First of all you have to find this place. On the opposite side of Heumarkt Square - look for the Maritim Hotel. Across the road off Pippinstrasse. Very pleasant restaurant offering cross-cultural cuisine. My wife and I both enjoyed the veal wrapped in parma ham. Tasted every bit as good as it sounds.

Very cozy place.Quiet and friendly staff.Not a big variety on the menu however, quality was good and price was not expensive.Close to the hotel where we stayed and close to the city centre.

If you find the restaurant (not clearly visible on the citymap) you are immedeately treated with nice vaulting and pitoresque ambiance. The restaurant is split in two parts. On the left side are the vaults and on the right side is a "normal" look. Unfortunately we were on the right side because of a wedding, but still quite a romantic... More

The first time we visited Mederrano, 2 years ago, we felt very lucky to find such a great place to eat in Cologne. Unfortunately on our second visit that was not the case. The restaurant was packed probably because of the fair and only a set menu was available. To our disappointment the restaurant couldn’t cope serving so many people,... More

We made a booking for 6 people. When we arrived there they told us that due to they were fully booked one could not order from the menue. The only offer was a set menue wit a choice of 2 starters (carpaccio or prawns), 2 main courses(fish or beef), 2 desserts (no vegetarian offer). The waiters were neither friendly nor... More

Mederrano is hidden on a small street, one block south of the Heumarkt tram stop. It's inside the ruins of a Roman-era villa, but with modern buildings atop that hide the history. Too bad it's a short walk outside the tourist area of Cologne. The restaurant itself is quite lovely with very good food from German and Italian cuisines. Service... More

The restaurant was listed in the Insomnia brochure which reviews restaurants and other sites in Cologne. Their write up sounded good so went. Had an amazing fresh fish meal, great wine and dinner for two with starters, main and desert with two 1/2 litres of local wine was under 100 Euro. Great castle like ambiance with superb service.

It's a hidden treasure, and very much worth searching for. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, based in the old wine cellar of an aristocratic house with beautiful vaulting. The food was excellent, the most tender beef filet I had in 10 days in Cologne and so much nicer than all the touristic places in the Altstad.The waiter is very... More

Visited this place for a lovely meal during February 2012, the interior was very cool with some very nice paintings on the walls. The waiters were very friendly and attentive, even if their English wasn't the best, and the food came out very quickly and tasted beautiful. Had the crème brûlée for desert Our only complaint would be that it... More
