Having been enjoying (for the best part) the German/Bavarian cuisine, we all decided to eat something different and found Farmers whilst wandering around admiring the painted faces of the German football fans - Germany were playing in the World Cup!! Whilst slightly resembling a Harvester restaurant with a help-yourself salad bar, and being extremely quiet, we nevertheless had a really... More

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

Was so looking forward to this meal with my family. Food looked Ok. All the same cut though. No visible difference between rib eye or rum etc. Sweet corn turned up late. Then the uninvited guests started to make their appearance. Counted 4 at one point. All well established and braisen. 2 mice just sat having a wash watching us.... More

Our evening was spoiled by the mice that crawled on the wall around the salad bar, on seats and the floor. The staff did not seem concerned by or willing to do anything about the vermin that shared the restaurant with their customers. When I spoke to the manager he acknowledged the mice but did not offer any apology. I... More

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.

Eventually took our drinks and food menu together and tried to discuss our order with us in German, my husband asked her what accompaniments came with his steak but she was... More
