Chill out and relax on one of the dark-coloured upholstered chairs or on one of the white high chairs. Sip a cocktail such as a mojito, a Milky Way or a ginger gin - or go for a whiskey or glass of fine wine. After dining in one of the restaurants, business people and the trendy in-crowd like to head off to the bar to round off the evening. Look out for white illuminated bird which is behind the long bar. The staff are friendly and professional and offer service with a smile.

We had our lunch on the balcony and basked under the sunshine. The restaurant is beautiful and the staff are first-class. The menu is simple but you will find something very tasty on it that will suit you. Must try restaurant in Frankfurt even if just for the view. Try the mango and ginger cocktail too!

The location on the first floor of the Opera house is excellent. In summer time the terrace overlooking the Opera square is very pleasant to dine in, the settings are very elegant although bit baroque but: 1) food quality is average. In Frankfurt you can find much better restaurants. The cuisine pretends to be high-level, gourmet but my dish was... More

Dear Guido D, thank you very much for visiting our restaurant and giving us your feedback on the stay.

This may explain why it took what felt like 5 minutes to... More

I went there for lunch and I had a great time. Good selection of food, beautiful interior and nice service. This place reservation is a must. I called one month before to get a table. I recommend for a family sunday brunch

It is difficult to understand any negative review of this lovely, intimate, and delicious restaurant. The service was impeccable. it was mushroom season and the related dishes were extraordinary. Our wait staff was attentive - pour our own wine? - absurd. We were greeted with champagne of our choice (Rose).The wine (2010 white Bordeaux) was poured graciously and our glasses... More

We spent a great evening at Opera Frankfurt. We ordered salad with shrimps and goat cheese as appetizer and gnocchi and some kind of ravioli in a soup. It was all delicious and the portions were enough. The service was very good, staff more than friendly, we listened to some live piano music which made a beautiful atmosphere on the... More

Very particular place, located inside the Opera House at Frankfurt. The environment is great, the room is wonderfully decorated. Food was great, I had Argentinian meat and it was very well cooked. The only problem was a very slow service. It took us 2 hours and half for a dinner of four people. I cannot judge the price since I... More

This restaurant is stunningly situated inside a beautiful and historic building. The dining room is classically elegant and one can almost imagine oneself in a Degas painting - except that the lighting gives an ambience better suited to business dinners than to romantic rendezvous. Fortunately I was with a work crowd and we could all see and hear each other,... More

This evening, we decided to revisit the restaurant Opera again. We had nice memories and were delighted to get a table without a reservation right away.
