The portion in size wa big but most of it was too salty fries and a very small portion of cevapcici for the price. The rate of the meat itself is average and not comparable to balkan \ croation ones in thr country. I don't mind bigger prices, but the overral meal was really unsatisfaing.

We stopped here for a late lunch. The location is nice along the river. Wait staff was friendly and accommodating. The food was good but not great. There were plenty of choices and we had the wiener schnitzel. I would recommend the place but not rave about it.

It's a good Croatian restaurant situated right in front of the Rhein river in the city of Koln, with good service, prices OK and good number of options on the menu.

When going to an expensive restaurant I expect to be treated with respect and here we were not. By the time our food arrived we were all cross and just wanted to leave. As it happens the food was very good and by the time we had finished our waiter obviously realised he had not behaved well did his best... More

Having lived in Croatia for many years, we decided to visit the oldest croatian restaurant in Köln based on its numerous positive reviews here and there. We took cevapi and while the portions were über generous and the price reasonnable, we were a bit disappointed. It would not even be considered as average in Zagreb. The ajvar, on the other... More

While expecting a traditional German restaurant after a half-day of touring, this Croatian restaurant was a delightful experience. Specializing in Argentinian steak, the lamb was also delicious. We enjoyed the local Kolsch beer as well as a couple of local dishes. The lamb was prepared ideally (imported from New Zealand) and the steaks were prepared perfectly. The outdoor seating was...

Excellent location facing the river Rhine. Good menu in German and English for sea food, meat and some veggie options. We had the 'Jolly Dalmation', a steak wrapped around ham and chees and I have to say the steak was better than the steak we had in a dedicated steak house nearby. Dessert menu very limited, just ice creams really... More

On the banks of the Rhine in the centre of beautiful, historic Cologne is Slavia, a Croatian restaurant with a traditional lean. Boasting a large blue sign and lamp adorned frontage you might expect to step in to a very old fashioned interior however a major overhaul has given Slavia a modern and elegant look in warm, welcoming colours. Priding itself on providing a link between Germany and the Balkans, Slavia gives a classic taste of Croatia whilst also providing delicious international dishes too. All year round you’ll receive a warm Croatian welcome.
