食事の内容は普通のファミレス並みですが、ウエイターの質が悪いです。日本人と見るや勝手に請求に10%以上のチップを入れてきていたのを同僚が支払った後に見つけたので、マネージャーらしき人物を捕まえ、この店は勝手にチップを乗せるのか?と聞くとそうではないといったので、該当するウエイターを捕まえ、散々文句を言って返金させました。 味も普通なので、お勧めしません。 There is a waiter who charges gratuity on the bill without noitce. I complained to the manager and get it refunded, but the waiter kept complained until I left the restaurant. Quality is just ordinary so I do not recommend.

Typical German restaurant with the best Schweinehaxe in town. Long tables remind you of Oktoberfest and beer flows a lot ;)

The venue is located nearly in the old town of Cologne. Parking is only possible in car parks. The place is very large with a lot of tables and different halls. The decoration is typical for a Cologne brewery. The food is standard too but yummy. You go there because of the beer, the Kölsch. The service is reasonable quick... More

We went on Saturday for our first and last time . Having visited many Brauerei in Köln and having great service this was the opposite end of the spectrum. The waiter threw the drinks at us beer going everywhere. I had to ask 3 times for some soft drinks . And when I asked for some more drinks and a... More

We were here during Fasching, so the city was very busy. As a result, the service seemed a little bit spotty. But the food more than made up for it - it was one of the best Schweinshaxe I've had (and I've tried a lot!) The portions were also absolutely huge and very good value.

This restaurant was established in 1318! It's a great experience. The food was top notch, and the experience was perfect.

If you like Cologne beer you'll love the brewing company Sion! The staff is serving the local beer specialties in a very funny and friendly way and the beer served in the typical glasses is delicious! The menu is offering average standard pub food. Perfect as base for drinking beer!

This is a very nice brewhouse, the food is local and good, the brew is obligatory and the prices are fair (about 30 € for two people for the meal and 3 bears each). I got the impression that we were lucky to find a place to sit, so maybe plan ahead.

Went to this Brauerei before and the food was ok (not good, but ok). During my last visit the food was disgusting. The Meat was cold and hard, drowned in canned gravy. The cabbage had a stench and the dumplings were obviously not selfmade but convenience food. Every cook would habe been deeply ashamed to serve a dish like this.... More
