As a first time in Cologne we were looking for something authentic and German. This place was ideal. Was extremely busy when we arrived. We put our names on the list and waited around 40 minutes for a table, but were kept topped up with cold beer for our wait. Once we had our table, the... read more

Great value for huge huge portions of rustic German cuisine. The Schnitzel (incl 'proper' Viennese Veal) barely fit the big plates and will not leave you hungry. Booking essential and it does get very busy.

really liked this place, staff were friendly and the schnitzels which I think is the only food they sell, were amazing! Make sure you have a good appetite! We arrived here quite late, it was rammed but sat in 40mins or so. Good value for money.

One of Colognes finest. Don't bother making a reservation – just go there and expect to wait 30-40 minutes. But that's part of the fun: You can stand at the bar, mingle with locals and keep the beer coming. After that the magnificent Schnitzel will taste even better. This is Köln at its best, don't miss it. (extra pro tipp:... More

Went here last night with our fingers crossed for a table. It was really bustling but the lovely lady popped us on a table and warned us that we might have to have another couple at our table. The food was really great, and so much more than just a giant portion. The beer kept flowing and we met some... More

I love schnitzel so when I saw the reviews for this restaurants I knew I had to give it a try. I took my parents there for their first dinner in Europe and was not disappointed. We ordered a schnitzel each; my mother had the veal one while my father and I ordered the regular beef schnitzel. We were so... More

This place can't be missed! You have to book in advance. It's always busy. Small bar with space for meal. Great atmosphere. And schnitzel they serve....! Unbelievable! Fantastic! And many varieties. Every time we are in Cologne we visiting there!

I was in town attending a trade fair and after reading all the reviews I decided to give it a try. To reach this place from the Central Station you need to take the underground and then a short stroll with a tramway: it is an easy journey as public transports are well organized. As soon as I walked in... More

We tried to book a table after having read so many good review. They were already fully booked and we were told they'll put us on the waiting list. However we were lucky enough to get a table in 5 min, because we were only 2. The others waiting like an hour at least. The food is so-so. They serve... More
