Excellent dinner. Simple yet very tasty dishes! Friendly and dynamic staff, warm atmosphere and old school decoration.

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

We enjoyed out first night here so much we went back a second time, on the last night of our four night stay in Cologne. Loud and boisterous with huge quantities of tasty food and seemingly never ending Kolsch beers delivered to our table by our burly waiter. The trademark 'pigs knuckle' was enough to feed a family of four.,... More

An authentic Cologne style restaurant not far off the river. It's busy, it's loud (in a good way), and it's fun. In typical Köln style a long, small of klösch is set down in front of you from the round handled tray - this is how it's done in Cologne! I had a delicious hearty potato soup and then a... More
