From Paris to Tokyo
"Our aim is to please guests with what we do." That's the creed at VICTOR’S FINE DINING BY CHRISTIAN BAU – holder of three Michelin stars since 2005.
Let the passionate cuisinier, host and multiple winner of the title Chef of the Year Christian Bau transport you to entirely new culinary horizons – from Paris to Tokyo. His cuisine combines French influences with the taste experiences, techniques and traditions of Japan. This results in an unmistakeable signature and his very own style: bau.stil.Menu Paris - TokioRestaurant flyer
This is where menus become maps of the world. With unique dishes made from exclusive products of the very highest quality, respecting nature and the seasons – classically based, inspired by the Far East, and presented with style and élan.
Fish, seafood, seaweed, in many cases raw: about 85% of the dishes at VICTOR'S FINE DINING are based on creatures from the sea. They are perfectly complemented and accompanied by Nina Mann, Gault&Millau Sommelière of the Year 2020. What drives her: continuing the story of the plate in the glass.MENU 'PARIS – TOKIO'

"Our aim is to make people happy with what we do." Not only does host and head chef Christian Bau live this sentence every day, but so does the entire team at VICTOR'S FINE DINING. And how do they manage it? It's really quite simple: by being happy themselves.
Every single person gives 100 percent every day – that's why every single individual is so important. Christian Bau also lets his team feel this. Respect and appreciation are important ingredients for passion at the stove and in the service. VICTOR'S FINE DINING also deserves three stars as an employer.
Christian Bau has been head chef and host at VICTOR'S FINE DINING since 1998, when it was still known as Victor's Gourmet-Restaurant Schloss Berg. He gained his first Michelin star during his first year. Just seven years later, Christian Bau had become Germany's youngest 3-star chef in the culinary elite – and he remains there to this day.
After qualifying, he found a great teacher in Harald Wohlfahrt. In the early years of his career, Christian Bau impressed the world with his classic French cuisine. But then, after several trips to Asia, the passionate chef developed his ultimate, unmistakeable style. Christian Bau was one of the first to combine French haute cuisine with Japanese products.
He also successfully pioneered the "Carte blanche" and the concept of the "4 Hands Dinner", in which he cooked side by side with top chefs such as Simon Taxacher, Sergio Herman and Nick Bril as well as his former mentor Harald Wohlfahrt – a real novelty in award-winning gastronomy. Bau's main guiding principle: "Do things with passion or not at all." He stands at the stove every day with joy and passion – and that's dedication you can taste.More about Christian Bau
As the sommelière at VICTOR'S FINE DINING, Nina Mann has been responsible for the liquid accompaniment to its menus since 2016. She always finds the perfect match for each course – and for the guest's palate. The young wine expert knows how to incorporate the region's excellent wines – from the Moselle, Saar and Ruwer – as well as the great classics, for instance from Bordeaux and Burgundy, and to keep on surprising the true connoisseur.
Nina Mann is not only a state-approved sommelière and an exceptionally talented wine expert, but she has also completed further training in London and is now a Certified Sake Sommelier. An ideal combination, given the cosmopolitan culinary style of Christian Bau and his passion for playing with Japanese elements.
Nina Mann has already been honoured three times as "Sommelière of the Year". In 2016, she was the first woman to receive the title from the Austrian trade magazine Falstaff; in 2018 Schlemmer Atlas honoured her expertise, and in 2020 she received the ultimate accolade from the renowned restaurant guide Gault&Millau. Its summary: "With a fine empathy for the flavours of highly complex cuisine and the intentions of the guests, she recommends sake with exactly the same level of expertise as mature Moselle Rieslings (and the occasional beer)."
As restaurant manager at VICTOR'S FINE DINING, Felix Kress has been ensuring everything runs smoothly since 2021. As a host, he always strives to create the best possible experience for his guests. It is precisely this dedication that makes him such an excellent fit for the team.
Sommelière Nina Mann met Felix Kress during his training as a hotel manager at the Althoff Hotel in Stuttgart's Schlossgarten. He then had a steep career in the Vendôme restaurant in the Grandhotel Schloss Bensberg in Bergisch Gladbach: Felix Kress worked his way up from commis de rang to deputy restaurant manager. "Little by little, I got a better and better feeling for the needs and expectations of my guests."
He has perfected the art of always finding the balance between professionalism and personality to this day. His guests appreciate him very much for his first-class advice and at the same time his easy-going manner, thanks to which they can have a hearty laugh with him from time to time.
Showing character – he also conveys this ability to his team. As a manager, he encourages each of his colleagues to contribute in their own individual way to the unique experience of the guests.
