“Top quality in Garmisch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

This is really the best restaurant in all Garmisch and one of the best I ate in my life, great food, nice staff, every days new recipes and the chef often chat with the customer so to be sure everything is ok and to explain what they prepared.
The price is very good related to the level of the food and the quality.
very good wines available.
Very nice and modern restaurant style.
In my opinion this is a must in Garmisch!

“Best duck breast ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

We ate here our last night and loved it. It was by far the best food we ate in Garmisch. We did make reservations but probably didn't need them on a Monday. We both ordered the tasting menu which was excellent. The sauerkraut soup was unexpectedly good - I was very skeptical. It was smooth and creamy. The Spaghetti putanesca was delicious. Best of all, however, was the marinated, slow roasted duck breast. It was tender and smoky. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and felt that it was well worth the price. We would definitely go back.

“Lovely food and excellent service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2011

We stayed in Garmisch in September 2011 for 1 week and we visited this restaurant twice. We saw it one day while passing by and decided to try it out the following evening as we thought it looked lovely inside. As we arrived we were shown to a lovely table by a very pleasant waitress and we asked for an english menu. After a couple of mins a lovely lady came to us with a German menu in her hand and explained every single item on the menu to us. She helped us choose our food and wine and explained that the menu changes every few days so therfore they don't always have an english menu. My partner had a carrot and coconut soup with scampi for his starter and he said it was the best soup he has ever had. The rest of the food did not dissappoint either. We had lovely wine and the service was brilliant. We enjoyed our evening so much that we made a reservation before leaving for the Friday night which was to be our last night in Garmisch. Our 2nd visit was equally if not even more enjoyable and we had some lovely homemade wine as well. The same lady was there to help us with our choices and our food was once again really nice. If I was to return to Garmisch I would definitely return to this lovely restaurant.

“Excellent choice - best in Garmisch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2011

Food is simply excellent; seems all they have are signature dishes, all home made and bursting of authentic flavour. Garmisch has many bavarian style restaurants, and definitely good ones too, but when looking for something else this is an excellent choice!
