Visiting Sachsenhausen is a must to experience the true apple wine houses. Some are touristy, but Kanonesteppel is usually full of Germans. It's a cosy place, but if you can get in (you may have to wait) you'll find a truly great, friendly atmosphere. The apple wine will generally only be served with food, which is good authentic german fare... More

Going to Sachsenhausen for apple wine with colleagues from out of town is a ritual in Frankfurt - and it can go horribly wrong. Nobody at work goes to these places in any other scenario, therefore, nobody know where to go, and thus there's always the risk of ending up in a tourist trap. I was pleasantly surprised when I...

Famous for schnitzel and easy to see why they got that way. Bustling place with bench seating and casual dinning. Food is to die for - and you likely will if you eat that much and that heavy too often - but if your in Frankfurt and want some serious food and a LOT of good food then for sure... More

Tasty German food, apple wine, friendly service and a great atmosphere make this one of my favourite restaurants. The portions are generous and prices on the low side making the cannon loader a great value. You get to sit a traditional long tables, so there is always something to talk about with the locals who make up the majority of... More

Love this place for everything: superb German food with typical Frankfurt influences like a green sauce (which tastes amazing here), great service, excellent price/quality coordination, lovely ambience and amazing architecture. Highly recommended!

Our hotel gave us the heads up on this place as it was big on traditional food which was just what we wanted! We had been given specific meal recommendations too so we ordered what was suggested. Big tip - the serves were GIGANTIC! Neither of us could finish our meals & we gave it really good crack! My order... More

Food was authentic and good, very "Hessen", portions were big for a reasonable price. Friendly staff, atmosphere cozy. All in all, great place.

We were in Frankfurt for just one night and a colleague suggested this place. So a 15 minute taxi journey from an airport hotel took us to this off the street venue. The host made space for us on a long communal table and we got stuck in to the apple wine and sauerkraut with schnitzel .... Will be going... More

This is place is probably one of the best kept local secrets in Sachsenhausen. Unless someone who knows the place takes you there, chance are it's not a place you would simply stumble upon by accident. Although the menu is fairly limited, it is the best of the best of local schnitzel, pig knuckle or dumpling you're going to find... More

If you want to experience friendliness in a large city restaurant, come to the "cannon loader". Reasonable prices for very large portions and very good schnitzels describe this restaurant. My only complaint was the lack of a good selection of beer (the locals usually have the apple wine).
