    Superb room overlooking Karlplatz, elegant setting and perfect service conducted by a very professional and multilingual Maître d'. The sea bass coked in salt crust with artichokes and lemon is worth the trip. The pigeon from the Bresse region was perfectly cooked, melting and totally deboned. It's association with lightly smoked eggplants is a perfect combination of classic and creative cuisine. Rich cheese trolley but a few german cheeses would be a nice local addition. A small disappointment that no chocolate desert appears on the menu. The wine list deserves a medal for being exhaustive and reasonably priced Special mention for Gerald, the French sommelier whose recommendations are vey helpful. Amazingly he knows Munich much better than the (useless) concierge of the hotel and he will guide you to the best places in the city, even for a Sunday lunch !

    We ordered the specials of the day and we had a very enjoyable time. The service were friendly but could be a little bit more attentive to top up my wine! The food was perfect for a fine dining setting and the desserts were unique! Will have to come back to try the salt baked fish! A great restaurant with a view of the city walls and stachus.

    We have been fortunate to dine at many fine establishments around the world, and this restaurant ranks among the very best. With only one exception, the waitstaff was professional and friendly. The sommelier was especially helpful and impressive. However, the real star was the food. I was not enticed by the tasting menu, but my husband chose it and I regretted not choosing it, too, after tasting his! While the a la carte menu was not extensive, it still provided decent options.

    We dined on our wedding anniversary,the vegetarian food was specially turned out for us by chef. Taste was subtle, service was impeccable. Food was pricey!

    The restaurant does serve exquisite food of a very good quality and standard. Its not cheap, but worth trying. We paid 240 euros for 2 person, but it was worth it

    We stayed for one night in the hotel and had dinner with some friends in the restaurant. We all tried the menu with a flight of wine and it was impeccable food wise and the attention of the staff. No problem at all for the Gluten free choice for my wife. Every course was just well balanced and the choices of wine have been perfect for each food. It was an enjoyable evening in food, wine and company. Will try again when back in Munich.

    This was my first experience in a Michelin star restaurant, which is a surprise considering how much travelling I do and how much I enjoy food! I have been to some incredible restaurants around the world (one of my favourites is close to home in Banff, Canada) but I was excited to try a place that had earned a Michelin star. It was very nice- wonderful and fresh amuse bouche to start... finally finishing with the mini desserts to accompany the cappuccino. I would say that it is a classic, traditional place. Interesting combinations and flavours but nothing extraordinary. Possibly I am being too picky but for the high price you pay, it met my expectations but did not exceed them or excite me. It was a really pleasant, wonderful evening in for my husband and I on our honeymoon. Just don't set your expectations too high for anything new or exciting. The service was very attentive, though. And the food was definitely delicious... this little spot with wonderful views earned their star. I will say that my husband wasn't as pleased as I was because I enjoy subtle flavours more than him.

    What a wonderful evening. The food was amazing. Staff were impeccable. Everything timed perfectly, as it should be. The wine paired with the food was perfect! The Sommelier did his job and we loved what was picked. Thank you. (For those who don't speak a foreign language , speaking English was not a factor.)

    How did the Koenigshof only get one Michelin Star? The meal was exceptional! The martini was perfect and we had the full degustation matched with wine to follow. Every course was sublime - standouts were langoustine, pigeon and sweetbread. Flavours were delicate and perfectly balanced. The presentation was sublime. The cheese trolley was close to nirvana and the dessert well balanced and not too heavy, as can be the case at some Michelin star restaurants, where the pastry chef wants to demonstrate their worth, but the intensity or richness of the dessert is too much. That wasn't the case here. The entire menu was intelligent. This was reflected in each course individually and in how the sequence of courses developed. Wine matches were perfect and at times challenging but spot on. The sommelier was delightful, we aren't formal diners and the team responded to us as such, their capacity to read a table was clearly evident, the sommelier excelled at this. I could rave about the specific elements of the meal, it is easier to just say to go there. It is expensive but worth every Euro, it is close to the quality you will have with Thomas Keller in USA, Heston Blumenthal in the UK or Alan Ducasse in France. The evening was generous in food, wine and spirit. We loved it.

