We went back up to 181 after 10 years. Pick a clear day because you want the views. The food is on par with a lot of places but you do pay for the view. You could just go to the viewing levels. The service doesn't measure up to the prices.

I was really looking forward to my meal at 181, but found the whole experience a let down. The view is nice but like any tower in most cities !! The restaurant itself is pretty tired and really needs a refurb for the prices that are charged. Toilets are a long walk away. Service was poor - soup served with... More

I'm not sure how many rotating restaurants there are but this one is great . The food was 5 star and the service impeccable and of course, great views over our favorite city, we live here. Nothing more to say really, if you're in town, go there!

Great experience in spite of the wobbly legs because of the height! Very limited menu, but the food was excellent. Service spot on, and the views were incredible.

The tower is quite amazing and reminiscent of the Roller Ball movie for those who have watched it (although only the BMW HQ and Audi arena can be seen in the movie) The view is really amazing and the restaurant rotates which is nice Food is really good and wine is affordable. Pleasant surprise and definitely above expectations There was... More

Well I'd heard a lot of mixed reviews before I'd settled on this place but I'm so glad I did! The only annoying thing was everyone had to pay €7 each to go up the lift to the viewing platform where the restaurant is. Even the birthday boy had to pay! Bit of a cheek. The restaurant is really amazing.... More

Serivce and cuisine are quiet average. Prices are a little bit overcharge. But panorama 360 degree view is remarkable! Your table goes all the way around about 45 min and you can see city o Munich, Bavarian Alps and many more
