By far the best food, bar, staff and view for a dining experience in TSV. Don't care what the prices are - its worth it. Food is excellent - Bar menu is excellent and the staff is exceptional - and the view absolutely cannot be...More

We did the fondue night at the Bavarian and weren't disappointed. A very cool place, unique experience and a great wine list.

The food here is amazing! You get plenty of food. The price may be a little higher, but you are on a ski mountain, just enjoyed it.

Ordered the schnitzel which was so tough and overcooked it could have been a snow board in the Olympics! No gravy, squishy vegitables, undercooked onions, just a poor meal and unauthentic German food. (I lived in Germany for over 8 years!). Music was too loud...More

I believe they open at 5:30 pm on Sundays not sure what time they close. On the Shuttle I would call them to find out, I think they will pick you up at the Airport if you are staying there but don't think they will pick you... More
