Stumbled upon this traditional bar / eatery on Friday night. It was very busy, the waiter forgot we had asked for a table to eat but it didn't matter too much as the bar lady kept us well stocked with kolch as we waited. Once we reminded the waiter once it was quieter we were immediately seated at a table.... More

Visited here with my boyfriend for our last dinner in cologne before heading to the airport. Was more of a convenient stop than anything else. Waiter was a tad gruff and spoke little to no English which didn't make us feel too welcome. I ordered the pork knuckle hoping for a recreation of the same meal else where and it... More

When I entered this restaurant it was empty. This scared me a bit, but after a while I realized that I was a little bit early for lunch time and very soon the place was invaded by people and most of them to my delight were locals! Food was exceptional and arrived at lightspeed. What dissapointed me was the time... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant, being very close to the city's main square always scares me a bit, but the food was surprisingly good and cheap, not to mention it arrived within 10 minutes after our order.
