The food is very good but quite expensive. The restaurant is located in a five star hotel called Exelsior Hotel Ernst

Very nice restaurant with excellent food and great service. The restaurant is inside Hotel Excelsior Ernst and from the outside there is no sign for the restaurant. So you have to know about it. Be aware that this is not a casual place and that you have to be smartly dressed. Close to the Dome and Haupt Bahnhof.

We came across Hans-Stube on Trip Advisor when we were stopping over in Koln for a night about a year ago, it was a lovely place and great food so when decided to visit Koln again for our anniversary we had to go back. It happened to be Valentines Day and the atmosphere was great in the restaurant. We had... More

I dine at Hanse Stube twice in August 2013 as I was testing it out for a family dinner in December. I had the set menu the first time and it was excellent and well priced for a Michelin star restaurant. The second time I ordered a la carte and again it was excellent. The service is excellent without being... More

Did not turn out to be top notch as other times as Menu was not perfectly chosen. Starters were ok, Desert was outstanding, main course was ok. Place is incredible, service cannot get better.

I stayed at the Excelsior hotel and the breakfast is provided by this restaurant. Good food and excellent services. Beware of the Chinese dim sum, some pork ingredient has not been fully cooked. In fact, it is half fresh meet........carefully!

This lovely restaurant reminds of those great old establishments in great Vienna, were you can find the three most important ingredients for a great meal: Excellent regional and traditional food prepared in first class standards (redundant novel cuisine sophistications – OUT!), professional and kind service, elegant and warm designed venue. This lovely restaurant, surprisingly the only restaurant in Cologne that... More

We stayed at the Excelsior hotel and dined out at the Hans Stube one evening. Price was around 250 Euros but we ordered the "wine after every course" selection so you could eat for much less. It truly was a meal to remember and was without a doubt the best meal we had in our three weels in Germany. I... More
