A little out of the way but worth the 10 min walk from the Koln cathedral. The waitstaff were extremely helpful, friendly - once you get seated, just get past their initial brusque natures.... and their food recommendations were spot on. I do wish the beer came quicker, but after the pork knuckle which we ended up ordering as a... More

You can do so much better at just about any other place. There is nothing special here except a very rude waiter and equally rude hostess. STAY AWAY! The food is not very good and the service slow on top of being rude. It is very noisy because the play "fake" live music over the speakers to make you think... More

We visited here for lunch because it was right across the street from the apartment we had rented, and we were starving after we dropped off our luggage four flights up with no lift. It was very interesting and beautiful inside, and the beer (which I think was unique to this place) was great. We ordered pretty basic foods: schnitzel... More

My family and I had a nice experience at Bierhaus Salzgass on Saturday. We were a party of 7, but we were quickly shown to an available table. Our server was friendly and quick to serve us (and offer refills of) the one beer on offer. The food took a rather long time to come out, but luckily the small... More

Certainly different. Beer served from barrels and glasses speedily replaced with lightning speed by a cheerful waiter without asking. Yes cheerful, not grumpy or rude at all. This place was heaving on Friday night and we wouldn't have got in had we not booked a while ago. Food was ok, nothing special. This place is very loud and very busy... More

Despite the fact that the local area guidebook called "Insomnia" lists all credit cards as being accepted here, my request to pay with a credit card was instantly denied by the rude waiter. I paid with cash, but he reacted as if I had just asked to marry his daughter when I asked for a receipt. The waiter really ruined... More

Oh my good, I don't think I've had such bad service in my life, at first I thought it was because we were English, but it wasn't the German people that were hosting us said he was just as rude to them also, the saving grace was the food, this was good and of course the beer. But they really... More

We arrived here at about 5.30 on Saturday evening. This brauhaus was heaving! We initially thought we only wanted a few drinks and were shown to the drinking area near the front. We joined three ladies on a tall table with stools and soon found that the very good beer kept us there for food. We were advised by new... More
