Always a nice place to go to when you're feeling exotic. Its a bummer that things sometimes tend to be similar- everything is braised and tends to taste relatively similar. Service is always really nice though.

That was the absolute experience. Tasty meat, new dishes, tasty and different food reflecting this culture. As for the staff..more than friendliest. Give it a try, absolutely. Try Savanna Dry.

This is a small, cosy restaurant. The food is special. The taste is OK, but not very special. The ambiance is fine: a mix between a good restaurant with traditional African dishes and a local meeting point for the neighborhood. Enjoyed it.

This is the third time I have been here but my first review. Service impeccable. Great value for money: sharing platter for 2, pudding, glass of wine, espresso and bottle of water for under 50e. The food is all delicious. My favourite is the ochra. Get the tasting platter and try everything. You will definitely come back.

This restaurant is really good. Food is very good. Everybody speaks English making things easier. We got good advice on both food and beverage. We were with kids and waiters have been very helpful suggesting us what to order for them. If you love Ethiopian / Eritrean food this is the place for you. Strongly recommend

Really good dinner with great service and comfortable atmosphere. I'm a regular and can't get bored of this restaurant in frankfurt. I would recommend always reserving (especially Thursday-Saturday) as they are often very full.

Ok. There are two famous african restaurants in Frankfurt. Savanna is one of them. In both you do not have a really big menu. In both you get more or less the same. But Savanna is just different. You do not find a smile nicer than here. And to be honest, if you go to an african to eat almost... More

The food was beautifully presented, absolutely delicious and it was a lovely social way to share a meal with friends and colleagues. The food was from from Eritrea with a mixture of dishes to taste and no knives and forks! We had beautiful pancakes to use to scoop up the aromatic and spicy food. Comfortable. pleasant ambience and low, unobtrusive... More

Compared to other African restaurants in the Frankfurt area; the food at Savanna was good and really tasty authentic Eritrean food but much more expensive than other similar restaurants and with smaller portions. If you are in a group, all meals are served randomly in big dishes that go in the middle of the table. My meal was put in... More

A must if you want to try and enjoy east african food in the city. I have been in Ethiopia for quite some time and it's one of my favorite places in Frankfurt. Of course, you either like east african cuisine or not, - to know for sure you would need to try. And this is the best place for... More
