We decided to try this restaurant based on some of the excellent reviews we read. We found the food to be mediocre at best. The pork knuckle is a huge serving and not all that great. In addition we had the pork roast with gravy, sauerkraut and spaetzle - all were cold by the time they were served to us.... More

We wandered around Mainz trying to fine this place, it's on the opposite side of the road than I expected towards the citadel. My word was it worth the search, so many times we considered bailing on the trek and heading into another bar/restaurant; but we didn't - much to our joy. It's own beer is served in a variety...

This is more than a pub/restaurant but more of a work of art. Its a step back in time. The copper workings with exposed pipes and vats are truly unique and give the place such a great atmosphere. Give the Goulash and bread a try and order a double amount as its yummy and cheap (about 12 euro for the... More

This is a lovely friendly bar serving their own brewed beer in steins. Great beer but food is good, not great. Still worth a visit and good value

Two years ago we came across this restaurant and was a nice surprise. As we needed to attend the very same meeting, a new visit was paid... For us was very pleasant to notice it remained unchanged...Inside, it looks like a WWII bomb shelter but we found the same 3 or 5 liters of beer tubes, half meter sausages and... More
