We were here for a late dinner after a busy working day and improvised Frankfurt sightseeing. At the time "Im Herzen Afrikas" was rated #6 out of two-tousend-something restaurants in Frankfurt, so we figured that it cannot be bad and we were not disappointed. Most of the restaurants nearby were already about to close at 10pm, so there was not... More

Excellent meal , ambience outside and very inexpensive. It's also in the heart of the city close to Hauptbahnhoff and Messe.

When friends come to Frankfurt, we usually take them to this restaurant. The optimal combination of great food, extremely friendly service and: everything at a price that is more than fair! The mixed plate is always a good choice. Give it a try and don't forget to reserve a table a couple of days in advance.

It is one of several Ethiopian/Eritrean restaurants in Frankkurt. The food is authentic and the ambience is African. Give it a try !

This place has the best Ethiopian food I've ever had. You can order individual plates or large sharing plates. If you don't realize it, typical fare is eaten by scooping the meats or veggies with the special bread so there are no utensils here. The atmosphere is fun and African themed too. Highly recommend it.

I loved the atmosphere of this place and it's nice to finally find a restaurant that serves something besides your regular Greek/Italian/Spanish/French/traditional German food. Service was great, loved the specialty beers they had too.

Having grown up in Africa I always love to find African restaurants on my travels to different places around the world. Usually I leave disappointed because it never lives up to my experiences from home. This was definitely not the case at Im Herzen Afrika in Frankfurt. The entire experience was on point. The seating could have been found in... More
