“Inventive and perfect”
Reviewed 23 March 2013

A standard in the culinarian scene of Cologne since almost 30 years the Moissonniers have developed this place in a sinister quarter of the city from a charming French bistro into a gourmet temple with two Micherlin stars, but still retain the relaxed atmosphere of the former days. Their philosphy seems to be, that great food and wine can be easily enjoyed -- not even a hint of the stuck-up attitude at places with comparable quality in cuisine.
Of course Moissonnier celebrates the tiny-bit style of contemporary cuisine with surprising combinations of Food and detailed assortments on countless plates. Nevertheless everything comes carefully prepared at the right time with the right temperature. Perfection is the name for it.

“Little Paris in Cologne”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

a stay at "Le Moissonnier" is like being in Paris. Mrs. and Mr. Moissonnier celebrate their 2 michelin stars and you will be part of it. It is an authentic place with excellent food in a wonderful ambiente!

“Lady Luck Smiles On Us...Last Minute Opening Results In Wonderful Experience!”
Reviewed 2 September 2012

We got lucky and enjoyed a table at Le Moissonnier, a two-star Michelin for dinner.

Started with Oysters (Fine de Claire, Maldon and Amoricaine), Foie Gras terrine and Icelandic Langoustines. Then it was on to Ris de veau and Breton John Dory.

Guess we showed our delight cause we were honored by the unexpected visit of Chef Eric Menchon. Vincent himself waited on us all night.

The desserts included Clafoutis abricot-orange and orange mousse on cinnamon bisquit.

The wines with each course were fabulous as was the atmosphere of this restaurant situated in a Soho like neighborhood of Koln. We entertained the staff and patrons as much as we enjoyed the service and efforts of the able staff!

The restaurant is underrated!

“Fantastic pearl in Cologne”
Reviewed 21 March 2012

Even though it gets loud in the charming little brasserie it is one of Colognes pearls. I love the restaurant the food and the very personal service. A place to go for every little celebration in life.
