We were looking for a decent place to eat because we didn't know much about Cologne. It was easy to find because of the location. Nice food but the service was not as good as the meals IMO. I'd recommend if you want to have a casual and relaxing meal while looking at people passingby.

My husband and I decided to go to this restaurant since it looked super busy and we were in the mood for some German food. We sat down, debated a while about our choices, talked a bit, and realized that we had been waiting already for about 10 mins and no one had come to even take our drink order... More

Fast Tourist food! The food was barely average, the service was ok. Save your money, make a reservation and go next door to the Haxenhaus

Although my meal was good, my partners pork knuckle wasn't great & the 'mushed potato' (as per menu) tasted unlike any freshly prepared potato I have ever experienced (we both tried it). I am of the strong opinion that this was therefore packet mix (and if it wasn't, why would you prepare potato to taste this way?) Not impressed, certainly... More

We were hopeful of this restaurant as it looks cozy and serves both German and Italian cuisine. However, staff was really rude, both food and drinks were more expensive compared to every other similar restaurant/bar of this in Cologne, and the pizza's we ordered were basically salty cheese breads with some canned vegetables on them. Even though we were rushing... More

Reasonable food, reasonable wine/beer. Good atmosphear, reasonable value for money. If you are stuck for somewhere to eat in Cologne you could do much worse, but there are at least 3 excellent resteraunts within a 10 minute walk.

This placed definitely is style over substance. It looks super cute and is in a great location, but just doesn't live up to what you're hoping for. We went for dinner on a Saturday night while visiting Cologne and had a very mediocre meal. I ate basically just mushrooms for dinner. They didn't give us any water, despite us asking... More

Along the river it is a good choice for a dinner in German style with strong Italian influence. Good quality of the products and well cooked. Attention also for the presentation of the dishes despite the touristic nature of the place. Quick and efficient service with friendly waiters. Price, normal. Recommended.
