Being caught up in the Lufthansa strike we were put in the IBIS Centrum Hotel by the airline for one night. The dining provided by the hotel was just about non-existant, so I walked round the corner looking for somewhere to eat and found the Baseler Eck. Initial impressions were of a basic German restaurant - particularly as the reception... More

In Frankfurt overnight, we wanted to try some authentic german cuisine with our 3-year old and this place was on the same street as our hotel. We were quite pleased with the food and drinks, however thought the service was unpleasant and the decor very dated. It might have been fun and quirky back in the days to meet a... More

Great chicken, salat, and complimentary after dinner drinks! The owner has a small, but comfortable dining area with a traditional German feel.

I showed up solo, and was seated at a table for four in a side room. Later, the waiter asked if 2 gentleman could join me. After a while, we struck up conversation, and it was very nice to have the company for dinner. I had nice rump steak with onions and a beer. Very tasty. So happy, I managed... More

I read the terrible reviews of this place and got a bit worried whether we would get the same kind of bad attitude and service, but that's out of the box. The 5 of us came in around dinner time on an Wednesday, and right after we sat down we were greeted nicely by the waiter (or owner?) with menus,... More

We come here every year, the Monday of Frankfurt Book Fair week, as we stay nearby. It is always reliable German fare. Good for a schnitzel, home made spaetzle, pork knuckle etc. and a vat of beer. Usually full of Fair people having dinner, but they've always fitted us in.

I had the opportunity to dine at the Baseler Eck again after about a year. The place does not let you down. The food was very good, service hectic and the place was crowded as always. The quality of food has not changed and it is worth coming back again and again. We did. We dined here on three nights... More

Only a few blocks from the Intercontinental in the Wyndham grand, right next to the main river. We feel very comfortable here as a family. It has a very relaxed atmosphere in the waiters were very nice and attentive. Food was good. Must try the lentil soup, it is great!

I happily come to this restaurant each time I stay in Frankfurt. As an English only speaker I am extremely comfortable here. Service is good and food tastes great.
