I saw Max Stark was close to my hotel and well-reviewed so I decided to give it a try. Even at 2 p.m., it was relatively crowded, which I find to be a good sign. I decided to order the jägerschnitzel, which is the pork...More

Excellent restaurant for noon, with very good service and a list of local tasty dishes and beers. Warm atmosphere, at 10 minutes to walk to the Rhin banks and another 10 to the cathedral. Take away service also.

A typical Cologne Eckkneipe. Cozy, friendly and great food for very reasonable prices. This is a place that still offers typical Rhineland food like Sauerbraten made from horse or Fried Blood Pudding. English menu is available. We had the biggest pork chops ever. Nicely cooked...More

Agree with zuzka. Doubt if they take reservations but you can get there early with a couple of mates, take a table and drink their local beer while waiting. Experience their beer services :)
