Just had a lovely visit to this restaurant. The staff is very nice and suggested some great food for us. Nice and cosy inside and the food was great and reasonable. Worth a visit!

¡¡¡Not recommended place!!! When we went to taste “The German beer”, the waiters were very racist. They do not accept foreigners and they expel us for using our mobile. I am very disappointed that in the 21st century there continues to be such a denigrating...More

Just off the main shopping area, this little restaurant is well worth a visit. 5 of us had lovely potato cakes and salmon as reccommended by the very passionate and enthusiastic waiter. The other had beef which he said was delicious.

Very central, close to Hbf and Kolner Dom, also located on the shopping street. Small restaurant, food service is slow. Good for trying kölsch beer.

Eclectic decor which seems to focus on what I must presume is the current or former owners love of the game of golf. Friendly, efficient service. The goulash was delicious and heartwarming, given the cold weather outside on the day I dined there and the...More

The waiters are tradition, some work there for 30 years, and they do recognize their regulars and those, like me, who have not been present in 2 years. The KOELSCH is flowing freely, great draft, keep it coming, is tradition. Never an empty glas in...More
