5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Certainly top 5. And in Frankfurt of all places! Margarete has both a cafe/bar in the front, and a restaurant and terrace in the back - we ate in the restaurant. The food was fresh and inventive. Some of the components of dishes seemed crazy at first (grilled watermelon? savory olive oil ice cream? candied olives?) but each plate came... More

The restaurant is a great find. A colleague of mine booked it as a recommendation and we were not let down. Decor is lovely, very slick and minimal. Food is beautiful (and great portions!) and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Would definately go back here if I visited Frankfurt again

We were a group of 5 people. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable. I had winter cod which was perfectly done and I loved the flavours. The food is pricey but definitely worth the money. The atmosphere is very relaxed. The only negative point I have to make is the long wait for our food, which was well over... More

We had a wonderful dinner here with great, friendly, informative service and many delicious dishes and nice wine. The prices were fair for the quality of the food, which was inventive and featured lots of interesting (but not unnecessarily outlandish) pairings of ingredients. I have to eat gluten-free food, and our server (who spoke fluent English and German) was very... More

Usually im a fan of Margarete. Nice location, quiet but still relaxing vibe. However, this was my first time having breakfast there. It was terrible ( long story short). We were group of 3 arrived at 11 am, got our dishes at 11:50. Still it was OK, but my scrambled eggs was cold. ( maybe it was left on top... More

We really enjoyed this place. It's quite pricey, but the wine list is very promising and affordable. Looked like it's quite popular between the locals as well. We had a three course meal that was really enjoyable and we left happy. Service was great too, nothing to complain about. There were two waitresses and the place was full, therefore they... More

This place had some great italian food and pumpkin soup. It had a limited menu, but it was a good selection with several options. It was also in a convenient location, but the service was slow. It was crowded so I'll give them a break and definitely try them again.

My friends and I often like to sit in a nice cafe and read/write/study from time to time and we picked this place as it's slightly more up market to the places we usually go. We sat at the front bar (sitting and having a full meal here is probably too expensive for us - you're looking at around 50... More

This restaurant has a casual bar/cafe area in the front and a more refined seating area in the back. I have eaten in the back area twice now, had drinks in the front once and I would certainly go back to both. I think the menu is different between the back and front of the restaurant. I prefer the back... More
