It looks like this place doesn't exist anymore. Based on the reviews here I wanted to go there early May but there was an Italian restaurant in it's place.

We ate here in december, this is a typical german restaurant. We had schnitzels and we loved them. Very nice waiter + very good value for money

Walking distance from our hotel near the Dom, we came here based on Trip Advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. We were looking for good food and good atmosphere and we found both. The owners/waiters were fun and friendly and we really enjoyed our evening. The food was very good. It felt like a "local" place, not a tourist trap... More

We wanted to have a very relaxing evening between colleagues from different countries and really enjoy the german food specialties. We were happyli surprised not only of the quality but also of the contents and quantity. The waiter (may be the owner) whilst not having an excellent english helped us to choose their delightful specialties. The beer also helped throughout... More

Conveniently located and yet not a tourist trap. The atmosphere is very friendly and the prices are very reasonable in an area where prices can be quite high--this is an authentic neighborhood place. But while the reviews for this restaurant are understandably high for these features, do not expect the food to be commensurate with the ranking. It is not.... More

We were in Koln with colleagues. We had been looking for a typical german place with "beer and meat" specializing. And this place was our choise. Situated close to the Dome, but a slightly away of main tourist route. Cosy place. We took potato soap, some turkey salad and special snitzel. Soup is rather ordinar, for my taste, but salad... More

Had a night in Cologne and needed some confort food and this pace hit the spot - great beer and a great plate of good food at reasonable prices. The owner is really friendly - hooked me upto his Wi-Fi and chatted to me in English, I'd certainly come back.

We went to lunch here as a party of three. I had an excellent beef rouladen; the food was excellent and the service was very good. The service and staff were also very good. We've generally had very good experiences with any German brauhaus (German version of a pub). The food is not fancy but usually quite good and the... More

Had been a. Busy day at work travelling away from home in UK. Found this place on trip advisor and thought I would give it a go, the food was very good and the beer was good, I would recommend this place to anyone, also the staff spoke very good English which made up for my very bad German.
