Pleasant address at the upper class area of Munich. The food is good, good selection of wines and good service. It claims Californian kitchen, but I consider it more as quite classic, e.g beef tartar, oysters, carpaccio, sole etc. Overall excellent products and well prepared....More

We ate 3 times on the balcony of the restaurant! Great ambiance! George the manager is tons of fun! Carpaccio was excellent! Also the pasta with mushrooms and the breaded veal is extra crispy ! Definitely a gem!

In the central area, the restaurant offers a mix of international cooking with some supposed Californian meat specialties. Lively environment, nice decor, more wine than beer. Prompt service. But everything is more appearence than substance. And you pat- quite a lot - for it.
