I had dinner there, which was good and they serve very good beer. The restaurant was very busy on Friday evening.

Even though I am a meat and potatoes lover, I have to admit I found that most German food tasted the same to me! However, we went here when visiting our past exchange student's family and this was the one exception! We were a large group of ten and were seated immediately. It was a festive atmosphere and our service... More

We came and had a coffee to look after a recommendation from a local. We then wandered through the "Alt Stadt" and checked out the other places that side of town. Then decided to go back and eat there. The Bier Haxe. ( pork hock with very good cabbage and a large bread dumpling) was great as was the "sauer... More

Good local menu - but you need to like pork! I had a fantastic looking crispy pig's knuckle. Absolutely huge so I could not finish it. The place was heaving, lively and the staff were friendly. We had a good night here.

After work or during trade fair times, one of the few places I attend in the old town. Special is the large indoor area, take a walk around.

We had a late lunch in Gilden im Zims during a day-trip to Cologne. The restaurant is located on a main square and was extremely busy when we visited - nearly all the outside seating was taken. Service was slow as restaurant was very busy; that said, the waiting staff were friendly and acknowledged us. The food was good -... More

Surprisingly it is hard to find a café that served potato pancakes in Koln. we found this location and their potato pancakes are excellent. We sat outside, having an order of the pc's and their Kolsch beer. It was excellent.
