I have been to Le Coq many times since moving back to Germany and have always been satisfied. My personal favorite is the Flammkuchen- unfortunately it is not available after 18:00. But also the rest of the menu is very good - beef, chicken, salad...More

Not quite living up to the hype tonight. Nobody lit the candle light. No salt and pepper supplied. Beuf slowcooked in casserole was 1/3 chewy, 1/3 fat and 1/3 delicious. Not good enough. Potato puré very nice and smooth. Ambience still very nice.

Dear Kim H, I am very sorry that you were disappointed. Actually we get for our boeuf bourgignon, which is stewed for several hours and countless liters of wine, always good reviews. Nevertheless, thank you and best regards, Kristina Riedinger Le Coq

After 30 years of tradition, the "Le Coq" Bistro & Restaurant has been under our management since the beginning of 2015. But do not worry, we do not intend to turn the traditional restaurant into something different from what it is or has always been: A cozy place to be together with delicious food and good wine.
