The german wurst are so popular and nowadays you are not aware of what is it inside. The best choice is to take the big salads and enjoy it.

Nice kolsch. Good bar area to enjoy a drink. Just off the main square so gets lots of tourists and food suffers. Wouldn't eat here but nice for a drink

I enjoyed my dinner in this place twice, during a fair in Cologne. The Koelsh beer is very good (slightly sparkling). I ordered sausages and sauerkraut, and they were delicious! The place was very crowded and noisy, but I enjoyed it!

I don't expect 5 star service in a Brauhaus, but the service we got and the food were well below standard and I for one will never return. Two of us ordered the Sweinhaxe, which is a favourite but must be with crispy crackling. when they arrived both had very soft skin so we asked for them to be changed... More

This is certainly a local restaurant which keeps up a certain appearance in terms of local food (meat) and people. We were there close to Rosenmontag so several dressed up people made the atmosphere. But also the waiters do a grumpy act and continuously serve Kölsch beer (do not too pushy). Cash money is highly prefered. The food is local... More

Actually - the 2nd best beer! After getting stuck in the revolving door I considered that maybe I shouldn't have another beer. So glad I did. This little be house makes the second best beer we tried today. Food looked good. Plenty of atmosphere and lots of parties celebrating carnival.

A traditional Cologne brewery, with lots of local customers, great laid back staff and friendly service, authentic German food. What I liked about it is that you can go for drinks or for a meal, it is easy going.

I would NEVER recommend this place especially for dinner. Their servers are more than rude if they realize that you are foreigner. I went there with my friends, but after their weird and unacceptable behaviors, we have finished our dinner and beers in 30 minutes to leave this place as soon as possible. With all, it was one of the... More
