Right next to the new European Central Bank (EZB) you can wine & dine in a beautiful location right beside the river Main. My fabulous dinner at Oosten Restaurant in Frankfurt was accompanied by a fantastic view of the skyscraper backdrop of the Frankfurt Financial District. Oosten is not only a restaurant but also an event location, on 3 levels. If it wouldn’t be for the delicious food alone, I would absolutely solely return for the views and a walk in the area. An extensive menu invites you to start your day with breakfast at Oosten Frankfurt, followed by various options for lunch and dinner.
Each of my three courses in the Resturant on the Main, the Oosten, was more than good. I especially liked the appetizer, a summer salad with gratinated goat’s cheese, cranberries and pine nuts . In terms of taste, all the components of the salad did fit perfectly together, the leaf salad, the creamy goat cheese, the sweet cranberries and the crisp pine nuts harmonized to a perfect dish. Also, the portion size was perfect and I looked happily forward to the following courses. As a vegetarian, I was able to choose between two dishes as a main course, couscous or penne. I opted for the spicy penne with leaf spinach, feta cheese, chilli, pine nuts, cherry tomatoes and Parmesan . A good decision, even if the portion was a bit too huge for me. Two times in a row sheep’s cheese stuffs pretty much, which is why I could not completely finish the following dessert, namely a coconut pannacotta with mango sauce . The dinner at Oosten Frankfurt was accompanied by a very drinkable Riesling from Rheinhessen, always chilled to the right temperature.
Without a doubt a very successful evening, in great company with delicious food and a stunning view. I can definitely recommend this restaurant, for other options in the city, check out my other Frankfurt Restaurant Recommendations. In addition, now in the upcoming fall, the Oosten restaurant might be not as crowded in the evenings, as in the high of the summer, with still appropriate temperatures and an open terrace.
