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

just been there. The food was rubbish and worse the staff were so rude. Didn't give us the time of day. When it came to asking for the bill the waiters all just stayed bat the bar drinking beer. TERRIBLE.

Stopped in on our river cruise beer tour for dinner and drinks. The portions were huge and very good. The Kolsch is served in the small glasses to help keep it cold. They fill it up quickly. The beer flan was a good desert to have. The pork knuckle/shank was huge and very good.

A favorite with locals, this beer house is one place to add to your must visit list. Its discreet location and less than picturesque building keeps tourists away and prices low. Service is very warm, the atmosphere is festive, and food and beer are excellent. Dishes serve two, so share one appetizer and one main course, followed by draft beer... More

My mixture of German and English was welcomed as I tried to ask about the very antiquated feel that this place offered, the staff were pleasant, although getting a vodka lemonade proved a bit difficult. The food was what you'd expect, traditional German meaty foods. No matter what you'll order, it WILL fill you. For a very reasonable price. This... More
