Absolutely loved the food and the beer kept flowing! I had to get the pig knuckle and it was delicious and perfectly cooked. It was a busy night and a little noisy near the bar. Would recommend for anyone that wants to eat classic German fare in lively restaurant. We had great service and good food at a reasonable price.... More

I have visited this brauhaus during my stay because of a fair. I didn't make reservations and walked in at 17:30. I was told they had no place for me. After I asked again if they were sure, they had a table for me for about 1,5 hour. I was OK with that, knowing I had a train to catch... More

Food and service really good. The price is okay but when we asked for the bill they said us it was not possible print it. Weird.

Quick service with plenty of food. Ideally set in the Alter Markt area which provides a lovely, bustling setting to be sat outside. Food delicious and authentically German for a very reasonable price. Service friendly and accommodating of all, beer flowing which is always a positive.

Set on one of Cologne's open squares, the weather was good enough to sit out where we enjoyed the hearty, generous portions of German classics. Beer, wine, schnaps, got it all here and topped with great service from our gregarious waiter. Made our night.

Great food, very reasonable prices and huge portions, very informal atmosphere and the nicest waitress in the world (short blonde hair and glasses) - she was great fun. Seemed to be full of locals too, which can only be a good sign!

You need HUGE appetite to tackle their roasted knuckle, the menu does give you heads up on how heavy each portion is, I think it's 1,4 kg piece of knuckle. You definitely can share this main course. Just order extra sides. The beer is by default serves in 1/2 liter glasses unless you specifically ask for the 300 ml glasses.... More
