“The Schnitzel "Wiener Art" (Wienerschnitzel) is out of this world!”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

Frank und Frei is in the heart of the Schanze, which is at the pulse of Hamburg's young and happening lifestyle. The Schanze has everything from Beatles memorabilia (they spent some time here during their beginnings in Hamburg), to eclectic shops, to every type of music and dance club you can imagine. Frank und Frei fits right into the Schanze lifestyle, and it is packed not only on Friday and Saturday evenings, but almost every day of the week as well. It is very popular due to it's varied menu (anything from pizza to chili - American sytle - to nachos to Wienerschnitzel), large drink selection, and oversize screen that is always playing a football game in season. And it's reasonable, too! My favorite is the schnitzel with champignon (mushroom) cream sauce and bacon; it is to die for!!! I haven't had anything I didn't like at Frank und Frei, and I make it a point to get there at least a couple of times a week when I am in town.

“Relaxed place... Rather for drinks or a snack”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

Situated in the lively Schanzenviertel It is one of the many places there, which is mostly packed with crowds, rather a mix of different people, which is nice. For food I have to say, we first received the wrong dish, then too fast the right one, which was strange, as I suppose the gravy was scrapped off instead of making a new dish....and yes, we found onions from before afterwards in the mushroom gravy. Steaks were not as good as recommended and for what they delivered too pricy as well. Only good part was the service was very friendly, but then again at times hard to catch. Go for drinks and bring some time. Don't go in a rush or when you have a time limit and stick to basic dishes....their curry sausage and fried potatoes are fantastic....

“Good food in a nice place”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

Ordered a Schnitzel with Bratkartoffeln (friend potato slices), the portion was huge and very good.

Staff was also very friendly, prices are reasonable and normal for Germany. Also located in a lively area that invites for a walk with lots more trendy and traditional restaurants and cafes

“Wonderful place ! Good service!”
Reviewed 18 November 2012

We had both breakfast and lunch here. Good atmosphere ! Good service! Nice price. The breakfast was just good coffee as much as you want . We enjoyed us here. The eggs and the bread were fresh . Inside a sort of Art Deco interior that could use a redo
