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

We had a great night out here enjoying the passion of Kölsch beer and german cuisine. The atmosphere was loud and authentic. This place has been enjoyed by many dignitaries and is a staple in Cologne.

Went here with some friends for dinner. The place was packed, so a visit in the weekends demands a reservation. The food is typical German pub food (Cologne style) and tastes great! The local beer and schnapps is also very good. If you want genuine Cologne "Kneipe" atmosphere this is a place to visit.

Great Kolsch and enthusiastic waiting staff. Food is hearty and as you would expect in a German Brewery. They have a more trendy bar just opened which stays open a bit later just in case.

Great food and the atmosphere was wonderful! Make sure you get a reservation or go early on weekends! I got the grilled pig knuckle and I am pretty sure it would feed my whole family. You won't go home hungry.

This place is a little bit of a walk South of the Old town area. I had read they had one of the better Kolsch's in Cologne. I tried about three Kolsch's. Although I am not a fan of this type of beer, I would say this was the best of the three - not quite as bitter as the... More
