I found this restaurant/cafe/bar absolutely by chance one day when I was biking around the Isar river. By the way – if you are new to Munich, you should get a bike. This is the best way to experience the city.
So it was a hot summer day and I saw the small tables of this cafe from the bridge over the Isar and I made a mental note to visit it. One year later it is probably one of my most favorite spots to eat.
First, the location is amazing. Not only in summer, because you are close to the river, but also in winter, because the restaurant has an amazing design inside of the Müllerschen Volksbad. Yes, the restaurant is inside of a public bath, an excellent example of Baroque Revival architecture. The building is very beautiful and when it is warm, you can sit outside between tangerine and olive trees. Being also close to the river, it is nice and cool even during a heatwave.
The food is great, but if I have to recommend something, it would be the fresh fish soup. Mmm, my favorite! Or if you feel creative – just take a sauna at the Volksbad and stay there for dinner!
