Restaurant: Atelier ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Location: Bayerisch Hof Hotel, Munich
Highlight: Amuse bouche & deer 🦌 (Picture 7)
Chubby rate: 9/10
Price: 500++ € / Seven course with wine pairing
I'm a regular visitor in Munich due to my job, and my all time favourite restaurant is Atelier. A very very good restaurant. Always dined there everytime I’m in Munich. This time I decide to go for they new season 7-5 courses tasting menu. The food was excellent, from first amuse bouche to last dessert. Highlight that I really like they amuse bouche! Wine pairing was perfect supplement of the food. The service were outstanding with a young and talented team. This restaurant is a must visit when you are in Munich!!
Restaurant: Haerlin ⭐️⭐️
Location: Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten, Hamburg
Hightlight: Lobster 🦞 (Picture 3)
Chubby rating: 8/10
Price: 450++ € / 6 course with wine pairing
I went with the set (6 course) menu with accompanying wine menu and order some dish from the other set menu. Fish and lobster dishes were excellent. The following meat dishes were all very good, but missed the "wow-factor". Wonderful location with a nice ambience. The service is polite and attentive and the accoustic is good. My recommendation is if you go to Haerlin choose a bottle of wine from the wine list rather than the accompanying wine.
I didn't feel the wines properly matched or enhanced the food and were of less than perfect choices.
