Germans, like the British, frequent neighborhood pubs they call kneipen. When we lived in Cologne, Alcazar was our kneipe. The food is fairly plain but reliable, comforting and inexpensive. On any evening, you might find pastas, salads, potato dishes, perhaps duck or something Asian inspired. The wines are decent and don't cost much. You can't go wrong drinking kölsch, the local beer. Sharing tables is common. This is a place I've brought or met friends, Germans and Americans, adults and children. Sometimes, Alcazar hosts special nights in the lead up to Karneval. On those nights, the place is packed and probably not serving food. If you want to go where the locals go for a normal meal, try Alcazar.

Want a homestyle German luscious dish! my hubby and i loved this, it's not pricey, they have big servings.and great staff. the most expensive meal they have was like 18.
_menu was not in english so.. make sure u have a translator handy. the waitress was so nice, that she tried her very best to explain everything.
_ u have to wait a bit for a table since it\s very busy and mostly visited by locals. but its worth the wait.
_I had oxenburst or beef breast, i guess and my hubby had pork kottelet.. his was huge chunk of meat, plus a great sauce and veggies..
_overall we're a satisfied guest, however, this is not located in the centrum, but it can be reach by U bahn ...halte _ Friesenplatz
