Went with the boyfriend last night, we didn't make a reservation but we managed to get a table, place started getting full after we arrived. I told him we should share one snizel but he didn't listen, obviously ;) he finished, i couldnt!! The staff was super nice, we got our massive snizel real fast, tastes great!

Top rated on Tripadvisor, this cosy restaurant did not disappoint!! Make sure to book this well in advance as it's practically busy all evening! The portions are massive and the drinks are great - MUST VISIT!

This is one of those places where you're thrown back into how restaurants used to look, feel and taste. The most amazing schnitzels which are literally as big (or bigger) as your head. Note that they only accept cash, as a business traveler that was actually quite inconvenient. Other than that an amazing dinner and evening!

Holy moly, schnitzel here is GIGANTIC. They don't even have plates that fit the amount of meat given to you. I split my jagerschnitzel with another person and it was more than enough. Got spatzle as a side and it was delicious with the mushroom gravy the schnitzel comes with. We got there early and waited before they opened. With... More

Advice: Make a reservation if you can. We visited on a busy sunday evening at around 6pm. The restaurant/bar was very busy and we had to add our name to the list. We waited around 35 minutes but glad we did! The food is outstanding and is a place to get the biggest schnitzel you have ever seen. The food... More

After getting to Köln, we decided we wanted to eat at the number 1 German restaurant in the city. This did not let us down! The schnitzel was HUGE and atmosphere was delightful. The place was crowded and when we arrived we were welcomed with beer to wait for a table to arrive. After about 30 minutes we sat at... More

Nearly everybody in Cologne knows "Oma Kleinmann´s Restauant". If you want to get typical "German Schnitzel", you have to go to this restaurant. The schnitzels are very large and tasty. The staff is very friendly. Not everybody may like the serviceroom. It is not a quiet romantic "candlelight restaurant" and that it´s not, what it wants to be. It´s full... More

Dear Mareen, we are very sorry that you are so dissatisfied with us! I can not remember forgetting a guest, so when did you visit us? But it is true, sometimes at the weekend the waitingtime can be longer, but normaly a lot less then 2 hours. We are very sorry, that you did not get a seat! Maureen Wolf More

A bit far from the Central train station but it was worthy. The schnitzel can be small or big, and both of them are big imho. They serve nice Kölsch beer and also genuine German wine. Also there is a special hot souce which is quite spicy. Otherwise it was a small place. We had to wait for a 50mins... More
