I have lots of exposures to many kinds of cuisines, but rarely have close encounter with German food, only associated with Pork Knuckle in Octoberfest or sausage or meat soup at exhibition ground like Düsseldorf..so never had a good experience on German food so far. Recently with wife in Frankfurt for short break, naturally look for Michelin star restaurant to... More

The food is wonderful. Mix of many types of food. Appetizers were great ( e.g. Asparagus with steak tartare), soups ( e.g. lemongrass soup with beef satay)were wonderful. I was invited there twice during my trip and both times it was special. Lamb was great. All entrees looked great. Property was lovely - nice grounds. Private setting. Excellent service.

Very good and tasty food, service was excellent. We took the six meal dinner with very good wins. The only problem is that we wait too long between every course. Highly recommended.

Located in a nice old villa close to the center. Service and settings are elegant without being boring. Had 6 course menu with matching wines. Pairing was done almost perfectly. Attached are few of the selections. It is a dining experience.

I was disappointed during my last visit, the food was good but not as great as it was years ago. The service was excellent and the staff friendly.

One of the best restaurants in Frankfurt, this is a Michelin starred jewel set in an elegant villa in the diplomatic quarter. It is elegant with shining crystal, pristine napery, and sophisticated interior design. The cooking is precise, technically highly proficient, with some very interesting explorations of traditional dishes - the chef's approach to quail is particularly interesting. This is... More

Four of us enjoyed an unforgettable dinner in this beautiful location. Outsize photos of opera house interiors (glorious!) and of vaulted cellars containing barrels of wines made for a rather unconventional but highly appealing decor. Otherwise the atmosphere was that of tasteful luxury commensurate with the beautiful villa in which the restaurant is located. The service was impeccable and yet... More

I must say the chef has great talent in creating the look for each dish....simply beautiful and artistic... But when it comes to taste..... It is not spectacular and some elements are very adventurous... But some combinations does not seem to go well..... Anyway it was a nice treat for the eyes! See the photos. We had the 4 course...
