We walked in occasionally (hotel restaurant was closed during the Christmas) and were not disappointed. Menu is extensive. Everything is tasty, schnitzel (I recommend Aposteln Schnitzel) is crunchy and juicy. After checking Tripadvisor realised it is in top 10 places in the city. Leaving this review just to confirm the rating.

I ordered the Apostel Schnitzel which was good but not spectacular. The schnitzel was still very oily and it was not that crunchy as I was expecting it. Nevertheless it was a cozy ambient downstairs and they have their own beer which is quite good.

I found the place based on other TripAdvisor reviews to book for a business dinner. It did not disappoint. I had incredible schnitzel and all of my guests enjoyed their authentic german comfort food. They have their own beer, brews on site and I liked it. The atmosphere was great, the service friendly and fast. I would return here for... More

If you search a typical german restaurant, not too expensive in a great atmosphere, it's for you. The service is very good and with the smile ;)

Nice authentic German food. Cozy place with nice waiters. The desserts were subpar but the food overall was good.

Quite small place at first empty, but very quickly filled up. Food was excellent and we both liked our choice of beers, made there at the restaurant. Highly recommend this dining experience.

We went for dinner and were very impressed with the ambiance, friendly service (the waitress was delightful) and tasty and well presented dishes ( Rump steak and Wild Boar stew). The puddings too were delicious ( Apfelstrudel and Apfelwein tart). The German wines and pear schnapps were of high quality and reasonably priced. It was indeed our best meal in... More

So many fine German specialities are to be found at zu den 12 Aposteln that making a choice from the menu is the hardest part. Traditional, hearty, plentiful food served in a friendly, unpretentious atmosphere. The staff are helpful and not overly attentive. I ate alone and have seldom enjoyed a meal so much: the traditional German Christmas meal of... More

The German country atmosphere and decor of this restaurant is very cozy and comfortable. The food is OK, not great.

This was my first really meal after arriving in Frankfurt and I was to say it was fantastic. My friend picked this place to eat and I have to say he made a good choice. It is a small place but very homey. We sat in the back corner. My friend already knew what he wanted: a dark beer and... More
