We have been here a few times now and thoroughly enjoyed it every time!
The steaks are outstanding, as are the baked potatoes.
Everything we have tried here has been very impressive, from starters to desserts.

Service is very good, you may even get a complimentary grappa at the end of your meal.

It's not the cheapest by any means, but you get what you pay for!

If you're in Cologne and looking for a good steak, try this place... definitely!

Being that we only live about a 10 minute walk from El Chango, we have eaten here a number of times. Every time we have been here the food has been outstanding, absolutely the best steaks we've ever had! I am originally from Canada so am used to eating Alberta beef, some of the best beef in the world and the meat served at El Chango is right up there! We do recommend making a reservation as they can get quite busy. One of our favorite restaurants in Cologne.

We had heard some good things about this restaurant. So, we went with the family. We made a reservation to make certain that we had proper accommodations. They sat us upstairs next to the bathroom. Strike one. The table next to us started smoking cigarettes. There is a no smoking law in Germany for restaurants. The staff not only didn't care, they provided the table ash trays. Strike two. We ordered steaks (hey, it's a steak house). It took more than an hour for the order to appear. The restaurant was not that busy. How long should it take to cook a steak anyways? Overall, the service was poor. Strike three. The steaks were full of sinew and gristle. There are only three strikes in baseball, but this is Germany, so I will award the El Chango a fourth strike. Avoid this restaurant if you have ANY other options while in Cologne (and you have many).
