This is a real tourist trap. The Indian owner will reject any orders for only drinks and you will never see the kitchen which might be very good as the food is lowest quality. Prices are around 30 % more expensive as any other real...More

Frankfurt had over 2000 "half-wood" houses prior to WWII. This was the only one that survived in a city that was 90% demolished by bombing. Today it houses a 'period' bar-restaurant. Testament to the fact that over 200 cultures live in the city today. Mine-host...More

Advertised as the only building to boast the original wood structure due to the World War I thouht it would be better featured...but it looks just like other, rebuilt buildings in the area. Worth a walk-by since it's right by Romer....but I wouldn't go out...More
