Very nice food and fast service - I wasn't familiar with much in the menu, but I tried spätzle... Not sure if I would get it again, but all the dishes looked wonderful.

We came across this typical german restaurant while walking on Bergerstrasse. The garden is very nice with wooden tables to share with others. The beer was cold and the food was good. The only thing that ruined the experience was the slow service. There is a serious lack of waiters here. Waited 35 minutes for drinks and almost wanted to... More

We really enjoy this typical Frankfurt restaurant, especially in summer when we can sit in the garden under the huge shady trees and have a glass of refreshing Äppelwoi (Apple wine). The Handkäs (hessian cheese speciality) is excellent, as well as the delicious Schäufele (baked pork shoulder). For dessert try the Mispel (shot of alcohol with fruit). The service can... More

Was recommended to visit this Apfelwein Tavern and was sooooo glad we did so. Great atmosphere and friendly service from the staff and also thankful for the recommendations. I loved the Sauerkraut lasagne and the mispel Drink in the end....Cheers Zur Sonne !

The food here is top notch and the waitresses and waiters do a great job handling the crowd in the bug beer garden. The beer is very good as is the apple wine. Schnitzel with green sauce is classic but you can't go wrong with any of their dishes.

When you walk into this place you know you are going to have a good German meal. The beer and other drinks are good as well as the food. It is a nice place to go if you are going to the US Consulate, it is about 10 mins away by car.

Love Zur Sonne! Friendly atmosphere, fantastic staff and good food at good prices! The terrace in the summer is a great place to enjoy food or drinks! German food with I suspect a Croatian influence.
