The location is idyllic, the menu and food delightful, the wine good and affordable, but I couldn't pay for our guests and ourselves because the Baiken does not accept US/Canadian credit cards - so bring cash!! May explain why there were lots of locals here, and very few tourists. This is certainly a locals' secret, as it is in a tiny town (Eltville am Rhein), up the hill at the edge of a large vineyard, in the Rhine Valley near Ruedesheim. The food is very classic German, and well prepared. Two of us had the veal shanks with chanterrelles and a demi-glace. Another had a pork cutlet, with spaetzle. The wait staff was most accommodating, allowing us to switch veggies, etc. We shared a cheese and asparagus quiche as an appy. For wine, we chose a "Graubergunder" (?grey burgundy?) as our wine, like a flavourful pinot gris, costing about 20 euro a bottle, although there were more expensive choices available. Crème caramel and cappuccinos for desert. The outside seating is substantial, with the patio looking down on the Rhine, and there is a large "Gaststube" inside as well. We'll find a way to get back!
