Had read some good reviews so tried to visit on a Saturday night, there were no tables so we returned on the Sunday night and got a table easily. As a steak lover I can easily say this is one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. Had the fillet with blue cheese sauce and absolutely loved it... read more

Had the 300g fillet steak with blue cheese - well seasoned and cooked to perfection. Bread and dips also very nice. Will eat here again next time I'm in Cologne.

8 people. Totally crowded... We had to beg for the drinks and some food several times.... It took us three hours to eat mushrooms, salad and a plate of meat... The restaurant is totally polluted of kitchen smoke that our eyes were burning and red and the smell was too strong and unbearable, everybody uncomfortable feeling my colleagues and myself... More

Went a couple of times and couldn't get a table so booked 2 days in advance. When the steak finally arrived it was small and overcooked served with frozen French fries. I had a better steak at the hacienda up the street. Not impressed and no idea why it is fully booked every evening, mediocre at best

Great food, large group of us. Issues/argument with us being overcharged which was put right after an argument. Couple of fluent German speakers with us so before the waiter realised this, he'd already told a colleague in German not to worry as we were 'only tourists'. Have been here a number of times and always found the food good, but... More

You just have the find the sign above the door and take the steps downstears. The meat is cooked on a open fire grill and it is really tasty! You should try the read... More

Having read positive reviews of this restaurant I made an online reservation as it was my partners special birthday and we fancied a big chunk of meat! We arrived this evening and sat down in this empty restaurant (it's Sunday so why isn't it busy). We were sat right next to the kitchen and asked to move but we were... More

Restaurant close to Heumarkt downtown cologne. Meat is good, setting is not the best. Interior is old, cushions on the wooden benches are dirty and worn. Service was ok however not friendly nor warm. Overall experience is just ok.
