Lovely al fresco supper

We were visiting Cologne as part of a week travelling around Europe and stumbled across this restaurant whilst walking along the Rhine. We were made to feel welcome and the staff made every effort to speak English. We both had pizzas which were yummy and both had a litre of beer which was also... read more

Although I must say the food is good, the waiters target Americans! It was only Americans the waiters would aggressively point out a line for tips and keep pointing and aggressively telling Americans to leave a tip. No other groups were targeted and Germans would have told them where to go. I gave a tip as I felt I was... More

Lovely location, comfortable setting, friendly staff but the food was unfortunately not to the same standard. My starter of chicken broth was good. Tasty and nice sized portion, which for €7 in Cologne wasn't overly bad value. My main course of pork, black pudding, fried potatoes and onions was a disappointment. Under cooked black pudding on top of overlooked pork... More

As it was raining fairly heavily when I arrived early to go on a short sightseeing cruise along the Rhine, I dropped into "Der Lowenbrau Koln" for a quick lunch. The staff were friendly and the food was very good. I had one of the day’s specials - the Macaroni Arrabiata - which was particularly tasty. I found this to... More

Altough I think the restaurant is way too dark, the food is good. I chose some German traditional food and it had a great taste.

The restaurants sells itself a real German-Koln type of establishment but to our big disappointment, it only offers the worst possible version of this cuisine. If not for our big group, we would have not ended up in this restaurant. Unfortunately, we 15 persons it was quiet difficult to book a place in Koln during the Christmas Market time. Anyway,...

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
