We stopped in here for awhile for a few drinks with friends. The only reason I give it such a low rating was the service was lacking tremendously. For me to say this is something, I'm usually the last to downgrade a place because of service, but the guy we had was approaching intolerable. Beer was good and wine a... More

We popped over to Cologne to the Christmas markets on the 21st December, we were only in Cologne for 3 days but stopped here for our evening meal and I'm glad we did! Very friendly atmosphere as soon as you walked in and each table had a candle making it feel more romantic. When I'm in Germany I always try... More

This restaurant is in a hotel. The decoration is so lovely. It has many kinds of beers. We had Koeln local beer, it was quite nice. We didn't have any meals though, they looked so nice. It's located on river side. It also has outside seats, so you'll enjoy the lovely decoration inside, and the beautiful view outside. The staff... More

After a nice Christmas shopping day with friends, and before heading back home, we chose to stop by this restaurant. We should have hit the road earlier. The waiter was the rudest and is the reason why I give 1 out 5 points. -No "hello" no "goodbye" no "thank you" -indicates you were to sit from the other side of... More

After a very nice day of Christmas shopping we tried to find a cosy place and this restaurant had the looks for it. We went in, the waiter (older guy with black hair) indicated from the other side of the restaurant where we had to sit. After a while he came to take our order and when we asked him... More

My wife and I ate in this restaurant during our stay in Cologne. The first evening Sat 13th Dec was extremely busy and we had to wait for 10 mins for a table, but that's a good sign for us when a restaurant is busy...! The decor was traditional and had plenty of character. The serving staff were also friendly... More

We tried to eat here after finding several other places we liked the look of fully booked on a Friday night. This place had plenty of space so we seated ourselves and waited for someone to come over. A waiter came over, threw 2 menus down on the table, shouted something to his mate upstairs, and walked off. Not a... More

This is a really nice place to eat - cosy, warm and welcoming. The choice of menu is wide, but it is slightly overpriced for what you get - particularly the starters. Service was efficient, food quality excellent but drinks extremely overpriced - obviously there to rip off tourists. We ate here three years ago - hence, we went back.... More

My husband and I stumbled across this restaurant after searching for ages for somewhere that made German food that wasn't fully booked. We managed to walk right in and were greeted by friendly staff who spoke good English. Some of the menu is pretty pricey but the more local dishes were very reasonably priced and absolutely delicious. I had the... More
