“Average, interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

Good food, not great. It is something of an odd setting, the decor is 1960's-ish. Not one of my favorites.

“Expensive and presumptuous”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2011

The food was good, dont get me wrong but I felt that the price for food was over the top for the selection. Atmosphere is fantastic in a unique zoo like setting (you hope the giraffe comes to the window) but the views of the rabbit enclosure and beyond leave something to be desired... No the giraffe doesnt come to the window but the appearance of the set up is as if he would.... Wine is even MORE expensive (generally more than 10 times what it is on the shelf purchased retail) so be prepared to have a hefty bank balance when you go there. The waiters and attendants are all superb and maybe they are trying to be the 'in' place but honestly its too far from Frankfurt or any 'hub' or centre so they should relax and provide more value for money....
