You can’t come to Frankfurt without visiting a solid restaurant like this with German food. The building is beautiful. I had a delightful glass of wine with my dinner. I chose a Frankfurt sausage, mashed potato and sauerkraut. Absolutely divine!! Big thumbs up from me...More

Came for dinner with business friends. There were four of us. The food was good and was served very quickly, perhaps slightly too quickly. However it was tasty and hot. Plenty of drink options too. Very enjoyable and would come back.
