“The perfect restaurant! Must visit in cologne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2014

I like restaurants that not only serve great food but also have a great view/ambience. Usually you have to pick one of these two. And if you find a restaurant which has both it would be exorbitantly priced. But Limani is the perfect combination of all the 3 things. Brilliant food with a great Riverside view and reasonably priced! Service is great too. My favourite restaurant in cologne. Lovely for lunch and dinner. They have heaters on the terrace so even in winter you can enjoy the great view. Lot of options for vegetarians too

“Amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2014

This was my first real meal in Cologne and, even though not tipically german, delicious food. The restaurant seems to operate in a system of greek tapas. First the cold ones and salads, and then then hot plates. One of them is similar to coquilles st jacques and definitely worth to come back. The service also deserves compliments, really friendly and efficient.

“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2014

Been here several times and it's consistently delicious and with very attentive service. The terrace is fantastic, cosy and with an excellent view. It doesn't get better than this for a summer dinner with friends, family or just as a couple.

“Outstanding food service and outlook”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

We walked for ever down the Rhine away from the tourist crush and wondered if it would be worthwhile. We should not have worried, Limani is sited high above the Rhine with outside, were we were lucky to be seated, and inside seating. A great starter of sardines hot from the grill followed by a large good value fig and rocket salad, lamb cutlets, capped of with a unique Greek yogurt-based sweet accompanied by an unusual but great Greek red made for a memorable meal.

“Excellent ambience and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

Right on the Rhine with indoor and outdoor seating options. Gr8 buzz inside as well. Dishes are tapas style with a few mains. Tapas are 5-8 € each. Wine 4€ for 0.1L glass.

The service was good (English speaking). We got the aubergine dip and beetroot salad in colds and baked cheese and lamb in the hot dishes. Dessert was choc mousse and was excellent. Is go back with some time on hand (and by tram) to allow for a longer stay with more wine and to soak in the river side views.
