I was lucky enough to be invited here whilst in Cologne for business. The hospitality was intelligent and attentive. We had the 9 course surprise menu, something I had never experienced before. The fact that I didn't know what was coming next meant that I had no expectations or preconceptions, just curiosity and wonder as the little masterpieces arrived. It... More

The La Societe ranks among the few restaurant in Cologne having earned their Michelin star and this rightfully so. Very spectacular dishes prepared deliciously for the eye and tongue will not leave you doubting the quality of staff and ingredients that come together here for their interpretation of haute cuisine. What stuck out most were the starters and greetings from... More

Beautiful small place with unique character. They serve excellent food playing with modern variations of German classics. The staff is very sympathetic, playing little word games, but always within the absolutely acceptable reach. They have a great feeling how to entertain the guests. The food was very good but can be perfected still. Fish was a little to salty, the... More

A very nice place in central Cologne offering not only French but also special local treats like the Kölsche Tapas. The wine list is comprehensive and the staff very helpful - I will come back.

We had an amazing experience, very recommended place for excellent friendly service and top quality creative food. We were all vegetarians, so they made sure to adapt the five courses menu to suit our demand - flawlessly, it was fantastic! You must try the house aperitif - a nice fusion of champagne with wild herbs, delicious! Top score.

My betterhalf and I had a pretty Valentine's Dinner at this very friendly and ultra colorful place last night. We shared the tiny table, which situated just by the Plush Corner (which is overbooked since years for the Valentine's Dinner) and enjoyed the special Valentine's Day Menu. I gotta give a remark here, luckily I managed to book the table... More

La Société is a gourmet restaurant in one of Cologne's most vibrant quarters. As we were 6 people we had to choose the same gourmet menu - a fact, which is not so much my cup of tea. But I have to admit, food was excellent. Service is very polite and helpful, wines are great. Interior decoration is overloading -... More

I had heard about this restaurant but when I had the opportunity of visit was for me the most exquisite experience starting with the welcoming, attentions and the great presentation and taste of the food. I had the most romantic dinner to celebrate our 15th anniversary.

Really by accident we landed in one of the best restaurants ever. High standard kitchen,from the surprise menu everything was wonderful. The wine, both open and bottle were best quality. The service was perfect, personal and discrete. Best diner ever!
