This is a favourite hangout of mine in Cologne. Wonderfully located, not a tourist trap. Great architecture and ambiance. Very mixed public mostly local of all ages. Many students meet with friends or to enjoy the free internet/ wifi. Full bar where you can sit and watch/meet people, talk with friends and simply relax. Or you can sit at a... More

My partner wanted me to see this establishment - first impressions was that it was busy with a good mix of people. The place however in my opinion needs a decoration just to add a better vibe. The food however was very good indeed, I had risotto and my partner had ravioli - a glass of prosecco is a bargain... More

I was visiting Cologne for the weekend and I had seen images of this place online and travelled to the area specially to visit Hallmackenreuther for breakfast, I was very disappointed that the service was nothing but rude and it ruined our day.

Used to go to this place a lot. Always mega busy. Hadn't been for a long time. Went back to have lunch outside. Tons of empty tables but the waitress couldn't be asked to set the table and gave us an attitude. Speaking to the staff inside about how we were betting treated did not result in anything. Apparently they... More

We happened to be around the area with a local person and recommended this place for a drink. I wanted to order a cocktail without alcohol but the waitress, not the friendliest, said they could not do them and it had to be something in the menu, otherwise no chance. The place looks quite trendy and full of young people,... More

I would say that this place is really hip which is why it has its own charm, so to say. Had a delicious panini here.

We visited on a Saturday, late, warm, afternoon. Hospitality: 9/10 The lady waiter helping us was very polite and spoke good English which helped a lot. The tables in the terrace, close to the church, are nice. Drinks: 8/10 Good selection of drinks and cocktails- a whole page is actually dedicated to them. Atmosphere: 8/10 The whole area is surrounded... More

I visited more than 10 times, yet I have not tried the food. Always came for wine. They have wide selection of good wines, seatings outside, they are englishspeakers friendly, and they provide you with warm blanket if it gets cold. The waitresses are all pretty and friendly. I miss my times there.

Only been here once for a quick lunch. They had a daily menu with three choices in addition to the usual menu. I chose a chili-con-carne which was delicious. I liked the place, the friendly service and prices were ok in my opinion. Seemed to be a place where you can just hang out and spend the day. Will be... More

As a Cologne semi native, now expat: This is, like most places, a location to socialize with friends. Hence drink beer (koelsch) and frequently. Then eat some food to continue to socialize and drink more beer. For this, The Hallmackenreuther has been a good place ever since it opened more than 20 years ago (and amazing how well it has...
