Best restaurants in Cologne

You can easily find typical sausage and sauerkraut in Cologne, the city has long expanded its culinary repertoire outside the German stereotype, having mastered international cuisine. Michelin stars now adorn many restaurants in Cologne, and the menu includes influences from different regions, from France to the Far East. Cologne restaurants in this selection were grouped into three categories: expensive (more than 45 €), moderate (25 € – 45 €) and cheap (up to 25 €). These are the prices for a three-course lunch, not including drinks. Please note that credit cards may not be accepted at some pubs. Tipping is a matter of personal preference depending on the quality of food and service, usually about 10%.
