This was definitely the best restaurant in cologne. Great German food and German atmosphere. Amazing pork chop, Schnitzel, and smooth beer on tap. It was so good we are there two night in a row.

The Easter special 400gr US steak was the best piece of meat I ever had. Tasty and tender. Worth a Big Tip !

An original Cologne bar/Restaurant. Great food, kölsch and peculiar local clientele. Prices are great and service is fast and friendly. It is usually crowded and loud, but it's anyways a great starting point for a unforgettable night out in Cologne!

We went there our first night in Cologne. The atmosphere was nice and the food was quite good. Unfortunately, my friend and I both got very sick with diarrhea right after dinner and were still in bed the next day.More

Seemed to be more of a locals only restaurant which can be intimidating when you don’t speak german, but our server spoke English which was perfect. Food was incredible, highly suggest the pork chop. Took around 45 minutes to cook but well worth the wait.

Excellent meat, but the rest was mediocre. Costumer service was terrible. not even goobye when we were leaving. Kinda worth it if you're looking for a very German place.

Food is really good and price is not expensive at all. Service could be better though, we asked for a table and they ignored us two times.

Agree with zuzka. Doubt if they take reservations but you can get there early with a couple of mates, take a table and drink their local beer while waiting. Experience their beer services :)
