We made reservations to go and eat on 26th of december @ this restaurant. It was supposed to be ok, not over expensive and middle quality food. So say the reviews. Wel we were honestly disappointed. Our waiter was not friendly at all, probably tired or what? The food we got was not of a good quality. I ordered as a starter the Vitello tonato…never tasted it as bad as this evening.
The main dish was ok but not perfect my meat was overcooked. Anyway just to say that they probably had a bad day or what? I don't know but not satisfied at all…so if you have the chance choose one of the many other restaurants that are around the same place at the river side.

Had a great four course duck meal with the duck being the highlight: cross from the oven, cut in front of you, similar to Beijing Duck, but of course German style. Wine was excellent, soup so so and desert was nice too. staff was very attentive and friendly, seems very good family run place, of course still a touristy place, but nice atmosphere especially upstairs, locals are coming too mainly downstairs.

I have eaten at Em Krutzche several times and it seems to improve each time. Their duck preparations are among my favorite anywhere. German specialities like potato pancakes are a must have.

Our second visit completely different than the first, both service and food. In our second visit, the service was unfriendly and slow, while the food was just a tad better than cafeteria style. You might hit Em Krutzche on a good day, or you might not.

A restaurant serving traditional German food located near the Rhine River. We first dined here on our trip in the spring of 2012 and returned to it during our brief stop in Cologne in June 2013. The pork and beef dishes are very tasty and the portions are hearty. The atmosphere of warm wood furniture and blue and white china fits with the traditional food. The desserts are very good too, but one has to pace oneself to save room for them.
