Gruber's ratings in most of the popular restaurant guides for Köln are well-deserved. Tucked away just above the river about a 5 minute taxi from the Döm is worth a visit. The wiener schnitzel was not what I was expecting. It was light, tender, flavorful...More

Prior to my arrival in Cologne, used the reliable resources of TripAdvisor to seek out the best schnitzel in town. Low and behold -- it was Austrian and not German :) Many define great schnitzel by portion size - that which overflows the plate. This...More

Great Schnitzel and typical Austrian food served in an attractive and very comfortable environment. But that's where it stops - Gruber's somehow lacks "real emotion" and wow factor for my likings. Solid but boring.

I go to Gruber's with some frequency, their Schnitzel is good. This evening I went at 18:30 with no reservations. We were 2 persons. I was dressed casual, not in my usual suit and tie. At 18:30 the restaurant was empty, one of the waiters...More

We stumbled onto this restaurant by chance and it was the nicest lunch we had. We sat in the sun drinking lovely Austrian wines and the food was simply gorgeous. The staff were excellent too, meaning this was a nice "escape" from central Cologne.
