Brauhaus Sion is definitely a must go restaurant, specially during Carnival season, when they have lots of people drinking and singing german traditional songs. Food is also very good.

Came here with some friends for lunch. It's a beehive of activity .. Such a shame about the surly rude staff. They don't talk .. They don't listen ..they don't smile .. They are just grumpy..this could be one of the best "fun places" in Cologne.. But first lose the staff.. Enjoy the traditional German food fare " it's good"..... More

We came across this place quite by accident. We only had drinks, but the waiters were very attentive. They spoke English, which was a big help! When you go through the door the place opens up like a huge tardis, with fancy dress costumes in glass cabinets and lots of photos. It looks like they might do medieval type banquet... More

Had a pleasant meal in the very busy Sion brewery and made the most of the very decent Kolsh beer! Real atmosphere to the place with really good service from our Kobe (waiter.) Not the place for a quiet meal but we enjoyed the buzz and the tasty Hummel und erde.

Our group of 6 had no trouble walking right in on a Sunday evening at Sion. It's in a great location, near the Dom and the many Christmas Markets in the Altstadt, which for us, was a great place to warm up while we filled ourselves with great food. Everyone in our group devoured the hearty plates. The interior was... More

Not for the faint hearted. Large portions of excellent North European food at very good prices. Limited vegetarian options. The signature dish is probably the knuckle of pork which I highly recommend at least once in your life. Very busy Fridays and Saturdays so be prepared to wait (reservations for large parties only). Much quieter on Sunday and through the... More

Beer in Cologne is done differently compared to other parts of Germany. A crane lifts a new barrel on to a counter where beers are poured in to 200 ml glasses. Hardworking waiters load up a wire basket with beers and then distribute them to the tables they are responsible for. If your glass is empty it will be replaced... More

I have been to Cologne 3 times and each time have eaten here. Maybe its why Cologne is one of my favorite places. It is very relaxing and a nice place to eat. They even have a sausage that is overs a foot long. It is amazing. I understand that it is made in house but unfornately don't share the... More
