Really nice spot for a lunch in the centre! The menu offered a wide selection, I opted for a pizza which was really nice. It’s a big restaurant, with rows of long tables with a real traditional German feel. The service was quick and the...More

The place is beautifully decorated, and the ambiance was great. The food was good, especially the pizzas and the salads, which we ordered as appetizers. The beef fillet with lobster sauce was nicely prepared, right doness, but the steak knifes were not sharp enough.

We had noticed the restaurant because of its great spot and we decided to go. Food was very good and the service great. It’s a huge restaurant so you have to be prepared for some noise.

Make sure you ask for a bill as we were shown the bill. A bill isn’t offered but a drink was added that we hadn’t had. We’d paid the bill and realised afterwards we had been overcharged. We did get the difference back when confronted

Fed up with pork in Cologne?, try this nice Italian restaurant. Good selection of pasta and pizza, plus meat and fish. Always busy as the food is good. Good selection of beer.

We had lunch here. The service is not the fastest but they were nice. I strongly recommend their salmon pizza. We also tried chocolate mouse and tiramisu. Mousse was not fresh and soft but the tiramisu was very delicious. The price was affordable.

We were 2 families with teens looking for a place to eat with conflicting requirements - lactose intolerance and pork avoidance - and found this restaurant by Heumarkt. The service was uneven but overall helpful and friendly. The food was OK and in large portions,...More

Nur wenige Minuten von Kölner Dom und Rhein entfernt liegt das XII Apostel Köln mitten in der Altstadt, die den richtigen Rahmen gibt für die XII Apostel Speisekarte. Hier findet man den milden Petrus, einen scharfen Judas oder den beliebten Paolo. Die Rede ist von der Spezialität des Hauses, den riesigen, hauchdünnen und knusprigen Holzofen-Pizzen.
