We found this wonderful fish restaurant as we were walking along the river trying to find a good place for dinner. We wanted something different from the usual German meat-and-potatoes fare. We were glad to find that this restaurant served fish and seafood. In the beginning, we find the place to be quiet (it was Monday night), but later more people came in. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. She can speak English and helped us with the menu choices.
I had cooked prawns/gambas (large plate of 25 big unshelled prawns) in lemon-chilli spicy sauce (tasted like Thai tom yum sauce) and my friend had fried herrings with roasted potatoes and vegetables. He also had fish soup for starters, and we find the soup to be very good and quite hearty. We also ordered white wines with our meals, and the Riesling was superb. We liked the food and restaurant very much that we returned the next day for lunch.
We sat outside the restaurant, as it was sunny that day, and I had fresh herrings as starters and fried haddock fish as main meal (it came with delicious potato salad). My friend had creamy potato soup (which was very delicious, as it had bits of bacon in it) and grilled goat cheese with honey and large salad. He really enjoyed his food as well.
Overall, the food and wines were fantastic. The service was great. The interior was warm and cozy, with old/vintage photographs of Cologne on the walls; the ambience was wonderful. We will definitely returned to this restaurant whenever we visit Cologne again.
