“Fantastic pearl in Cologne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2012

Even though it gets loud in the charming little brasserie it is one of Colognes pearls. I love the restaurant the food and the very personal service. A place to go for every little celebration in life.

“A real gem of a restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

If the outcomes of all French/German ventures were like this, the British would be begging to remain in the EU! Not a cheap restaurant, but, if you're looking for a great selection of dishes, all presented in an innovative way, and from a kitchen which is clearly talented, then this is one not to miss. Front of house is organised beautifully by the French owners, and I recommend Le Moissonier to anyone looking for a totally satisfying experience.

“A truly great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2011

Le Moissonnier is a hidden gem. French Brasserie and the French owners Vincent and Liliane make you feel at home. Staff is friendly and professional. But the true gem is the innovative, creative and so delicious food. Do not forget to save some room for their great cheese platter. Le Moissonnier, a truly gourmet experience. Cannot wait to come back next year.

“Superb, inventive gastronomic delight, but be prepared to pay for it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2011

Everything we had was an explosion of wonderful flavors. The wine was also superb. This isn't the traditional French cooking. Everything was unique without being odd or trendy. It all came together beautifully. The portions are small and the prices high (our seafood appetizer was $40 Euros) so expect to pay for the quality rather than the quantity. Really a special occasion restaurant unless you are Warren Buffet. An amazing, unique gastronimic delight, though.

“Absolutely Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2011

We dined here on a busy Saturday evening and had the set menu which had 5 or 6 courses. The food was amazing and so were the staff. The dishes were quite complex and were very well presented with a good explanation of the components and construction. We asked for a change to the menu which was no problem. The cheese board if the best I have ever seen. I would definitely go out of my way to eat at this restaurant again.
