I've been to this place several times and it's generally a good time. Bartenders are good. I recommend it for a date night.

there are many places where the service is not so great in Frankfurt - but never in many years here in this beautiful city have I ever been treated SO bad. Super arrogant, makes you feel bad for even trying to order...never again!

I did not tried the food, but did try the tea and it was really good. Really enjoyed the dekor and the service, I was there really early so the place was a tad empty. I would definitely go back, is like a little lost island in the red district.

Nice atmosphere, people from all walks of life come to this bar. Relaxed staff. It could be crowded on a Friday evening but should not be a problem at all.

So I arrived with the idea that he wanted to go to a worn down bar with dodgy people. To my amazement I was completely wrong. The area is under... More

Bar is ok, beer is overprized. Especially for German standards. E.g. 3 euro's for a Tannenzäpfle. The waitress did not show any flexibility nor any empathy. Clearly not a service orientated girl. Not a good example for the business owner as this is how you get bad ratings. They don't take cards, and she tried and force me to leave... More
