Cut to the chase, the food may not be Michelin star, and the service may not be for those who are 'pretentiously' minded, but if you make the effort to talk to the staff, engage with the other customers and soak up the laid back ambience, then the experience will be more positive than negative. Spent our second evening here only because of the convenience to our hotel, coupled to our preference of menu, and had a great time. Simply put, spent time to talk to the staff, and spent not a fortune on the meal (and drinks). Good quality, fair price, excellent rapport (if you make the effort). Didn't get the name of our waiter, but whoever said the Germans don't have a sense of humour was so wrong. "Ni hao" (you had to be there) and thanks for a great evening. "Zaijian" until "nachstes jahr". We will be back.

Thank NicRack

Not the best steak house in Cologne by a long shot, but staff very friendly and food big portions and very good. A good find for s reasonable price.

Had dinner here in Dec 2017. The portions were huge and at the time they had a special of 13e steak dinner. The portions were huge, service was fast, no lines, server was very charming. We were with a finicky eater who happened to be my niece and she loved the restaurant and loved the steak. She even asked for a side of garlic bread and when I got the bill, we were not charged for it. All in all...3 adults, 3 entrees, 3 salads, garlic bread, beer, still water, dessert..all for 45e. We will be back as going out I saw the pasta entrees on another table and it looked good.

P.S. Mashed Potatoes was soooooo gooood

Visited on Boxing Day in the evening with my fiancé, we asked to sit inside as it was freezing but the obnoxious waiter told us to sit outside by a heater that was pretty useless, even though there were seats inside.

We both ordered the pork knuckle which was still cold in the middle where it hadn't been reheated enough. The "waiter" was only interested in a table of girls next to us and when it came to paying, he pushed for a tip. I didn't give him one and he pretty much threw the card back at me and stormed off!

Unbelievably rude, don't waste your time here.

The restaurants looks like a sister of the Steakhouse Royal next door, at least their menu and ofers are similar.
The restaurant is located in the old part of Cologne, near the Rhine river.
It has great offers for lunch and dinners, but also the other menues are acceptable value for money.
The restaurant serves typical German dishes, as well as steaks.
There is a huge outdoor seating area, heated in the winter period.
Service is friendly.
The food is OK.
Value for money is good.
