The place is interesting, you sit in the sand in a kind of tent but the food was awful... Sorry, not my taste at all. Bread is not a real bread, meat was without any taste, salsa too spicy. Nice service but the kitchen is not for my taste...

We went to this place after visiting the English Theatre nearby and it rounded off a thoroughly enjoyable evening with friends perfectly. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, even extending the opening hours of the kitchen to serve latecomers from the theatre. The food is very tasty, original and very reasonable in price. I liked the experience of stretching... More

We keep coming back to "Im Herzen Afrikas", for the delicious Eritrean food, friendly staff and unique atmosphere, and often when we have friends visiting from out of town. The food might not be as authentic as in other Eritrean/Ethiopian restaurants, but it is always tasty and flavorful, and always served in a friendly way. The decor is creative and... More

We enjoyed the stay at Herzens Afrikas and really felt to be somewhere else but Germany. The food was nice and simple served. Personally, the african spices are not our favourite but we still go there to enjoy the delicious banana creme!

Went there on a Monday evening with no reservation. The place was almost full but we just had to wait for 5 minutes to get seats. Staff was very kind and helpful. Nice atmosphere with low lights, even lower chairs and sand on the floor. Had the "mixed" plate for 2 where you choose two meats and three greens from... More

What a delight! This is a popular restuarant, so make reservations. They have a "tree house" for a group of 3 or less (or more if you're small people!). They also have a mud hut which can fit a larger group. Can be confusing because there are two parts, both take reservations. We went in the first one we came... More

The staff here are friendly and fast. We had no reservation but they happily squeezed us in without any hassle or wait. We had a share platter which was filled with completely delicious food - the ocra lamb was particularly excellent. You eat everything with your hands and some pancake-like flatbread to scoop it up with. The honey wine was... More

We were fed up of having sausages. And German beer. So we wanted a change. We tried this place. Wow they had two parts of the Resturant. Bar side was very elegant. With tree houses and special African style decorations. We felt we are in Africa. Staff is friendly. For mail meals and beer we spent only 25€. The food... More

We came here the day before we left Frankfurt, having seen it fairly at the top of the restaurant rankings on TripAdvisor. Not knowing what to expect at all we found it to be one of the, if not the most interesting restaurants we've ever been to. The Service was excellent; Got there, seated within seconds, menu within 2 minutes... More
