One of our favourite restaurants for a closeby but great dinner - try to call ahead though since it can be busy during peak times. Don't miss out on the truffle mayonnaise fries!
Restaurant Tappo in Sülz

Our daughters love to go here for burgers - they recommend the BBQ one especially with the sweet potato fries. Vegetarian/Vegan option available. Take the 18 from the Sülzgürtel stop near us until Ebertplatz. Then simply take the 12/15 to Florastrasse (they leave from the other side of the platform which is underground so keeps you safe from the cold and rain on those days with less good weather). You cannot make reservations so a small wait may be necessary before ordering at the till and finding a seat - but it is worth it!

Traditional Cologne pubs have been closing rapidly but Dürr still survives - we have been going here for three decades. Come to this authentic pub for a relaxed Kölsch and some typical Cologne bar snacks. Just around the corner and with seating outside in the warmer summer months.

Probably the most frequented restaurant of our family and friends - the best pizza in town with a great atmosphere and very friendly service. We recommend reserving a place if you are coming with a larger group especially, although they offer takeaway as well. Try the pizza coco (with extra garlic and chilli if you like it spicy!) or the tagliata (strips of steak served to you on fire!).

This thai place is another absolute favourite in the area. You can sit and eat there whilst watching them freshly prepare the food, though we usually get takeaway and eat it at home. Favourites include number 13 (glassnoodle salad), 21 (tom yam gung soup), 35 (PhadKrapao). They also offer delivery on deliveroo: https://deliveroo.de/de/menu/cologne/sulz/chang-thai.

We love the sushi here although be aware of the lunchtime flood of people from the surrounding offices. A little bit more expensive than other nearby sushi places (e.g. bento box around the corner) but world's better as well. Perfectly located in the city of shopping, sightseeing or arts and culture days. Reservations possible and necessary. There is a second Sweet Sushi now at: Karolinger Ring 23. 50678 Köln.

Drinks & Nightlife
One of my daughter's favourite haunts - a one room Irish pub in the old part of Cologne, just around the corner from the Dom (the large cathedral in the centre of town). Friendly atmosphere and a good starting place for going out in the Altstadt (old city).

Large Irish pub offering karaoke, live music, live sport, and the necessary Guinness in the popular nightlife street Friesenstrasse. Lots of other places around to continue the night (although it does stay open late itself too).

The famous Kölner Dom - free entry to go inside and look at the beautiful architecture, the famous Richter window, and the reliquary of the Three King's. We also recommend climbing to the top and looking at the Schatzkammer (though both cost a small fee).

This is a great viewing platform just opposite the Dom at the top of a highrise building. Entry via elevator to the top is 3 euros and is the easier way to see the skyline (inlcuding the Dom) than climbing the many steps up the cathedral. http://www.koelntrianglepanorama.de/besucherinfo.php.
