The food was good but we had to wait for seats and food very long (there were only two staffs/owners who take care of whole restaurant). Try pork knuckles and grilled sausages there!

Recommended by our hotel for German food, we greatly enjoyed the food. Lovely broths and noodle soups, followed by different types of schnitzel. We didn't feel like the various cuts of pork, but they looked excellent. Very good pricing and an enjoyable experience. Will definitely go again!

If I have to name my highlight of my trip to Frankfurt, I would say: staying in Europa Life Hotel, and having a pork knuckle in Baseler Eck......that made my visit to Frankfurt. It is a friendly, cosy restaurant, just around the corner from Europa Life. The meat in the pork knuckle just falls off the bone, and together with... More

Being caught up in the Lufthansa strike we were put in the IBIS Centrum Hotel by the airline for one night. The dining provided by the hotel was just about non-existant, so I walked round the corner looking for somewhere to eat and found the Baseler Eck. Initial impressions were of a basic German restaurant - particularly as the reception... More

In Frankfurt overnight, we wanted to try some authentic german cuisine with our 3-year old and this place was on the same street as our hotel. We were quite pleased with the food and drinks, however thought the service was unpleasant and the decor very dated. It might have been fun and quirky back in the days to meet a... More

Great chicken, salat, and complimentary after dinner drinks! The owner has a small, but comfortable dining area with a traditional German feel.

I showed up solo, and was seated at a table for four in a side room. Later, the waiter asked if 2 gentleman could join me. After a while, we struck up conversation, and it was very nice to have the company for dinner. I had nice rump steak with onions and a beer. Very tasty. So happy, I managed... More

I read the terrible reviews of this place and got a bit worried whether we would get the same kind of bad attitude and service, but that's out of the box. The 5 of us came in around dinner time on an Wednesday, and right after we sat down we were greeted nicely by the waiter (or owner?) with menus,... More

We come here every year, the Monday of Frankfurt Book Fair week, as we stay nearby. It is always reliable German fare. Good for a schnitzel, home made spaetzle, pork knuckle etc. and a vat of beer. Usually full of Fair people having dinner, but they've always fitted us in.
