I live in cologne and knwo how a real "cologne brewery" has to be. So I can say "Früh" is more for tourist than for local. More "German brauhaus culture" for foreigner. But the food and naturaly the beer are very good. It is locatet close to down town, the river and in front of the cathedral "Kölner Dom".
So it is a good place for a break during your cologne trip.

Situated in the shadow of the Dom, Früh is a great place to soak in German brauhaus culture. It's crowded and noisy and fun. We shared a table with a father and son from Austria. We had a great conversation and enjoyed the conviviality of the people and the setting. If you want fine dining or intimacy, go somewhere else. If you want a bustling German brauhaus, it's worth a lunch.

Food was great, location is great, atmosphere is great, place was packed with people.
Loved everything about it, up until I had an argument with the waiter at the end which ruined the evening somewhat.
Here's what happened: I asked the waiter for water. He brought me a bottle of sparkling water - when I realised that I called him again and said that I would like to have still water, and he ended up charging me for both! I argued with him that he brought the wrong one, and he argued back that I should have specified.. Was quite awkward.

Früh is one of those places that you go based on it's reputation and tradition. Reality is that there are much better places to eat traditional german food. Normally it is very crowded so it is difficult to get a table and when you get one, service is poor and slow (however they are fast serving Beer). Food is ok (nothing great), and of course, the recommendation is to drink Beer! Everything is well priced. It is almost in front of the Cathedral (Dom).

Looks a bit like a bar from the front but goes back a long way with lots of tables. Waiter service. Good selection of "German" food (lots of meat and carbs) with the most expensive item on the menu about 20 Euros. The locals seem to go in for a meal and drink and are out again in 3/4 hour. The menu has an English translation (of a kind). This is not fine dining but if you want good food at realistic prices then it's a good place to go.
