Not only was it the best pork I have ever had, it was also the best potato salad. The menu is brief, but any other offerings would be redundant next to their pork cutlet. You have to pity vegetarians after visiting an establishment like Lommerzheim. The place is crowded, loud and beery. Highly recommended.

We were greeted with a great smile and although we had to wait for about an half an hour for a table, it was well worth the wait - the beers kept on coming and the pork cutlet was a fantastic. A great German experience. Excellent value for money.

As some of the other reviewers have said, you would never just walk by and go in. Its a bit tricky to find but is well worth it. It is a very German experience, beer (from a wood barrel) plus a very limited menu of pork and sausages (chicken 1 day a week). The pork cutlet was amazing and also... More

Great local place for some cold beer and authentic food. Pork cutlet is a winner every time. Not really a place for our vegetarian friends, but if you like beer, meat, and good times.....this is it. Get there early and be prepared to share a table with some locals, but definitely get there.

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
