Visited on a Thursday at 11:00 a.m. so the place was completely empty and it’s really hard to tell about the ambiance. The place is large and looks really authentic. Nice wooden tables and beautiful interior. Service was very rude at first (the guy had to pick a barrel just for us), but he became almost friendly when we ordered a 2nd glass. Selection is of one beer only, but it’s the best Kölsch in town by a mile. We didn’t try the food. Price was 1,60 euros for 20 cl, which is amazing considering how good the beer is and also cheaper than most of the places downtown. Really nice place that I will hopefully be able to visit again someday when it’s crowded.

Probably the best kolsch in town and a nice place to drink it. If you only have one kolsch this is the one.

Niice location away from the touristy areas. Service was quite good. Enjoyed a fresh Kolsh from the cask while relaxing in the biergarten. Nice way to wrap up the day. Worth checking out if in the area.

Nice authentic pub with wooden table and a cool terrasse where we can see part of the beer brewing setup. Authentic Kölsch service and experience. Best Kölsch out there by a mile. It is worth a detour to Köln just to visit this place. I strongly recommend to have one Kölsch in all other places and end spend tehe rest of your time here.

A nice German bier garten at the rear of the pub/restaurant. We sat down in the bier garten and ordered two small glasses (200ml) of their excellent version of the Kölsch style, poured directly from a large wooden barrel. Polite service and rather relaxed atmosphere. Has got a few more beers on the menu than just their own brew. Located ten minutes’ walk from the Dom in a much more quiet area of Köln (visited with Frau Eva 22.07.2014).

Nice place, has a garden outback with a view into the brewery. Service was kind of blunt both times we were there but at least not outright rude which was nice. I wanted to hate the kölsch but I must admit it is easily the best out there, and by a fair margin. We were there twice, once to see Germany eliminate France during the world cup so the ambiance was pretty tip top. Will absolutely return.

Had there been for lunch on a Saturday. The brewpub looks very charming and welcoming, liked the feeling in the Biergarten a lot. The waiter / Köbes was very nice and freindly, serving us very fast. I ordered "Himmel und Ärd" - probably the most regional food available for a tenner - very expensive. I didn’t like it I must admit - fried black sausages (looked liked something out of horses) and mashed apples and potatoes topped with some sauteed onions. My husband liked it kind of. But anyway the beer is nice, the place wonderful to relax and enjoy the day. Would not come back due to the high prices of food, but it was nice for a visit.

Typical german Kolsch bar: loads of wooden tables, small wooden seats. One of the better Kolsch available. Dont order anything but beer here, cause the Kobes will be rude.
