    Dauth-Schneider: Sachsenhausen: German

    by antistar Written May 19, 2015

    If you are looking for good, hearty German food in Sachsenhausen, this place is as popular with the locals as it is the tourists. Typical food is meat doused in sauce and served up with sour apfelwein, but there are a few German inspired vegetarian dishes and some food from nearby Germanic regions, like Austria and the Alsace. The place is big with long communal wooden benches and a beer-hall feel.

    Zur Golden Kron: A traditional German restaurant

    by Nemorino Updated May 3, 2015

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Update 2015: This restaurant is currently closed, but is scheduled to re-open under new management (and with a renovated and expanded kitchen) in June 2015.

    Every year the Kron lands near the top of the list in the local restaurant ratings in the category gutbuergerlich, which means traditional German cooking. (The ratings are published annually under the title Frankfurt geht aus by the magazine Frankfurt Journal.)

    Do some cycling or jogging first, to work up a good appetite, and in the winter don't forget to phone up and make a reservation, because they only have seating for sixty people inside, and the place is often full. In the summer chances are better, because they have sixty more seats out in the courtyard. As befits a traditional place like this, most of the tables seat six to eight, so if your party is smaller than that you will usually share a table with other people.

    With the menu they will often hand you a miniature blackboard, about ten by ten inches, with the specials of the day written in white chalk. These little blackboards (slates) were used in earlier times by German schoolchildren for writing practice, so as not to waste paper.

    Favorite Dish: The daily specials are usually really good (the other day it was fresh chanterelles, and last week it was asparagus with prawns and Sauce Hollandaise), but so are the normal items on the menu.

    You can get one of their regional dishes for as little as EUR 9.90, but I usually end up paying EUR 15.90 because I can't resist their lamb specialties, like the lamb medallions with fried potatoes, broccoli, almonds and almond butter. Or one of the fish dishes, like the salmon filet on spinach leaves or the fried monkfish medallions with lobster sauce.

    Mama Kim: Korean food delights

    by MichaelFalk1969 Written Oct 21, 2014

    Mama Kim is a Korean restaurant which serves vegetarian, fish or beef-based menues with several "tapas-like" courses. Each course in itself is just the right size so you can sample many different Korean dishes without stuffing yourself. This is one of my favourite restaurants in Frankfurt and highly recommended.

    Favorite Dish: The "Mama Kim"-set menu

    Destino Tapas Bar: Great Tapas, a bit trendy

    by DSwede Written Oct 20, 2014

    Getting out into the more residential neighborhoods, food become must less touristy, thereby generally increasing the quality and decreasing the price. This tapas bar is a pretty trendy and popular spot, so the prices might not be so low, but the quality and experience was great.

    Its popular, particularly on weekends, so if you're planning on dining during prime hours, a reservation would be recommended. Otherwise, you may have to wait 30 minutes.

    The restaurant is relaxed, yet elegant so it can be either a romantic, casual or a business place.

    Favorite Dish: We could not make up our mind, so we just went with the sampler. It was very well prepared, with different meats, cheeses, vegetables, etc. It was more than the two of us could eat.

    Schweizer's: Good modern food and ambiance

    by DSwede Written Oct 12, 2014

    I came here a simple rason, a friend who works nearby recommended it. It lived up to the reputation. It is a regular sized place, neither too big nor small, but it is popular, so can fill up quickly in the busy hours.

    The menu is reasonably priced with good size portions, but the decore is a little more sophisticated than the prices would imply. Its casual for friends, but elegant enough for a date.

    Favorite Dish: There's a good selection of beers, wines and cocktails. It is a bar and cafe after all.

    But the food was also quite good. There are some more traditional dishes like the schnitzel, a few dishes with Frankfurt's 'green sauce', but there are also some pasta dishes, large salads and roasts. I'd go back again.

    Weinbau R. Zöller: Unsuspecting Wine Hut & Restaurant

    by GracesTrips Updated Aug 29, 2014

    In the wine region of Germany, the various vineyards/restaurants take turns on when they are open. This cooperation helps promote business for everyone. So, a wine hut/restaurant may be open for 2 months out of the year only. I'm not sure if this particular one we went to is part of that cooperation because they served a large variety of wines. The food served is secondary to the wine.

    This place is frequented by my boyfriend's parents. It's close to their home. Sorry, I don't have an address. I tried to locate it on the internet but couldn't find it. I will ask my boyfriend later. He will at least know what town this is located in.

    By the way, the wine was wonderful, especially the Müller-Thurgau.

    Der Weinhof: Seasonal Dining showcasing local Wine

    by GracesTrips Updated Aug 29, 2014

    On the outskirts of city are some beautiful rural towns. The region southeast of Frankfurt is wine country. In this area, the vineyards take turns opening up seasonal dining and wine drinking experience to make sure all the vineyards have an opportunity to a decent income. We dined at this wonderfully, picturesque place and the food was amazing. So, was the wine! I took every advantage I could on this trip to eat white asparagus because, it too, is seasonal and absolutely delicious. I ordered some that was served with potatoes and Hollandaise sauce. That by itself was a meal! My boyfriend ordered what looked like a meatfest served with sauerkraut and potatoes. Dining on the veranda was wonderful!

