I was a few days in Cologne, but a place like this is so exceptional that I went back more than once.
The meat is good, so good and tender.
The prices are mediumo-high, but definitely worth it. I experienced the kitchen is open until 23.
In addition to the quality of the courses, the friendliness of the people we found make a difference compared to other places in which I have been hosted.

The place was suggested by a colleague who lives near Cologne and we decided to try it ..n it turned out to be the best thing we did to ourselves on a cold n windy Sunday noon! It's a nice cozy place with wooden decor, was specially decorated for the carnival week which made it appear even livelier and colourful...not exactly an inexpensive place...but my friend and me enjoyed the Lamb chops and Beef steak we ordered while sipping on Cologne special kölsh beer and Red wine.. it also turned out to be a perfect place to watch from our window seats, the groups of people in costumes walking past the restaurant while parading through the city - while we stayed warm inside! :) Not a surprise then that we ordered some more wine and were informed it was closing time already (at 2pm)..the lady serving us thankfully still let us have a glass each though it meant that she had to stay back 15-20 minutes past her break time..truly appreciated! :) Great experience and totally recommended!

One of the best Argentinian restaurant I have ever been. Meat was simply great, service fast. Wine was very good too. We had dinner on second floor; nice tables.

You have to Book a Table in Advance, every day of the week ! Service could Be a Little faster, sometimes :) but they are always friendly ! Steaks are Top, jamón y queso are not the same as in Spain, so just concentrate on the Meat.
