Beautiful place in great location

Food was great, we took schnitzels. It was traditional and surprisingly calm to eat outside though it seemed to be hectic. Service was friendly and prices were reasonable.

This is a real tourist trap. The Indian owner will reject any orders for only drinks and you will never see the kitchen which might be very good as the food is lowest quality. Prices are around 30 % more expensive as any other real restaurant with traditional food. The place it selve is nice and old but again it's... More

The Wertheim House has not only survived since the 15th century, but was also the only timber-framed building in the old part of the city to survive the World War II bombing. Although I only had a beer outside, I enjoyed the ambience (and the beer) very much.

I guess there's two ways to review this place, as a restaurant, and as a tourist attraction. Here it's listed as a tourist attraction. Haus Wertheym is Frankfurt's oldest restaurant. It was built and started in the 15th century. Today the restaurant stands close to the Frankfurter Romer. It is a reasonably pretty, mainly wooden structure which looks like it... More

Very busy on a Sunday afternoon ( maybe due to location? ). Only 1 staff but coping well. Took their signature pork knukle but quality is at best average. There must be better establishment near by?

Visited after a long and exhausting day whilst on a business trip with my husband. Food was excellent, so was wine but the coffee was absolutely the best i have had as the milk and espresso were added in ideal proportions. The host was very welcoming and pleasant. Lovely place.

If you come by to check out the only half wood building that survive the WW2 bombing you may be disappointed. However if you also plan to check out the traditional restaurant service German specialty then perhaps it makes sense after all.

Frankfurt had over 2000 "half-wood" houses prior to WWII. This was the only one that survived in a city that was 90% demolished by bombing. Today it houses a 'period' bar-restaurant. Testament to the fact that over 200 cultures live in the city today. Mine-host (Markin) is a delightful Indian gentleman serving traditional German fare. The house specialty is pork... More

Advertised as the only building to boast the original wood structure due to the World War I thouht it would be better featured...but it looks just like other, rebuilt buildings in the area. Worth a walk-by since it's right by Romer....but I wouldn't go out of your way to see it.
