Frankfurt is a global hub for business, commerce and media and is known for its tall buildings not to mention hosting the world’s biggest motor show. It’s also a popular tourist destination with a wide range of attractions both inside the city and within the wider Rhein-Main Area (not least the real Frankenstein Castle), and its architecture, culture and local cuisine making it an ideal place to go for a romantic weekend. When it comes to eating out in Frankfurt, there’s probably one kind of food that immediately comes to mind, and there’s nothing immediately romantic-sounding about a frankfurter, but there’s so much more on offer. Here is a selection of romantic restaurants for your dinner date escort in Frankfurt.
The name might not sound very German, and Lafleur’s cuisine comes from all around Europe with a focus on France, but that makes it a particularly romantic destination for a night out. With incredible delights on offer from the a la carte or degustation menus and a sophisticated setting, this is the ideal start to your evening.
Main Tower Restaurant & Lounge
If panoramic city views are your idea of a romantic setting, there’s no better place in Frankfurt than the Main Tower Restaurant, which – as the name suggests – towers 61 foot over the city. The Main Tower may not the biggest skyscraper in town but it’s the only one you can enjoy a meal in and its restaurant offers fine dining to fit the location.
For foodies, chef Matthias Schmidt’s Villa Merton is where you’ll want to head for your dinner date. Found in the trendy Diplomatenviertel district of Frankfurt, it’s an elegant restaurant for an elegant and romantic – but most of all adventurous – meal. There’s a reason that it has got a Michelin star, after all. If you’re eating there in the summer or a warm spring evening, check out the tree-lined terrace for some extra romance.
Set in a converted Trinkhalle (think American diner for a comparison), Heimat is another ideal destination for a dinner date if you are looking for food that will match the romantic atmosphere. Its focus is on seasonal European fare and an additional bonus here is the open plan kitchen that gives diners the chance to see what’s going on as chef Gregor Nowak and his team create your food. Like the Villa Merton, there’s also a terrace that makes for a wonderful place to enjoy a warm and sensational evening with your companion.
