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. Clearly, I was on my own and upon me entering the restaurant, it was clear that my bill wouldn't be reaching great heights, which may explain the lack of interest I experienced on a Tuesday night. The quality of food... More

the reviews on TripAdvisor were not too good, but I thought to give t a try. The bread was served without butter, and when I asked for, they served margarine and no creamy butter. The carpaccio tasted like nothing, it was served almost frozen with a lot of Parmesan cheese. The entrecôte Should have been served with a little of... More
