Was surprised to have been able to secure a reservation for dinner on a Thursday evening. A beautiful evening, the restaurant is located in a stand alone building in the grounds of the hotel and offers a picturesque view of Cologne. Staff are polite, friendly, professional. We opted for the 5 course tasting menu with accompanying wine which represented excellent value at €215 per person. I read an earlier review that thought the wines served with this menu were below parr but I would have to disagree. Ok, they were a bit off the beaten track but were all delicious and rather generous portions. Of course, you also get an amuse bouche, delicious bread and salted butter, coffee and petit fours so you certainly get great value for your money. What was lovely about the establishment was the relaxed ambience amongst the other patrons and staff. No pretentiousness, you definitely felt that people were there to enjoy great food and not there to be seen. The total bill came to €480 which included 2 bottles of sparkling water and 2 delicious glasses if German Sekt. Would definitely return if ever I find myself in Cologne again in the future.
