We stopped here on a Sunday, when the Heumarkt square was absolutely packed by Germans enjoying a relaxing day. We were fortunate to score a table outside the restaurant, and glad we did. The food was excellent, and frankly, the Pork Knuckle had enough meat...More

Very large restaurant but due separate rooms, it still feels cozy. Well done. The beer is obviously Kölsch and it always tastes smooth and is easy to drink. The staff was ok, and although it was not extremely busy (Tuesday), they had a stressful manner...More

Frequented by locals this place is a cant miss. Multiple seating options including outdoors as long as you don’t mind the smoke. Great service and superb local beer. We had the Bratwurst And goulash which were both excellent and large serving. Great spot for that...More

I think the worst waiters work in this place. You should never give a chance. Terribble experience in Germany.

We have just stopped here in the afternoon to have a couple of beers. The waiters insisted us to have food as well then started to act rude because we did not want to eat. So don’t go there
