Booking comes highly recommended at this cosy Haidhausen joint which serves exquisite Mediterranean dishes and feels homey all year round. In a 19th-century building on a quiet, largely residential street, Preysinggarten has a simply clad interior with fresh flowers, candlelight and specials on a blackboard. It wins extra points for its excellent vegan and veggie options (until recently, a rarity in Munich) and exceptionally friendly service; visitors young and old, local and new in town, are all welcomed as regulars. (The venue is super-kid-friendly, with a playground out back.) In warm weather, the courtyard is lovely, particularly for a long, lazy Sunday brunch.
From world-class museums and concert venues to midnight bazaars and a singular glockenspiel, this city overflows with brilliant attractions and things to do. But top of your list as soon as you’ve landed should be a tip-top hearty meal at one of the best restaurants in Munich – because few cities do comfort food better than this.
For inspiration, Munich generally looks south, towards the Alps, with meals generous in quality and quantity, and further on to Italy, with an ever-growing number of addresses specialising in fresh Mediterranean dishes. If you’re after a Munich classic, head to a Wirtshaus, a pub-restaurant that chucks together brilliant platefuls of roast meats and schnitzel, often served amid dashing old-world décor and furnishing.
Renowned for its meat-heavy cuisine Munich may be, but in recent years the city has started to embrace vegetarian and vegan restaurants too. And befitting such an outward-looking, cosmopolitan city, there are also high-quality restaurants from around the world, from Indian to Mexican. These are 12 of the best.
