“Not the best Maredo, but fine”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

I love Maredo, I visit their restaurants whenever possible. But this one lacks something. It was busy and the staff were a bit pushed, but that's not really a decent excuse for average food.

We ordered the platter to share (I forget the name) and it was plenty big enough for our appetites. Although we asked for rare (translated as 'English'...which surprised me) the meats definitely were not cooked this way - more medium in my opinion - but they were tasty nonetheless.

The salad bar was OK, but there were a few things empty or missing so we passed. Drinks-wise, the house red there is one of my favourites and I happily drained a carafe without assistance as it was as good as ever.

Our waitress was Syrian, and was interesting. She was chatty and helpful and gave us time to think and talk even though she was rushed.

All in all, an average but still tasty and enjoyable dinner.

“Worst Maredo ever”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Maredo as a very good brand and having good food this was a poor experience of atmosphere and food. Never eat there any soup it was like a gravy sauce the Gulaschsuppe and the starters we had didn't taste well. Fortunately we didn't have ordered any mainmeal like meat or so.

“not recommended, totally disaster for 14 guest during trade show”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

even though we had reserved the table there were not enough places to sit for our group. white wine arrived warm. Some of us didn't have the appetizers whilst the others got the main after 1,5 hours!!!!! unbelievable! and then the quality: meat should not arrive at the table like this, the waiter agreed, but then it took another 40 min for the next steak. It was the worst business meal I every experienced and if it would have been with a customer I guess we would have lost the deal. not even a free dessert or drink makes up for all this. on top of it it is not cheap either. a no go.

“Great food, good choices and value.”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

This restaurant is not 'typically' German but it does do what you expect of a restaurant, good choice if food from Wiener Schnitzel to steak to chicken and salads plus a salad bar with really fresh produce.
The decor is clean and bright, the service good, there is frequently a short queue at the door but it clears quickly due to the rapid turn-round and the number of covers.

“Nice atmosphere”
Reviewed December 7, 2013 via mobile

We arrived in Koln 4 hours late due to train cancellation and after checking in to our apartment went to one of the nearest restaurants. It was a busy Friday evening but we were given a table for two quickly. Had mixed starter, bit heavy on potato wedges and mushrooms but pleasant. Mains of lamb fillet and ribeye excellent, especiAlly with the salad buffet option. Only problem was they were brought to table before we had finished the starter. Despite this the meat was excellent quality and cooked to a good medium for our tastes. Beer a bit expensive but carafe wine good value.
Service very friendly and attentive. Would visit again but not ready to give 4* yet.
