DSG (161) Tel Aviv, Israel | January 23, 2008| Updated August 18, 2008
This place was slightly more crowded than all other Kölsch brewpubs I visited that August noon. Still, service was good and it was quite quiet and cosy. The Köbes seemed a little annoyed when he wanted re-fill my glass after the first beer and I said no (I had too many other beers to drink that day). Still, the Kölsch is very good and one of the best ones.
Visited on Tuesday night, 5 people we found a table at the upper floor. I wasnt able to see the decoration and feel the atmosphere of the ground floor (which I suppose is much bigger at the back) but it was much quieter since there are only two tables at the upper floor. Good service, they had the Kolsch (it was from OK to good) and the Hefeweizen (didnt try). Food was OK too. Average prices for such type of restaurants in Cologne. I would go again.
Visited on Thursday not too long after opening. Place was almost empty. Not huge compare to other Kölsch bars/restaurants in the city. Service was ok and fast. Selection seems to be only one beer (Pfaffen original), but the other ratings are stating there’s more and it might be possible since I didn’t get ahold of a menu while there. Their Kölsch is good. I didn’t try the food. Price was in line with other places in town. Interesting stop.
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. We had to leave a table inside, as we didnt want to eat anything, although there were hardly any people inside. Silly and stupid.
Nice looking place near the Weihnachtsmarkt (in Winter of course). Very friendly who even had some time to talk to us which is rather rare in Köln. Tried their Bock which was pretty OK although I’m not a Heller Bock fan. The food was pretty good, certainly for these prices.
