Taste of Home

The latest discovery of the German cuisine inspires us. Everywhere you can feel a returning to the homemade classics. The old recipies loose their dust and get a new modern interpretation. Fresh, light and tasty dishes are getting developed which do not have to hide infront of other cuisines worldwide.

Germany is also home of many different cultures. Also our chefs come from places all over the world. This culinaric melting pot reveales itself in our every season changing menu. Our favourite dishes from all over the world also find their place here. This is how home tastes like today!

A very important part of our kitchen is the grill. It's always very hot here and we sizzle up the tastiest steaks and chops for you. We guarantee top quality meat not only through our perfect preparation, but also through the best farming methods we can find.

At Elefant you will therefore not find the cheapest steak or the biggest schnitzel in town. But you will get delicious and healthy food!

Fresh Tradition

Now almost 400 years ago was the first certified mentioning of "the Elefant" right here in the heart of Bonn. Although initially just an ordinary tavern of sorts, serving mostly pilgrims and farmers of the surrounding regions, it was built to last.

Over the upcoming centuries it would increasingly become a beloved meeting point for the good people of Bonn. The central location, in correspondence with the hard work and effort of its hosts, made it a highly popular inn with a good name and reputation all over town.

During the long course of its history the name of the inn changed several times. The "Elefant" became the "Black Raven" ("Schwarzer Rabe"), afterwards the "Crooked Corner" ("Schiefes Eck") and later on "The Squashed" ("Der Gequetschte").

Now, after extensive renovations of the old building structure, the new and improved "Elefant" is delighted to continue the long tradition of warm and welcoming hospitality for the good citizens of Bonn, farmers, pilgrims and all its visitors to come.

As a cheerful team, we always want our guests to have a good time with us.

With passion and kindness, we bring our restaurant to life every day - good service is a matter of honour.

Our good mood also comes from the fact that our team feels like a big family and we always look forward to seeing each other when we come to work.
