“A Bar Worth Visiting.”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Our friend Silke, a native of Cologne, told us to find the Lommerzheim if we could. Eventually, we did. From the outside, its nothing much, but once inside, you're gathered in, & within minutes, we were conversing with a local patron, with a beer in hand. In Cologne, the habit is to serve beers in 0.2Ltr glasses, so as to keep it fresh. Its possible to drink several, & not think you've had very much! Food is available, & isn't expensive. The loos are clean as a whistle, & the natives are friendly. Visit!

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

After reading the reviews on here, my husband and I decided to give it a try last night. At first I was a bit skeptical. There isn't a sign out front so we weren't even sure we were in the right place but it turned out very well! It is like a total dive and I love places like that!
It was very busy and loud and such a fun atmosphere! We were seated at a table with a group of local guys and this turned out well. I'm always a bit nervous about sharing tables with strangers but it turned out to be soooo much fun! The food is amazing! We both had the cutlet with onions and fries. Huge piece of meat that you can cut with a butter knife. The staff was very attentive. Awesome place! Awesome experience! Awesome food!

“Great, Authentic Experience.”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

The place was so busy when we visited, but we found a table for four people in the basement. It was so very hot, but once the beer started flowing, we cooled down and had a great experience. The setting is awesome and rustic and so very "hole-in-the-wall." If you want to get away from the touristy stuff in Cologne, check this place out, and if you come for dinner, come HUNGRY! The portions are massive!

“My Friday Lunchtime treat”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

I have been going to the place for about 3 years now, at least once per month, its great. It has a nice outdoor terrace in the summer, a great cellar area for eating in the Winter, or the main bar area if you want to mingle with the locals. Most people eat the cutlet here, which you can have a fatty cut (much more tasty) or a leaner cut (imagine 4 pork chops stacked), but I also love the Bratwurst, which is huge!. I believe the beer here is the best in Cologne. If you like huge plates of meat and great beer you will love this place!
