“Amazing restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

We got invited by a couple of friends for a nice dinner in Aachen. From the outside it looks like a very small restaurant with only a few tables. However, as we entered we were lead towards the back of the restaurant where many more tables can be found. Part of it actually looked like a winter garden. The interior was very stylish and set immediately a nice atmosphere.
Everyone of us took the three course menu. As a starter I had the classic carpaccio with lemon mayonnaise, rocket and roasted pumpkin seed. As I said, a classic but nevertheless very well done and tasty. The others had the pumpkin soup with prawn and blackened beef filet which was according to them also delicious. This was followed by a small greeting from the kitchen, octopus with a rice salad and marinated red onions, yammy.
The main course was less divers since everybody took the iberico pork with a mushroom sauce and mashed potatoes. The pork was a little it fatty, but in my opinion this only added to the good taste of meat and didn't let it go dry. After that we received another greeting from the kitchen, a pear sorbet with a nice sauce. For dessert I had a tropical strudel, filled with bananas, pineapples and mango accompanied by mango sorbet. While the strudel ok, the sorbet was to die for.
During our whole stay the waiters were very friendly, taking really good care of us, refilling our water when need.
In sum, a very pleasant stay with amazing food. Definitely a must go in Aachen.

“Great food in a lovely setting!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

We had friends visiting from the UK with whom we enjoyed a lovely evening at Tom's. Terrific food, my seabass was excellent but the beef dish my husband had sublime. There was a good selection of wines and all in a lovely setting with a good level of atmosphere. We had not been here for a little while and thought the service levels were even better than previously and at just over 230€ with 3 courses for 2, & 2 courses for 2 including cocktails for 4 of us and 2 really decent bottles of wine this was really great value! We must go more often and thank you to the team at Tom's for a most pleasant time!

“Sehr Gut”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2012

We had a lovely meal - pretty upmarket by Aachen standards with matching prices although I would say still good value. Very good cooking and a reasonable selection of wines. We will be back for sure. One of our favourite two restaurants in Aachen so far (the other being Bella Italia, just down the street).
