I have been here a few times, and four out of five is my 'average rating'. The food is excellent (try the Haxe), and the Sion Kölsch is always a tasty brew. However, the standard of service varies greatly depending on which member of staff is looking after you - some of them are friendly, attentive and efficient, others are... More

I ate here on 21/7/14 for dinner and it was definitely the worst meal I've had in Germany ever. I ordered a schnitzel and it was definitely one from a packet (probably frozen), not made in house. I make my own schnitzel at home, and I've had it in various restaurants across Germany and Eastern Europe, I know what homemade... More

Brauhaus Sion is only about a 5 minute walk from the Dom. It has a few different rooms so it was no problem getting a place to sit without a reservation. The waiter we got was very friendly. I say it like this because as we went in through the main entrance and we walked to the right towards a... More

With the outdoor seating Braushaus Sion was a great place to stop for a local brew. The service was very good with friendly smiles all round. The beer too was great and just what the doctor ordered after spending half the day sightseeing.

This is another good place to drink Kolsch beer. The atmosphere was good but the staff not overly friendly.

The food was very poor. It had obviously been kept warm for a long time and was dry and tasteless. There are definitely better places to eat in Cologne.

And we did. Nice sausages and pork cheeks. However the staff was not very nice with us. I seems that they did not seems very happy... More

The Priory of Sion is hiding in plain sight. Their headquarters is the Brauhaus Sion in Cologne. They communicate via satire, tom-foolery, craziness, insults, and impertinence. An outsider cannot tell what is information and what is disinformation. Insiders cannot tell whether they are inside or outside. You may be a member of the Priory of Sion without knowing it. If...
