"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.

Phenomenal food and exquisite service

We treated my father-in-law to dinner at Vendome for his 60th birthday. We chose to have the suggested menu, which was more than enough food. Each dish is a work of art with so many elements carefully assembled and beautifully designed. It was a once in a lifetime experience. The wait staff were... read more

What a restaurant! We choose the complete menu with the wine pairing. The food and wines were absolutely spot on. We had a very special evening.

Visited Vendome for their mid-week "Status Quo" degustation which includes matched wines for €200 per person - outstanding value for a 3 Michelin star restaurant. Highly attentive staff, great location and views of cologne from within the restaurant. Intimate dining experience. Hard to describe just how good each course was - an outstanding dining experience. Only criticism was one course... More

The cuisine, service and ambiance of this magnificent restaurant reflects its well deserved 3 stars. The tasting menu was a combination of utter genius in its creativity and utilization of wonderful fresh and flavorful ingredients. The wine list is spectacular as well offering a combination of both German wines, and a global list including some of California's best. This is... More

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 and combined it with a dinner... 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.
