We stayed here as part of a visit to the Cologne Christmas markets. Slightly out of town but easily accessible via the frequent tram system which stops just outside. Staff were very friendly and attentive throughout our stay. Breakfast was included and it was very nice. The freshly baked bread, selection of meats and cheese with the option of eggs... More

As they say when in Germany eat German, I looked for a restaurant serving good traditional food, WOW great food and very reasonable prices, out of town but was within a mile and what a pleasant surprise.

Lovely food from combining both German classics and regular seasonal innovations. A great choice of both open and bottled wines and friendly, attentive service complete the experience. All at a price which allows you to visit often - which we do!!

We were a party of 34 persons. The restaurant provided us with excellent food. They managed to serve us all together at the same time, and the warm dishes were warm! The service was personal and really friendly.

We chose this restaurant for a business dinner when visiting Cologne recently. The restaurant is located a little bit outside the city center but easily reachable by taxi. After we arrived I realized there is a tram station right across the road so I guess we could have used that as well. The reason we chose Adolph’s Gasthaus was partly... More

Before I start, any review is personal in nature so kindly use your own judgement and intellect. We had a stomach full of Indian delicacies for lunch. Evening we thought of ending it with the local light cuisine. So, as usual we looked up on the internet and voila – Adolph’s Gasthaus! This has such wonderful ratings, and surprisingly was... More

Great tasting food...a little rich in some dishes (with a lot of cream). Beautiful breads. I had a nice salad with Artic Char which was a bit healthier than the Shrimp pasta's or Fish/polenta. Overall solid and tasty food.
