This was one of my two favorite restaurants in Cologne. The duck was absolutely amazing and the service was excellent. Despite being a "fine dining" type of place, it was not stuffy at all and had a laid back feel. They do offer a fix priex menu but also have a la carte options with entrees in the 40 euro range which I went with.

My kirei invited me to Le Moissonnier after having discovered a relative cheap way to experience a 2 stars Michelin restaurant. At lunch (except Saturdays), you can order a plat du jour and a glass of wine for 23 euros each. The bill won't probably be 46 euros, because even if you say - no, thanks - to a starting aperitif, with a bottle of 7 euros Evian water and the irresistible temptation of ordering a dessert when they bring you the dessert list (around 15-16 euros each), the final bill could be maybe 85 euros.
The plat du jour of our visit comprised a delicate salad with a bowl of row fish in a good sauce, and a delicious roast with an appetizing potato cake. The à la carte dessert will actually be the most lasting memory: a truly delicious chocolate and hazelnuts cake, but accompanied by a glass of cheesecake in a ginger cream which was conversely not so convincing, a bit too sour. The final orange lollipops looked nice gifts but actually a bit meaningless, out of context.
The decor and the atmosphere are definitely charming, we were certainly very glad of our first 2 stars Michelin (lighter and easier) experience.

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.

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!
