What a wonderful experience! This is the first time we have been here but were with friends who had been a few times before. It was simply a great experience all evening in how "fine dining" should be. We all went for the 4 course Uberraschungsmenu (surprise menu) and every course was outstanding. The wine we chose was also very... More

The surprise dinner menu was nice - good food (not amazing, but well prepared and tasty), albeit rather expensive. Their wine selection is brilliant, the restaurant is worth visiting even just to get a few tips on good wines ;)

Friends of ours recommended Wein am Rhein and we are so glad they did. We decided to try their Überraschungsmenü or Surprise menu which at €48,00 per person for a 4 course meal is a great value. I will admit, I am a picky eater so was a little apprehensive about doing a surprise menu but you can let them... More

Enough with the beer gardens. I wanted a sit-down fancy place. Modern and clean. Friendly and efficient front staff. Ceiling consisted of deflated paper lanterns. 4 course = 48,00 euros (BARGAIN) Appetizer, soup, meat entree, and dessert. All courses were beautifully presented and delicious. Loved the meat entree the best. Able to relax with a bottle of Reisling for 38... More

Very nice, contemporary setting. Attentive front reception who kindly checked our coats and took us to our reserved table efficiently. Lovely food and wine. Somewhat expensive, but service and food matched the cost well.

Was recommended this restaurant by some colleagues who were visiting for a trade show. Best recommendation for a long time. Some of the finest food Ive ever eaten. The cod starter, pork belly and poppy ice cream were not only incredibly delicious but well presented supplied with efficient and super service. The restaurant atmosphere was good despite being quiet and... More

Had two meals at this excellent restaurant during a business week spent in Cologne. Imaginative, very well prepared "New Austrian" cuisine. A very sleek, bright, modern space a 3 minute walk from the Kommerz Hotel (therefore 3 1/2 minutes from the central train station). All soups/meats/fish/desserts were wonderful. Very attentive service. Reservations a must. a very pleasant change from the... More

I agree with all the good things said about this restaurant. The food, service and atmosphere are wonderful. The wine list is, obviously, a good read! But I wanted to add that I am a vegetarian and there are no vegetarian dishes on the menu. Despite this, the chef made for me the most wonderful vegetarian version of the dishes... More

Everything about our meal was fantastic - the food, the wine, the service, the ambience, and very good value for money. We had the 5 course surprise menu - this isn't simply a series of courses off the main menu but rather, dishes that the chef feels like making that evening. We put ourselves completely in the chef's hands and... More

This is a splendid wine bar with an excellent kitchen. They keep two dozen wines available by the glass (from 4 to 6 euros, depending), perfect for tasting. The menu is interesting and very well prepared. I had the modestly priced (49 euro) "surprise" tasting menu and each plate was delicious - worthy of a top restaurant anywhere in the... More
