“Real nice atmosphere and good food. Close to Marriott”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

This is a good restaurant to visit if you are staying at the Marriott. Opposite direction to the city centre but only a couple of minutes away. Good food (perhaps some it was a bit too salty and their focus is definitely the meat) and service.Well priced and very popular (we went on a Monday and it was full).

“Nice Local Restaurant - Four blocks from Marriott hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

Casual local pub atmosphere, Great menu of local German food. Really good specials. They only tale Euros, no Credit Cards. Only serve Koln Gaffel beer like most restaurants in Cologne.

“Great German pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014

We found this place around the corner from the Domstern where we were staying. Really enjoyed a couple of beers with classic German grub - nothing fancy or gourmet, just good food and drink at a good price. Would definitely go back!

“Great local spot and delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

This place was recommended by our hotel, the Marriott, which was a short walk. We went two nights in a row. The first night we were lucky because it was Tuesday and they do fresh potato pancakes on Tuesday only. There was no where to sit as it a tiny place but you can sit with strangers which we did and and had a great conversation with a local. My hubby had the potato pancakes with applesauce and I had the goulash. Delicious!

The next night we went back and hubby had Wiener schnitzel and I had sautéed mushrooms with garlic sour cream. So awesome. Why can't I get this in Texas? Yummy!

Great local place. I love this type of tiny place where you can experience the neighborhood and not the tourist traps.

“A proper German bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

We stayed at the Domstern and this friendly bar us just round the corner. Frequented by locals which is a good sign. Excellent beer and basic but good quality food and very good price. We really liked the atmosphere of this bar away from the tacky central bars. Would recommend
