Do you love steak? Do you like wine or gin? Then Little London Bar and Grill may be the perfect restaurant for you. Just so we’re clear, I’m not connected to the restaurant in any way, but it certainly is one of my new favorite restaurants in Munich.
I found this gem of a steakhouse after looking at the TripAdvisor Travelers Choice Awards. I was looking for places to eat for a trip to Germany (which took place in August 2021) and Little London Bar was noted as one of the top 10 restaurants for fine dining in Germany. After looking up reviews on Google as well, I decided to give it a try. Keep reading to find out why you should give this place a try, too!
One of the most important things to note about Little London Bar and Grill is that the service was probably the best of any restaurant I’ve eaten at in Munich. From beginning to end, our waitress was very attentive and extremely helpful with trying to decide what to order. This included giving recommendations on sauces for the steaks and choosing a wine for the table based on what we said we liked. She picked out a wine that both my husband and I liked (which is hard to do with him not being too big of a fan of wine).
Another aspect of the excellent service at Little London is the fact that every one of the staff we talked to spoke really good English and had no problem speaking English with us. This isn’t typically the case for many restaurants, as most staff we encountered at restaurants in Germany spoke limited English or preferred not to speak it. I completely understand this, however, since I know only a small amount of German.
First, the menu. While it isn’t very extensive, the choices that are on the menu are good, especially if you like steak. Even if you aren’t a fan of steak, there are still several decent choices. While we didn’t try any of the starters, there are definitely some unique and high-end options, such as Goat Cheese Creme Brulee, Ora King Salmon, and Truffle Risotto.
Both my husband and I chose the Filet Mignon since it’s our favorite cut. However, there’s no shortage of choice when it comes to steaks at Little London Bar and Grill. There’s also Tomahawk, Picanha, T-Bone, Porterhouse, Chateaubriand, and more. I honestly have to say that the Filet Mignon was cooked perfectly at medium rare. This was the best steak I’ve had at any restaurant. We also got the chimichurri sauce and the sauce bearnaise, but while the sauces were good, the steak still tasted great without them.
As for sides, we ordered the Sauteed Mushrooms and Sweet Potato Puree. Both were delicious, but the sweet potato puree might be a tad too sweet for some people. Now for dessert. I don’t remember what the dish was called, but it was definitely interesting. In fact, all of the desserts sounded interesting and looked like art.
Let me start by saying that Little London Bar and Grill is a place for special occasions, unless you normally drop over $100 for dinner on a regular basis. Just the food alone totaled around $130, which doesn’t include our two cocktails to start off the meal (which were a great Whiskey Sour) and our two glasses of wine. So I think in all, the meal cost around $200. Even though the restaurant is expensive, I would highly recommend splurging for a meal here for a special occasion or if you’re looking to splurge a bit during a visit to Munich.
