Best Beer! Always kept our glasses full

My husband and I came here to have a few beers after a long day of walking/touring around the city. We did not eat here, but we did have quite a few number of beers. This place had, by far, my favorite draught beer of the whole trip. The beer came in the smaller glasses, but our server always... read more

When we visited this restaurant it was a busy Friday night. One can expect having to wait a little longer. However, we did not expect to be treated this badly. The waiters cursing at you, pushing you aside to get to another table, etc. Never had we seen such rudeness in a restaurant.

I would visit here again for my next trip to Cologne but only just. We stumbled across this place is its side alley location, saw it was busy and decided to give it a go. Unlike other reviewers, our waiter was nice enough. He knew we were tourists and gave us just enough attention to achieve the 3 stars out... More

Paffgen Kolsch has to be one of the best in Cologne. Established in 1883 and still brewing the same exact beer today. what a place. order a Brat and a potato salad. The ber goes down very smoothly.

Great place to experience some local feeling and flavors. It's a must in Köln. In the evening it gets all noisy and crowded, but that was just we were looking for. The waiters bring you your Kölsch without asking :) I really enjoyed my stay.

This place looked great from the outside and had a large crowd inside. Found a place to stand at a table and was presented with a small glass of beer as is the norm. Was asked for (by way of a grunt) cash immediately instead of the usual running a tab. I then went to another table to be shouted... More

A nice place with typical german atmosphere and typical german cuisine. We ordered a 300g steak, it was very well made. Prices are reasonable for the city center. Regarding the service - it was a young waiter, who was trying to be funny in his own way, but I can imagine some people would consider his behaviour rude.

I used to live in Cologne, and unfortunately never went in this place at the time. Lovely old german brewery hall, stylishly decorated with lots of interesting old german artefacts. The menu was full of really good authentic dishes, I had the "Pfeffer Baron" which was really nice and just what you want in a german brewery / restaurant. Defintely... More

Have been here several times with guests, it is my absolute favourite. Extensive meny with classical German and central European dishes, together with a wide variety of beers. Wine list is, like always in places like this, limited but the wines are good. The best here is of course the Kölsch beer. (other beers are available as well) It comes... More
