If you want a restaurant with no choice and a grumpy waiter with a bad attitude then this is the place for you. However if you would like to pick what you eat and be served by a friendly waiter, find another restaurant. We booked a table at this restaurant with some friends (8 in total). After sitting down the... More

10 of us arrived here via the Pullman hotels recommendation, they must be on a finders fee. Once sat down we were told what we were eating by the waiter, as they said we couldn't have the main menu. When questioned as to why he said it is better for you and us? We said some people may not want... More

This local favorite was not one for us as service was terribly slow and prices too high . The good was very good but having to ask for wine and water was negligent .

If this is one of the best places in Cologne, I don't dare to ask how the worst may be.

The quality of food... More
