Service here was very good and on detection of our poor German language skills the waiters all fluidly switched to English which we very much appreciated. The food was fantastically tasty and well portioned. A lovely experience.

Great vibe in this gem right off one of the main strips for food and fun. The food...no complaints - the food was well prepared and very tasty. The vegetarian selection was exceptions. The drink...OMG...fantastic. If you are on Koln...this is a must visit.

The food was simply delicious! It is served as tapas, so you can try a lot of different dishes which is ideal for this kitchen. The desert was also very tasty! We closed off with a shot of the house and some tips of the...More
