Very convivial atmosphere, solid echt Deutsch food in Sachsenhausen. Not great for vegetarians - the speciality is pork knuckle (schweinshaxe) served with sauerkraut and seriously good mash.

We recently went to Frankfurt and were invited to this restaurant for a company dinner. The place is typical German environment and not foriegn visitor friendly. The food was the only saviour.
