We had a wonderful, tasteful and memorable dinner at this cozy restaurant. I loved the Chef's use of eastern spices in his creations: Saffron, Orange Blossom and Rose water. The results were naughty, complex and very delicious. I am a vegetarian and the dishes they served me were all very tasty. We also had a bottle of very fine Rose... More

Food and service were marvelous. Very inventive use of flavors. Only complaint was pace of meal... 4 hours was too long. Meal was our favorite and most interesting during this trip to Europe...spent 4 days in London and Paris.

We had a great time there, the food is impressive and really modern. Every dish is a surprise!! We choose to have each dish with the respective wine, it was nice but if you want to spend less, you can just order a bottle of wine.

I choosed this restaurant together with my boyfriend to celebrate his first time in Germany - country that I love. I wanted something fresh and refined, with a hint of traditional flavors but yet under a new and creative form. This place fitted perfectly all my expectations; we had a lovely dinner here, with super interesting dishes and mixed flavors,... More

Food is amazing and presented in a creative and modern way. The dynamic young team offers New German Seasonal Cuisine at its best. Great atmosphere, excellent wines, helpful and very friendly staff. Booking in advance is recommended as the restaurant is rather small.

We visited for my birthday on a Friday evening. The hosts were professional, knowledgeable and helpful but also down to earth and approachable. The food was original and the menu very well put together, the beef dish in particular was outstanding. The menu is good value for money and the wine parings were excellent. Highly recommended.

Last year, I forgot my husband's birthday. Usually there is a good excuse for this kind of things but his birthday was on the 1st of January.. Somehow between the holiday stress I forgot.. But since I have learnt my lesson well that men are as sensitive as women when it comes to this oversight..I invited my dearest to show... More

This was our first visit to Ox & Klee but definitely won't be our last. This is not a big restaurant so you'll want to make a reservation and the food is a little more expensive but is so well worth it! My husband and I decided to do the 5 course Überraschungsmenü, you can do anywhere from 4 -... More

Our Tasting Menu is a Carte Blanche. The concept is to surprise our guests. We only need information about what you do not want to eat or intolerate. If you wish, we accompany your menu with matching wines! As a guest you are in direct contact with the kitchen staff led by Daniel Gottschlich, because the cooks bring the dishes to the table. In addition to the Tasting Menu we offer cheese á la carte from Maître Affineur Waltmann from Erlangen.
