The good points first - the service and friendliness were very good and the beer cracked up to what I expected. However both my wife and I found the food very average. Very much quantity not quality. There are far better local restaurants. I would avoid unless you are going there just for a drink

The 12 Apostel is not situated in Sachsenhausen, but it is what you would expect from a cozy Appelwinebar, if people living in Frankfurt recommend you to visit one. The food was good and the Appelwine by miles better than in the one visited in Sachsenhausen. The beer – they claim the first to be brewed in a restaurant in... More

Aposteln Schnitzel was flavorful and fantastic. The beer was excellent as well and service was very good. We ate here two years ago and made the trip back and was even more impressed.

My wife and I went here with our 9 month old not knowing reservations were preferred. But after eating here I understand why. There were 2 men eating at a larger table and the wait staff asked if we could share the table with them...which to an American is so awkward as we like our personal space. We said to... More

It was extremely busy on a Saturday night due to a local fair. I was dining alone on business and they accommodated me on a single table near the bar which was much appreciated. The food is genuine German style food. Many say that German food is bland and while that may be true, I am a fan of German... More

A very nice little restaurant and the food which is mostly traditional was very good. Nice ambience and not too expensive. Well worth a visit just to experience the ambience - we sat downstairs as it looked a little nicer imho. I did try the blond beer - it was fine but then it's difficult to get bad beer in... More

This is a great space to enjoy local food. They do the beer in house and you can see the cubes in the bottom floor. It is very well decorated with local items used in the countryside. The food is great with many local dishes, but not the typical ones. I think the menu is very well elaborated giving you... More

The beer cellar is warm and rustic. The food offered is solid and good. Very good indeed is their beer (bright and dark style), which they make in their own micro-brewery.

We came to the place on Sunday evening without reservation and were offered seats at the bar. The restaurant was fully occupied. We ordered local food speciality - music cheese and a set of sausages, both were of a very good quality, with the right balance of spicies. Local beer is good. Service is not bad, but you can see...
