I had a roast beef. A very good one. Served with fried potatoes. The price was quite fair and definitely not as high as one might expect in a place so near to the Cathedral, the major tourist attraction in Cologne. German waiters can often be gruff and even rude (the worst thing about German restaurants), but we got a... More

Had a very quick visit here. Was pressed for time. Good beer, quick service. Didn't eat anything. Fairly large place. Amongst the more popular brew houses. If beer is your thing, then this is a must visit. It is conveniently located opp the dome. So after climbing the stairs, replenish your carb store with some kolsch.

We stayed two nights in Cologne and visited here both nights, something we have never done on a holiday before, but the food and beer were so good we didn't see any point going anywhere else. The place was crowded on Friday night when we went, but we were able to get a table. They will place a second couple... More

This large bar/restaurant was rammed with people when we arrived on a Thursday night, a great atmosphere but had the staff running off their feet: service was therefore brisk as they had little time to stand and chat and help tourists navigate their menu. English subtitles were therefore very welcome. The food was typical and the beer was local -... More

This was my second time here...I already liked the place since the first visit, however I was quite disappointed from the service and general attitude towards customers. I was happy to see that the food remained at high quality levels while the service had been considerably improved. I believe this place is a MUST if you visit Cologne. The restaurant... More

Typical Brauhaus! As soon as you enter you get your first beer and they don't stop until you say so. The beers are tasty, the food is okay. The place comes alive because of the crowds. It really is a busy spot!

Had to find somewhere to watch soccer, and this place was across the street from the Dom, and just down the block from my hotel. The long tables were intimidating when I first walked in, but there are also tables for 2 or 4 persons. I had the most amazing meal of a huge boneless porkchop in a brown sauce,... More

I actually didnt expect to much from this place, so I was a bit surprised as we went there for Dinner a few weeks ago. The venue is huge and nicely decorated with typical German stuffs. The guy who waited us is service oriented and treated the guest fair n nicely. The Dishes we ordered arrived quite fast and lovingly... More
