Funkhaus is a great, classy bistrot-café-bar on Wallrafplatz, a great location for people watching and hanging out. Food is definitely home made and delicious. Very friendly and kind service. You do however paay for the location, too.

A lovely outdoor seating area in a gorgeous location. Food was amazing however the portions were small for the price and we both left still hungry. Staff were brilliant and happy to help.
