Nice place in the centre, gets quite busy but has a good vibe. A bit too massive and busy for my liking, I prefer Lommersheim for drinking my Päffgen, but when in the area it’s definitely worth a stop.
Visited 2 nights beginning of March .. Really nice restaurant with good feelings .. Paffgen from wood barrel always on which is good .. The food also is classic but tasty and well cooked .. One of my favourite in town ..
Walked into this place when we saw Paffgen on a huge sign out front (we were actually going to Sünner right next door). Kind of blunt shitty german service but they got us our beers and fast. They have päffgen downtown which is probably their greatest strength, but I would still recommend heading to päffgen instead.
Beautiful large & spacious building with lots of wood, the inside has a nice feel to it and carries a light feel of history to it. Päffgen is the Kölsch they carry and it is probably the easiest place to try that one in Cologne. Since it is the highest rated Kölsch on RB this one seems like a logical addition to any bar crawl in Cologne. It wasn’t my favourite one & I actually preferred the Pfaffen which is next door. Like most Kölsch bar we visited this one was booming. Service was a touch above average & we got a waiter who had the most badass voice I have ever heard. He had this totally metallic voice which almost sounded like it was coming from a voice box. He was a cool guy. Everything went quickly & he was attentive enough. Overall this was a pretty nice and solid place and definitely worth popping by. Although I wasn’t really paying attention to it, I did get the vague feeling that the clientele here had a touch more locals mixed in.
