Take a lovely place in the heart of Munich, take then some talented and motivated young people, add a lot of passion: welcome to Roecklplatz! A restaurant not like the others:  “das Ausbildungsrestaurant”.  The project? giving a chance to young people to get a gastronomic training and a first hands-on job experience by offering training courses from service to cooking… A unique collaborative project of social work and free enterprise!  The result? After the break…

The location:

Roecklplatz is located in the Dreimühlenviertel close to the Isar, in the Isartalstraße 26 (map). The surrounding area is very attractive, with lots of big trees, a playground for the kids, and many other cafés and terrasses all around the place. The closest U-bahn is U6 – Poccistraße, but if the weather is nice you can also take the chance to walk along the Isar to get there and get a feel for this very nice area.

The atmosphere:

We think this project reinforces the sense of unity and belonging not only of the “Roecklteam” but also of the guests and thereby creates a very special atmosphere in the restaurant. Everybody seems conscious of contributing to the project and doing something with purpose. Roecklplatz was was honored in 2010 with the Federal Cross of Merit. The decor inside is modern yet comfy and a balanced mix of materials and lights. The beer garden is really charming too, with a lantern chain all around, ideal also for a romantic dinner or an evening with friends!

The fffoood:

Roecklplatz is definitely edging on continental traditional cuisine with a small touch of modernity: special attention is taken for the presentation of the food in the plates: not only does it look like your meal was crafted with care, but it also tastes as it looks. Every 2-3 weeks, the main menu changes following seasonal products… Another reason to go back to Roecklplatz every now and then! Check the current menu out on their website here and here for the regular menu.

Prices range from 10€ to 22€ per dish. There is also the menu options which allows you to enjoy and/or a starter in addition to the main course. Average of 30€ to 60€ per person including drinks which is in our opinion a fair price considering the effort that is needed to make such a project successful.
