First of all the name is funny. Try saying it in front of your kids... or try typing it in the TripAdvisor review (it will flag your review for profanity). We came here on a friend's recommendation. We walked in on a Saturday night with no reservation hoping we could get a table for four. The staff was very helpful, offering us two two-top tables near each other (our boys are 12 and 7, so they enjoyed the opportunity to act like grown ups).
The menus are printed in German and English, although the inserts for the daily specials are only printed in German. Our waitress was happy to answer any questions we had about the options on the menu. My wife and I ordered off the daily special menu, and our kids went for the spaghetti option. The potato soup mentioned in numerous other reviews is amazing, and the side salad they make could be a meal in itself. Many other diners in the restaurant had the full-size salads, and they looked amazing.
Our entrees, gnocchi and ricotta-stuffed spinach pasta, were absolutely amazing, and my 12 year old declared the kids' spaghetti to be "the best he's ever had".
Staff: Friendly and eager to help. We knew we might not be able to get a table without a reservation, but they were more than happy to accommodate our family.
Ambiance: Great small seating area. Close enough to feel intimate, but without feeling like you're creeping in on the people sitting around you.
Food: Our appetizers, salads, soup, and entrees were great. We plan on coming back here when we're in Garmisch again, although hopefully earlier in the day to try their potato pancakes.
Kids: This would be the one caveat if you have picky eaters. In our experience, most German restaurants have the fallback of chicken fingers and/or cheese pizza for kids menu options. At Mukkefuch, the ONE and ONLY kids menu item is the kids' spaghetti. Our kids loved it, but just something to think about before you march the little ones into the restaurant.
