“low budget-kingdom of understatement!-”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

there is no restaurant in my hometown with such a " down to earth " location , like this restaurant and meeting place of international students- same as older intellectuells - and yuppies.. its the potpourie of our town - food is cross over
tuesday -wednesday fresh fishday !-
gorgeous fish dishes for great price
try kerstins fish soup! the lady is painter
and great artist cook!
thursday - friday is another great cook gero pensioned teacher with specialized on meat- great lamb chops - rabbit- corn chicken ...
so my opinion tuesday to friday is the best time to visit the place !-
tuesday make reservation for the fish day
in frankfurt traditionally we have fresh fish from the wholesellers !
our fish varity is the biggest may be in europe ! better and cheapper then at the
cost lines in europe -
the reason is our airport !-and therefore we have specially a great amd cheaper choice of seafood then anywhere else ...
this place is authentic- even the toilets not in standard - or whatever what could be complained, but the food -the wine ( spanish 12- 14 euro bottle ) the service made by student girls from poland- georgia- brazil - germany and more countries is gorgious! the owner - italian intellectuall guy is nice- friendly ( he is not the typicall italian gastronome) so the whole athmosphere is absolute top for me!-
