I dine at Hanse Stube twice in August 2013 as I was testing it out for a family dinner in December. I had the set menu the first time and it was excellent and well priced for a Michelin star restaurant. The second time I ordered a la carte and again it was excellent. The service is excellent without being... More

Did not turn out to be top notch as other times as Menu was not perfectly chosen. Starters were ok, Desert was outstanding, main course was ok. Place is incredible, service cannot get better.

I stayed at the Excelsior hotel and the breakfast is provided by this restaurant. Good food and excellent services. Beware of the Chinese dim sum, some pork ingredient has not been fully cooked. In fact, it is half fresh meet........carefully!

This lovely restaurant reminds of those great old establishments in great Vienna, were you can find the three most important ingredients for a great meal: Excellent regional and traditional food prepared in first class standards (redundant novel cuisine sophistications – OUT!), professional and kind service, elegant and warm designed venue. This lovely restaurant, surprisingly the only restaurant in Cologne that... More

We stayed at the Excelsior hotel and dined out at the Hans Stube one evening. Price was around 250 Euros but we ordered the "wine after every course" selection so you could eat for much less. It truly was a meal to remember and was without a doubt the best meal we had in our three weels in Germany. I... More

While the Excelsior Hotel rooms are worn and tired, the in-house Hanse-Stube restaurant is young, nouveau and refreshing. The menu offers an unpretentious but yummy selection carefully prepared in palatable portions. The service friendly and the outdoor courtyard very cozy. They have a great wine list offered by the glass. All in all, a very good experience.

It was difficult to chose from the many local dishes offered on their card, equally demanding was to chose from the large wine list a suitable bottle. Just gorgeous.

We had a beautiful meal in Hanse Stube. First-class formal service with excellent cuisine, we p[articularly enjoyed the desserts. Quite pricey, but I would highly recommend for a special occasion.
