We wanted to have a nice dinner for a special occasion with my parents in law. The service was really friendly and attentively. We had the five course dinner with wine pairing. We were able to change any course out that we did not like. So we all enjoyed our food a lot. Every course had a special and really... More

It is pretty telling when the only critique I can make was with the amuse bouche,which was certainly acceptable, just not spectacular like the rest of the dining experience. Those people who do the judging to bestow a Michelin star to a talented chef in a beautiful establishment do tend to have some lofty standards, and they are surpassed at... More

Been about 6 times and it never fails to please. Group of 4, all had different starters and main meals. Completely clean plates. I had the lamb and it was perfectly cooked for me, the Consomme is one I have every time, intense flavour. The cheese selection was artisan and I had my 3 favourites, Fourme D'ambert, Epoisse and Fougerous.... More

Loved the fact that we were ushered in professionally even though we didn't look the part as we had been shopping and came tramping in off the street. It is a fine dining restaurant and we had an excellent sommelier that explained the wines to us before every course. We have a lot of fine dining experience and this was... More

Ate here pre-Christmas - had the 'goose' meal for two. Was a little dubious about the place on the basis of 'patchy' TA reviews recently, and the fact that the management failed to respond to my e-mail (in German) asking them to confirm my reservation made some weeks before - maybe an unreasonable ask for a small provincial restaurant -...

We walked into the Excelsior Hotel Ernst but couldn't find the entrance to the restaurant. A helpful hotel concierge pointed us to a corner in the lobby. Past the bar, there was a long hallway of paintings. At the end was the entrance to the restaurant that was not obvious. Once inside we were greeted warmly and seated in a... More

We enjoyed an excellent dinner at the Hans Stube. The menu is somewhat limited (a very good thing), the dishes innovative and delicious, very good wine list, and the service first class. Definitely worth making a reservation at this excellent restaurant (perhaps for a special occasion) while in Koln.
