Very conveniently located in one of the main squares of cologne but not a turist trap (the bill was absolutely ok). Goulash was really tasty but does not even compare to their specialty the pork knuckle.. huge, tender, perfectly cooked, in one word delicious!

We ate here yesterday, and a year ago yesterday, still perfect, still ate too much, and once again in December, managed to eat outside, watching the world go by.

We were looking for local food and beer when we picked this centrally located spot for lunch. There were only six customers there and one server. She did a great job explaining our options and making us feel welcome. The food was outstanding. So was the beer.

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
