“Schweinshaxe and schnitzel are GREAT!”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

Atschel is one of the restaurants that made us love German cuisine. The schweinshaxe (pork knuckle) and schnitzel were absolutely fantastic and we definitely want to go there again if we'll be in Frankfurt!

We went to Atschel for a late lunch on a weekday during our stay in Frankfurt based on the good reviews in Tripadvisor. We hadn't eaten any schweinshaxe in the previous six days of our first Germany trip, so we wanna find a good place to try the schweinshaxe - and we definitely made a good choice!

The schweinshaxe in Atschel was nicely roasted with a super crispy skin and soft meat. It was absolutely delicious and I finished the whole schweinshaxe! We tried schweinshaxe in another restaurant nearby afterwards and we could conclude that Atschel did serve a tastier schweinshaxe.

We also ordered the Frankfurter Schitzel mit Grüne Sauce and it was also fantastic. The schitzel was nicely fried and the highlight was the Frankfurt Green Sauce. This fresh green source made the fried dish less oily and tastier.

Atschel is on the other side of the Main River (cf. the Romans) but it's quite close to Eiserner Steg (<15 minutes by walk if you know the way) and it's easily reachable by tram (Textorstraße, Line 16 from Frankfurt Hbf). If you're visiting Frankfurt and wanna try good German food, you should definitely go for this.

“Great atmosphere - German style”
Reviewed 21 September 2013

Loved the place. It was my first time in Germany and Atschel made an impression.

It's a bustling, rowdy sort of place where beer-drinking German men laugh heartily and one can simply let loose and have a good time with friends. I loved that down-to-earth atmosphere of Atschel, and to top it off, they serve fantastic food and drinks!

I loved the trademark Frankfurter Schnitzel, as well as the unique apple wine served in the bembel. The schnapps were great too. Seems like there's hardly anything about the place I wasn't pleased about.

Highly recommended - go eat, drink and be merry with friends!

“Friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

We went on a Friday night, which tends to be the busiest. We arrived around 18:30 hrs without a reservation and managed to grab a table to ourselves between the main part of the restaurant and the garden, most reservations are from 20:00 hrs so that is plenty of time. They serve the second best Haxe in Frankfurt in my opinion, fantastic value and very good Apfelwein. Well worth a visit, but if you want to take your time definitely book a table a few days before.

“Perfect Local Experience”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

The staff was welcoming from the very first hello! The food was authentic, and perfectly prepared. We especially appreciated the local flair, sharing with us how Frankfurters enjoy some of the more regional dishes. I was shocked at the very end to find out that the servers, realizing it was my birthday, invited us to share a shot of an amazing local drink. We will be excited to return next time we are in Germany, and would recommend this to anyone planning to be in the area!!
