This restaurant serves good authentic German food. We enjoyed the German meal seating in the open along with a tumbler of Apelwein. The food is typical German and I tried the schnitzel. Though it was a weekend the restaurant was quite full.

One of the best snitzel dishes ever had. Also tried the pork leg and spätzle, really tasty. Pleasant service. Will return for sure.

This was simply some of the best German food I've had in a long time, outside of homecooking. The schnitzel was delicious, the sides were fresh made, the gravies were light, yet favorful, and best yet - they have a great green sauce. There is a good selection of food options here, including chicken schnitzel (for those looking for a... More

We stumbled upon this gem in the old part of Sachenhausen and am so glad we did. The setting, food and service were exactly what I had hope my first meal in Frankfurt would be. The waiter was excited to explain the local dishes and since the place wasn't too crowded we had a lovely conversation with him. The schnitzel... More

Fantastic applewein bar. Located in Sachsenhausen, just off of the river, the place has a garden and tables inside. We came on a Friday night and were promptly seated at a shared table with some friendly folks. We promptly ordered two appleweins. They have English food menus so we ordered a grilled pork knuckle and a pork schnitzel with green... More

A very kind local pointed us in the direction of this restaurant and we are very thankful! We were immediately welcomed by our server as we walked through the door - the atmosphere was wonderful and warm. Our server suggested the Apple Wine for our beverage, it's an acquired taste but was very fun to try the local favorite. We... More

Their chicken schnitzel is really nice and big, great traditional German food. The Handkäse mit Musik and Apfelwein are also very nice if you want to try the famous Hessen Handkäse.

There are lots of "Apple Wine" taverns to choose from in the Sachsenhausen area of Frankfurt and we tried some during our stay. This one stood head and shoulders above all others. Wonderful communal atmosphere, pleasant interior, truly friendly and helpful staff, particularly Andreas, and above all excellent local specialties particularly the "sausage' Prices were very cheap and the apple...

I have been about 8 times to this restaurant because it truly has the best Schnitzel in town. However it is always a let down when realizing over and over again that the staff has the worst attitude I have ever encountered. I always tried to ignore it and enjoy the good food over there but after my last visit... More

My favourite traditional restaurant in Frankfurt. In my opinion, the best choice in Frankfurt to taste a real Schnitzel in typical German atmosphere!