    Alt-Oberurseler Brauhaus: Outdoor Patio Dining, Local German Cuisine

    by GracesTrips Updated Aug 29, 2014

    We had some very tasty meals here. I can't begin to tell you the names of the dishes we ate but I have pictures and it was all terrific. My boyfriend ordered a dish he likes very much that has no meat. It comes with hard boiled eggs, potatoes, tomato slices and a creamy herb sauce garnished with chives. Very good! I ordered what seemed like a crisy pasta dish with lots of cheese and chives. It was a lot of food!

    The outdoor setting is very nice and casual. There were quite a few people there. That tells me many people enjoy dining here. During the month of May, white asparagus is in season and absolutely delicious. If you get a chance, you should try it - usually, prepared with Hollandaise In German, it's Spargelkarte.

    Metzgerei Häuser: Quick and Delicious German Grub!

    by GracesTrips Updated Aug 29, 2014

    Most of the food is already cooked up and you can view just about all of it. Pick and choose what you would like. After we visited the Schloss Johannisburg castle, we walked into the town area and came upon this place to have a bite. It was really good. I'm not sure exactly what we ate but the potato salad was warm with cauliflower and carrots in it. As you can see from my pic, we also had a bratwurst and a breaded potato meat dumpling (I think). I believe this is the Germans answer to "fast food". I would definitely seek this out again for another little nibble!

    Stadt Frankfurt in Rüdesheim am Rhein: Wonderful German Cuisine & Ambience

    by GracesTrips Updated Aug 29, 2014

    My boyfriend's parents insisted that we have lunch in the town of Rüdesheim am Rhein. So, we stopped into this restaurant and it was great! I ordered the mushroom schnitzel which was delicious! My boyfriend ordered sauerbraten and potato dumplings. We had some great beer, too!

    Enjoyed the comfortable setting, quaint ambience and good service, too!

    Meat Us: City: Burgers

    by antistar Written Aug 9, 2014

    A new favourite in the burger bar craze that's taken over Frankfurt in recent years is Meat Us. It has an American Diner vibe, with a single row of wooden bench tables along a checkered floor, and a long bar lined with stools. The service is fast and friendly, even at busy lunchtimes, and the food is very tasty. There's even vegetarian options and the chili sauce is actually hot.

    The Fox and Hound: THE British Pub in the Rhein/Main area

    by Airpunk Written May 24, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A real gem of a pub in Frankfurt's city centre! This pub celebrates English Pub culture with classic pub food, Premier League on TV and – real ale! Yes, these guys have their own real ale (Black Fox) on tap as well as a couple of bottled ones. Of course, there's also the usual stuff known from Irish pubs in Germany: Local and international largers, Guinness and different brands of cider. Surprisingly, they also have the local cider – Aebbelwoi.
    A good choice of classic British pub food (fish & chips, pies etc.) and Indian Pub food (curries, chicken jalfrezi etc.) is offered, together with a handful of German/International dishes. The audience consists of local bankers during the week, the party and expat crowd is rather found in the evening and on weekends. On a saturday afternoon it was however surprisingly quiet for the Premier League and Bundesliga matches. Only five guys and staff in the pub – still we had fun. Kudos for the guys for giving me an extra screen for the Werder Bremen game in a Frankfurt pub!
    Fox and Hound is not the place for a British stag party – but for Germans, Brits and everyone from all over the world who really appreciates good old English pub culture!

    Tong King: Nordend: Vietnamese

    by antistar Updated Feb 3, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wonderful Vietnamese food, beautifully presented, and extremely good value, especially for Frankfurt. The sauces are incredible, the vegetables fresh, and the all the little pots and dishes they serve the food up in is fantastic.

    You are offered chop sticks, and it's arguable whether you will look less ungainly fiddling with implements you are not accustomed to, or trying to stick a big fork into a dainty little food dish. I'd recommend chop sticks, personally.

    The only downside for me is the choice of vegetables, which felt a bit Europeanised and the location, which is just off one of Frankfurt's busiest roads. The food came quick, and was eaten nearly as fast, so you don't have to hang around too long if the traffic is heavy.

    The price is also perfect for a quick lunch. They also have midday specials which work out at about five euros. Amazing enough at that price, but they also include a free bowl of soup.

    Update: It's changed it's name to Tong King.

    Favorite Dish: The tofu is perfect.

    Bonsai Kitchen: Nordend: Vietnamese

    by antistar Written Feb 3, 2014

    A short walk outside the city centre is a small, family run Vietnamese kitchen with good value, freshly made dishes. I'm not an expert on Vietnamese food, but this kitchen seems to be the most authentic looking and tasting menu I've seen in Germany. It's one of my favourites, and I would go there more often if not for the occasional accident in the kitchen leading to smelly clothes in the office for the rest of the afternoon.

    Pizzeria Romanella: Westend: Italian

    by antistar Written Feb 3, 2014

    This is a pleasant and traditional Italian restaurant in a quiet spot in the Westend. It's popular with business lunchers in their business suits, but the atmosphere is relaxed and the food is excellent. It's called a pizzeria, but the pasta is also very good. Prices are a little high for the size of the dish, but I think the quality is high enough to be worth the extra.
