Frankfurt Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Frankfurt

December 14, 2017 Alice Mieles

There’s plenty to see and do in this 2,000-year-old German city. The gothic Saint Bartholomeus Cathedral is a perseverant structure, having been destroyed and rebuilt twice since its 14th century construction. Catch a screening at the German Film Museum, stroll the exhibit halls of one of Frankfurt’s many galleries, or climb to the top of the Main Tower for sweeping 360-degree views of the city.

Iwase

Reviewed By Mark L - Lusaka, Zambia

Very small typical Japanese layout restaurant. Serves excellently prepared fresh Sushi and Sashimi, but also other brilliant authentic Japanese dishes. This is a must visit for us every time we are in the Rhein-Main area. You definitely need to book in advance. My favourite are the oysters when in season.

Kabuki Frankfurt

Reviewed By girlfromfaraway - Germany

The food was indeed extraordinary, and the show...what should I say. However, the fact that we were 8, everybody ordered something different, there were so many ingredients and everything was served simultaneously led to some less than hot meat on our plates...Service was very good, prices on the high end.

Living here for over 20 years, I didn't know that the Hessischer Hof hotel hosts such gourmet jewel. Flawless service, a great French inspired cuisine, inspiring menu and great wines. The price actually is pretty ok for the standard of this venue.

Restaurant Medici

Reviewed By Stalex24 - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The restaurant isn't very big and tables could be considered fairly close. However, the atmosphere is good and decoration stylish. Service is good, although the German of the staff is quite fast spoken. They will switch to English without problem, though.
The menu is interesting and the wine menu is excellent.The flammkuchen is very tasty. All dishes are presented beautifully and portions are very well sized.

This was the first place we ate in Frankfurt based on TripAdvisor reviews.
We both got the Chicken schnitzel, as it was called on the menu but when it came it was not the breaded schnitzel I was expecting. It was also Not piping hot so we had to eat fast. There were 2 different sauces on plate (mushroom sauce for the schnitzel and the salad dressing) and these merged which was not exactly great.
However I’m only removing 1 star from the review for all this ad the food is Good value and it is Tasty food.

African Queen

Reviewed By Warringtonian - Warrington, United Kingdom

It was a Monday night, and all tables reserved, but as were early and would be out before the reservation, we were welcomed in and had the choices explained (and the history as the first African restaurant in Germany). Designed to be eaten with the fingers (but with forks provided) it's Eritrean food, and delicious. Interesting drinks choice (the Nigerian Guinness) and all very atmospheric. It seemed good value with the main course from around €12.

Reviewed By 811michael - United Kingdom

We had some rather tasty soups at this very good Japanese in Frankfurt. The soups were beautiful seasoned to ensure sensational fresh, natural and authentic flavours. The ingredients used for the soups were so natural it almost felt as though we were tasting Japan and the wonderful, fresh aromas felt as though Japan was in the air. Overall it was a highly enjoyable experience in nice comfortable environment.

Ariston

Reviewed By Yannis T - Athens, Greece

Greek restaurants in abroad are not really genuine, as they are mostly offering souvlaki and meat, while Greek cuisine is an unique combination of veges, meat, herbs and pies. Ariston differs than other Greek restaurants, nevertheless this differentiation is overpriced, non logically and rationally if you consider that all what Ariston managed to do is to reach genuinely the typical quality and recipies of a traditional Greek taverna in home turf. This quality though costs the half and in a place like Frankfurt gastronomy quality is relatively mid tier priced. I appreciate among others the service and place but again it's for the pockets of fewer as pricing is disportional to the offer.

Restaurant Adolon

Reviewed By Eldarwen333 - Belgium

I had booked a few tables for our team during a congress. There were some last minute changes, but the owner was great in accomodating our group.
Both my colleagues and myself loved the restaurant. The food was fantastic and the hostess/owner was really nice. Go in hungry, because you will want to try everything and the portions are quite big!
I will definitely keep this restaurant in mind for future visits in Frankfurt!
