An essential stop if you want to rediscover the soul of Portuguese wines (and food). You can practically hear the seagulls in the background!

A love story

She's German, he's Portuguese. As professionals in the field of gastronomy, they decided to share their love of wine and authentic Portuguese specialties with the people of Cologne. Saudade was born. Carmen runs the kitchen. Alvaro is in charge of the wines which he personally imports from vintners in the Alentejo and Douro regions.

A little slice of Portugal

The food menu fits onto one page – and on a slate (for the daily specials), while the rest of the menu is taken up by the wide range of wines. After all, Saudade isn't a restaurant, it's a wine bar. The culinary specialties such as Bacalhau, or the compote of 'drunken pears' marinated in Port wine have been reinterpreted with brio, but their main function is to enhance the experience of the beverage you've chosen with the host's expert advice. Faithful to its name, Saudade transports you into an inviting atmosphere, steeped in nostalgia and faraway dreams.

I'm a translator and editor for several publications and I love the hidden side of the city, its secret gardens, its discrete gourmet restaurants and its new, high-design spots. Outings with my friends end late at night. My little extra: a dynamic, fun and really trendy Cologne!
