    Before arriving to Cologne we investigated about the best Brauhaus in the city and many sites recommended us Sion. Now we can tell that is 100% recomendable, very large restaurant, we didn’t wait for a table at all. Ordered 2 pork knuckles, 1 boiled and 1 grilled, both very tasty and large portions. We would recommend each for 2 people. The beer as one of the traditional drinks in city, Kölsch is of course served here, very tasty and comes to you very quickly, the tradition is that the waiters won’t stop bringing full glasses if you don’t lay your coaster on your glass.

  • 5Ariadne K. 2 months ago
    a comfortable place, and close to most places in Koln, the dishes are affordable for the price, a normal price, the food was very good, they do not take long to bring it and the waiters are attentive, from the outside it appears to be a very old restaurant , but it is renovated and has nothing to do with the juiciness inside, I am glad I chose this place, I felt very comfortable, I recommend

  • 5Larraine “Santos” C. 2 months ago
    Very good restaurant for classic German staples. Price and quality ratio is excellent. Staff are nice and accomodating

  • 5Marcello P. 3 years ago
    certainly a classical local pub with nice drinks and traditional food, I have been positively impressed by the design of the place and the price/quality. As soon as we got in we received a traditional beer in a little tiny glass. We ordered few cold dishes and we have waited for only 5/8 minutes. The food was fresh and well presented. I would be back again.

    Great pub to sit on the street and people watch. Food is simple. Service was good. No complaints. Go have some biers and enjoy yourself. Don't worry too much.

  • 5Sebastian S. 2 years ago
    (Translated by Google) Very friendly staff, the negative reviews are in my opinion not to be followed. We enjoyed our beer here at this brewery for a long time and were completely satisfied. No, alcohol consumption did not have a negative impact on our comprehension. We are already looking forward to our next one Visit. (Original) Sehr freundliches Personal, die negativen Bewertungen sind meiner Meinung nach nicht nach zu vollziehen. Wir haben hier längere Zeit an diesem Brauhauhaus unser Bier genossen und waren vollkommen zufrieden. Nein der Alkohol Konsum hatte keinen negativen Einfluss auf unseren Auffassungsvermögen. Freuen uns jetzt schon auf unseren nächsten Besuch.

  • 5Bert S. 2 years ago
    Gute Speisekarte und das Kölsch sowieso. Wurden bestens Bedient. Top

  • 4Bernard G. 2 years ago
    This is your typical Cologne (Kölsche) pub, it has a great location between the cathedral and the old city. The service staff are friendly but in my experience very slow, it was a long time between beers last night. Nonetheless, the beer was cold and the food was good, (mostly traditional meals).

  • 4Jennifer F. 1 year ago
    Nice place to get some drinks. Food was also good! The haxe was sadly a little chewy and not as crispy but still tasted good

  • 4A B. 1 year ago
    Fun local establishment a few meters from the train station and Museum. The food is good and waiters are characters.

  • 4Vivi K. 2 years ago
    A little on the more touristic side, still awesome food and lovely friendly stuff.

  • 4Jerome F. 2 years ago
    The only place in the world to drink Kölsch (all of central Cologne), the drinking culture itself is extremely exciting, and a must-try! I would advise during the Christmas holidays, where you get the Christmas markets and beautifully adorned Dom.

    Very good food. Not expensive. Friendly. Could have another heater outside for the colder weather.

  • 3Caro S. 3 years ago
    The place is beautiful and the waiters were friendly but I was a quite disappointed with the food. I ordered a schnitzel, the food was warm swimming in oil and the potatoes were rubbery. My husband ordered the broad beans with bacon, his food was delicious and served hot. We sat in the inside where many waiters could see us and no one ever bothered to bring us another beer. We eventually called a waiter and asked to bring us another one.

  • 3Simone B. 2 years ago

  • 3Manuel R. 7 months ago
    Disappointing kitchen. Spätzle noodles were severely overcooked, Potato soup not great. Service a slow despite nobody being in there. We usually tip but didn't tip because our beers weren't refilled. Sorry to say it but Köln doesn't have the best food and this Brauhaus is no exception. I like the Sion Kölsch though, it's a nice Kölsch. Interior looks nice and toilets were clean.

  • 3Carlos Rueda D. 2 years ago
    (Translated by Google) The food tasted average and the portions a bit too small. The first Cologne economy, where you have to order the Kölsch ... (Original) Das Essen hat durchschnittlich geschmeckt und die Portionen ein Tick zu klein. Die erste Kölner Wirtschaft, wo man das Kölsch bestellen muss...

  • 3Jesper C. 3 years ago
    Group of 10, business dinner. Food: Big portion of traditional German foods. You will not leave feeling hungry! Service: Very good. Very service minded. Atmosphere: Traditional wooden-wood

  • 3J. 2 years ago
    (Translated by Google) Delicious Kölsch and good food. The waitresses could be a bit more "on their toes" and there could be more vegetarian food options. (Original) Leckeres Kölsch und gutes Essen. Die Bedienungen könnten allerdings etwas mehr "auf Zack" sein und es könnte mehr vegetarische Essensangebote geben.

