“We were not steered wrong... A great local find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012 via mobile

Wonderful little restaurant in a fun little neighborhood... Inside is cutely decorated and outside offers blankets to keep you warm while you dine. Wonderful local foods and fresh ingredients make nice blends within the dishes... Will go back when next in the area.
Reasonably priced as my friend and I both got an entre, large bottled water, beer and wine for €37 total...

They also spoke good English and gave good food recommendations!

“Definitely worth a visit when in Cologne”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2011

Feynsinn was recommeded to me by a staff member of the hotel I was staying in last week whilst on a business trip and it was definitely worth the taxi ride there. The restaurant is located in an artsy and cool part of the city near the university with lots of good bars around.

We got a seat straight away near the bar. The atmosphere was relaxed and the staff were friendly and helpful.. The menu is only in German but our waiter was more than happy to translate for us. I ordered pumpkin ravioli and my Italian colleague ordered the crab and shrimp spaghetti and neither meal disappointed. The food was fresh and delicious and the bill came to under €35 with drink included. All in all a good experience and I would return the next time I'm in Cologne.

Pay a visit!

“Lovely Café at lovely place in artsy Cologne”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2010

The Feynsinn is the perfect café for all occasions, rain (big windows and cozy atmosphere) & sunshine (some outside seating facing the beautiful Rathenauplatz), little thirst (good coffee and impressive whiskey collection) & bigger hunger (try the Maultaschen salad or the cakes). The place is frequented by a nice and easy going crowd, and is rarely empty. It is within a short walk from the university, Zülpicher Straße, the synagogue and the lovely Belgian quarter, with many more trendy bars and cafés and good antique shops.

“Orders took ages, food was minimal”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2010

Despite all the recommendations in the various guides, this place is to be avoided. They were heavily understaffed, which meant that it took ages for them to get us breakfast (which was a yogurt and a croissant!). It was furthermore expensive for what it was, as the food was extremely minimal.
