Whether you want to have dinner & drinks with friends, enjoy a few beers at the bar or take your date out to a flirty location, Hey Luigi is your place to be. Located in the heart of Munich’s trendy district “Glockenbachviertel” close to the subway station “Frauenhoferstrasse” this restaurant offers you the best value for money and its cozy and unique atmosphere invites everybody to stay.
The first thing you notice when entering the restaurant is the funky wall decoration – just sit down at your table and look above you… there might be some animals to spot :). The interior is basically made from dark wood – which looks really cool at night, when each table is illuminated by a single candle. Due to this candlelight and the cool and casual atmosphere Hey Luigi is also very recommendable as a (first) date location. In case your date goes well, you have even the possibility to stay for drinks after dinner, since the bar offers quite a good range of cocktails and long drinks.
The standard menu offers Italian food as pasta and meat dishes (but no pizza, only on Sundays special wood-stove pizza is offered!) but also a range of large and tasty salads with add-ons as halloumi cheese, meat or scampi. The food is really delicious (we would refer to it as soul food) and the prices are comparably low which provides probably the best value for money in Munich. For example, the prices for the aforementioned large salads range from 9 – 15 EUR. Since we have been to Hey Luigi on a Sunday the last time, we had also the chance to try the famous wood-stove pizza – yummy :). But the salads are definitely worth a try, too… so you might wanna share dishes in order to experience more at once :). What we also like especially about this location is the fact that you can enjoy just drinks and are not required to have dinner in order to get a table – but you would miss out on the food so you might wanna reconsider :).
Moreover, the young staff is really nice and attentive although it might take them some time to take your order on weekends since the place is usually packed. In addition to the typical long drinks and cocktails, Hey Luigi also serves some special creations and of course the famous must-try shot “Liquid Cocaine”… it is espresso mixed with vodka, sugar and a secret ingredient and even if you expect otherwise, it’s absolutely delicious as well as energizing. Just try it! Although Hey Luigi is quite big in comparison to many other restaurants in the district and has also about 15 bar stools in addition to the tables, it is absolutely advisable to make reservations, especially if your group consists of more than 2 people and/or you intend to check out Hey Luigi on the weekends. In our opinion this place is a great location to start your night out in the Glockenbach district – no matter who you are with! Go to Hey Luigi website
