We wanted to reserve and they said to come within 15 minutes but when we arrived they told us that they had no tables and the staff seemed to ignore us. Very dissapointed as we walked quite a long way to get there.

If you are looking for fine Kolsh beer look no further! Crisp, cold, and delicious. A short 12 minute walk away from the cathedral. Also, the food is fantastic. Large portions and versatile menu. Menus are available in English language. You only have to ask.

Visited one evening whilst staying in Cologne. A tourist trap so we expected it to be busy. We had booked a table and got seated quickly. Food was delicious and the beer was superb as well. The only downside was the noise levels. After 30...More

Very popular and difficult to get a table but worth the wait. Good quality, well cooked, traditional German fare. Good efficient service for both drinks and food; no excessive wait despite how busy the place was. Portions are generous so make sure you’re hungry.

Probably not far. Cologne is a compact city. There is very good public transport in Cologne. Taxis are cheap.
