“Not so subito...”
Reviewed 22 December 2012

We were looking for somewhere to eat in Cologne in the evening, having failed to get a seat in the brauhaus we had been recommended, and came across Delix by accident. It was not an altogether unhappy one. The menu was very international – tapas, curry, risotto, goulash, steak frites etc – so something to appeal to all tastes, and in our experience the food was good. The wine selection was extensive and looked well-chosen, though we stuck to kolsch beer to give our meal at least one local flavour.

In keeping with the international flavour our waiter was from Calabria, Italy, and he thought Cologne was the finest city in Germany. He was charming and our meal was surreally and liberally peppered with prego, grazie, and subito. Sadly, subito was a turn of phrase and not a description of the service – we ended up cancelling our dessert after a long wait. This was surely not the fault of our sunny Italian, but on this night, which wasn’t excessively busy, the kitchen didn’t seem able to keep up. Maybe we were just unlucky.

“Great wines, good food, great service”
Reviewed 10 January 2012

We visited this restaurant/bar twice on our 4 day visit to Cologne. The first time was mid afternoon and the place was empty apart from a couple of other people. We sampled about half a dozen wines both local and from other european countries. All the wines tasted great, the people were lovely and you can buy wines to takea way. They had an unusual selection of wines which was good to see. In the UK I find it really hard to buy Majorcan wine, they had 2 types here. The Spanish Sauvignon Blanc was particularly delicious.

We were so impressed we booked a table for New Year's Eve. We arrived the place was full, they had a selection of starters, buffet style including smoked salmon, thai beef, salami & italian meats, olives, fish salad, pate and some other dishes. Mains were a choice of beef or salmon - both delicious and well presented and desserts were creme catalana with berries or Chocolate tart. again delicious. All for the price of 39euros 50 per person.

When I revisit Cologne, this place will be on my list to revisit again and probably more than once. Loved it!.

“Good food, nice price”
Reviewed 22 November 2011

Varied menu also available in English, with some nice wines. The food was good, not expensive and the service was excellent. If you don't mind basic wooden tables and seating, it's certainly worth a visit
