The Excelsior Hotel Ernst next to Cologne Cathedral is steeped in tradition and is home to the Hanse Stube restaurant in which you will be served sublime French cuisine with both an innovative flair and strong regional influences.

Excelsior means very elevated or high quality and is the main principle of head chef Claudia Schröter, who manages to deliver a high quality and varied offering. Alongside the regular set menu, the Hanse Stube also offers a special wine menu, which is regularly updated and changed to incorporate new ideas. At lunch time, you can take advantage of the business lunch, which can be prepared in less than 59 minutes.

The exacting standards and creativity in the kitchen, coupled with the dignified character of the restaurant, with its mahogany boarding and cosy corner tables, really go to highlight what the restaurant stands for, and afford guests of the Hanse Stube in the Excelsior Hotel Ernst a first class experience.

    Essen und Service sehr gut, Getränke exorbitant hoch !

  • ((*** 8 February 2017 by Özgür Padrok from Köln

    Das Essen war eine regelrechte Enttäuchung! Für diesen Preis hätte ich im La Societe oder im Le Moissonnier deutlich qualitativ hochwertiger gegessen. Mein Gast und ich waren sehr enttäuscht!
    Der Service war gut, Location war gepflegt, und ruhig. Gute Unterhaltung möglich

    The service seems to be in an accelerating way as if wanting to get rid of the guests. Some impatience is showing in older principal...the food is not as fine as I remembered from 6 years ago... For instance the sole was overcooked and the sauce was a non event..

    Wir haben uns anlässlich des Geburtstages meines Mannes ein besonderes Essen gönnen wollen und unsere Erwartungen wurden übertroffen!

    Ganz ausgezeichnetes Restaurant mit klassischer Küche, perfektem Service und fantastischen Weinen!

  • ((((( 25 January 2017 by Günther Gottschalk from Köln

    Die Hanse Stube im Excelsior Hotel Ernst ist das wohl schönste Restaurant Kölns. Auch wenn ich mit dem Essen manchmal nicht zufrieden bin, halte ich der Hanse Stube seit Jahrzehnten die Treue, wenn ich meinen Gästen ein besonders gehobenes Ambiente bieten möchte.

    Great food, great wine, great experience

  • ((((( 20 January 2017 by Marion Müller from Königsdorf

    Wir waren sehr zufrieden, sehr gute Küche und exzellenter Service. Mein Sitzplatz war leider etwas ungünstig mit Blick auf die Eingangstüre und den Flut - einer muss halt da sitzen:)! und wir hätten fast den Hut meiner Schwiegermutter vergessen - da hätte der Service noch aufmerksamer sein können und nicht erst auf Nachfragen den Hut finden dürfen:)!
