“I have them on speed dial”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

This place is small! It's got little tables and the toilets are down a hatch in the floor, and they are on speed dial on my phone. My advice is know what you want and order 20mins before you arrive because the chef here is committed to real cooking. No deep fryer or microwave for modern convenience, just a love for the schnitzel and dumpling not heard of since Maria took to the hills of Saltzburg! The prices are very reasonable and the quality is high. It's byob and there is always someone happy to chat you through the choices, if you think German food is all stodgy potato and meat dishes and overwhelming sausages, think again!

“A wonderful find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Great little place, with simple but tasty food and a wonderful charm. We would recommend booking as there are only 4 tables, and don't be surprised to find out where the toilets are

“well impressed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

generally do not have time to write reviews but I thought this was worth. a very good restaurant experience. Me and my girlfriend went in and the service was good and the food simply amazing. There was a table of four next to us whom were not sure when they sat initially but by the end of their meal they were pleasantly suprised and commented on what a great find the restarant was.
I thought it was great too that the Chef came to check how the food was! keep up the good work will return definitely BL

“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Birthday meal for my partner who loves Germany so brought him as a surprise. Restaurant was full of German customer and then the reserved table for 2 for us. Food and service was outstanding.
Only negative is the size and the cold temperature of the place.

Will revise after the refurb.
Highly recommended!

“Excellent German Cuisine!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

As a German I know what good German food tastes like and the dishes that were served to us today at the Frankfurter Eck would be very delicious even compared to many restaurants in my home country. The service was friendly and entertaining, the atmosphere nice and homey. Food is neither cheap, nor expensive, but defintely worth its price, since of excellent quality. I can only recommend this place!
