80805 Munich, Germany
Why did we dine here? – Tantris was designed to be exotic and different. This restaurant has two Michelin stars (the only one in Munich) and stands out from the crowd with its crazy decor. We wanted to eat here as a fine dining contrast to all the meaty and loud restaurants we ate at. Check out our other Munich restaurant reviews.
The decor is modern and glitzy with lots of bold colors and cool silverware.
Insider Tip – Have a drink and appetizer in the upstairs lounge.
Cuisine – German
Location – Munich
Opened – 1971
Service – Tantris had excellent service. No worries with food recommendations, ample refills, and fresh napkins whenever we got up to hit the restroom.
Verdict – Tantris is an excellent restaurant in Munich. The decor almost overshadows the food. We rate the food excellent but slightly below 2 Michelin Star restaurants we have been to elsewhere.
Tantris Signature Dishes – Dove with marinated cabbage and black salsify.
Tantris’s Menu includes several tasting menus as well as a la carte options. The menu changes from time to time.
Tantris Food Picks:
Tages Cocktail (€15 ) was being pushed by the waiter as a special drink with a little curry and sparkling wine. This was an interesting combination.
Amuse Bouche of Deep fried dumpling with Perch and some excellent Gazpacho
Three excellent warm breads
5-course tasting menu – €150
Variation of char with marinated white asparagus and Yuzu – This was served in 3 different styles. A very good but not excellent dish.
Roasted sea bass with spinach, rocket polenta and sauce Mignonette – Much better than the previous dish, an interesting German style sauce.
Duck with foie gras – While California has this banned, we will eat it everywhere else. This dish was excellent with perfectly cooked medium-rare duck.
Goat curd tart – It sounded weird but this dish was truly an acquired taste.
Dessert of cherries and chocolate – This very good dessert included a warm chocolate cake along with some sour cream ice cream.
Diverse Fleischgerichte – Various meat dish (€38) – Included some nice sausages and potatoes that were served table side.
Ganselebervariation – Goose liver four ways (€45) – Included three different terrines, but proved to be good, not the best around.

Ausgeloster Hummersalat – Lobster Salad (€38) – A Bavarian lobster served with tomato and crispy chips, was a decent dish but pretty expensive.

Carre vom Lamm fur 1P – Lamb for one (€64) – Lamb for two was one of their signature dishes. The waiter was kind enough to allow us to order it for 1 person. The lamb’s saddle meat was slightly gamey, but tender and cooked to a nice medium-rare.
12 different petit fours including some nice chocolates and cakes. No need to order dessert!
OK: (Order if you like this dish)
Pans: (We would not reorder these dishes)
Mojito (13 €) was strong and not very balanced.
