Where to Eat in Bonn: The Best Restaurants and Bars

July 15, 2017 Karren Gelb

Though probably best known as the capital of West Germany from 1949 to 1990 (and of reunified Germany until 1999), Bonn actually has a history dating back to the 1st century BC. Roman soldiers were stationed here and the largest known Roman fort was built at Bonn. In medieval times, the town gained prominence when the Archbishop of Cologne transferred his seat to Bonn. The city's most famous son is Ludwig van Beethoven, born in 1770 at Bonngasse, where a museum now honors him.

Halbedels

Reviewed By P F - Winston Salem, North Carolina

This restaurant was a great find. It is quite expensive but worth it. The atmosphere is very upscale and so is the food. The chef takes great pride in what is served and explains each dish. Plan on spending the entire evening and you will feel like a judge from the TV show "Iron Chef."

Strandhaus

Reviewed By Andrea L - Upton Magna, United Kingdom

Was taken here by a friend and was thoroughly impressed. The staff were friendly and the food was delicious and quite unusual. Would definitely recommend but advise if you want to eat on their Terrace to make a reservation. We both had the three course surprise menu and were really happy with each course. The photo is pork with tomato polenta on a bed of cabbage - yum!.

El Dorado

Reviewed By Stacey V - Europe

We found this great little place through some local friends who actually had their wedding here, and have fallen in love with it. The chef is Portuguese and fantastic and his wife and brother both work in the restaurant. The service is always excellent. They remember you when you return. The fresh fish and oysters are always my favorite. The tapas are great try to calamari or dates in bacon! Great place, wonderful patron overlooking Bonn in the summer. You will be happy you stopped by.

Yunico Japanese Fine Dining

Exclusive and easygoing. Japanese dumplings, miso salmon with yuzu turnips, sorbet with Szechuan pepper and traditional nigiris and makis go down very well with the business clientele and Japanese food fans. The dining area is light and airy with cream-coloured furniture. The tables are round and the tableware is exquisite. White man-sized vases provide a striking decorative feature throughout the room. The staff are friendly and will help you choose the right wine and the right sake from a very wide selection available. There is even Japanese beer on the menu.

Taj India Restaurant

Reviewed By AkoSiAys - Bonn, Germany

We've been here a couple of times and brought friends the last time. They also enjoyed it. Even the one who is not into Indian dishes, liked it!
We usually order the set menu as it got drinks, appetizers, main dish and dessert. They also got a vegetarian option. They also ask if you want it spicy and how or not spicy at all. Just a tip, the set menus are actually big enough for an additional one or two persons.
The staff are friendly! The place is not that big and as the chairs are also big and bulky, it makes the place look smaller. The wallpaper and decorations are too much for me but I love the food, so I don't mind.
One critical thing is the restroom. It should really be cleaned up!!! I was told the women's room is worse. I hope they do something about it.

Phoenicia Lounge

Reviewed By maithelopez - Bonn, Germany

The restaurant is close to the Hotel President in Poppelsdorf. Reservation is advisable since it gets very crowded, for family or groups. Tables are very comfortable and is a very nice ambience. Staff is very friendly, fast and helpful. Portions are good, Kafka taste very authentic and the dessert is a truly delicatessen with almonds and honey.
I loved the seasoning and even the individual portions are big enough for two persons.
