In one of our wondering walks we found this restaurante. Returned for dinner (being Latin, we tend to eat dinner late, so when we arrived around 8 p.m. it was empty). We are a family of 5, and all asked for diferent meet plates. I asked for a portk shop and (imagined it would be a scrawny little chop). To... More

I have never experienced a so genuine and consistent rude waiter. He did not get anything right more did he care, the wait for the food was outrageous and it did not come at the same time. The steak was ok, not something that I would write home about. And make sure that you bring cash... credit cards are not... More

So out I go to find an ATM some hundred meters away. Not a nice ending for a enjoyable dinner. Why can it be so difficult to get a credit card option to... More

Ambiente is fine Like other reviewer said, service is the limitation. However, I don't felt it to be aggressive but rather understaffed. Steaks were absolutely fine. We'll cooked with nice side dishes. Menu is limited but what they have tasted fine. Besides that and at least worth one additional star: this is a down tow restaurant of a major city... More

We came to the empty restaurant around 6 pm, they gave us a table till 8pm because it was fully booked (so they said). We ordered some steaks, they came rather rare- nobody asked us how we wanted them. Fortunately, I like mine rare but I know some of my friends like it well done! The waiter was really rude... More

Give this a wide berth. Soggy salad, frozen chips and horrific service from the 70's. Like Basil Fawlty but without the laughs...

Our satisfaction of the first night this restaurant in Koln inspired us to repeat the experience to the next day. A very good Spanish wine was recommended to us. Unfortunately the meat of the second night did not correspond to our expectations: in quality. There are no command this kind of meat. The waiter give à good service. But de... More

We were walking about the Christmas market and found this great steak house. Steaks were fabulous and baked potato was great!

Just off the square which hosts the ice rink at Christmas. It's well worth a visit to get away from the bustle of the Christmas Markets and energise before skating. We had one of the best-cooked steaks ever and great value for money.
