I've had twice the pleasure of enjoying excellent food, romantic atmosphere and the fantastic service at the Fachwerkhaus in Bensberg. Once in summer and once it winter you can't really go wrong for either a special occasion or a casual family event with this place. It's a true gem, so cozy and pretty, sneaked into a tiny traditional German "Fachwerkhaus"(frame house) with little details all over.
Once you get in you're greeted by the super friendly and charming staff and they take you to either their gorgeous outdoor seating area where you can smell the lavender bushes or to one of their white-linen table cloth indoor tables. Recommendation: If weather permits, sit outside, otherwise get a table upstairs for the extra romantic atmosphere.
Besides the wonderful setting, the true outstanding experience is the food! They've recently refreshed their menu and added some more very creative new things, everything I've tasted was exceptional!
What I really liked about being there is that the staff just know their job, I've literally been there once and couldn't decide because everything on the menu sounded delicious and asked them to just put a 3 course menu of their favorite choices together and add some matching wine. What can I say, it was really one of my Top 3 culinary experiences I've had in my life!
- Try the local "Himmel und Aaeed" (foie gras with blood sausage) - awesome combinations of taste and texture
- The "Ochsenbaeckchen" are just delicious, super smooth and aromatic in taste
- Ask their staff about their current wines, they work with great German wineries
You can also book the entire place for a wedding or birthday and get a really custom experience! Anyway, if you're anywhere close - get there! ;-)
