“A Must.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Fantastic restaurant and setting which will make your trip to Frankfurt. Architecturally created to sit within the old walls of a museum with glass and steel. The Owner maître 'd and staff were just incredible and the food (3 courses 52 E) were beautiful. Wines by the glass, selected with care. Gorgeous evening.

This was my only evening in Frankfurt, therefore it was the only restaurant I was able to experience. It was so perfect, I will always view Frankfurt through this perfect lens.

“Be wowed by the room and the food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

An exceptionally beautiful restaurant-architecturally amazing with food and service to match. We had a terrific dinner there on a Sunday night, which is quiet, as most other nights there is live music and more of a club atmosphere we were told. The menu is varied and the preparation is sublime. For a fine dining experience, this is the place!

“At least 1 time to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Is a special place. Even if you don't visit the gallery, worth trying. The service is superb, as actually always here. They know how to please the experienced customer. The menu to me is a little bit " from everywhere", nothing really astonishing, a mix from all over the world. Good wine list, good choice of Rheingau Wines. Especially rislings. And , of course, their ambence- is what inspires the people to go there. Open only for evenings. A little bit overpriced. But is a place of " beau mond"

“Only open in the evening”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

I had an expensive and yet very average panini. Because the restaurant as a restaurant is only open in the evening. I wanted a lunch - I got a panini. Meh.

“Good food and Ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Holbeins have recently acquired a new head chef and the food has improved significantly !
Some great sushi now available plus some Thai dishes along with the more traditional.
I had the some Thai chicken curry, followed by the "New York Strip" burgers washed down
with a superb bottle of Numanthea from Toro.
Service as it has I have always found it very good and friendly. The restaurant is nice both
inside and out (weather permitting) Saturdays has live music too !
