Food is good, no frills, just the normal what you can find in such a Brauhaus Menu. Service is swift and beer is cheap. The place was packed but for a guy alone there is always a spot. Opted for a potato soup and a schnitzel as a main. was not dissapointed more then enough food on the plate. Prices... More

This is a nice traditional beer house. The beer was good and there was a cosy, relaxed atmosphere in the place. My only issue was that some of the staff came across as quite rude when dealing with us.

If you want to experience a proper Brauhaus atmosphere, this is the place to go. The food is excellent, traditional German, and the whole place is very Kölsch. Which, yes, includes a bit of noise. If you'd like to avoid that, perhaps try going for lunch - in the evenings it definitely gets busy and noisy, but the waiters are... More

Decided to go before attending football match for a light bite and some kölsch wasn't disappointed, attended too really quickly by a humorous smiling barman, who once he found out I was English quickly found some menus and started helping me with my broken German. Just ordered a bockwurst as just wanted a small meal, food was delicious and the... More

Lovely old brewery. Very cosy with friendly staff. One thing on the plus side, the ladies was on the ground floor (most places you have to go downstairs and when you have arthritic knees its hard). We didn't eat, but I did think the food prices seemed a bit high compared to other breweries.

Bringing Italian people to your old hometown Cologne is a tall order... I knew I wouldn't risk anything going to Malzmuehle and I was right: all 4 of us enjoyed good food, good beer and a lively, Koelsch atmosphere. Kitchen was a bit overwhelmed by the amount of guests and their food orders so I had to wait really long... More

Visited this establishment in December 2015. We were recommended this by our hotel and were not disappointed. Walked in to an overcrowded area and thought we did not have a chance of getting a meal. They found us a table that we shared with another couple celebrating a birthday. Food, I was told was typical of the region and we... More

I was there with friends on a Sunday evening. The evening before was completely full so we tried again. Typical German brewery, fast service, good food, great beer and huge dishes.

We go to this brauerei every time we visit Cologen. It is always packed with locals and also some tourists. It serves a good range of food and excellent kolsch. Service is brisk with good humoured and English speaking waiters. Like all popular places it can get noisy but it is part of the atmosphere. Outstanding quality of food and... More
