We went there our first night in Cologne. The atmosphere was nice and the food was quite good. Unfortunately, my friend and I both got very sick with diarrhea right after dinner and were still in bed the next day.More

Seemed to be more of a locals only restaurant which can be intimidating when you don’t speak german, but our server spoke English which was perfect. Food was incredible, highly suggest the pork chop. Took around 45 minutes to cook but well worth the wait.

Excellent meat, but the rest was mediocre. Costumer service was terrible. not even goobye when we were leaving. Kinda worth it if you're looking for a very German place.

Food is really good and price is not expensive at all. Service could be better though, we asked for a table and they ignored us two times.

Went to check out their Weiner Schnitzel. It was very tasty, with a huge portion and another huge portion of crispy fried on the side. Our beer glasses were not empty for more than 10 seconds, as is typical in Cologne.

I saw Max Stark was close to my hotel and well-reviewed so I decided to give it a try. Even at 2 p.m., it was relatively crowded, which I find to be a good sign. I decided to order the jägerschnitzel, which is the pork...More

Excellent restaurant for noon, with very good service and a list of local tasty dishes and beers. Warm atmosphere, at 10 minutes to walk to the Rhin banks and another 10 to the cathedral. Take away service also.

Agree with zuzka. Doubt if they take reservations but you can get there early with a couple of mates, take a table and drink their local beer while waiting. Experience their beer services :)
