Only it wasn't ..... Apparently at 11.55 am no coffee or tea available just cold drinks!!! So, opted for a diet coke with dirty glass. Not the best first impression of cologne.

Classic German Brauhaus which is a good thing! Trying to get a seat can be a challenge as they are busy with both locals and tour groups. The back of the restaurant is huge, and was only half full when we arrived, but were told it is only for those with reservations. Fortunately we were offered a table if we... More

Looking for that traditional feel? How about a mixed meat plate (steak, wurst, bacon) on top of fried potato slices? Just add in the constant willingness to provide small beers that are cold and ready and this oldest brewery in Cologne is the place to be.

Excellent food and service. The meat was very well prepared and the staff very attentive. It was very busy when we arrived at 7pm I would recommend you getting there early.

Recommeded by a kind policeman in the area we went to have a beer at the outdoors section of this typical German restaurant. Fine and pleasant ambience. Nice relaxing German style serving, reliable, well known and appreciated place. will go next time.

The restaurant is mainly a typical bier house where you can enjoy the local food also. If you like to taste local cuisines I suggest to do it prior to drinking as you would forget to eat while having the traditional bier.

Köln has many popular Brauhauses and Sion is one of these. Sion offers plenty of German tradition--be prepared to experience lots of the city's signature Kölsch bier and great food.

I had Jägerschnitzel and a bunch of Kölsch. I can't say it's a bad place or you can't eat the food, but my issue is that there are quite a number much better places around, where food is tastier and Kölsch is better.

Beer is the Cologne Kolsch in .2 litre glasses but service is super efficient so no wait. Lunch I had the 'caviar' which is actually black pudding and onion - and is a lot nicer than it may sound!
