Hardly ever I got near an Austrian restaurant in the past. At least if it wasn´t in Austria itself. Gruber´s Restaurant is the exception that happened yesterday and made us want to go back to fine Austrian cuisine.
Located between the centre of Cologne and the zoo area, the restaurant is visited by many business people from the surrounding insurance companies for lunch. So they provide a small but excellent choice for lunch and a menu selection during dinner time. Plus a wide range of Austrian and local wines. The cuisine mixes Austrian elements with Mediterranean ones.
Service, food and drinks are quite good, so we might go back in the future for a full dinner. The pricing is fair, though some of the wines can be expensive by bottle. The place is not too big, so a reservation helps a lot.
All in all five out of six points!
