“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 in the 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 provide a professional yet informal and laid back experience that will allow the guest to fully enjoy the dining experience.
Before dinner (and, if necessary, afterwards), the evening can be rounded off in our on the ground floor located Restobar Bayleaf with an outdoor terrace.
True to our motto “Experience Taste! “We invite you on a culinary journey of discovery.
Your Daniel Gottschlich
In the Ox & Klee we offer daily our “Expierience Taste” menu. During the week from Tuesday to Thursday you can also choose from our constantly changing “Signature Menu”.
In front of both menus, we will take you on a journey through the taste components. 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. Sommelier Volker Arndt will be pleased to advise you and to show you our wine list.
Experience Taste Menu
With this menu, you embark on a journey of discovery where, as the name implies, you will gain taste experience. As with any exploration, the thing to discover is not known beforehand. The individual dishes you learn only at the table.
You only choose the number of gears. We’ll take care of everything else. In doing so, 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, the service staff will explain the individual dishes to you. For more tricky questions, the chefs at the table are at your disposal.
During the week from Tuesday to Thursday we also offer our signature menu in three to four courses. Here are the dishes from the menu and can be viewed and downloaded in the link below as a PDF.
Extend your surprise menu with another enjoyable experience: our accompanying drinks and wines.
Wines (0,1 l/course)
Soft drinks (0,1 l/course)
