Nice place with reasonable prices and good staff. Good to have a date with a girl or to meet with collegues. Kind of popular among locals.

Upon asking why , we are always told that the others are reserved. I also tried to make reservation, but was told that 1) I can not pick which table I... More

Well worth a stop for a relatively cheap and quick dinner. Service was good (depending on who was looking after you)

We are English speakers with a tiny bit of German. There was a 30 minute wait on our first night and we were invited to a small bar for a drink, free of charge, while we waited. The table was ready sooner than expected. The wait staff made it very easy to order. I was hungry for a pasta dish... More

Absolutely amazing view from window onto the market, could not have picked a nicer one. If you don't like noise at night DONT stay here or ask for a back room. The staff were pleasant and the hotel restaurant was good and very busy.

I went there with three colleagues. The food was very tasty and I was satisfied. It was very lively though so don't go there if you want to talk in a silent atmosphere.

Nur wenige Minuten von Kölner Dom und Rhein entfernt liegt das XII Apostel Köln mitten in der Altstadt, die den richtigen Rahmen gibt für die XII Apostel Speisekarte. Hier findet man den milden Petrus, einen scharfen Judas oder den beliebten Paolo. Die Rede ist von der Spezialität des Hauses, den riesigen, hauchdünnen und knusprigen Holzofen-Pizzen.
