Great food, slow service

We had lunch here. The food, pork wiener schnitzel, was excellent, the Kolsch beer good. The atmosphere was also good beer hall vibe. The only negative was the slow service.

Thirsty for some real German home made beer decided to check this cool restaurant even though it seemed as a very traditional German Restaurant (with lots of schnitzel) we dared to ask for vegetarian dishes to the friendly waiter (who speaks Spanish!) and the 2 options they had were delicious! Located conveniently near the Cologne Cathedral and with very good... More

We travelled here as a couple for drinks in the day. It is situated in the station. The drinks are cheap and the service was excellent. Good atmosphere and good service.

Tartar beef steak too raw, other foods not in good quality (eg. Potatos put in one big lump). The service ruined the whole thing. We asked for checking the bill, but the waiter just said that he is not our waiter for the table. How arrogant and rude the waiter is. The environment was not good, most part of the... More

Found this german pub behind the Cathedral. It has several rooms many with dark wood panelling and lots of seating. They serve food but we'd already eaten so just tried their beer which comes in small 200ml glasses, quite tasty. Worth visiting just for the experience. Food looked a bit pricey but very German.

I am a big fan of not tipping. It is standard in North America and optional in Europe. Well they guy serving me may have been a bit more motivated if he was getting a tip. Oh well! Wait! Here comes my beer. Finally

Brauhaus Sion is the perfect picture of a German beer hall. From the dark wood paneling to the beautiful stained glass windows it's a beautiful place to sit and have a beer. Couple of things you need to be aware of..... beer service in this part of Germany is not like the giant steins of beer that you get in... More
