Reichenbachstrasse) is the Deutsche Eiche. Across of it is a good and inexpensive Italian (Monaco). If you're happy with a limited menu, the Pfälzer Weinstuben in the Residenz is a good address (actually a place for tasting Palatinate wines).
Haidhausen has lots of great restaurants and beer halls. I like Cafe Volia and the Haidhauser Augustiner on Wörthstraße. Hofbräukeller on Wienerplatz has a nice beer garden. Safran on Steinstraße is a really good Indian restaurant. Chopan is an excellent Afghani restaurant near the Gasteig. Le Faubourg good French food on Johannnis Platz. Taverna Paros on Kirchenstraße is a good Greek spot (usually have a fish special on Wed and it can get crowded). Vinaiolo on Steinstraße is one of the best Italian restaurants in Munich (also one of the most expensive but worth it).
Hope this helps,
We ate at Schneider Brauhaus last month. It was a friendly place and we enjoyed our meals. The second Opatija is permanently closed. We were going to eat there at the recommendation of our guide, but all of the outdoor tables were taken and it was one billion degrees (maybe an exaggeration) on the inside. We couldn't find anyplace with air conditioning so opted for the Rathskeller because it was much cooler down in the basement.
We enjoyed walking through and choosing lunch at Victualienmarkt.
Thank you all.
Are you in Munich right now? Currently Tollwood Summer Festival is ongoing (till July 17th).
Beside concerts, a craft market and other performances it offers 50 food stalls with organic food and drinks from over 20 nations, including many vegetarian and vegan treats.
In case you want to try something different it’s worth a visit.
That said it’s not in the East of Munich but in Olympiapark.
My wife’s favorite place to eat in Munich is Bratwurstherzl Am Viktualienmarkt. We’ll be back in Munich in August and I’d bet that will be one of our first stops.
