We celebrated my birthday at the restaurant on 10 July and we're really not satisfied with the quality of the food especially having in mind the high price we needed to pay- more than 300 EUR for 3 persons for sup, main course and deserts.

The staff was really friendly and polite and at the end they served a little cake as a compliment to me for the birthday but even this could not compensate the disappointment of the quality of the food.

Inside Excelsior Hotel after the bar with nice yard inside. There are set menus and Alacarte. 5 set menu with vine pairing was delicious also we have tuna and seabass with delicious asparagus. Service was very good and they have a wide vine list. Chocolate selection with the cafe can be the best part. Best in Cologne.

This restaurant in the hotel Excelsior is a beautiful place. We had dinner here with 14 people. The service the food, the service and the wine were just out of this world, really fantastic! What a wonderful experience. Would go back there any time!

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 good taste of really creatively chosen combinations.
All the wines were delicious too and we changed the wine for our main course for a red wine as alle of them were white. That was no problem at all.
I personally enjoyed the home made pralines in the end a lot.

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 Hanse-Stube. The oysters were wonderful, large, meaty and full of flavour, and the restaurant does not place a bottle of Tabasco on the table, how refreshing. The wagyu steak was melt in your mouth brilliant and the creme brulee was totally on point. Polished off a couple of bottles of Ornellaia between the two of us, and offered a glass to a lovely couple from Australia who were most entertaining. Coffee and grappa closed an exceptional dinner.
