Nice located at the Rhein, excellent location to relax with the view on the river. Food is good. Areas to improve are hospitality, approach of employees / waitresses is not very friendly, seems they are doing what they have to. Would also recommend to have English speaking staff.

My wife and I were married at the Rheinterrassen in July 2016. From beginning of the initial contact through the wedding day reception, our experience dealing with the venue was wonderful. I am not the sort to sing praises of many places, but Rheinterrassen is a 5-star wedding venue in Köln! Positives The people we were in contact with were... More

Nice location alongside river Rhine. Waited to be served for 20 minutes. Hordes of waiters roaming around, but no one taking notice of us. Although we were well dressed, polite and ready to spend money, obviously they didn't want our business. So we left the place. On the way out, we complained to one person at the bar counter. But...

I have been here three times now and each time I'm impressed with the fantastic view across the river. If you can stay to watch the sunset and then the lights on the other side of the river, it is worth it. The food is average at best for the price, but the view more than makes up for it.... More

Good restaurant with a great Cathedral view. As I went in the summer time, it's a very good option for dinner, to see the sunset and the city.

We had a great time in this restaurant, really. Cool atmosphere, great staff, fine drinks. The only thing that bothered me was the fact that the quality of the dishes was light-years away from justifying the cost. We knew we were going out to a high end restaurant, but we expected the food to be better when we'd browsed the... More

Visited as a group of 14 business people and had a really good evening (helped by beer, 10 bottles of wine, and various grappa's). Our waitress/server was superb - could not have done more for us. Friendly, smiled a lot and was patient while we asked pretty much the same menu questions from one end of the table to the... More

We were worried about the comments we read about snobbish service and poor value for money, though we still decided to go to the restaurant. It was great! Everything went smoothly and we received a freindly and warm service and enjoyed a very tasty meal. The views of the Dome at night are worth paying a bit more extra money.
