You would not come here if you would not know the place. The place dates from 1882 and the main room has not been renovated since. The excellent beer comes from wooden barrels and is automatically refilled at your table unless you put a coaster on your glass. The menu is German pub food and tastes great. The people vary... More

I was in town on business, but managed to grab a reservation (which was very lucky). We got there at opening on the dot, and the line outside already very long. Basically if you don't have a reservation its a bit of a free-for-all "land grab", and with so many waiting, the place fills up immediately. Not to mention, the... More

Casual local pub atmosphere that is very affordable. Limited menu of local German food, however the Schweine,Kotelett (Pork Chop) is huge and tasty. They only serve Koln Gaffel beer like most restaurants in Cologne.

We walked here after touring Cologne and the famous cathedral.. It's on the so-called "wrong side" of the Rhine River which was an added plus as there weren't droves of tourists taking up space... The place opened for dinner 4:30p (on the Saturday we went) and it was packed wall-to-wall by 5pm (mostly full of locals so you KNOW it... More

If the statt appear to be rude or not acknowledging your - that is your way of seeing it. The are very busy serving everyone and also their way of approaching you, making jokes and being down to earth is simply the way how people from Köln talk and act. I have come here several times before, this time with... More

Very cultural pub with traditional Germany food. We had German Sausage and pork joint, it came with a massive portion. The beer is unlimited re-filled which is even better. Great place to go. You will need to be there early to avoid long waiting time

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
