My ratings are context sensitive. Nobody should assume that this is one of the best restaurants you will eat at. But if you want to eat at a quintessentially Frankfurt neighborhood restaurant, this is a great choice. For what it is worth, it is a Rick Steves recommendation and being that I am a groupie, that is how I found it. I put myself in the hands of the bartender. I drank the beer he recommended. Ate the cheese and vinegar appetizer, which he explained should be eaten with a knife, not a fork. And had the schnitzel with green sauce. Nothing was great given my American palate, but I had a nice experience and the staff was great.
