It's been a couple of years now since our last visit, we were a party of 8 and even then we said
how excellent the food and service was. The four of us were there last Sat night, table had been reserved for 7pm. Parking was no problem, there's plenty of space off to the right.
Restuarant is on the first floor, the friendly waiter took our coats etc and hung them up for us.
We we're shown to our table, the friendly smiling waitress looked after us all evening with a very pleasant manner. She was very helpful and gave us good advice when it came to choosing the wines ( red & white ) . The soup , salad and the snails in garlic butter for starters were very delicious. Main courses included fresh fish, pork medallions and geschnetzeltes - all were mouth watering - simply excellent. Dessert was the same - very high quality - to be honest I thought the Vanilla Ice with Amarena Cherries was a tad small for the price, a third ball of ice and a few more cherries would have finished off the meal perfectly! All in all we had a very enjoyable meal/evening and we will certainly be going back there probably with a larger family group.

I'm German and I can remember the times when my parents on a Sunday prepared high-quality German food, not this sh... you the in Sachsenhausen with the Applewine.

So last week, the first time I've spent a Sunday in Germany since years, I decided to take my wife to "Altes Zollhaus" since it's highly rated in the Frankfurt gourment magazine "Frankfurt geht aus" in the category "bourgoise" kitchen.

The place is a bit out of city (north) but reachable within 10 minutes from city center. It's located in an old customs house (parking lot) which is decorated a bit old-fashioned. We've been by far the youngest clients since the other once all were above 60 years of age. Also the service was old-school, well trained, as we expected it (except the waitress who reached over my plate to take my empty glass).

The food was fantastic, exactly what we were looking for: high-quality home made German high class food. As starter my wife had a German pancake soup, I had a venison pastry with Cumberland sauce and home made Walldorf salat. For main we took "Züricher Geschnetzeltes" with Rösti and a Vanison Medallion with Spätzle (home made noodes) accompanied by mushrooms and Brussels sprouts. While starters and mains were really top-notch the dessert has been max. okay.

So, if you're looking for the real German food, prepared to exelence, served in a bourgoise atmosphere - you should visit this place!

BTW- we paid € 35/person including soft drinks.
