Best Ganz in a long time

We went to the Wasserweibchen for my birthday and it was a great experience. A very old style German restaurant. We ordered the goose which was great.

Took a business group here including clients on recommendation of a local. We decided on local German cuisine and this hit the mark. Following a considerable wait for foot - interrupted by several drinks - I received the sausage 'circle' ( not its real name of course!) and sauerkraut ... As hoped for this was the German experience sought after... More

Very traditional restaurant with a good choice of food at very reasonable price. The restaurant must be looked for, is little bit away from the main street but the detour is worth the food quality offered. Because of the summer evening (quite warm) an area in the castle garden was reserved for the guests.

We asked at the Hotel desk for a restaurant that locals would visit, not so much a tourist place and this was it. Although it is near the castle, it's on a residential street and a little hard to find. The name means

As soon as we walked through the restaurant door, we felt the warmth and then when we sat at our table we felt the “Gemütlichkeit.” We were seated in a small room of the Wasserweibchen whose walls were decorated with pictures, dolls, plates and other such things; the lighting was subdued but not too dark and the 4 tables were...

Just been there yesterday night - had a typical German seasonal dinner with an excellent salad as an Appetizer, goose with red cabbage, dumplings, Sauce etc. as the main course plus vanilla icecream, plums and "Kaiserschmarrn" as a Dessert. Good South African red wine with it and a "Schnaps" after the Dessert. Very nice cozy atmosphere - Restaurant is not... More

I make a point of eating here every year during the October Frankfurt book fair - it's a can't-miss for me and my colleagues/friends. It's a bit noisy and crowded, but the food is worth it. There is an English version of the menu, and the staff is helpful. Be sure to make a reservation; this place is always hopping!... More

Too bad this place is now over an hour away from us as we would be going here all the time. It was so good the we went there the next night. The pork medallions with potatoes was just incredible. The service was great and very friendly. We had no problems asking about items on the menu. However the German... More

This historic building in front of schloss Bad Homburg is 20 minutes northwest of Frankfurt. Stefan and his staff offer a unique menu with a wide range of selections with charming small village ambiance. Don't miss my favorite dessert the kaiserschwarm served with ice cream and seasonal fruit topping. It's a sure stop here each time I am in Frankfurt... More

Good restaurant, nice atmosphere, only a bit noisy. Typical German food well prepared. Home cooking in the historical Zum Wasserweibchen building. The menu available also in English, includes fantastic dishes, such as the beef with Frankfurt green sauce (Grüne Soße) and Kaiserschmarrn, the dessert of the Kaiser (the Austrian emperor Franz Joseph I). "No pleasure is temporary because the impression... More
