If you like koelsch beer the this place can't be beaten! Atmosphere is great with waiters toting beers ten at a time. We've never eaten here but it's possible. Can be heaving with people at weekends and festival times. Don' expect to sit. Not to be missed on any trip to Cologne.

Once us Irish got over the small beer glasses we enjoyed it immensely. Visited twice over two days. The staff even secured my cap and scarf which I left the first night. Great excuse to return. Food is fabulous. The smell is inviting. The staff are busy but friendly. A must visit in cologne.

It was difficult to find table at 20:00, It was crowdy and noisy. If you can stand the noise, then you will enjoy your food and you won't stop drinking beer, the waiters keep bringing it as long as you sit.

If you want to experience germany, don't enter this place. The beer is awful, the food don't worth the try, the staff is rude and don't speak english, no one cares about the client and about get you seated. I think they even want you to come inside, better turn around and go away... got laugh by four attendants when... More
