Amazing food. Just amazing, we eat here every time we visit Cologne without fail. The only downside is the cocktails are pretty weak alcohol wise although they are still delicious!

Almost four years ago we visited this restaurant: great food, friendly service and a good price. This week we visited it again to find it changed. The staff was still friendly but too small for the amount of guests: it even seemed to take ages before we got our drinks! The kitchen wasn't what it used to be neither: the... More

Don't let the interior fool you. We'd got a tip for nice restaurant. When we arrived we were a bit surpriced about the interior with the plactic chairs. The restaurant is small and there were quite a lot of people. We'd managed to get a table and the food they brought up was so tasty! We had a 3 course... More

The food was nice but nothing very special, just ok. When taken the price in consideration it is not cheap. It is also not very expensive, but the seasoning could be improved.

After lots of flammkuchen, sausage and other local specialities needed something fresher, lighter and 'zingier' & Cyclo certainly hit the spot. Good authentic flavours and friendly service. Only negative was the price, however when next in Koln will definitely be back.

Having been to Vietnam, and being familiar with their cuisine, it was a pleasant surprise that the food at this little place was so authentic. Like in Vietnam, everything comes with lots of fresh herbs, is deliciously light and tasty with unusual (different from Chinese or Thai) sauces.I have only been at lunch-time where I have usually had the excelent...

I discovered Cyclo on a visit to Colgone while we were planning our move here. Since permanently arriving 2 months ago, we visit Cyclo at least once a week and will continue to do so. The location just of Heumarkt is very convenient and there are usually seats available early in the evening, although the restaurant is small and it... More

My husband and I live in Cologne and are lucky enough to live only about a 5 minute walk from Cyclo. This is definitely one of our favorite restaurants! The food is outstanding, I for one simply can not get enough of their chicken roll starter. Anything we have ever tried here has been so delicious. Service is quick, prices... More
