We had lunch here. The service is not the fastest but they were nice. I strongly recommend their salmon pizza. We also tried chocolate mouse and tiramisu. Mousse was not fresh and soft but the tiramisu was very delicious. The price was affordable.

nice atmosphere with willing service. Food was average, nothing special. In this sense it is expensive as dishes just ok. However, it has live atmosphere and the location is no. Personally I would prefer I had avoid it.

Dropped into the restaurant by accident after a poor experience in the Brauhaus Sion, and what a great find. A huge restaurant, but quick efficient service from a very pleasant waitress. Food excellent, as were the drinks and a very reasonable price.

We had a lovely table by the window overlooking the Xmas market. Service was very good. Food also good and reasonably priced. It was the busiest restaurant in the square and had a good ambience.

I went with the recommendation of the hotel reception and I regret that I went. It's a huge restaurant. Quite casual. I typically ask for assorted antipasti to see the place "excites" or not. This one is a no-no.A piece of melon that's not at...More

Nur wenige Minuten von Kölner Dom und Rhein entfernt liegt das XII Apostel Köln mitten in der Altstadt, die den richtigen Rahmen gibt für die XII Apostel Speisekarte. Hier findet man den milden Petrus, einen scharfen Judas oder den beliebten Paolo. Die Rede ist von der Spezialität des Hauses, den riesigen, hauchdünnen und knusprigen Holzofen-Pizzen.
