I was curious to go there because of its name. In fact they have four different restaurants and this is one of them. The other three are - Monkey Room, Monkey east, Monkey north. On weekend, I assume a reservation will be required. On other days, you can get place easily. The restaurant has nice ambience inside and they also... More

Some of the dishes were good but not so good that I remember them now, after a few months. But I just found the sales slip for 255 euro. This gave us at least 5 courses, a bottle of a good wine (at 45 euro, shop price 11 euro) and a bottle of sparkling water at 8 euro. It is... More

Loved the Ambiance of the restaurant, but didn't enjoy the food that much though. Heard it was a really good restaurant, but maybe it didn't suit my taste.

Monkey's West is part of a dining complex in the centre of Duesseldorf, near famous Koenigsallee. It's one the the most highly rated restaurants in town, with 1 star in Guide Michelin and 16 points in Gault Millau. Does it deliver? The ambience definitely is up there. It's a nice and modern place with an interesting decor, artsy, but not... More

The setting is great, design, spacious tables and pleasant service. The food is good and well presented. The nice thing in this restaurant is the wine list, good selection and interesting prices. Try to come earlier nighttime because service can be slower when the place is fully booked.

It was a modern fancy restaurant, Very popular for an elegant evening. The food is extremely interesting and delicious but you will not be satisfied if you do not like fusion cuisine. The chef visits you at every dish and tells what it is and what it is made of. The wine list is excellent. If you want to try... More

We had my birthday dinner in Monkey's West. Seeing as we're quite used to fine dining, we were at first a little apprehensive about the 'hip' place it seemed to be: we've had some experience where style seemed more important than substance. Not at Monkey's West: I can safely say it now solidly ranks in the top-3 favourite restaurants I've... More

Found this restaurant on Trip Advisor - decided to try it and was not disappointed - it is a bizzarely pleasurable experience. The food was innovative and caught the imagination, Wine was a little expensive but a superb choice on the wine list, Staff were very pleasant and attentive, in particular paying attention to a nut allergy even to the...

My daughter was working in Dusseldorf and I decided to join her, she thought it would be a good idea if we went to an upmarket restaurant. I do like to experiment, however some of the combinations were slightly off the wall. I did find it overpriced for what I received, I do understand that it is not your normal... More

Dinner in Monkey's West during a short stopover in Düsseldorf. The restaurant is modern with an interior design which in itself gives food for thought. Specially designed lamps and a fantastic mural covering an entire wall. Food ambitious and good. We choose from the two different menus offered, and especially good was the fois gras from Elsass with cherries. My... More
