We had a great schnitzel (original), which came with a warm potato salad, and a regular salad. Was fantastic. We shared it, as you get two large pieces of pork. If you are hungry you could probably finish one yourself, but sharing was best for us (after a heavy lunch). Highly recommended!

I went last saturday for dinner with my boyfriend during our stay in Colonia, and the experience was great! Waiters were so kind, the place is so authentic, good price and the most important, our schnitzel very very good! I really recomend this place to all the people who visit Colonia.

When you visit Oma Kleinmann's you eat Schnitzel ... no other option, really. They are big, juicy, delicious, come in different varieties, side dishes are homemade ... did I mention, that the Schnitzels are BIG? Afterwards plunge into the buzzing nightlife on Zülpicher street with it's many bars and pubs ...

This is one of those places where you're thrown back into how restaurants used to look, feel and taste. The most amazing schnitzels which are literally as big (or bigger) as your head. Note that they only accept cash, as a business traveler that was actually quite inconvenient. Other than that an amazing dinner and evening!

Holy moly, schnitzel here is GIGANTIC. They don't even have plates that fit the amount of meat given to you. I split my jagerschnitzel with another person and it was more than enough. Got spatzle as a side and it was delicious with the mushroom gravy the schnitzel comes with. We got there early and waited before they opened. With... More

Advice: Make a reservation if you can. We visited on a busy sunday evening at around 6pm. The restaurant/bar was very busy and we had to add our name to the list. We waited around 35 minutes but glad we did! The food is outstanding and is a place to get the biggest schnitzel you have ever seen. The food... More

After getting to Köln, we decided we wanted to eat at the number 1 German restaurant in the city. This did not let us down! The schnitzel was HUGE and atmosphere was delightful. The place was crowded and when we arrived we were welcomed with beer to wait for a table to arrive. After about 30 minutes we sat at... More
