Went for lunch. The place is near the train station which is convenient. However, I wish we took the time to look for a different place. Food was terrible. I took a soup ("hearty goulash" as was written in the menu. It is a soup from a can (not edible). The salad buffet is equally bad: also looked like canned... More

Maredo is a chain of steakhouse with a spanish touc all over Germany. I have visited several of these establishments over the years and in many cities. The experience is similar in all of them. Very friendly staff and good food with reasonable prices. The one in Koeln Altstadt is at the edge of the square and is a very... More

Whilst staying in Cologne recently we had occasion to use the Maredo on a couple of occasions for our lunch. Situated on the main square at the Heumarkt, we found the waitresses to be very friendly and polite and the food to be fresh and enjoyable but basic. The prices are reasonable, by local standards but slightly more expensive than... More

We ate here on our first night in Colonge. The steaks were a good size, served the way we requested, but somehow just a bit "meh". Great salad bar, friendly service, but something was missing - it was a Friday nightm but there was no atmosphere, no sense of "the weekend" and it was quite overpriced.

We dined here in May and enjoyed a great meal, the service was very good, food fresh and enjoyable and reasonably priced. My tip is that for around 8E you can just have the salad bar and it is the best salad bar I have seen and represents a real bargain.

While in Cologne center, visited for the first time this restaurant. The salad bar is complete and with fresh salads. The meat quality was excellent. Tender and tasty. In despite of having a good number of customer the service was good. It was a good experience.

Spotted this restaurant while looking for some place near the station for lunch during a change of trains in Cologne. The menu is based mostly on grills and a salad bar. We opted for what we hoped would be a quick option of a grilled chicken salad with a side order of potato wedges. Although the restaurant was fairly quiet... More

One of us had a steak and the other the chicken. The steak was what you would think for the price and I would not order the chicken again. The salad bar was full of good items and the service was good. It is exactly what you would expect from this type of restaurant.

Came here on the first evening of a four day break in Cologne. This Restaurant is close to the Cathedral in the heart of the City. I had Wiener Schnitzel with fries and a salad from the salad bar. Food was reasonably priced, given the location, and portion size made this very filling. I liked the Wiener a lot. I'm... More
