“We want food to be an experience for our guests”
This claim has made the kitchen and service in the Ox & Klee prescribed. Here we like to go new ways.
Our kitchen stands for new ideas that should not be complicated but should be easily accessible to the guest. We also think that food should fill you up but not full. That’s why we cook low in carbohydrates. Our dishes include lots of vegetables, meat from a species-appropriate attitude and fish and seafood from controlled catch.
The experience at Ox & Klee does not just take place on the plate. Located in the middle of the three crane houses, the Ox & amp; Klee’s interior design reflects the modern architecture of Cologne’s new landmarks. The view of the marina gives rise to an unfamiliar holiday mood in the middle of the cathedral city.
Our service team led by restaurant manager Robby Jung is pleased to be professional, yet informal and easy-going, to make sure that you can fully enjoy the experience of eating at the Ox & Klee.
Please visit us before the meal (and possibly afterwards) at Bayleaf Restaurant & Bar, located on the ground floor with outdoor terrace, to complete the evening.
True to our motto “Experience Taste!” We invite you on a culinary journey of discovery. Let yourself be surprised!
Daniel Gottschlich & Erik Schmitz
In the Ox & Klee we daily offer our “Experience Taste” menu. In each course we take you on a surprise journey through six taste senses.
Before the menu, we will tune you in with that and complete the taste experience after the menu. From salty to bitter, the journey continues. Let yourself be surprised!
We are happy to offer you a suitable wine or non-alcoholic beverage accompaniment to the menus. Our Sommelier will be pleased to advise you and to show you our wine list.
Experience Taste Menu
Embark on a journey of discovery with our surprise menu. As the name implies, you gain taste experience. As with any journey of discovery, what is to be discovered is not known beforehand. The individual dishes you find out only at the table.
You only choose the number of courses. (Six or eight courses on Friday and Saturday, five to eight courses on other days.) We will take care of everything else. We gladly consider your wishes regarding incompatibilities or “I do not like it so much” to the completely vegetarian or vegan menu. During the menu, our service team will explain the individual dishes to you. For more tricky questions, the chefs are at your disposal at the table as well.
