Having been highly recommended to visit this place by a good friend and read all the reviews we were sadly disappointed. Went last Tuesday night and the place was closed. We were not sure if closed down or just closed for the night. We didn't give up and tried again the next night. The bar was open with all tables... More

Cult pub in Cologne. The biggest pork chops you will have ever seen. Good atmosphere, friendly service, simple but good food and great beer. What more do you want? Tip: reserve a table in the cellar.

It's worth a stroll down a quiet street to find this place. From the outside it is possible to hear a humming sound coming from within a building with dimly lit windows; the second you walk inside it's absolutely buzzing. We were immediately handed beers from random strangers at the bar, setting the tone for the evening. We didn't eat... More

Head south of the river and find this amazing bar/restaurant. We got there late afternoon on a Saturday and it was absolutely packed. Bar upstairs and restaurant downstairs. The atmosphoere was amazing and food coming out looked awesome. It was so busy we had to stand near kitchen but even there, the beers kept coming. Would highly recommend that you... More

We were a little put off by the fact that they seat random people at your table (i.e. you are sitting at a table with your spouse when another couple, unknown to you, enters the restaurant and gets seated at your table). We weren't expecting this but eventually warmed up to the idea since the couple who sat with us... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my meal here. Came here a couple of months ago. Great food and wine though in my opinion a little over priced. Service was great, staff were knowledgeable but not pretentious.

Had lunch here & was very enjoyable. Ate double pork chop and fries really crispy outside and superbly tender inside and well seasoned, washed down with kolsch. Nice atmosphere too. Was worth the effort to get there.

If you're up for a real locals experience, hit this place. Located on the wrong side of the river, in a slightly shady backstreet & serving slightly shady guests, this place was super fun. Order the pork cutlet with fried onions and French fries: positively the largest portion of dead animal I've ever been served...plus very tasty and good value... More

I've been visiting Lommi 2 to 3 times per year since 1998 and have never been disappointed with the Halskotelette mit Zwiebeln. Size has decreased though since re-opening. I was introduced to/in Lommi by a Kölner friend and gladly remember the days when Lommi himself was serving: no way anyone can copy that. Pfäffgen Brewery and the Lommi-committee did an... More

Great decision to go a bit further a field, away from the market lights, and find this gem. It felt down to earth and rustic. Loud chatter, friendly and sharp staff- beer after beer - my partner loved the pork chop. Loved that when we got there we waited at a small table by the beer barrels asked for a... More
