This place is awesome. Friendly and fast service, right on the square with outside seating, and of course the food. I had the ham knuckle and apple strudel and hot damn it was so good I felt things I haven't felt in years.

I had never had Pig's Knuckle - it was delicious! Crispy skin on the outside and tender meat on the inside. I got it with sauerkraut, which was also delicious. The dish was huge - I highly recommend sharing it or planning on taking some to a street person afterwards.

The Haxen was absolutely delicious, perfectly cooked and succulent. The sauerkraut was amazing too. Service was friendly and fast. We felt lucky to find this place on our last night in Cologne...would definitely go again of we had more nights here.

Went for dinner since we wanted a German food. The food was quite good and came quite fast. Personnel was polite. The place has a bar in the front and the music was loud as were the people. Could still talk to each other so we didn't mind that much.

My family of 3 was greeted as soon as we walked in and shown a table. I suppose we were a bit early for dinner at 6pm(Sunday), there were only a few other tables with guests. It picked up shortly after and the tables started to fill. Ordered a tasty Kolsch Beer (tiny but great), I had the goulash w/spatzle... More

Visited this place due to really good comments and rate on Trip advisor. Expectations was high, because every visited place during the trip was really good, and this is #9 place in whole Cologne! Environment inside was really basic. We expected then the food would be exceptionally good. Another disappointment. Bad value for the money: food is ok, but we... More

Very conveniently located in one of the main squares of cologne but not a turist trap (the bill was absolutely ok). Goulash was really tasty but does not even compare to their specialty the pork knuckle.. huge, tender, perfectly cooked, in one word delicious!
