This was my first really meal after arriving in Frankfurt and I was to say it was fantastic. My friend picked this place to eat and I have to say he made a good choice. It is a small place but very homey. We sat in the back corner. My friend already knew what he wanted: a dark beer and... More

This is a small German style Restaurant. We had the pork nuckle and mashed potatoes which was really nice. The prices are fine and this is avoid location to go as a tourist to get the German treat of good. The staff was friendly and paid attention.

This is a fantastic place offering local cuisine in a really fun and friendly atmosphere. We stumbled upon it near our hotel and are so pleased we did. Our first visit was for drinks only but seeing the food we decided to return the next night for dinner. The restaurant was full but we still got excellent service. We opted... More

It is the oldest in Frankfurt, located on two floors, the basement has better atmosphere I think . They make their own beer which is... More

We went for some beer and wurst. I can recommend their own pilsner, both hell and dunkel. Good food, exactly what I excpected. But above all it's a cozy cellar locale, nice personel, and the apfelstrudel was really good! Not quite five stars though, as the food varied a bit in quality

Let's face it, the beer in Frankfurt is just bad. Luckily, we have the 12 Apostles! The food is good - heavy. The atmosphere is really perfect in the winter time when you need some comfort food and a warm, cozy place.

Nice local restaurant serving traditional German food from the Frankfurt region…. Service is fast & friendly. Prices are mid-range. Be aware that portions are generally large. A two-person platter will suffice for 3 persons with a normal appetite (see attached photo of a “Frankfurter Platte” for two persons). Also try the local beer they serve. Highly recommended.
