I've been there this last weekend with some friends. The place is very nice and the building is awesome. The service was quite good but the price is high. Beers cost almost double than in other touristic places in Frankfurt.

今天點了豬腳、cappuccino和cherry waffle,真的很不錯!我本來以為觀光區不會有什麼好吃的,沒想到竟然在德國遇見例外~而且在waffle裡吃的一種很特別的水果,叫visales frucht,好吃!而且cappuccino 也很好喝~尤其是那一小顆黑糖球~讚!推推~~~~ Please give it a try, it's definitely better than what u had expected! :)

Great place to sample good German fare and people watch as folks walk around Ziel. Very nice menu with regional dishes. Big fan of the Pig Hock and the buffal mozzarella salad. The Frankfurt platter is great as well. Nice outdoor seating in good weather

we had krantz cake, Apple shtroudle and waffle ice-cream and cherry marmalade. the krantz was a bit disappointing, dry and the cream a bit heavy. the apple shtroudle and the waffle were absolutely delicious!!! must try the waffles! the stuff are quick and friendly. the location is excellent.

This was a great place to spend our last night in Germany. It was a very cold night and we were visiting the Christmas market when we spotted this place in the middle of the square and decided to check it out. We sat outside in a covered patio area where there were blankets to wrap our legs and heaters... More

It's cold today in Frankfurt so I needed to warm up. Very friendly staff that speak very good English (lucky for me because I don't speak German), I had good expresso and a beer. Nice relaxing place to pass the time.

The food was so good we came twice. Great Schnitzel. Great Waffles. Friendly and efficient service. Really nix mix of local and tourists. Young, old. Gay, straight. Just a really good atmosphere.

Centrally located above Hauptwache station this restaurant was an obvious choice for dinner while exploring the city on our first evening in Frankfurt. The food was traditional German fare - think sausages, carbs and kraut. Delicious and hearty we all enjoyed our meals but to be honest, that sort of food is very hard to get wrong! Quite pricey too!... More
