We had the pork chops - which are not like American pork chops at all. They were juicy and amazing. With great potato salad or fries. The beer was amazing and the service was great. Too bad we only had one meal in Koln....I would have gone again! 40 euros for two huge meals, and 10 beers!

Very tradicional german restaurant, different from the other "typical" german restaurants. Staff is very friendly and food is amazing.

Wonderful place. Packed out. The Kotelletten are to die for. Cooked for an hour and a quarter and then finished in a pan to get the breadcrumb coating crispy. A must-go place.

If you like Pork and Beer, this is heaven. The reviews don't lie! We turned up an hour after opening on a Thursday night and the place was RAMMED wall to wall. We had to wait an hour maybe for a table (oh no, more drinks ;) ) and during this time got chatting to a few dutch lads on... More

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.
