Average to good steak restaurant

We were looking for a reasonable steak dinner in Cologne centre and we found Maredo. As it is part of a chain it was not our first choice but the menu looked quite good (incl prices) and the ambiance was fine - and there were quite a few tables already busy. The steak was cooked fine - to our... read more

A very strong memories in this place. I went with my grandmother, aged, 92 years. She wanted good soup. Tomato soup with a hint of cream. A delight. I love the buffet. Salads and raw vegetables to choose from. Very cool. Quiet area with family or couple. Close to the station if it is pressed.

As a vegetarian fan of Maredo restaurants around Europe in the past, this one was disappointing. The help-yourself Salad Buffet had swarms of little flies around the uncovered bowls and some of the choices looked very dry. Glad I had a Baked Potato to fall back on!

Overpriced and average steak house with a salad bar. We went here after a place we had planned on had closed business. The steaks were average at best and overpriced with having to pay for side dishes separately. We both ordered med. rare and one came out rare the other was almost blue and cool in the center. I most... More

I'll be honest. If this place was in the UK, I'd walk straight past it. However, it was near to the hotel and all we wanted was something simple after a long day out. The steak, ribs and burgers were all freshly cooked, came with a mountain of fries and the salad bar was all fresh and crunchy too. 4... More

I was only in Cologne for the afternoon so decided to eat at Maredo as it was close to the station. Upon arrival we were greeted with a lukewarm reception by the hottess before we were told to take a seat anywhere we liked as the resturant as it was only 1/4 full. My friend and i sat down and...

Walked by this place many times and decided to give it a try since since I had just flown in and was too tired to wander much further than where I was staying. It always seems busy but its a chain and a block from the train station, so I wondered if quality was the reason for patronage. The staff... More

Took me forever to be served. Waiter complained about the order because we only ordered coffee and beer. And joked with us until we decided to leave. Never will go there again nor recommend this place.

A good steak but not presented with any care or panache for the price. Average price butthe biggest gripe would be there simply weren't enough staff. The waiter did a commendable job given the number of tables he was covering but getting his attention and then service was too long. Better available unless you really want a Steak.
