“Lovely dinner and ambience ”
Reviewed December 7, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I were in Cologne for the weekend and wanted to find a nice restaurant for our last night we found this place on Trip Advisor and booked the day before and they only had 6pm slot available which was fine. When we arrived it is a lovely little Restuarant withan open kitchen for you to watch. Initially I was surprised as to how expensive it was so we opted for the "surprise 4 course dinner" at 55 euro's each it was delicious. A nice end to the holiday

“Fantastic meal!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

I recently went to Cologne for a conference and had a week to explore the different restaurants. This restaurant has to be one of the very best in the city. The fish was absolutely delicious and the environment was very cozy. Make a reservation here - you really won't regret it!

“Fancy in a good way”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

if you are looking for something fancy with good food yet unpretentious this is the place. Food really high quality and a long list of white wines - a fish restaurant in the end. Walked into the restaurant late in the evening without reservation and managed to get a good table though the place was still busy. All chocoholics should keep room for the chocolate desert! Service was very proper with very good English.

“wonderful dining experience and lovely end to our Cologne Holiday!”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Our last evening in Cologne was by far the best thanks to the chef and staff at Poissou.
We started our evening with a recommended bottle of Gosset Rose Champagne which did not disappoint! We both chose the chef tasting 3 course meal which was amazing. The first course was probably one of the best mushrooms soups I have ever eaten, followed by a perfectly prepared atlantic cod and last but not least the perfect dessert of lemon creme brulee.
Could not have asked for a more perfect meal, great service and a nice cozy feeling space with open kitchen to watch the chef and his assistants hard at work!
