We first took a table close to the entrance but there were Germans drinking and speaking almost screaming close to us, we then asked to change our table. After a while we ordered ribs (my partner) and steak (me), the food was served quite fast. My boyfriend's meal was ok according to him, but then when I tried mine I... More

Just went in there today for lunch and ordered self serve salad bar. When I was half way serving my salad a fury mouse came onto the salad bar to help himself! I left my plate and told the waitress and walked out disgusted! Thank goodness I saw it on time.

This is a real steakhouse! Location is easy to find and central, the restaurant is big and it has simple and characteristic furniture. Meals are fantastic, especially the soups and the meat. Moreover, it is not expensive and staff is kind. Great place!

Good service, great steak, nice atmosphere. Been there a few times over the years. Love it!!!! Great range of meaty meals. Very central. Reasonable prices - Cologne has become more expensive in the last couple of years.

Thought this would be quick and easy deal. Staff not helpful or friendly. Watch out for the older lady with glasses. Not pleasant at all. Rumpsteak 180 gm well done, surprisingly tasted good. Overall, a not so pleasant visit. Good for families with picky children.

This place looks like a typical chain restaurant and is situated right next to the cathedral. The service was OK, but the ribs were tough and needed a lot of effort to get the meat off the bones. My partner had a salmon dish which was a better choice. As with most chains, this is not the place for fine... More

Very clean place to eat. For couples or familys. Varied menu for all tastes. Nice steak but they were a little bit pricey for what you actually get.

We had to ask for menu, and ask again to order, and after 50 minutes we got our dishes. We ordered Giant burger, it was worth the wait. Perfect. We ate it all up, then paid the bill. Just before leaving I saw a mouse running around under the table...
