This restaurant was established in 1318! It's a great experience. The food was top notch, and the experience was perfect.

If you like Cologne beer you'll love the brewing company Sion! The staff is serving the local beer specialties in a very funny and friendly way and the beer served in the typical glasses is delicious! The menu is offering average standard pub food. Perfect as base for drinking beer!

This is a very nice brewhouse, the food is local and good, the brew is obligatory and the prices are fair (about 30 € for two people for the meal and 3 bears each). I got the impression that we were lucky to find a place to sit, so maybe plan ahead.

Went to this Brauerei before and the food was ok (not good, but ok). During my last visit the food was disgusting. The Meat was cold and hard, drowned in canned gravy. The cabbage had a stench and the dumplings were obviously not selfmade but convenience food. Every cook would habe been deeply ashamed to serve a dish like this.... More

We had dinner here before a concert at the Philharmonie (which is 5 minutes away). The restaurant is huge, split into several different rooms. Food was good and arrived very quickly (within 10 minutes of us ordering). Service was good, as was the atmosphere.

Went to this brauhaus with some friends last night. Should be used to the rudeness of the waiters (jacobs) by now but still it comes as an unpleasant surprise. The food serves are ridiculously big and always served with potatoes and are generally nice to eat. Very hard to find a vegetarian meal for a friend here. Germans love their... More

Nice fresh tasting Kolsch in a typical Cologne Brauhaus. I visited at Christmas and it was very busy but I squeezed in across from the bar. The Barman kept an eye on my and as soon as my glass was nearly empty he had a fresh one poured. Excellent service and nice beer delivered from a large barrel on the... More

We stopped by their patio for some quick kolsch beers and decided to dine here after having a few drinks. The food was poor and dry, silverware dirty and server kept passing us by. It's best to sit outside and just drink. We know for next time.

Best Haxen I have ever had! Very busy traditional Brauhaus. Again, they do not take any kind of card payment, only cash. I really don't know how they manage to get the pork crackling so perfect, that with the sauerkraut and Kolsch... yum yum! Very reasonably priced.

Brahaus are always full, but we did get a table from a friendly waiter, who kept our kolsch fresh. For a large brauhaus, the servide from this waiter is incredible. worth a visit.
