Very nice setting either for groups or couples

The first thing to say about this place is that it is a bit hidden up an alley. But it is quite well signed so it shouldn't be too hard to find. I'd make the effort. In fact I did make the effort and will definitely do so again. We took a risk in going without a reservation and were... read more

We were recommended by our hotel to this restaurant but when we arrived they were full. We booked for the next evening and were asked to arrive early as they were catering for 60. This never really materialised so we were a bit put off by this. The food was good although the portions were not that large. It may... More

Came here with friends based on the recommendations here in trip advisor. The food is very good, we all enjoyed it. However, the service is so slow!! It took about 15 minutes to get our menus, and then another 15 to take our order. Time waiting for food orders was long as well. The restaurant was half empty, so no... More

Always top of my list when in Cologne and have gone several nights in a row. The menu has something for everyone but the big shrimps are my favourite. They will customize some dishes as well as I prefer my pasta sauce simple (garlic and olive oil) and they always do this for me. Remember tip is not included in... More

Great restaurant! On the way to our hotel so slightly off the beaten track but seriously recommend it. The interior is like a wine cellar and there is some beautiful stained glass. The staff were friendly and spoke English, and the food was just excellent. In comparison to other places in Cologne it seemed more expensive but when converted back... More

This restaurant is a bit hard to find as up an alleyway but make the effort as well worth it, great decor, exceptional food and good wine list. We couldn't fault anything. My wife wants to go again tomorrow night.

This is where you can found a Mediterranean ambient in Köln. This nice looking restaurant is proposing several international dishes. The fish I took was quiet good

This is neither the first time I visit Mederrano, neither the last. The food is great, the atmosphere is really good, the service is excellent and the value is really good. The place is a little difficult to find but worth the search.
