This is a good restaurant to visit if you are staying at the Marriott. Opposite direction to the city centre but only a couple of minutes away. Good food (perhaps some it was a bit too salty and their focus is definitely the meat) and service.Well priced and very popular (we went on a Monday and it was full).

Casual local pub atmosphere, Great menu of local German food. Really good specials. They only tale Euros, no Credit Cards. Only serve Koln Gaffel beer like most restaurants in Cologne.

We found this place around the corner from the Domstern where we were staying. Really enjoyed a couple of beers with classic German grub - nothing fancy or gourmet, just good food and drink at a good price. Would definitely go back!

This place was recommended by our hotel, the Marriott, which was a short walk. We went two nights in a row. The first night we were lucky because it was Tuesday and they do fresh potato pancakes on Tuesday only. There was no where to sit as it a tiny place but you can sit with strangers which we did...

We stayed at the Domstern and this friendly bar us just round the corner. Frequented by locals which is a good sign. Excellent beer and basic but good quality food and very good price. We really liked the atmosphere of this bar away from the tacky central bars. Would recommend

This pub is the best of the bunch in cologne. Its very simple, cheap and excellent beer and food in a rustic setting. Tries several pubs in cologne and this one stands out from the rest.

A short walk from our hotel Domstern. Very characteristic German pub atmosphere. Food was good for pub food. The beer was good. It was quite noisy as you would expect from a busy pub. Good value. An interesting German experience.

A great place to come for good traditional beer and food. Friendly service, lovely food and a fine example of the Kolsch experience! Well worth walking out from the town centre to visit.

What a gem to find. After a long, long journey from South Africa it was a pleasure to sit in this awesome bistro. Amazing food and an awesome vibe . Do yourself a favour and go and visit.
