Had a wonderful meal of duck at Koch's. Very personal service and nice being able to watch the food being prepared. Love how dog friendly they are as well!

After a long day of sight-seeing, our party of four decided to have dinner in Garmisch. We lucked into Koch's, and are so glad we did. The food was fantastic--a sophisticated take on traditional dishes, each delicious and beautifully presented. The service was impeccable yet friendly. Our servers were fluent in English as well as German (and maybe others that... More

Brilliant service from the owners, including the chef who comes out to take your order so he can talk you through the menu. The food was fantastic too. Set menus on offer but you can take your pick from the seasonal and freshly prepared dishes a la carte as well. Totally worth a visit

This is not a vegan restaurant but we had a great vegan meal as we warned them in advance. Mustard/almond milk cream soup with pickled radishes. Wild mushroom soup. And the best pistachio risotto with sweet cherries on top. Coco nut sorbet made with its own milk was a great hit and ordered twice at our table.

As we had not been on a rush, we thoroughly enjoyed our experience, as the food is very creative and tasty. Also the wine selection may be small, but is highly recommended. We'll be back for a special occasion.

We were set up here to celebrate a birthday by our guide, Jake Doherty. The chef and his wife are such a sweet couple. The fusion of local and traditional ingredients and dishes is the best example of culinary imagination we have found in many places!

This was the last restraint we enjoyed during out week-long stay in Garmisch and it THE BEST! It was a fabulous evening from the greeting at the door, to the service and suggestions throughout the evening to the marvelous, fresh food to the perfect wines. I wish every town had a restaurant like this. The food is truly prepared with... More
