"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.

One of the best dinners I ever had.

We visited the Vendome at Schloss Bensberg for the second time, after an amazing experience 6 years ago when we spontaneously came for a Sunday lunch. This time, one day after boxing day, en route from a family event in the south of Germany to England, we had planned the stay at Schloss Bensberg... read more

We love exploring new and unique flavors and Joachim Wissler, chef of the 3 star Michelin restaurant 'Vendome" in Bergisch Gladbach (near Cologne) does not disappoint. Vendome is part of the "Grandhotel Schloss (castle) Bensberg" - amazing surroundings for new flavors and fresh ingredients. It's a short drive from Cologne and worth every mile - we'll back back for more!

Exceptional cuisine, brilliantly delivered and explained. The wine flight was interesting and mostly local. The private dinning room is good for business dinners.

Although my husband and myself regularly visit restaurants with Michelin stars, this was by far one of the best restaurant we have ever been. Usually restaurants with 3-Michelin-stars always serve good food (that's why they are rewarded that high), but Joachim Wissler is not just a chef, but an artist. The food is amazing and serving of each plate is... More

This is a great restaurant with great food and absolutely worth visiting. I have eaten here a couple times while being a guest at the hotel. The food was always very good and creative and I personally like the decor and ambience of the restaurant. Why only the average rating? I am comparing it with other 3 Michelin star restaurants...

As a part of my birthday celebration, husband and I went to stay at Grandhotel Schloss Bensberg, which was better than our expectation! The trip concluded with a lunch at the world's famous 3 Michelin starred Restaurant Vendome, which is a prominent feature in world's 50 best restaurants.

I recently visited this amazing restaurant with my wife & was totally satisfied with every second of time spent here. We enjoyed a "short" degustation over dinner (too many to count maybe 14+?) with the wine pairing to match. Let me just say now don't come to a place like this if you want a quick meal & be prepared... More

My Husband and I travelled to Germany for my birthday for lunch, specifically to visit the famous 3 michelin star restaurant Vendome. We both had the tasting menu for lunch. Whilst every dish was beautifully presented (and in some cases quite magical), we were disappointed by the actual taste combinations for the starters and main courses. If I hadn't taken... More

The moment we stepped in we were greeted with friendly waiters and that continued throughout the evening - impeccable service. Very beautifully presented food which was as artistic as tasty and I love how this place was unpretentious and warm with a bit of fun on the menu. Worth every cent! Do yourself a favour and go there, put it... More

This 3 Michelin star restaurant deserves every. star. Joachim Wissler belongs without any doubt to the top in Germany. It is quite impossible to find any criticism. The quality, presentation and service are impeccable. Really worth the journey. Of course you need to spend some money, but it is worth it to the last penny. Take care if you go... More
