Ordered a pork schnitzel with kolsch. Good place, good people and good food. When I visited there was a lot of rush but the staff was patient and served me well.

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

We ordered their famous schnitzels and beer. The portions were huge, sadly, ii couldn't finish it. The place has such an old school charm. Locals, university kids and tourists all come here for their deliciious food.

Not to be missed if you are looking for an authentic and wonderful dinner at christmastime. My husband and I had the Wiener Schnitzel and beers and enjoyed an authentic German experience.

We ate here with our friends one evening since it was so highly rated by Tripadvisor. We all had the schnitzel (veal) and it was wonderful! We asked the hotel to make reservations but the restaurant said they were full. We took a chance and walked about 35 minutes (asking directions many times from different people) and finally arrived. Fortunately... More

This is local German food (quantity & quality) that you shouldn't miss while being in Cologne. We come here every year with friends in early/mid December to eat "oven roasted duck with blue cabbage and potato dumplings". If you like this kind of local dish you will see that this is simply the best recipe you've ever (!) had. They... More

Lovely atmosphere inside, don't let the outside put you off, the area could look a little shady to some. We got there just before 5pm on Friday and a few people were already queuing. Inside its decorated nicely, tavern looking in a nice way. The staff were friendly and fun. Its not very big and was already full and as... More

After a short wait we were seated and the staff were incredible friendly and helpful. The portions are enough to fill the hungriest traveller. You won't be disappointed. This is a real must. PS it is... More

This place arguably has the largest, plate filling Schnitzel in Cologne, and not just because they have been smashed to a 5 Millimeter thin layer of meet. You WILL be stuffed - the place is meet-lovers delight. In addition, though the pub is frequented by locals and breathes local Cologne atmosphere! Make sure you have a reservation as it gets...

Oma Kleinmann is for Wiener Schnitzel what Lommerzheim is for cutlets: top notch. Oma Kleinmann's location--in the student quarter, makes it easy to drop by a number of other places nearby. Excellent food and great atmosphere.
