"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

I was glad to find that a restaurant with 3 Michelin stars accepted a last minute reservation (although it might have been a fluke) the place is very beautiful, a very elegant interior located in a regal château-like hotel. The service is incredible and the...More

I booked this by adjusting my hotel dates to suit. If you are travelling in late July or August take advantage of the discounted rooms at the eponymous hotel. The restaurant is a nice open room with well spaced tables. The restaurant was already full...More

Food, service and atmosphere perfect of course. This is a great restaurant that must be tried at least once. Nevertheless, 3 points should be corrected: 1) As long as a deposit of 150€ per person is reasonable to secure the reservation, asking credit card number...More

What do you expect when you book a table in one of Germany's best restaurants situated in a castle? Impeccable food (check!), impeccable service (check!), very nice surroundings (check!) and a lack of humor and surprises (check!). There is really not too much to add....More

It is definitely an experience of the senses especially the taste. You need to start early to enjoy a delightful dinner - minimum 4 courses, but do not forget you will also have the " greetings from the kitchen" Keep in mind you are at...More

Don’t get me wrong, this place is a sturdy 3*. Fantastic venue, front of house were absolute perfection. The food was a feast for the eyes, the detail and sheer amount was so impressive. HOWEVER, flavourwise, nothing on the £220 menu blew me away. You...More

Vendome was the best, no wonder they have Michelin 3 Stars. Our friend booked the private room downstairs for his birthday. Food was amazing and beautiful, service was great. The best way to celebrate.
