“Authentic Frankfurt Place with great atmosphere”
Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

I was in this restaurant yesterday and I really enjoyed it. Authentic food, great atmosphere, very good service. This is real local German place, where the locals meat and enjoy the food and own company. In my opinion this is the place where you can explore real Germany you have to there as this place have nothing to do with tourist place, which you can find everywhere in the world.

“Authentic Old Frankfurt”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

This is one of the few places in Frankfurt-Sachsenhausen which managed to keep it's tradional way. If you are looking for a typical "apple-wine" place, that's the place to go. You even might find there someone, who's actually grown up in this part of town.
It's all the way like it used to be about 50 years ago: The furniture, the dress of the waiters and the food. The prices changed, of course.
One of their special foods is called "Tartar". It's raw minced beef mixed with a raw yellow of an egg plus onions and a lot of spices.
I didn't dare to eat it, but a lot of people say, it's tasting very well.

“Meat Feast”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

I ate here during a Pan-European conference as part of a group of about 30.

In my experience the normal service tends to drop off when you are a group booking , but the service here was good and our group managed to utilise their entire stock of foreign language menus.

The menu is a little biased towards meat with a broad selection of various Wurst and unusual cuts of meat. We opted for the Franfurt platter which had just about everything on the menu included. The food, like the Restaurant is very traditional and Ithought was very reasonable.

This is an Old and authentic Franfurter tavern. You get meat and Saurkraut and Apple wine. They do what they do very well, If you are expecting fine dining , go elsewhere

“Authentic German food/ambience”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Met our German friends here for dinner. There were six of us and we had just arrived in Frankfurt from our home in Vancouver. The restaurant is located in the Sachsenhausen neighbourhood of Frankfurt am Main. Easily accessible by train. Very old German restaurant that specializes in local cuisine. If you looking for authentic German food at reasonable prices in a German atmosphere then this is a good place. Of course, drink the apflewein with soda. They have a great selection of schnapps so finish your meal with these tasty alcoholic treats. Many tables. Make reservations perhaps as it was pretty busy on a Saturday night.

“Authentic taver in Frankfurt”
Reviewed August 28, 2012 via mobile

This is a great place for atmosphere as the ambience, service and costumers could not be more authentic and genuine. It's a pleasure for that. The food is very simple and very meat-oriented (quite heavy actually) but I guess it reflect the authentic local cuisine. I would not go back bu I am glad I have been there!
