Cool location, comfort food, average service

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.

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

The famous restaurant “Bei Oma Kleinmann” in Cologne is the restaurant with the best schnitzels you can have. You will not visit this restaurant for a luxury interior, but for when you like or want to have the best schnitzel you ever had, you need to be here.

The schnitzels were of course very very good. The waitress was really nice, and the prices really fair. I would go there again!

My wife and I met our former exchange student and her boy friend for dinner. The schnitzel was larger than the large plate that it came on. It was tender lightly breaded and delicious. I highly recommend this as a must place to eat in Cologne.

A great atmosphere reigns in this very relaxed casual restaurant. The staff are both laid back and uber efficient. Superb and enormous schnitzels - skip lunch if you are going for dinner! Overall great fun, good value and delicious food. Really recommended.

Based on the previous reviews, I made a reservation for dinner for two! The restaurant was full. Maggie was our server and she was terrific...always checking to see if we were "happy"! The food was delicious and well prepared - best veal we have ever had! We shared the Viennese Schnitzel based on the reviews. The German potato salad was... More
