A were looking for a traditional German restaurant but stumbled into this place and were so pleased. The staff were super friendly and assisted with a loverly wine choice. No menus it was all on a chalk board and our helpful waiter happily translated it into English. Both veal and venison were well cooked and wonderfully tasty. I would recommend.

We got to our hotel in Cologne after 9pm. The Concierge at our Hotel (Excelsior) immediately told us where we had to go if we wanted Italian, he did not hesitate to say this was the best Italian restaurant in Cologne. I have not been to other Italian restaurants in Cologne, but I think he was right. The restaurant waited... More

I had a starter of tender swordfish on a bed of fresh summer tomatoes. I followed with an appetizer size portion of pasta with black truffles which was delicately seasoned. For dessert, sgroppino (lemon sorbet with prosecco and a dash of vodka)! Pricey but worth it. Probably the best meal I have had in Europe!

This restaurant was recommended to us by the Hilton down the road where we were staying. We were a group of nine, including one vegetarian and one coeliac. As we were a large group and they were busy, our waiter suggested he form a set menu with a few choices for us, which we agreed to. Starters were beef carpaccio... More

I would have loved to give a 'Very Good' or even an 'Excellent' to this restaurant. But we are far too disappointed due to a fatal mistake. We ordered the tuna steak, and the waiter correctly warned us that it would be grilled on the outside, but rare (bleu to saignant) on the inside, which we said we knew (of... More
