Best steak restaurant in Cologne - been coming here for years. Best to book as they get very busy. Be prepared to wait 30mins or so - steaks are all grilled on a charcoal barbecue!

I ate with co-workers here one night. The atmosphere is nice though the tables are really packed in. The waiter was more attentive than I'm used to in Cologne. The lamb chops were excellent. After eating here my co-worker said El Chango's had better steak.
