Meat, potatoes and beer. Enough Said.

If you like beer and meat this is the place for you. We arrived as the doors opened and all the tables were reserved but were given a table the wasn't needed until 6.30. Really helpful staff and excellent service. I would book or do what we did and get there early. It is closed on Monday's and only... read more

Before this visit I had Schnitzel one time in Berlin. To be honest I didn't want to try it any more. But the reviews of this restaurant are quite good so I decided to take a little risk to try. It seems very local and I guess there're lots of local costmers. It's what I want. I ordered Schnitzel made... More

Visited yesterday with a group of 6. We all had different type of Schnitzel. I had a "Westfälisches Schnitzel" (veal). It was really the best Schnitzel I ever head. My friends were also very happy with theirs and said the same. Portions were really big too. And the service was super friendly. I want to come back as soon as... More

Visited here a couple of times a year ago and was looking forward to going back. Two visits on this trip to Cologne - first with family and friends, second with just family. On both occasions, the place was packed and we had to wait 45 mins or so for seats, but joined the waiting list and had some drinks... More

Crazy busy. Book in advance. But the schnitzels are well worth the effort. Huge, delicious and quite a challenge to finish! A vegetarian friend of my also attempts the cheese schnitzel too. Also a epic challenge! Enjoy!

What I really like about this place is its no-frills ambience. Oma Kleinmann is located on Zülpicher Straße, one of the streets with the highest density of pubs and bars in the city. This type of environment stands for fluctuation, everything is constantly changing, old bars go our of business, new ones open instead. Not so Oma Kleinmann - I... More

Colognes go to destination for schnitzel does not disappoint when it comes to the food. Very popular spot for all kinds sadly some waitering staff hasn't got the greatest attitude.

Great, huge schnitzels that have to be stacked on top of fried potatoes / fries, and still exceed the dimensions of the plate. Thought we'd ordered veal, but realised later (having thoroughly enjoyed it) that it was pork - and that I really should learn to order better auf Deutsch or just stick to more reliable English. Shared a table... More

We had this restaurant on our list of places to try when visiting Cologne. When we met a local family outside the Cathedral, and they recommended it above all other places in the city, we knew we had to go. Unfortunately, reservations are almost always needed, and must be made 48 hours in advance, because the place is always full.... More
