It was an excellent fine dining experience. Make sure to leave time, as it was about 3 hours all total. We did the largest tasting menu, with the wine Pairing. Well worth it. Service extremely knowledgeable, nice surroundings, the food was near perfect. Excellent. Would visit Germany again just to dine here.

World-class food served by a friendly and professional service brigade. Expensive (within Germany, even by 3 star standards) but worth the money as Joachim Wissler is a chef at the top of his game.

I've never been to a restaurant with such a horrible service. I and my wife were very bad treated. Food is nice, but it is not worth the bad service they provide. They do not know how to deal with international credit cards, so they tried 5 different cards of ours, they were insinuating we could not pay (our cards... More

Had the most fantastic, dazzling, refined, unforgetable birthday dinner ever!!! The 20 Course Menu (we devoured the large culinary journey) were sooooo mouth-watering I need to stay away of gazing each picture I made during the dinner. Oh well, the Master and Maestro himself went to our table too! What a loving and down-to-earth gesture from such a 'big' man!... More

Excellent food and techniques. Very good service. Not to present, not to invisible. Very interested in their guests as well. Good welcome with the owner at the front desk

We have been here couple of times and will still provide our compliments. A very nice michelin star restaurant with high quality food from the inside out. Both taste and presentation are excellent. Food presented like a piece of art. The team is very professional, outstanding beyond ordinary. Ambience and interior are cosy, tasteful and excellent. Strongly recommended.

This restaurant is very special. It is a three michelin star restaurant. BUT the atmoshere is relaxed. The service is great. AND then the food. It is creative and very well prepared. This chef can cook. All the plates are well designed. It costs a lot but this is an event of a lifetime (regretfully). We had a dinner with... More

You will never forget this experience. It is top on all aspects. The calm from one side, allows you to eat while you feel in your room and the attention the services gives you makes you just feel happy

It's hard to capture in words what eating at Vendome is like. The restaurant is at this gorgeous hotel that is in a former castle and is tucked away on a hill just about 20 min outside cologne. When we arrived, we were actually greeted by Chef Wissler, which was such a treat. And the night got better from there.... More

For most people, Germany isn't considered a go-to place for gastronomy - well think again and visit Restaurant Vendome. If you love food which is creatively conceived but also delivers amazing flavours this place ticks all the boxes. You are encouraged to have the 5 course tasting menu (although a la carte is available) which at 190 euros a head... More

Description
"German gastronauts are well aquainted with the interior of Vendôme, the famously 3-Michelin-starred restaurant located inside the Grand Hotel Schloss Bensberg in Cologne. The restaurant itself look like a rather well kept Prada store, understated and chic with splashings of sage green and discreet ruby red, and the glossy gourmet crowd are enamoured with the acclaimed menu created by super-chef Joachim Wissler. Star dishes include the calf's head in a parsley-horseradish vinaigrette wild celery and aioli of capers; the grilled saddle of lamb from Müritz with green olives in lamb tea and ricotta gnocchi; and the Manjari chocolate fondant with frozen blackberry foam. Vendôme boasts a 900+ wine list.
