I recently had lunch there with my wife and 8 year old following a visit to the cathedral. We were definitely underdressed for the occasion as this is a fine dining establishment. Nevertheless, the staff welcomed us and provided us with excellent food and service. Their wine list is extensive, including a strong selection of local riesling, and the food... More

I have family in Köln and look forward to each visit. This place is a must every time I'm in town. Fine dining is an understatement! Every time I dine here it is a unique and fantastic experience. Refined, fresh, and never stuffy, I look forward to the culinary experience in it's elegant surroundings as well as the superb service.... More

All excellent, Cheese and only Artisan. Best meal on my 5 night trip and not the most expensive. A drink in the bar is a must. All wood panelled, just... More

Dining with friends. Some ordered steaks some ordered fish. Steaks are good, fish is good but the risotto under the fish is not so good. Service is very friendly and moderately efficient. Dessert turns out to be the best dish which is somewhat disappointing.

We had a meal at Hanse Stube with friends whilst staying at the Excelsior Ernst. The food was on the whole ok but nothing special. A real low point was the turbot which came perched on top of what only can be described as a huge pile of dry sticky salty risotto. It was quite unpleasant. When it came time... More

Revisited last week. One disappointing dish, Dover Sole, and service not good on first night. Second night excellent food and service. Well worth the 1100 mile return trip drive.

Great booking service -- I booked Hanse Stube by calling in as I didn't see any tables available on the night and time i want. It went smooth. Great concierge service -- Because I wanted to give some flowers to my girl friend as a surprise, I asked how should I do it. It immediately referred me to the Concierge... More

Don't usually dine in the hotel we stop in but there are two superb restaurants here and we are glad we did! We had an aperitif whilst waiting for food - Hendricks G&T for me that must have been a double! We both chose a lobster and butternut starter dish and I went for the goose cooked in the traditional... More

From the moment we arrived we were treated like we were regular visitors to this restaurant a lovely warm welcome. The restaurant has a lovely ambuaince about it. The waiters very informative about the menus. The food was mouthwatering and the recommendations of the wines excellent. A tad expensive but worth it. Definitely get a return visit
