Very attentive service from knowledgeable and friendly staff. Wine list is enormous! We chose a Spatburgunder for about €60.00 a bottle. A little extravagant, but quality was tremendous. Food was excellent too. Would definitely visit again!

I had lamb with chick peas and mint yoghurt. Lamb cooked perfectly but the remainder was bland and unseasoned though looked fab on the plate. Trio of creme brûlée interesting but could have had more flavour distinction between them too. Slow cooked beef again not seasoned well and gravy bland but good otherwise. Cheese board fab

I guess I was expecting to be amazed as it's rated so highly, but I've eaten in better and the menu was quite limited. It's a nice meal but not a memorable one, sorry!

My wife and I went here for dinner last night. The bubbly and genuinely lovely staff did everything to make us comfortable and welcome. The 3 course set menu with wines at 65€ was a total bargain and simply delightful. I loved the atmosphere and the old and rare (albeit sadly empty) wine bottles that add to this. The wine... More

My husband and I went to Geisel's Vinothek one evening as a special birthday celebration. We were able to get a seat without a reservation (probably because everyone was at Oktoberfest) and the service was excellent. At the beginning of the meal, they lit a brand new candle at our table which I thought was a nice touch. We decided... More

Description
Dieses Weinrestaurant und Weinbar im Herzen Munchens teilt mit seinen Gasten eine grosse Leidenschaft: die Begeisterung fur gutes Essen und ausgezeichnete Weine. Bis zu 20 Rebsorten im offenen Ausschank und rund 700 Flaschenweine aus aller Welt bieten eine Auswahl, bei der kein Wunsch unerfullt bleibt. Das gilt auch fur die Kulinarik: In Geisel's Vinothek weiss man mit hausgemachten Pasta, frisch geschnittenem San Daniele Schinken und den besten Gerichten aus der mediterran angehauchten, bayerischen Kuche zu uberzeugen. Gastgeber der Vinothek in Munchen Robert Zeller ist ubrigens dafur bekannt, unter den offenen Weinen stets eine Auswahl sehr hochkaratiger Tropfen bereit zu halten.
