Here are some of my favourite restaurants. I have provided contact information, when I have it.

The Dalmatiner Grill (Web-Site)

Kerala Restaurant (Web-Site)

Schumann Str.9, 81679 München.

Brasserie France (Web-Site)

Øvre Slottsgate 16, 0157 Oslo.
A classic French restaurant in the heart of Oslo. An excellent menu, very efficient and friendly service, and a great wine list (at typical Oslo prices, of course). Most days of the week you will need to book. Tel: +47 23 10 01 65

L'Angolo della Pizza (Web-Site)

Breisacherstraße 30, 81667 München (Haidhausen), Germany.
As you can tell from the name, this is a restaurant/pizzeria rather than fine Italian dining. Nevertheless the food and service are both very good for a restaurant of this class. Prices are reasonable. The place is very popular, so you will need to book, whatever day of the week it is. Tel: +49 89 448 89 79

The Master's Home Frauenstraße 11
80469 Munich.

A really fun restaurant. After a cocktail in the bar, and a tour around the rooms (all decorated and furnished as a colonial settler's house in Zimbabwe - Rhodesia, as it was then), you can sit down to your surpise menu.

The staff are friendly and efficient, The food (mainly French & Italian style) is absolutely fantastic. The tables are beautifully decked, and the dining room is lavishly decorated.

Tel: +49 89 22 9909
Sushi Cent Schneckenburgerstraße 31
81675 Munich (Haidhausen - actually the entrance is at Grillpaarzerstraße 38).

Not just a sushi bar, but a nice low-priced Japanese restaurant. The staff are very friendly. Service is excellent.

The sushi & sashimi (which I prefer over sushi) is excellent and freshly made. The menu of hot dishes is not huge, but also excellent. They have some good wines.

As well as a restaurant, you can order food to take away, or have it delivered.

Tel: +49 89 475 834
Rusticana (web-site in German & English) Grillparzerstraße 5
81675 Munich (Haidhausen).

Really excellent steaks and ribs, very popular with American tourists.

The ribs are famous throughout Munich (people get take-away ribs to take to the beer gardens in the summer); the steaks are properly ripened, and when you order "rare", it is rare; the sides (tomato salad, coleslaw, etc.) are also fantastic.

It can be a bit cramped at the tables and the bar, and you might be asked to share a table with strangers.

The major negative is that they server Spaten beer, which is nasty, which is why I either drink Weissbier or wine when there. Always busy, so you need to book.

Friendly service. English menus are available, and the staff speak English.
