My family of four (mom/dad & 2 kids -11 & 13) ate dinner here in Feb 2015. Their menu is only in German but the staff is very helpful and translated everything to English for us as needed. It's a small place, but very worth the high price for a wonderful dining experience. At 230 Euro including tip for the... More

My husband and I ate here during a ski trip to Garmisch. It was fabulous. Charming staff, modern but cosy decor and faultless cooking. Great wine recommendation and just a wonderful experience.

Third time at this place and it just keeps getting better! Family run restaurant with friendly staff. Unique presentation of dishes which all taste really good. They also have a nice selection of wines and other alcoholic drinks. Reservations are highly recommended. Normally, there is a zero change of just doing a walk in!

We visited this restaurant based on trip advisor reviews and agree with the recommendation! It was very nicely decorated and the staff were so friendly and charming. The food was excellent. We enjoyed pasta, osso buco, and duck - all entrees were exceptional. Meal and cocktails will be around $50 - 60 for two people.

Don't expect your typical Schweineshaxen and Schnitzel here. This is a fine dining establishment without being fussy. Book a table in advance as it can be difficult to get in. The restaurant is closed for a period in mid-November so that they can holiday before tourist season begins. Unforgettable Silvester dinner (though not cheap, it was worth it).

We were in Germany/Austria for 11 days and this, by far, was my favorite restaurant. We had enjoyed the bratwurst, wiener schnitzel, spaetzle, etc. but were ready for something different. We found it at Koch's. We were seated right next to the window that looks into the kitchen. It was a treat watching our meals being prepared. Everything was excellent,... More

Please go here. Of all the times we have visited Garmisch, I am bummed it took us this long to discover Koch's. The meal was an experience. Fantastically prepared food, yet very simple and delicious. The chef is very talented. The owners are absolutely delightful and entertained our 2 young children while we ate (total of 8 of us, 6... More

We had dinner here and did the chefs choice tasting menu with wine pairings. It couldn't have been any more perfect! Each dish was truly fantastic. The wines were beautifully paired and really complimented the dishes. The service was perfect. I loved everything about this place and would love to return on a future trip.
