The restaurant is close to the Dome and the Rhine in the old city. The wurst choices are delicious and the Kolsch to accompany makes a lovely lunch that will last until a late dinner.

Even if the food was O K the service was not good. Missing to bring food to one of us. The food was heavy but good quality.

Great value for money even with the recent poor economic situation and struggling exchange rates in Britain. Swift service, with your glass always replenished with kölsch. Food brilliant and authentically German, would definitely recommend. Setting and interior also amazing.

Delicious German food! Get the braut in the heading picture with the fried potatoes...It was delicious! Indoor and outdoor patio seating. Great local beer and there were musicians singing outside also. Moderate pricing. We walked about 6 blks there from the Cologne cathedral.
