Visited this place on a Friday noon (1-2pm). It wasnt full but there were people eating and drinking. Small restaurant with nice ambiance and nice yard next to it with tables and seats for when the weather is good. I didnt try the food, I only had some Paffgens which was what I needed after work. Very good service, fast and kind. They let me sit at a table even without ordering food.. which didn’t happen in other similar places even if they had free tables.

Very glad we made the effort to visit Gaststatte Lommerzheim. Fantastic opportunity for a genuine Kolsch drinking experience. We didn’t eat there, but had we been hungry and I wasn’t vegetarian, there were some very big chunks of meat being served for 10 - 12 euros. If you need an reason to persude your family to leave Koln tourist central to come here it’s only a 5 min walk from Koln Triangle which has a 360 degree roof top viewing 29 stories for fantastic views over the city and beyond.

Highest rated place in all of Cologne. Of course only one beer on tap, but it is the best of the Kolschs at least. I hear the food was good, but we stopped in after dinner, so I don’t know myself. The place is small and a bit cramped, when we arrived at after 10PM there were about 20 people crowded outside, smoking. Inside we actually found a table, but the second the smoking crew came in it was packed. Unlike Max Stark, the service here is actually solid; Paffgen flowed freely. This is clearly a favorite haunt among the locals; I guess they are trying to get away from the touristy beer halls on the other bank, but the lack of outside seating, coupled to the raw heat generated by so many bodies in such a small space, made this a bit uncomfortable to me.

Genuine place with excellent service & the best Kölsch in the city. Nice beergarden. Would definite like to have a few alternatives to the Kölsch, at least if you like to spend some time here.

Visited on a wednesday for lunch. It wasn’t overly crowded, but it was almost full. Really nice ambiance with almost only locals. Service was efficient and quite friendly. Selection is limited to one beer, but since it’s the best Kölsch (Päffgen) it’s still a pretty good selection. The beer is served properly too. The food was really good. The Kotelett was huge and super tasty too. Price are great for the beer and for the food. For what is it, it’s hard to get any better than this. Great ambiance, great food and great price along the best Kölsch you can get in Cologne!

OK, the beer isn’t the main attraction, although it is certainly not bad. Reeking of atmosphere and with a worn down charm, a welcome alternative to the generic Koln outlets.

bartlebier  (118) Belchium im Biersgau, Germany | June 2, 2014
Visited during Festival der Bierkulturen 2014. A Kölner classic, revived and now comfortably at ease with being a revived run-down stereotype of solid Cologne, no-nonsense Brauhaus tradition. Blue-collar atmosphere, to the point of turning cigar brown as the walls, but with refurbished WCs. To reiterate and confirm: the chunky, crispy, juicy Kotelett and mandingo Bratwurst are the main draw here, the singular Päffgen on cask this side of the Rhine and the attentive, no-nonsense yet never rude service the true lustre of this place. Owned by Päffgen I’m told. One of those places you are glad is on RB when planning a trip using only this site, although it maybe technically shouldn’t be...

This bar was about twenty minutes walk maybe a bit less if we hadn’t of dawdled taking in views when crossing the river. This place looks a very non-descript place from the outside, btw its close to Deutzer Freheit a Ubahn station, actually wasn’t Freheit a band from the eighties who were ’keeping the dream alive’. The room upstairs actually ground floor was rammed so we headed downstairs to the cellar which was ranked also rammed. We sat and waited patiently for a table to become free, probably an hour and 20 mins drinking Kolsch :-) We were then offered a table to join two German ladies who were just finishing their meals, they were really lovely very friendly & also helpful explaining the menu, they worked at Cologne/Bonn airport for Lufthansa but because of the local travel strikes across the city yesterday & today they were having a couple of beers (they had six each!) before driving home. Back to the place. The food portions were typically German i.e. a shrine to pork, they were also huge, tasty, simple & great value. The Paffgen Kolsch was excellent, prices were superb for food & beer.This place is deservedly popular, really like it, great buzz about this real friendly place.

Managed to get a table on a Friday night and it was again close to perfect. Frank runs this places flawless. Päffgen is served perfectly, food (Kotelett, Bratwurst) is very good by Brauhaus standards. I left at 4:00 am after we finished the last keg with the help of some Dunnerkiel. Only drawback: always crowded and no reservation. Cellar rooms are only second choice.
