Description: "German gastronauts are well aquainted with the interior of Vendôme, the famously 3-Michelin-starred restaurant located inside the Grand Hotel Schloss Bensberg in Cologne. The restaurant itself look like a rather well kept Prada store, understated and chic with splashings of sage green and discreet ruby red, and the glossy gourmet crowd are enamoured with the acclaimed menu created by super-chef Joachim Wissler. Star dishes include the calf's head in a parsley-horseradish vinaigrette wild celery and aioli of capers; the grilled saddle of lamb from Müritz with green olives in lamb tea and ricotta gnocchi; and the Manjari chocolate fondant with frozen blackberry foam. Vendôme boasts a 900+ wine list. "

I read a number of reviews and asked around. It is clear that such a rated and nominated restaurant has a right to impose some rules. But I would never expect the arrogance we experienced. The family planned to gather in the morning, in the Frankfurt airport with my sons flying in from other countries , and celebrate 2 birthday... More

This is a restaurant in absolute worldclass, both when it' comes to the royal surroundings (based in the Old Manor House of Schloss Bensberg), the attentive waiters and of course the fabulous food, that you can expect at a 3 star Michelin restaurant. Chef de Cuisine Joachim Wisser designes dishes with surprising taste combinations like truffles and lemon, crayfish and... More

We did experience many great fine dinning or gourmet restaurants but Joachim Wissler does reach the Top Level. Creative and innovative he does make not a revolution but creates a own level of culinary experience. A must for everyone which consider himself being open for a new world of dinning. We are and have been amazed from the recommend menu... More

The gourmet restaurant Vendôme housed at the Grandhotel Schloss Bensberg, near Cologne, is now ranked #10 in the "San Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants" list.

Since we can write freely on this site I just want to say that the Sunday lazy arrangement of the schloss bensberg Hotel is in some way a bit of paradise : gourmet restaurant vendome is no doubt one of the best in Europe..........every dish is a explosion of flavours that, unsually, stay longer in mouth than in other restaurants....

The tasting menu is really an experience. Every dish is an artwork! Wine pairing is not so good. Expensive and not wow!!! Better take wine by the bottle

A lovely menu, beautifully presented. Service was not stiff, as you would expect in a 3 Michelene Star restaurant. Nice chats, they were genuinly interested. The presentation, the taste, everything was just perfect. It was not cheap but definitely worth it.