  • 2Kyle L. 5 months ago
    Tourist trap all the way. Mediocre food. Rude and inattentive server. The server openly advertised his disgust for one person in our party ordering a drink other than Kölsch. If you’re desperate for food or drink it works. But don’t make the trip for this place.

  • 2Matt H. 3 months ago
    Disgraceful service, probably the worst I've experienced in Germany. Food was OK. The jager schnitzel sauce is worth the 2 stars. Warm beer, the waiter couldn't care less that he repetidly got our orders wrong. Don't bother.

  • 2De W. 2 years ago
    Gerne nur noch woanders! Das Bier war zwar lecker und man wurde relativ schnell bedient. Das war es aber auch schon. Die Bedienung punktete nur mit Unfreundlichkeit. Die Küche gab weiteres mit Schnitzel mit einem Tropfen Soße und rohen Beilagen hinzu. Das Schnitzel selbst war gut. Meiner Meinung nach die Typische Touristenmelkstation nach dem Motto „Hallo, Geld und Tschüss“

  • 2Sebastian A. 2 years ago
    Bratkartoffeln fast roh keine Änderung der Speisen vor ab möglich nachher war doch möglich, sehr schade dafür brauche ich nicht ins Brauhaus. Bier ist top das Essen leider ein Flop

    (Translated by Google) The kitchen has slackened .. I always ate tartar canapés there .. now it wasn't tartar but some red-looking sausage .. for the same price (Original) Die Küche hat nachgelassen..habe dort immer Tatar Häppchen gegessen..jetzt war es kein Tatar sondern irgendeine rotaussehende Wurst..zum gleichen Preis

  • 2Emmanouil K. 1 year ago

  • 1Tanita B. 1 year ago
    Nice food and beer but such a rude waiter. He started to get loud after we ask for a additional dish of one of the menus. We understood that it is not possible but he was so rude in his response and started to shout so people looked at us as they wanted to step in to help. We have been here at 04.09.2021 around 3.30pm sitting on table 116. Name of the waiter has been Care or Cara. Hope his supervision will see this.

  • 1Fam. E. 2 years ago
    (Translated by Google) Very unfriendly service. We recently went and went elsewhere after being treated so rude by a waitress. (Original) Sehr unfreundlicher Service. Wir waren kürzlich dort und sind woanders hingegangen, nachdem uns eine Kellnerin derart unhöflich behandelt hatte.

  • 1Sebastian S. 2 years ago
    Wir fanden die Bedienung / den Service heute wirklich außergewöhnlich unfreundlich und unverschämt (und das hat auch absolut nichts mit der typisch schroff-herzlichen Köbes-Art zu tun). Statt des bestellten Radler stellte mir die Dame mit der Bemerkung "das machen wir hier eigentlich nicht" unverlangt eine Stange Kölsch und eine Flasche Limo vor die Nase - zum Selbermischen quasi. Als wäre das (ohnehin schon nahezu geschmacksneutrale) Kölsch von Sion zu heilig, um es mit Limo zu mischen... aus Gäste-Sicht echt unerfreulich unflexibel und alles andere als kundenorientiert. Beim Bezahlen wollte dieselbe Dame dann dreisterweise auch noch das komplette Wechselgeld als Trinkgeld einbehalten: wir hätten ja nichts gesagt, sodass sie davon ausgegangen ist, dass es "so stimmt"... ist klar! Liebe Touristen, nette Brauhäuser findet man in Köln besser außerhalb der Altstadt und diesen Laden kann man sich erst recht sparen.

  • 1Eric M. 2 years ago
    (Translated by Google) I cannot understand the positive reviews at all. And I am not demanding. Everything was underground. Service unfriendly, constantly smoking in a corner. Disinterest, masks hanging on the chin and not only my waitress was like that. Eating terrible. Every snack around the corner is better. Really. Without exaggerating. In addition, it was dirty. Absolutely 100% not recommendable (Original) Ich kann die positiven Bewertungen überhaupt nicht verstehen. Und ich bin nicht anspruchsvoll. Alles war unterirdisch. Service unfreundlich, ständig rauchend in einer Ecke. Desinteresse, Masken am Kinn hängen und nicht nur meine Bedienung war so. Essen ganz furchtbar. Da ist jeder imbiss um die Ecke besser. Wirklich. Ohne zu übertreiben. Hinzu kommt, das es schmutzig war. Absolut 100 % nicht weiter zu empfehlen

  • 1Florian W. 2 years ago
    Nicht zu empfehlen! Kartoffeln roh ,Fertigsoßen !Bedienungen keine Einsicht gezeigt trotz mehrfacher Beschwerden ! Das einzige gute an dem Abend war das Wetter!

  • 1Alexandru C. 1 month ago
    The worst service ever. Dessert came first after that they brought the schnitzel that was very oily and had a funny taste. No drink options, really bad wine.
