“Great view, Stay simple with food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

We had a pre jazz club dinner here on one of those perfect fall evenings in Frankfurt. Our expectations were not high...just wanted a beer and something light. The waitress was not happy we sat down in the outdoor seating area because the kitchen was scheduled to close in 40 minutes. I did not think that this was too close to that hour and felt her attitude was inappropriate. We ordered our dinner right away, off the menu. The beers came pretty quickly and we enjoyed the view of the Old Opera building and fountain. Food was ok . We probably would not go back.

“Short menu but good variety”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

From the filet of beef to the turbot and quail, there were some very nice looking options for dinner. The quality of the food was very good as well. All three of us enjoyed the meal. Service was attentive. Nice ambiance with the view over the Opera square and park area (didn't care for the art though). A bit pricy for some items, but it was overall decent value.
We saw there was a grand piano - it must be nice if they have someone playing it. We were here on a Sunday evening, so it's not a surprise there was noone playing then. They also do a brunch.

“Great Sunday brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

The Sunday brunch is one of the best I have seen in Frankfurt. Food quality and diversity is great. In the summer you can sit on the terrace and enjoy the sun. A bit pricy (over EUR30) but worth it for a special occasion.

“A favorite for business lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

One of my favorites for business lunch. Why? Decent food, still acceptable prices, good service but the biggest plus is that you get some "intimacy" many other restaurant don't offer.

I hate to sit just 30cm away from the next table and everybody listens into the conversation you are having. KuBu is offering spacious seating, more spacious than most other places. That's the reason why more than 50% of business lunches I do with clients are booked at KuBu.

Food is good, the Wiener Schnitzel is an all time favorite and the Burger is also good (though you get slightly better burgers for less money elsewhere, but also in a more informal environment). Salads also good quality.

“Great place for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

Nice place with a bit of buzz for weekday lunch in the city. God mix of business related guests, private diners and tourists. Good food for very good value
