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!

Nice German atmosphere for a casual lunch. Had the usual wiener and sauerkraut lunch with a coke. Hubs had a sandwich with a couple of different German beers.

Our old guidebook recommended this Brauhaus. We were glad we went there. The service was excellent and the 200ml Kolsch glasses kept coming. We tried the Koln Kaviar knowing it was black pudding. It was good but I think I prefer black pudding hot! I had kidneys as my main course which were very good as was my husband's metre... More

Traditional food, the knuckles were amazing. They have their own brewery and serve in a small glasses so the beer can be fresh.

We randomly selected Brauhaus Sion while walking through the streets of Cologne. Traditional German cuisine and plenty of their Kölsch style beer made for an excellent outdoor lunch on a nice fall day. The "Butcher's plate" had a delicious sampling of close to every kind of German sausage on a bed of sauerkraut and fries. It doesn't get more German... More

Wanted to experience a traditional Koln brauhaus and this didn't disappoint. Very busy, hectic place with a good mix of locals and tourists. Was a bit bewildering at first but after observing what others were doing soon grasped how things worked. One waiter serves a few tables, in between taking food orders and serving and clearing he comes round with... More
