After reading the reviews and REALLY missing a fresh, healthy & delicious meal, we decided to give Vaun a try. We were absolutely blown away! This restaurant is an absolute gem...from the casually elegant ambiance to the friendly, happy staff and the fresh, local, delicious menu, a meal at Vaun is indeed worth the trip to Garmisch-Partenkirchen in itself!
The owner is very welcoming, friendly, speaks great English and is obviously passionate about the philosophy of her restaurant; fresh, local, seasonal, "slow-cooked" food for the body & soul. There were 4 entree items offered the night we were there and we decided to try one of each (since there were 4 of us). The jury is still out on which was our favorite as they were ALL fantastic! The wine was delicious & inexpensive, too. Our only complaint was that we didn't have enough room in our stomachs to try the desserts (next time!).
Call for a reservation and sit outside on the patio (if possible) and enjoy the beautiful view of Alpspitze and Zugspitze. Normally, we wouldn't bring our [older] children to a restaurant like this (as they wouldn't normally appreciate it), but we did this time and they both devoured their dishes! A great lesson for them that real food CAN be delicious!
We are already discussing plans to return to Garmisch and Vaun will be at the top of our list!
