Makassar is in a lesser-known part of Munich called the Schlachthofviertel. That roughly translates to the "meat packing district" of Munich. It is a bit industrial in spots, but with an Old World charm, and it's a good place to find up and coming restaurants with a lot of character and modern appeal.
Makassar describes its cuisine as "French colonial" which basically means that it is French fusion, leaning heavily on Caribbean and Asian influences. And its really good. I went there with a group of French colleagues, and to be honest, I was a little nervous that the restaurant would be far below their standard. But we were universally pleased with both the food and the service. The shared appetizer plates were really fantastic- a mixture of salad, crusted shrimp, and fish balls. The main courses - fish, beef, lamb, duck - were all perfectly cooked and drizzled with aromatic sauces. And everyone raved about their desserts, including tarte tatin, creme brulée, and mascarpone cream with fresh fruit.
This was a great place to go with a large group (we were 10), and I highly recommend it as a "special occasion" dinner.
I have no pictures because it was unplanned! And the food smelled so good, I could never wait long enough to snap a photo first.
