“The real Frankfurt deal”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

Applewine (cider) and good beer on tap with a very limited menu, this rather basic very Frankfurt place has been popular with locals for years. On Fridays only try a Frikadelle topped with a fried egg, otherwise sausages and potato salad, or a giant pork Kotelett. I work around the corner, so it's a regular place for an after-work beer.

“Good location for after work drinks”
Reviewed 5 March 2013

Nice relaxed bar with a small menu. Solid German/Hessian bar food and Apfelwein (they also have beer). A Frankfurt institution.

“Nice place”
Reviewed 31 January 2013

It had lunch here recently. The food is good and the atmosphere is 'typical German Frankfurt': a nice place without being too fancy or anything. The restaurant serves a crowd of regulars, always a good sign. I am sure to come back here, and may even become one too.

Mutter Ernst is an traditional, simple inn in the centre of Frankfurt, with a friendly atmosphere.
A small menu with plain, but goog pub dishes.
The custumers a mixture of students, worker and busines man.

“Better than a 3-star but not 4 worthy”
Reviewed 26 January 2012

Due to the location, this is filled with suits during lunchtime. Not judging though, as I blended in :P

The wood-paneled space is cozy, and the tables are pretty close together. The menu is rather limited, but the staff is friendly, and the atmosphere is warm. There were a lot of traditional dishes, and food was decent, but nothing spectacular. There was a wait the entire time we were there.
