OMG! Here you can buy the sausages by meters! Good combination of potatoes and salad with good meat quality! Rude German style! Really nice :)

This place had good food, decent service, best Kolsch in Koln, but the toilets were the cleanest anywhere in Europe! Would buy a beer here just to use the WC.

I stopped in at this brauhaus to grab a couple cold ones with two mates from the hostel, an Austrian and a Canadian. We agreed the Sion Kolsch was a fine, if undistinguished, beer, but wondered why it was served in .21 liter glasses. We had no problem with this, and the bartender was quick with the next kolsch, but... More

Visited for a late lunch and got a table outside. It took a while to get some attention but since there was only one waiter working our section we didn't mind as he was clearly very busy. When we did catch him he was friendly but a bit stressed. I've had the jägerschnitzel and my partner had a wurst with... More

Just loved the idea of beer just being brought to you without having to order them! Amount of beer is recorded as a tally on your beermat. Had some lovely curry wurst as we were in a hurry but the other dishes looked absolutely delicious especially some huge pork dish which looked like a roast pork joint for one. Beer... More

Two of us ate here for lunch. Staff quite unfriendly. We ordered lunch special - thought it came with soup and salad, but as I didn't speak German was not sure. Lunch arrived with no starter, so I presumed I had misread the menu. However, on getting the menu translated later at the Hotel, it became clear we were supposed... More

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
