“Fantastic Atmosphere!”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

On a cold December night we stumbled upon this establishment which was warm and welcoming but really busy. Lots of people were already eating whereas we only wanted drinks. The hostess was very helpful and quickly found us a table which was available for 1.5 hours, more than long enough for us. The drinks menu was extensive and my friends and I chose red wine ( a very large carafe for only one person), a radler (shandy) and a raspberry schnapps. All were served promptly by very happy staff but the schnapps was very strong! It made my eyes water just sniffing the glass so look out. We had other plans for dinner but the appearance and smell of the food being served looked great and very tempting. Will definitely eat here on my next trip to Frankfurt.

“Great Beer and Schnitzel”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

We took the Frankfurt Foot Tour with Sam, and he invited the group to join him afterwards for a drink. I really liked the Paulaner beer a few years ago in Muenchen (Munich) so I thought “great”. I had the Pils option of the Paulaner choices. I ordered the Jager Schnitzel, which is schnitzel in a creamy mushroom sauce. Yummy! Other half had the local Applewein, which he thought was just so so. He had soup and a pretzel with sausage dish. The food and service and especially the group’s conversation were outstanding. There were two couples who were about to start a river cruise plus Sam was very entertaining. When I return to Frankfurt, I will definitely try to eat lunch here again. Thanks Sam for the recommendation. The prices were very reasonable for this part of town. No complaints whatsoever!

“Традиционный немецкий ресторан”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

Very nice place, great decor and interior of the restaurant is situated a good rest and mood. We were late to the previously booked time at exactly 2:00, but the hostess kindly provided us with a table, the staff are very attentive and considerate. Pilzner beer was the best of the tried three varieties. Ordered traditional sausages, cabbage and mashed potatoes .. everything was tasty, big portions. People on Thursday were a lot better to book in advance ... near beautiful Lutheran church.

“huge portions!”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

We decided to go there as it is considered to be one of the locals' favourites and I'm glad we did. Although the decor is very "touristy" food is really great and authentic. I found the prices normal (average) comparing to the huge portions! Would definitely recommend it.

“Great pub”
Reviewed 10 November 2013 via mobile

Beer is very good, there are several types such as dark, weizen, etc. The food is great also, the plates are always overcrowded with meat. You can also buy a souvenirs like beer cups there with Paulaner logos. Very good place!
