The visit to Schote was something I had been wanting to do for years. The start was strong, though possibly a bit too strong: Within about 45 minutes we had 3 courses (and 3 different glasses of wine/champagne) and felt pretty rushed - each time the new wine came, we quickly downed the rest from the last wine. Things then... More

Great gourmet food and wine, excellent service, not too formal - but expect to spend 3 hours and up. At gourmet level, this is fair pricing. Difficult parking situation.

Tucked away in the Southern part of the City centre is where you can find the cooking of Nelson Muller. There are three menu options including a vegetarian gastronomic menu with four or five courses. We opted for the five course "culture" menu which consisted of five perfect dishes, the workmanship required to construct these is amazing and flavours and... More

I have been told that this restaurant is among the best in Germany. Therefore, I had great expectations for the tempting menu. The food was good, but nothing exceptional for the price. Great wines, selection matched all dishes very well. Service way to slow and not very friendly. And criticism is clearly not wanted. You expect at least an apology... More

Nelson Mueller is celebrated chef who often appears on German television cooking shows, and his five-course Christmas/New Year menu did not disappoint, especially given that there was a matching vegetarian option. We reserved three months in advance, and our table was ready and waiting. The sommelier did not pay us much attention, and the service was not as perfect as... More

Went with 4 people to "Die Schote" in Essen Rüttenscheid. Very small place place (indoor around 15 tables only) with only two menus to choose from. Top chef cuisine with a large collection of top wines to accomodate the food. Friendly staff, chef comes around to welcome every guest. One small warning: very pricy! We stayed around 5 hours eating... More
