Good option for dinner

This was really handy to come for dinner as it was very close to our hotel. Our food and drinks were enjoyable and there was a nice atmosphere inside. Staff were very friendly and shared a few jokes.

Went here for dinner when visiting the Christmas markets. Had a pork knuckle and thought the food was good and very. Reasonably priced considering the portion sizes. While we were there the waiters seemed intent on getting as drunk as possible. During the hour we spent there we saw two of them stand behind a pillar and drink five beers... More

It is located very near the dome. There are some very good Brauhauses in Cologne, but ,it seems, the Brauhaus Sion isn't one of them: Slow service, poor quality food. I had a roasted knuckle, it seemed to be from the previous day. The salad was poor. There are outdoor tables, but they are on the sidewalk of a rather... More

I went here for what was supposed to be lunch and drinks. It wasn't particularly busy given the season (between Christmas and New Years) and the patronage I'd experienced at similar venues in the area. We sat at a table outside and the water acknowledged this and gave us two Kolsch. That's where the service ended. Upon finishing my beer,... More

From outside and when you first step in, this looks like a small brauhaus. This is just the opposite, it is enormous and still has the typical brauhaus atmosphere. The food is AMAZING and so is the service. The only drawback is that they only have the Sion beer on tap.

This is hands-down the worst experience I've ever had in a restaurant. The waiters were all extremely rude. When we tried to order in German, the waiter ridiculed us and proceeded to ignore us when we tried to remind him about a forgotten order. He repeated this when we asked for the bill and dismissed our questions about the check... More
