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

My partner and I went here and got what we wanted, which was a bit more of an authentic brauhaus experience. It was packed on a Saturday night but got perched on the end of a table and got into the swing of things. Since our German is terrible it was a bit of a gamble with our food, but... More

A must for the ambiance, all wood inside etc. Did not drink beer for lunch and seemed to surprise the waiter.... My pals's sauerbraten was good, not great. My daily special of Koenigsberger Klopse with caper sauce, a dish I had never eaten in its home country, was copious and tasty and CHEAP, less than 10 euros
