Judging by the crowds when we walked up, this must be the most popular restaurant in Cologne--and with good reason! My husband and I waited twenty minutes or so before nabbing an outdoor table which we shared with some other guests. The waiter was very attentive and kept the Kölsch flowing. We had wiener schnitzel, pork schnitzel with red pepper... More

This place is worth it for the experience but the food is not great. It is definitely a case of quantity over quality. I found the food really greasy, but the sauce was nice. The place was absolutely rammed packed, but that added to the experience, the service was great, and the atmosphere was fantastic, but the food wasn't great.... More

Food was amazing, make sure you go feeling hungry, as the portions are very generous. The staff were also very friendly and the service was great.

It was UEFA FRA vs ISL that evening, luckily we went there 2 hours earlier and manage to find a seat just by waiting at the bar for 10 minutes while enjoying our beer. The schnitzel comes with a green salad and fries. Crispy schnitzel is delicious and staffs are friendly.

Decided to try this as a last minute attempt when looking for somewhere to have tea, didn't look much on the outside, but it was FANTASTIC!!!!! Quite cramped and you have to be prepared to share tables... The portions were epic (so I'm glad we didn't opt for a starter), but they were so tasty, you just had to finish... More

Had the veal schnitzel and potatoes. ..potatoes very tasty..we received our food really quickly...they give you a lovely salad to accompany your food. When we went we were given a table immediately so didn't have to wait as per other reviews. Enjoyed food with some refreshing kolsch beer.

Nowhere else you can get better Schnitzel. This traditional rustic restaurant offers the best Schnitzel and sauces in the region. The restaurant's name is based on the former owner - Paula "Oma" Kleinmann. When she died we locals were afraid that the restaurant will be replaced by a new, modern resstaurant. Thank God the successors decided to continue the business... More

The schnitzels are giant and nicely done. The service was good and friendly. We couldn't finish and took a doggy bag back to hotel. The place is very busy. We were lucky to find a table.

This place is for anyone who loves schnitzel. And the huge portion is suitable for those with a large appetite, but you can also get a half size portion if it's too much. They offer nice options of sauces, from the typical German sauces to curry and other flavours. I had the green pepper sauce, which was very nice and... More
