This a real surprise.45 mins from Frankfurt overlooking the airport in the horizon.Its a unique blend of authentic Italian and Indian food! You can have either but I suggest you stick to one cuisine for the meal.

Who can resist a magic place called Merlin at a magic location like the Magic Mountain? No, we are not in Switzerland, but on a hill over Frankfurt, Germany, with a magnificent view over the Main plain. Location is certainly one good reason to go there, preferably during day light or on clear nights. Food is another good reason. The... More

This restaurant definitely has class and can boast a wonderful view of the Rhein-Main valley and the Frankfurt City skyline from atop the Zauberberg in Ruppertshain. The interior is cosy and one can sit outside on the terrace on warm summer days. Reservations are highly recommended since the seats fill up quickly. They serve great Indian and Italian dishes as...

This restaurant is not far from our home, so it has become one of our local favorites!! We recently had lunch with friends who have just moved to Kelkheim. Certainly an excellent restaurant. Merlins is operated by folks of Indian decent and this is reflected in their menu. They have a wide variety of cuisines including German, Italian and Indian.... More

Some friends suggested that we meet here for lunch today and it was fantastic. The setting (and view) is just stunning, the waiters are really friendly and the food was delicious! I am normally not a fan of places that advertise different styles of food ie German, Indian, Italian from the same menu as I always think that they can't... More

We visit this restaurant once a week and love it. The menu is Italian/Indian! They obviously have experts in the kitchen. We had tomato soup last week that made us want to come home and write a review! The fish is always great, the curries are heavenly and they will spice them up for you if requested. Families are welcome.

The restaurant lies on top of the hill in Ruppertshain. The interior is cosy but what's more important is that they have a terrace where you can sit on warm summer days. The view the the Main valley and the Odenwald is simply gorgeous and one would like the place even if the food was not so good. We usually... More
