“The best in GAP”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

I can't remember ever leaving a review for a restaurant. However, Cafe Vaun is good enough that it has inspired me to do it for the first time. While there are some good restaurants in GAP, none quite match the excellence of Cafe VAUN. I've lived here for about 2 years, and my biggest regret is that I've did not discover it sooner. There is not much more that I think can be said that hasn't been already. Since the menu rotates every 3 weeks, the biggest challenge is in trying everything it gets switched again! Mirjam, is super friendly and really goes out f her way to provide the best service possible.

“Hidden GEM in Garmisch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

Romantic - friendly staff and yummi food. Not your typical german schnitzel dinners served here but gourmet dishes set in a moderen setting. I would recommend this place run by a couple who loves what they do and wants to share the love of food with everyone. The menu changes every three weeks and are never repeated. ! Awesome experience - will def triple return again :)

“An excellent alternative to local Bavarian fare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

Gourmet dishes that are delicious without being overly fussy, and feature many fresh farm-to-table ingredients (recently pork from pigs the owners had raised themselves). The restaurant design is similarly elegant yet minimalist. The small menu is consistently excellent and changes every three weeks for plenty of variety; there is also a new special daily. The couple who own and run Vaun provide outstanding service.

“Excellent food (also heart healthy & veg*n options), super-friendly staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

If you are in Garmisch, don't miss the chance to eat at Vaun! The couple who own the place are terrific - the lovely Mirjam speaks perfect English and the talented Lorenz is flexible and creative, willing to work with guests to give you a great meal no matter what your dietary preferences! They make all kinds of delicious dishes from local, in-season, fresh sources. From appetizers through soups and salads, main courses, to incredible desserts, you can't go wrong! (Don't miss the fat-free but wonderful cookies if you're going to be going for a walk through town after you eat. Even if you're satisfied from your meal, odds are good that your cookie won't make it back to your home or hotel room!)

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2012

My friends and I were referred to Vaun by a tour guide in Garmisch, and it was more than we'd expected. This is a small restaurant with a limited menu, but don't let that fool you! Everything we had there was perfect, and the service was fast and personable. The prices were very reasonable for the quality of food, and the portion size was perfect. The menu changes periodically, but if you are lucky enough to find the saltimboca it has my highest recommendation. This restaurant is an absolute gem!
