German bear house nicely decorated to give the local feeling. Wide selection of diches on the menú. Nice big rations . The bear is Ok although I prefer another type of beer. "Simpatico" waiter that works hard for his tip and reminds you that he has 7 kids at the end of the meal.

Stopped in for a small snack and beer after a long walk through the shopping area of Cologne. 2 of us shared a platter of mixed cold meats and sausages. Snack was good and there was plenty of it. Other items coming out of the kitchen looked good and all portions seemed healthy.

My wife and I stopped here for a quick Kolsch and snack and were left with a bad taste after the poor service and overpriced food. We ordered a side dish of white asparagus and were charged 12 euro, which was much too high, and our waiter was acting as if he was doing us favors. I would look elsewhere... More

This is one of the most famous and original breweries in Cologne with an internal decoration which recalls the old times. The beer is served in the typical way here in Cologne with small glasses of 0.2 litres. Athens beef is always very fresh and the waiters are very good in providing to you a new glass ax the previous... More

I went to this place with my girlfriend and the staff told us that the restaurant was busy even if the first floor was totally empty and there were some availability table, at the ground floor. As a consequence, we decided to come back after 30 minutes as the waiter told us and we found a table. The food was... More

On a sunday midday we were having a breakfast here and we were the only ones. Lots of space and very dry German service. Almost insulting but effective service. Päffgen Kölsch and local breakfast platter. Nice and easy.

We enjoyed so much this evening event, drinking beer and eating huge portions of delicious meat. The venue Was crowded and everybody looked they were having fun. One of the weiters didn't look so happy to serve us though, maybe He was too much distressed for The hard work.

A little out of the way but worth the 10 min walk from the Koln cathedral. The waitstaff were extremely helpful, friendly - once you get seated, just get past their initial brusque natures.... and their food recommendations were spot on. I do wish the beer came quicker, but after the pork knuckle which we ended up ordering as a... More
