This is certainly a local restaurant which keeps up a certain appearance in terms of local food (meat) and people. We were there close to Rosenmontag so several dressed up people made the atmosphere. But also the waiters do a grumpy act and continuously serve Kölsch beer (do not too pushy). Cash money is highly prefered. The food is local... More

Actually - the 2nd best beer! After getting stuck in the revolving door I considered that maybe I shouldn't have another beer. So glad I did. This little be house makes the second best beer we tried today. Food looked good. Plenty of atmosphere and lots of parties celebrating carnival.

A traditional Cologne brewery, with lots of local customers, great laid back staff and friendly service, authentic German food. What I liked about it is that you can go for drinks or for a meal, it is easy going.

I would NEVER recommend this place especially for dinner. Their servers are more than rude if they realize that you are foreigner. I went there with my friends, but after their weird and unacceptable behaviors, we have finished our dinner and beers in 30 minutes to leave this place as soon as possible. With all, it was one of the... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we were pleased that w went there - in fact we ate there twice out of three nights. We loved the way the beer was served - never had to wait for a refill. The food was very good - I believe that it is typical brewhouse fare. The style of the... More

The food was ok. It was good but nothing special. It's a brauhaus but i expected a bit More. The service is completely Rude. If you leave food in your plate they ask who has left it and Tell them to eat it all. We had to wait 30 minutes for the bill. 30minutes! I must say that the area... More

As one of Cologne's traditional breweries the Malzmühle is one of the very popular one's by locals. It is located directly at the Heumarkt opposite of the square on the other side of the tram tracks. The Beer is called Mühlen Kölsch which is very smooth. When sitting in any brewery in cologne you will be handed a 0,2 l... More

We have visited the Xmas markets here twice. Both times we tried to eat in here. Both times it was rammed out. We finally managed it. So glad we did. It is only a two minute walk from the Christmas market, well lit up and in a main road. The food here is lovely. Well worth waiting for. Hubby had... More
