“awful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013

Probably the worst meal I have been presented with in a very long time. The staff are charming and do their job, they just don't have the raw materials to cook with.
We were on a Spa package, which included a three course meal in the restaurant.
Starters are a selection of cold pizza toppings, and for the main course there is a choice of pizza or pasta, both made using the starters. No gluten free choices available on this deal, although I believe there are other things on the menu. Desserts were tasteless just defrosted mass-produced yuk.
Is there a plus side? hardly, but we were able to negotiate a second one litre bottle of San Pellegrino (almost 9 euro on the menu) instead of a bottle of wine. I can't help thinking that we scored here, as a cheap bottle of plonk would cost them next to nothing whereas there would be less of a mark-up on the SP.

“More German than Italian”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

Should become more Italian... Set up is more like a snack bar than a high end restaurant. Minestrone although interpreted in a german way was good, pasta was average.

“Try their paparazzi pizza!”

If you ever stay in Radisson Blu Cologne, try the paparazzi pizza! It is surprisingly tasty, with grana pagana cheese and lots of flavor !

Fairly good overall choice, staff attentive but hovered a little too much felt like she was waiting for me to take my last mouthful before she took my plate!
