Alma - International cuisine restaurant in Frankfurt

The Alma (Portuguese for “soul”) is a refreshingly laidback hidden jewel in a quiet street of Frankfurt’s swank Nordend district where the atmosphere is always cheerful and buzzy and the inventive small menu changes almost daily. Despite the name and the origins of the patron – Zaira Ponte is from Portugal – it is not a classical Portuguese restaurant as one may be led to expect. 

Cuisine served is international, season oriented and mainly with local organic products, where sensible with an individuated Portuguese touch. Occasionally Portuguese classics  – dishes like “carne de porco à Alentejana” or the one or other “bacalhau” standard, albeit with a Zaira twist,  find their way onto the daily specials blackboard. Many, in Germany, difficult to find wines from Portugal are offered and a “pastel de nata” for your after dinner “bica” is always freshly held.

Book in advance – walk-ins are risky, the Alma is seldomly not booked to the last few seats– for a table in the small dining room or opt for one of the places at the bar – for those warm afternoons and evenings a wonderful quiet terrace invites.
