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.

The wait staff are quite attentive, arriving when needed but quickly retreating when the particular service is done. All very much appreciated as I do so dislike restaurants where the staff hover around you as if rushing the guests to be done. Location is great, very easily accessible by subway (the Alter Oper stop). The food - good but not... More

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

Located on the second floor of opera house, beautiful venue, with traditionnal, high celling dining room and great sunny terasse. A simple but good cuisine, more lunch than dinner time. We had delicious Wiener schnitzel with asparagus, very good and cooked to perfection. Wine list is surprisingly unsophisticated, with none of high quality German Riesling, just mainstream production. Still, great... More
