I booked to eat in this restaurant with my wife on our first evening in Cologne on the 12th Dec at 9.00pm We had pre-ordered the Excelsior goose as a main from the menu earlier that day as it was recommended to do so on the menu due to cooking times etc. The restaurant was quite busy when we arrived,...

My wife and I stayed at the hotel on December 12th and 13th but did not eat dinner at this restaurant. However we enjoyed two very, very good breakfasts here. The wait staff is excellent and friendly and it will gladly take your order for things like fresh cooked eggs, bacon and sausage. The buffet is complete with all sorts... More

Starting with the positive. Great ambience with very attentive service and the best part of the meal itself was the excellent bread, unfortunately this was let down by the general quality of the food. We went for the wines menu which was several courses with accompanying wines. Regrettably in the main the food was disappointing, generally under seasoned and lacking... More

Didn't eat in the restaurant as I felt uncomfortable in my jeans, but there was no problem at all to serve me in their cozy little bar. Yesterday I had tagliolini on a white truffle velouté with 5 grams of shaved white Alba truffles. Was great theater---firstly a young waiter brought a dome with 4 truffles to the bar for... More

One of the best restaurant in town - n Im saying this as a local. Adore the atmosphere, (very) profesional service/staff which some could get it as too "cold" and the awesome menu. Its not too pricey if you care about the quality.

The ambience, food and service are elegant and discreet. Homemade treats were brought out between courses and the waiters knew what we needed before we did.

The steak out of this world, don't miss the Sea Bass as well. The best desert is the home made chocolate. I bought some to take it back with me. The staff are best in class. Friendly and classy. I will definitely go there again in my next visit to Cologne.

First of all let me say that the food was innovative, well executed, and mostly delicious. For that reason I am giving it five stars, but I have had better overall experiences at other restaurants, mainly due to the service which I found to be a bit contrived (old school) and cold. For the older set this might still hold... More

Just had loup de mer with German Riesling and had outstanding experience! Fish was just great, service attentive, but not presumptuous and quite helpful. Great dinner experience. I'll come again and hope to return here with my wife.
