Recently visited here, struggled to find somewhere high quality that wasn't just 'fancy Food'. A proper steakhouse, all steaks were cooked very well, snails for starters were also very nice. Lovely setting a real hidden gem

Best steak restaurant in Cologne - been coming here for years. Best to book as they get very busy. Be prepared to wait 30mins or so - steaks are all grilled on a charcoal barbecue!
