“Real and luring food place in Cologne's Rudolf Platz.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

The Spitz is à Resto located on Pfeilstrasse 31-35 in Cologne's trendy area half a block from Rudolf Platz. It comfortably stretches from one end to the other of a small block and it has at its center a small interesting courtyard. The architecture, furniture,!and decor are reminiscent of the 40s and early 50s. The food is interesting and include a variety of local German cuisine dishes complemented with good German wines, beers as well other kinds of alcohol. The service is excellent and unpretentious. The menu will be interesting for those who want to explore German dishes ranging from the famous Sauerkraut to the vegetarian Flammkuchen. I found the later to be a German version of Pizza made with a thin crust and   champignons, zucchini, tomatoes and leek. Only on Fridays, the special is Backfisch (fish for frying) in beer and accompanied with a potato, cucumber and remoulade salad, typical of Eastern German called Kartoffel Gurkensalat und Remoulade. I do not think Spitz will disappoint, on the contrary, its food, wonderful ambience, typical food and good drinks coupled with cordial service   will add positive to the memory of Cologne.

“Delicious restaurant, charming staff: Spitz ist absoluter Spitze!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2012

After a day of shopping we decided to have dinner at Spitz. Reading the menu that mentions classics like Wiener Schnitzel, Tafelspitz and Kaiserschmarrn we were convinced that we should eat here instead of elsewhere, and we proved to be right! Service was charming and efficient, and the food was generous and tasty. Definitely a place to return to!

“Authentic, delicious and not too pricey!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2011

We visited Cologne over christmas and wanted some German cuisine, we were recommended Spitz by our hotel and so decided to give it a look. The building and layout was much like any restaurant and as we were on a budget we were a bit worried about price, we needn't have been!!
The staff were friendly and polite, when ordering, they gave great advice on what to have, i recommend the veal schnitzel with fried parsley and cranberry coulis..... AMAZING! My partner had a tradiional sausage dish and he too was very impressed. The portion sizes were good and i left feeling full. We also had about 2 alcoholic drinks each whilst we were there and the bill came to only 35 euros! Given other places in this city we were really impressed at the price.
Needless to say, next time i am in Cologne, i will be going back hre for some traditional and tasty german cuisine.
