Sophia’s Restaurant & Bar

Top chef Michael Hüsken, already well-known to Munich's gastro public through his work at Schloss Elmau and in the Michelin-starred restaurant Werneckhof, continues to impress at Sophia's with refined Italian cuisine, emphasising the changing seasons with imaginatively prepared dishes. In an airy, light and delightfully arranged dining space, the competent staff offer fine wines from a well-thought-out international wine list.

Heinrich Matters

The new place-to-be in Maxvorstadt: a cosy, casual café-restaurant with a shabby-chic look, where you can feel comfortable all day long, from breakfast through to dinner. The decorative interior perfectly complements the lovingly prepared dishes which include vegetarian options. The key focus is on regional and organic fare.

Vecchia Lanterna

In the elegant neighbourhood of Lehel, gourmet chef Antonino Denami has presented authentic Italian cuisine for over 10 years – seasonal produce, originally prepared but never over-the-top. The ambience is stylish and modern with designer lamps adorning the airy salon, where Denamis’ wife Mirka Otta offers noble selections from an extensive wine list.
