Munich’s Michelin master
Having held its coveted double-Michelin-star status for more than 22 years, Tantris is one of Germany’s most famous restaurants. Strikingly decorated in a mix of contrasting red and black, it is acclaimed for its international French cuisine. Sample a five-course tasting menu for €150, with complementing wines (from a selection of 35,000) for €80. Most dishes are seafood-based – and all are delicately delicious, so it’s no surprise that diners have included Christina Aguilera and Yves Saint Laurent.

Tegernseer Tal Bräuhaus
A new yet old-style wirtshaus (traditional restaurant specialising in German food and beer on tap) that opened in 2013, this Bavarian kitchen serves everything you’d expect - from roast pork with dumplings to schnitzel and pretzels. Cosy up in the homely, authentic atmosphere as you browse through the menus printed into old text books and mingle with the locals on communal tables… all in all a true German experience.

Best for hotel dining
A Michelin-starred restaurant set within the stylish Mandarin Oriental, Mark’s serves French dishes with an Asian twist. Climb the ornate staircase and you’ll be stunned by views across the streets and spires of the Old Town in a romantic venue that serves some of the city’s best seafood and seasonal fare. Renaissance charm is complimented by piano music to provide the perfect backdrop for sampling such dishes as lobster, fresh fish from Brittany, and 300 exclusive vintages from the wine cellar.

Wirtshaus In Der Au
Dumplings to die for
Book yourself in on the dumpling cookery course at this modern yet thoroughly traditional Bavarian restaurant, or simply come here to sample the speciality itself. The large indoor dining space is welcoming in winter, while the beer garden is idyllic in summer – choose from a selection of schnapps (think apricot and damson) and sit in the sunshine. Look out for monthly events including jazz concerts and waltzing evenings and don’t miss the seasonal dining menu.

Never the same menu twice
You could dine here every day and enjoy a different menu because, at Broeding, the exclusive six-course offering varies every day. Quiet yet warm and welcoming, this unique restaurant is deserving of its rave reviews and offers dishes such as sautéed rabbit’s liver and pork in hollandaise on the great-value €74 menu. There’s an option to add wine on a corresponding list created by the savvy sommelier. Not to be missed.
