We had a dinner for my husbands birthday. The restaurant is located in the last floor of an old water tower which is today a 5 star hotel. The views over Cologne are unbelievable...the restaurant itself misses in creativity, the food was good but not great, which makes then the price too high ( value for money).

Worldwide one of the most extraordinary setting in an old Chateau d'Eau in walking distance from the town hall/center. A super feature: the roof restaurant where the guests may walk outside in the fresh air to enjoy 360° sight of Cologne, a glass of Champaign in the hand thinking how beautiful the city must have been before the war. AND... More

Also goes under the name of Himmel un Ad. The views from the restaurant are spectacular, we only wished for better weather when we visited. We had the 6 course tasting menu which by the time we finished was more like 10. The food was amazing, everything you would expect, the service was also perfect. The presentation of each dish...

I can definitely recommend this place if you like the combination of panoramic view and fine dining. If the weather is nice you can even sit outside or maybe just for drinks before/after dinner? The service could have been better and friendlier but all in all I can definitely recommend it.

it was good quality for a good price. Service was good but you missed the personal touch. We had lunch outside which was pleasant.

I had a great time here with 3 colleagues. The views were amazing in this converted water tower in Alt Stadt.

This place is close to the city centre but is a real oasis for relaxing over a leisurely meal or impressing your business colleagues. Sitting in the garden on a summer's evening is delightful - so quiet, so peaceful and so enjoyable! Service is understated, but always attentive and helpful. The menu includes a number of local delicacies and other... More

We hired the private dining room for a small company event and it turned out to be a perfect choice. The location is stunning, with stylish interior and a roof terrace with an amazing view. The weather was playing along so while we had the main courses inside, staff were happy to serve dessert outside on the terrace. The restaurant... More

Had lunch here with a client and enjoyed it. We needed somewhere quiet to talk & while the restaurant was busy we were able to converse well and discuss what was needed. Service was discreet. We both had the steak main course followed by fruit dessert, no alcohol. Would recommend, good value also.

Thank Adrianhands
