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. "

We had the set menu for lunch on Sunday. Every dish was a work of art with fabulous flavour combinations and superb service. No surprises that it has won so many awards. Book ahead.

I strongly suggest you try Vendome restaurant. Awesome tastes and the combination and alternation between the tastes were so balanced. It really does worth the 3 Michelin stars!

Beyond Words. You must book well in advance, it is easier on the internet. I tasted in on a summer Sunday night, They started with appetizers of flowers, leaves and grass. Amazing. Book a table n try for your self. Wine list was long, Thicker than a phone book, And I just enjoyed going through it.

Great ambiance, excellent food and wines. Slow service because they did not have enough staff and we were a party of 15, all booked in advance. Not up to 3 stars

Having dinner in Vendome is a wonderful experience from start till end. The interior is calm but luxurious. The staff is very attentive but discrete. The food is fantastic, starting with a whole range of appetizers. Luckily we only had the 6 course menu as 8 course would have been too much. This is a great dining experience. Some smaller... More

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
