    RESERVATIONS!!!

    If you don't like the Köbesse (Kölsch for "beer waiter with an attitude") packing you like sardines into the few non-reserved tables for the evening, you'd do well to make an advance reservation or time your meal so that you're done by 19:15 (7:15PM).

    Other than that, the kölsch (Peters) is delicious - truly one of the finest in all of Cologne (along with Mühlen).  I recommend the Himmel un Ääd, which means Heaven and Earth, a reference to the two kinds of "apples" in the dish.  The dish consists of black pudding served with potatoes (in Cologne dialect, known as "Äädappel", or "earth apples") and apple sauce (which, come from trees, and thus, from the sky, "Himmel").  All you need to know is that it was DELICIOUS!!!

    Less recommendable, at least for my palate, was the Rheinische Soorbrode (Rheinisch Sauerbraten).  I was stuck between either eating dry meat, or using the gravy that just didn't taste good to me.

    They do take cards, so that helps if you're a tourist.  Many places in the Altstadt don't, so beware!

    Great place to stop for drinks or for dinner on a Tuesday evening when the potato pancakes "flow."  Applesauce?  Smoked salmon?  Other delicious toppings await you.

    Of course--when in Koln, try the Kolsch beer.  And here it runs tasty and cold as they come.  Snag one of their custom-made coasters and call it a day while listening to the Koln Dom bells...

    Traditional German Brauhaus with great tasting food but extremely rude servers.  Maybe it was a language barrier thing but are guy just flat out sucked.  That is why the 3 stars.  So know going in that you will get shotty service and then the taste of the food will reward your patience.  Recommend the baked leg of pork was filing and tasty

    Peters Brauhaus was first opened in 1554 as "Zum Kranz" and they where then already brewing the Peters Kölsch beer. This is a great place to sit on the long wooden tables and watch the locals and interact with the real Cologne lifestyle. The Kölsch (beer) is one of the best ones I tasted so far and the food is fabulous, heavy, home style and real comfort in generous portions. I had a boiled pork knuckle (Eisbein in Bavaria) with Sauerkraut, wonderful. By the way, if you go to a Brauhaus, beer is brought regularly to your table without need to order, they also only stop once you can't see above the table anymore or you ask them to do so...

    On the website they have a good guide to how a Brauhaus works, what and how to order etc.