    So my wife and I are self proclaimed foodies. Our careers allow us to travel the world so we often find Michelin restaurants as part of our vacations. Since 2014 this is our 6th Michelin starred restaurant and after last night it is our favorite. The decor is elegant and tasteful. The wine selection and Sommelier are both incredible. The pairings were spot on. We had the 8 course, Martin Fauster menu with wine pairing. After a wonder amuse bouche the first two courses impressed us tremendously. It was Lake trout and king prawns. Then the third course came, which disappointed us. Mind you the first courses set our sights very high. It was Pollack with Berlin oyster with spinach and a pepper sauce. The oyster was very flavorful and the pepper sauce was "to die for". However the pollack was rather bland. Overall the dish was fine but we expected more. We weren't going to say anything as we were being very picky but they asked....so we did. The chef came out immediately and asked our opinions on how it could be better and then gave us the Seabass which was fantastic. The remaining courses were unbelievable and the dessert heavenly. We can't recommend this place enough. But order their tasting menus. They have excellent staff who are impeccably trained so let them give you a show. Enjoy.

    Although our friends and ourselves have lived in Munchen for many years and are not strangers to the Gastro Scene, we had never been to Königshof. We have friends who rate the restaurant as "the best" so at last we decided to give it a try. There was nobody in the foyer of the Hotel to guide us to the restaurant within the Hotel. We went to the first floor to be told we were 10 minutes too early but we were able to deposit our coats and the person who attended to us suggested we have a drink at the bar. "Where is the Bar"? Downstairs. So down we went and found the bar whereupon were greeted by a friendly young lady who asked us what she could do for us. Huh, what do you normally do in a bar? We had our drinks (unfortunately there was one very drunk man who was eventually removed by the police) and the manager offered us complimentary drinks at our table to make up for this. Enter the Holy Grail! we somehow didn't see the sign which suggested that you neither smile nor laugh. We were presented with the evening Menu but there were many items which didn't appeal to us. We asked for the A la Carte Menu and chose our food. The wine list took ages to be brought to us, but this was fast in comparison to our food. We sat down at 19.00 hrs and were served our main course at 21.10. In the meantime the wine steward took hold of our bottle of wine, held it up to the light and shook it as if to tell us there wasn't much more left in the bottle. Nice gesture but not really acceptable.! The first course Bretonische Gamba was awful and looked even worse. Someone had overdone the lemon/lime flavoring. The main course which 2 of us shared, Kalbskotelett (€120) was superb. The Wildente (€60) and the Wolfsbarsch (€62} couldn't compare with the food at Tantris or even our local Restaurant La Cucina. Sorry Königshof, it's time to say goodbye maybe after the renovation you will rethink what service is all about.

    Brilliant service, excellent menu with plenty of options and best of all a lovely atmosphere. A bit on the pricey side, but what the heck, you only live once.

    Great place to enjoy a wonderful meal with nice view. Staff were attentive, food was exceptional and the sommelier made the experience more enjoyable with his impressive knowledge and pairings for our courses. Good place for a romantic dinner.

    Beautiful room, excellent service, pricey. Fine dining which I'm really not crazy about but we enjoyed our evening. Deserts were fabulous. Very nice to receive amuse-bouche before and between courses.

    do not let yourself put off by the building's facade from the 80ies - once you are in the first floor of the hotel carrying the same name as the restaurant you'll get compensated in full by the great Restaurant view over Munich's busy Stachus square. The atmosphere could be described as a bit plushy, the 1-star Michelin cuisine is excellent, so is the service. One of the highlights is the very knowledgable and excessively charming Head Sommelier Mr Stephane Thuriot. Make sure you'll get his personal advice seasoned with his widely-trevelled sense of humor

    The menu is varied and has a nice variety. The tasting menu is very good and dishes were delightful. The wine list is large, but pairings are available. We were visiting Munich and decided to try the haute cuisine. The Michelin star was the draw. The food was amazing and loved how it was presented. The service, however was very very slow and wasn't perfectly timed between courses. Chef came to speak to guests but seemed to avoid tables where language barriers seemed evident. We were skipped, but it wasn't a big deal. Service just took too long. At end, we asked to have 2 of the desserts at once to speed it up. Other than the slowness, it was a pleasant experience and I agree with the single star. The dining room is very well decorated and very lovely, so it is nice for a romantic dinner or special occasions. Would go again.

    Excellent food, attentive and anticipating service, spot on wine selection by Sommelier. All in all a great culinary experience at lunch time.

    Everything was great about the restaurant: interior, services and of course food: it was original enough, of a high quality and the perfect food set was accompanied by a very nice wine set. Would defenitely return here once in Munich.
