I stopped here while traveling throughout Europe. I love Kolsch beer and was reccomended this place by many Germans. This place had great location, beer, and good service.

As stated before the proximity to the cathedral is nice and it is a must visit for anyone going by or to Cologne. The inside has a nice feeling as it was crowded with both the townspeople and tourists. The service was a tad slow but I realize it was because it was so busy. The only thing I remember about their food was it was larger portions. I do remember the Kolsch was excellent. This place was big with a nice authentic feel. It was somewhat pricey, but well worth it.

Whilst in a very touristy location this is still quite a nice Kölsch bar. Service was extremely attentive and after giving the impression that we may not have actually been tourists but locals it became even better and from our calculations we paid the locals’ Kölsch price and not the inflated tourists’ price. The Kölsch is nice and the decor is too however if you want to escape tourists I would look elsewhere.

Better to have a late lunch than none at all. Fruh am Dom has a very large biergarten in the front, but on a sunny and warm Saturday, all the seats were taken. No problem, we'll just head inside and sit at one of the wooden tables. It's roomy inside, and high ceiling also give that inpression.

Right off the bat, we were given a 200 ml of Fruh Kolsch. Don't expect to find any other beer, as it's the only beer served. Like in Dusseldorf, at Cologne's kolsch houses you are given small glasses of the house beer and are automatically served another one as your glass runs dry until you tell them to stop. Later on we decided on our lunch. I helped myself to a very large serving of boiled pork kunckle, which was so big it could have fed two people. Eike was really enjoying his asparagus soup and nibbling off of Daniella's entree.

One of many good spot in Cologne to hit for a beer in a good atmosphere. Oh yeah, the house beer is pretty good too.

Service is not bad, it's just always busy. Try to get a table on the ground floor if you can as the atmosphere is better. I find lunch to be more fun than dinner. The Fruh is always fresh and flowing - be sure to "abuse" your Cubis as local tradition dictates. Basically, be rude to the waiter in jest as that is the expectation - sometimes they dish out better than they get :-)

The steak tartar is nice and the cheese selections are very nice. There's a lot of traditional German food on the menu. I also reccommend getting a cask for the table if you group is a little bigger - or just thirstier as this is fun to tap the keg, a lot faster for refills, and just fresh as the day is long.
