Sorry, it seems I am using this headline for some of the Frankfurt restaurants, but this is Frankfurt: everyone tries to be more than they actually are. And for the Opera this is true in many ways: dishes prepared without any love, and without a story behind, but really expensive and brought to you by waiters that should not work... More

I am on occasions visiting Frankfurt for business and was, so far, unable to find an above average restaurant. Finally I discovered Restaurant Opera in the city center. What a great location. This restaurant has a very impressive “grandeur”: well-designed interior with a mix of modern and historical elements, stylish antique lighting and painted bow-ceilings (like in some churches) provide...

We, a group of friends who had not seen each other in years, selected this restaurant for a reunion lunch. It is a beautiful space in a great location. The staff were friendly and professional and the course we were served was very good. In fact, the entrecôte steak was one of the best.

A good restaurant with a varied menu. Went there with a colleague and we had a good dinner and a few glasses of wine. Waiters were polite and had the right attention even though there was a few large arrangements at the time we were there. A very classic interior.

Dear VeitchB, thank you very much for visiting and recommending our restaurant. Yes, sometimes the menu may seem slightly limited. This is only due to the fact that we try our best to avoid wasting the fresh and very valuable ingredients we use in our kitchen. Still, so far we had no guests that would not find more than they...

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

Description
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.
