The restaurant is too small if you don't make a reservation you will wait for over an hour if not more. It's too loud all the time and very crowded. The waiters are friendly but they can forget about you very easily. The food is just ok not the best Italian I've ever had. I chose the lobster and avocado... More

To find a quite restaurant with a nice atmosphere good food an good service where can even bring your dog is kind of complicated. The Charlot is the place I usually chose in case. Downside: Ensure you made a reservation. It can be pretty full. Chose one of the traditional Italian dishes, like pasta. They are great. The place it... More

Nice Italian brasserie next to the opera. Staff is very welcoming and the service is great. We took the suggested polipo that was good and followed by a USDA bisteca alla Fiorentina that was not up to par. The meat quality was disappointing. The Tiramisu was good.

Beautiful setting next to the opera house right in city centre of Frankfurt. We let the waiter pick and ended up with amazing dishes - Risotto and tortellini . Dinner menu limited so order per wait staff recommendation.

Charlot is a favourite whenever we visit Frankfurt. It is at the end of a walking street with many good stores and in the square with the beautiful Frankfurt Opera House. In October 2016, we 2 couples enjoyed the sunset with drinks and appetizers and then moved indoors to start with crispy Caesar Salads and soup. 2 of the fish... More

I have stayed in Frankfurt on business on several occasions and this is a must eat at restaurant. The setting is idyllic with the Opera House opposite, especially when lit up in the evening. The restaurant is relatively small inside, but the outside terrace is a good size. The atmosphere is very good as the tables are always full, so... More

Located just in front of the opera in a very nice pedestrian area if you're lucky with the weather the seating outside is very agréable. The restaurant is of a high standard with premium italian food, wine list is of great choice and waiters are really professional and welcoming

SIT OUTSIDE. Fortunate for us it was a sunny Friday night, as inside space seems limited. But with a wonderful view on the opera house, who wants to be inside? The pavement setup is energetic and comfortable. BOOK IN ADVANCE. We did. Fortunately! At 19:00, all tables were either full, or reserved. DO NOT SKIP STARTERS. Boy, were they good!... More

Yes the outside restaurant enjoys a gorgeous location on the Old Opera House square BUT the prices are a rip off. Don't eat here unless you just want the throw money away. We had one tiny past order and a minimal salad plus a bottle of water as expensive as wine in an ordinary restaurant.....Cost before tax and tip....E 51.60... More

I've entertained clients in this restaurant several times. The food is consistently excellent. Great service and perfect central location. Not cheap, but really nice. Enjoy!
