Very expensive, even for a so-called two star. Somewhat tired decor. Chipped porcelain (cloches). Small portions - expected. Wine cork broken. Tried to help waiter with translation (the menu is in French and English, not German) he would not accept my assistance. Waiters disagreeing with each other on performance of duties. Not a well choreographed display. Food over seasoned (for... More

Is Michelin 2 Star. It starts with very good service, I can't say "excellent" because not everyone in the restaurant is equally skilled in services. The dinner is mostly set. 8 course or 5. It is a lot to eat. It is French-Japanese fusion. French style of service, with lots of Japanese inspiration for taste and ingredients. The display of... More

A meal at this restaurant (or at the bistro) is an authentic life experience where amazing food is accompanied by a top-class presentation and high level service. Definitely recommended!

As part of the birthday present for my wife I choose restaurant Im-Schiffchen. I was doubting between other 2 star Michelin restaurants in a wide area, but ultimately made the decision for Im-Schiffchen. Our experience with German Michelin Star restaurants was not very good up to now, so we came with a very low expectation level. And I must say:... More

I spent the last 9 months in this region of Germany on business, and we covered a lot of the gourmet temples there in that time both for business dinners and during romantic week-ends with our respective better halves. The "Im Schiffchen" sticks out distinctly in my experience from all of the other Michelin-starred restaurants we enjoyed while in NRW.... More

We had the 7 course dinner (179 e) which was fine, we took the accompanying wines which was 299 p/pax. So this places this restaurant in a very high price bracket. Is it worth it , probably , but if you put this high price bar the expectations high. The dinner was good, but lacked the refinement that I would... More

The best Italien Restaurant i have been to for a long time. I travel around the World and coming from Milan, I recognized quality and high Standards in Service and hospitality. The baby Pork dish was cooked to perfektion and melts like butter on your tongue. well deserved Michelin star, price was good vale for the area.

Thank Jacomo D
