Visited on trip to cologne and had 4 course tasting menu with matching wine, all dishes were very good, char as starter was okay but not exceptional, risotto was excellent but the braised venison was best dish. Chocolate pudding was of a high standard. Wine matching was very good with the German Chardonnay excellent. Service was very good, Probably merits... More

We went to Wein am Rhein based on the fact that it's in the Michelin guide. Add to that the good TripAdvisor reviews, and we were sold. We took the 5-course menu, but it was disappointing overall. Some of the dishes were great (the salmon), but it was mind-boggling why some were even on the menu to begin with. The... More

I visited WeinamRhein on business whilst in Cologne last week. We started with a meat board, olives and a recommended German Riesling (Schlossböckelheimer 2012). The pairing was perfect to start with and the price for a glass was more than reasonable considering the quality. This also beautifully matched my fish starter. After moving-on to the lamb, I was recommended a... More

Visited this week and waited over one hour after ordering to the food arriving. Menu very limited in choice and portions small with food of average quality

You have 100+ five star reviews, so I hate to be negative. This restaurant does a lot of experimentation, which I usually enjoy. First course with very small bites of salmon was OK. 2nd course "fish and chips" really was bad. Didn't taste great. Waiter never asked for our feedback. Third course, lamb, had a great taste and brilliant sauce.... More

Dear Reader, you should know that since the Wein am Rhein opened it's doors, it is my very, very favorite place. Exquisite cooking: surprising, inspiring and soooo delicious. Perfect service: high-end and at the same time pleasantly laid back, it is obvious they all love what they are doing and are happy, when their guests deeply enjoy the experience. I... More

Business modern restaurant close to main railway station. Set lunch was a tasteful soup and tasteful stew. Both already prepared in advance and quickly on the table. Stands out above the "standard touristic german" restaurants.

Found this with the help of Google maps. It was a wonderful surprise. The decor of tapestries and paper lanterns was delightful. The food was absolutely delicious and the wine pairings were perfect. This is not an inexpensive restaurant but the food was definitely worth the price. The staff was friendly and attentive. They know their food and their wines.

I liked the atmosphere, although I was surprised by some of the visitors (lots of kids and people on flip-flops at a fine dining place). I'm not a die hard vegetarian but don't like to eat meat too much, and the options were limited. I opted for an asparagus risotto which was lovely albeit slightly undercooked. The wine was awesome!... More
