In general, I found German food a little uninspiring and heavy. But this place had very good local food, including a beautiful fig salad when I visited late August. Staff were helpful, recommended wonderful wine, as I'm not familiar with German varietals, and spoke perfect English to account for my utter lack of Deutsche! My favorite meal in Germany, particularly... More

Had dinner there while on a business trip in Mainz. Was leasantly surprised by how nice the old city was. Dropped in on this restaurant as it had favorable reviews.

This a tiny place, filled with locals, on a small street just outside the tourist area. The food was excellent - based on local produce, well cooked and not too salty. Everyone was very friendly and the staff spoke some English.

I am personal friends with the owners, who have friendly, English speaking staff. The menu is local and traditional, with very large servings and excellent value for money. Bookings are strongly advised as the restaurant is busy every night. Great wine list, and some favourite dishes include the smoked salmon salad, pork fillets with panfried potatoes, pumpkin soup, local handmade... More

This wine restaurant is in an asymmetric antique wooden house. There are 2 floors and both rooms are small so you are basically sitting really close to each other with your table neighbors. The portion of the meal is huge, so girls, ask how large the quantity is before you order an additional starters and desserts. The food is OK... More
