Typical cologne location with nice atmosphere but the food is rather poor. I had the typical "himmel un Äd". First time I didn't like it.

WE followed the recommendation from TripAdvisor. We got exactly what we looked for - A genuine German place with lots of locals that having good time with beer and food. As we enter the crowded place we felt the strong smell of the warm sour cabbage. We liked it because that's was one of the dishes we wanted to have.... More

Try their pork knuckle, it is very tasty. Good local beer as well. Some waiters did not speak english which make difficult to order meals some times.

Four of us were looking for a place to eat. A native told us about a place but when we went there, it was closed! So, we decided on this place - what a great find! It was our first night in Europe - a Friday night. We entered and this place was PACKED but the maî·tre d' said that... More

I was here four years ago as a guest to a German company. At that time it was a company of six persons. I remembered the place and that the tried to make a reservation via mail on their website for two persons. I tried twice but it was ignored totally. No answer. They had a fax number but I... More

Nice warming food. Goulash soup more solid than soup. Cheap kolsch at 165. Slightly away from the main area and currently covered in scaffolding and sheeting but still very much open. Nice place and staff

Had a fabulous first night in Cologne here, so much so that every place we went to after just didn't live up to that first experience. Beer on tap and a lively atmosphere made for a great meal. The pork knuckle was to die for and the sausage was good too! The only downside I can think of was that... More

Terrible service. He just laughed in our faces when we asked for tap water next to the 20Eur meal and drink. Absolutely astonishing ignorance. Hot day, thirsty, bottled water is bad for the environment, and we didn't want to only drink alcohol.

You go for the beer ... you enjoy the food and the ambiance of a traditional beer joint. We visited during a weeknight without reservations and were easily seated at a table with a couple extra seats. No worries if you don't speak German, the staff (as well as our table mates) were friendly and helpful. After three days in... More

Wonderful restaurant situated just on the outskirts of all the "tourists restaurant area". Even though the restaurant was very busy, the welcome was very warm, the shoulder of pork was excellent, their house brewed beer was pretty good and always flowing. Just a little word of advise, when you no longer want your glass to be refilled, put your beer... More
