We spent one evening in Mainz and accidentally went to this restaurant. We were put in a nice, intimate corner, no one bothered us. Very friendly service with good recommendations. Amazing food. Very tasty broccoli soup and veal. Reasonable price

An absolutely brilliant restaurant. Utterly charming owners who go out of their way to help you choose a delicious meal made with local ingredients. Fantastic service and wine list. The atmosphere with the candles and decor is very relaxing. My husband and I love this restaurant and will return many more times.

Good food. Nicely presented but enough for a man. Romantic atmosphere with nice dark corners and a lovely bar.

We sat outside in a lovely garden area and ordered rack of lamb and poached salmon. Both meals were delicious. The friendly owner recommended a delicious apple torte with ice cream and liquor. It was very good. The owner was very talkative and when it came time for the bill, he asked for a TIP before I have him our... More

Honestly, when you visit a restaurant, how often are you greeted by a handshake from the owner? From a very first second to the last, we felt like we are distant but very welcome family, loved and pampered.We got attention, we got service, we got suggestions and advice, and then we got food. Yes, food. The owner told us that... More

Pleasant, friendly, efficient service Food and wines acceptable but nothing impressive. Perhaps a little over-priced but not exorbitant. Worth a second visit.

The atmosphere is lovely, the food is great and the location is in historic alt stadt, what more could you want?! I highly recommend the goat cheese salad. For dinner, you can't go wrong with the rumpsteak or the rack of lamb. For fish lovers the salmon or tuna and for those wanting German go for the pork loin filets... More

Walking down a charming street after visiting the Dom we spotted this interesting restaurant filled with history and warmth. The staff was very friendly. The beer and Rhine wine was just what the rainy day called for. I had a lovely salmon filet with a herb sauce and my husband had the schnitzel. The cabbage and potatoes are not to... More
