Good traditional Apple Wine Bar

This is a great place, very traditional with nice friendly service, good beers and lovely wines. It has a warm atmosphere and long benches reminiscent of German Beer halls. The food is good, very down to earth traditional fare ( don't go if you are counting calories or don't like meat!)

A very kind local pointed us in the direction of this restaurant and we are very thankful! We were immediately welcomed by our server as we walked through the door - the atmosphere was wonderful and warm. Our server suggested the Apple Wine for our beverage, it's an acquired taste but was very fun to try the local favorite. We... More

Their chicken schnitzel is really nice and big, great traditional German food. The Handkäse mit Musik and Apfelwein are also very nice if you want to try the famous Hessen Handkäse.

There are lots of "Apple Wine" taverns to choose from in the Sachsenhausen area of Frankfurt and we tried some during our stay. This one stood head and shoulders above all others. Wonderful communal atmosphere, pleasant interior, truly friendly and helpful staff, particularly Andreas, and above all excellent local specialties particularly the "sausage' Prices were very cheap and the apple...

I have been about 8 times to this restaurant because it truly has the best Schnitzel in town. However it is always a let down when realizing over and over again that the staff has the worst attitude I have ever encountered. I always tried to ignore it and enjoy the good food over there but after my last visit... More

My favourite traditional restaurant in Frankfurt. In my opinion, the best choice in Frankfurt to taste a real Schnitzel in typical German atmosphere!

We came here with friends from out of town to have some tradition German dinner. The atmosphere was cosy, the seating consisted of wooden benches and tables - very old German style pub/bar like. I ordered a käse Spätzle and wished I never did! Portions were large but was overall tasteless, even after adding a ton of salt! It was... More

Great place in Frankfurt to have a taste of traditional German cuisine! Had dinner as a corporate group of about 40. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience, watching world cup as we ate and made lots of noise.The staff were very attentive and keen in their order taking. Remarkable for such a large group. The bathroom facilities were quite clean with nice... More

We asked some tapas before dinner but it took long time to get and the quality was so poor that we gave up. Avoid if possible.
