Great place to stop when in Cologne. Food was excellent, whole group enjoyed the meal. Beer was great as well, good old classic kolsch. Loved the atmosphere, sat outside and enjoyed the lively tables around us. Would visit again if back in Cologne.

Great venue, traditional with a modern touch. Food is good here. Zims platter was recommended by the waiter on one visit, now it's my choice at this venue, not had a bad one yet. If in a large group, best to take cash.
