“Excellent German Cuisine!”
Reviewed 7 January 2013

As a German I know what good German food tastes like and the dishes that were served to us today at the Frankfurter Eck would be very delicious even compared to many restaurants in my home country. The service was friendly and entertaining, the atmosphere nice and homey. Food is neither cheap, nor expensive, but defintely worth its price, since of excellent quality. I can only recommend this place!

“excellent German food”
Reviewed 5 January 2013

Found this place by accident. Is close to Holiday Inn Express city and close to theatreas and cinemas. Tiny, modest, friendly and owner operated. Food was magnificent - perfect desert for a birthday surprise for someone. Was quite expensive and only takes cash which is a nuisance when travelling. We were emptying out pockets to pay. Would recommend they get a credit card machine. Thats the only complaint though and if there was a sign on the door indicating this it would be good. BYO too. Would go again when visiting Edinburgh.

“sausage fest”
Reviewed 4 January 2013

Nice little place, friendly couple run the restaurant/cafe i think and the food was good and inexpensive. I would have liked to have had a bit more guidance from our server. there are not many places in edinburgh where you can find a good frank and potato salad. Bavarian breakfast will be sampled soon.

“wunderbar”
Reviewed 4 January 2013

Had heard some posotive things about frankfurter eck from a few friends so a cold january night seemed as good as time as any to check out some tasty german delights. was greeted with a warm smile and hello and sat down. The menu offers a good choice of all things bavarian with very helpful explanations from the waitress if things are a bit confusing.
We settled on some potato soup and the curry wurst for starters and a beef roulade and pork cordon blue for mains. My soup was a hearty bowl of meaty deliciousness. perfectly seasoned and packed with vegetables. My girlfriends curry wurst was also excellent. top quality sausage, tanngy lightly spiced sauce with fresh baked pretzels to accompany.
Our main courses were sublime. The cordon blue was perfectly crisp on the outside and so tender and juicy on the inside, this was accompanied by freshly made spatzle (german noodles). my beef roulade was devine. Like a beef olive but with fried onions, gherkin and other delights in the middle. this was accompanied with red cabbage and dumplings all doused in rich gravy.
All in all very delicious, great service, and extreamly filling. The food and excellent service really deserves a better venue. If you are going the place is not liscenced but BYOB so bring a nice red to really complete your meal.

“Another excellent visit”
Reviewed 6 December 2012

It was my second visit to the Frankfurter Eck within a month, this time for a quick pre-theatre dinner. The food was outstanding. I would like to go there once a week for my dinner - the ecxellent value prices would certainly allow for it. Thank you for bringing excellent German Hausmannskost to Edinburgh. We will be with you all the way!! Here is to finding bigger premisea soon :)
