This sixth-floor restaurant gives you a good view of the theater if you sit on the east side. In the summer you can eat outside on the roof of the building, and maybe also have a view of the Bowling Green or look down at Kaiser-Friedrich-Platz.
The view from the west side isn't nearly as nice, mainly a jumble of unimpressive buildings from the second half of the 20th century.
The food is perfectly all right. Nothing special, though.
Wagner's Bistro is actually in the same building as the State Theater, just around to the side on Wilhelmstraße. It's a small place with pleasant indoor and outdoor seating, so I like to go sit there and cool off before the opera starts.
Favorite Dish: They have coffee and cake, as well as drinks and snacks. I always seem to order Toast Hawaii just because that's what I had the first time and I seem to be becoming a creature of habit lately. Their salads look nice, too, though.
Very tastefull grillings with the special oriental spices. Libanese red and white wines, oriental coffee and tea, international guests. Waterpipes.
Only 1 min away from the Hotel Admiral.
If you want to smoke a waterpipe, ask the waiter
Favorite Dish: I prefere the grilled lamb, its so tastefull and delicious with all those arabian spices.
Gfs and me made it to the Lodge Restaurant after our very long visit and walk through
the Opel Zoo, which is the only zoo I'm fine with to recommend. Now, the Lodge Restaurant sits right at Opel Zoo's entry, and provids with an awesome atmosphere, food and view. Dining there makes one feeling like communing with wildlife and being into some green where the tense and the tired find true break. This restaurant's menu is simply fantastic. Waiter/waitresses are very friendly. We've had fries, baked onions & mexican vegetable, extra ordinary hash browns , lemon & walnut ice cream, tea & mineralwater. Every meal is worth its price, and also it's worth to do the drive of about 15mns from Wiesbaden to Kronberg.
Nice, little and lovely restaurant that offers seafood. It's right on pedestrian zone and there for very comfortable to dine at this place while on break from shopping/sight seeing tour. Can't say restaurant's seafood would be extra ordinary yet the lady that serves the food is very friendly, and it doesn't take long until one's order is done.
You reach some of the best Turkish restaurants whith the buses 3, 6, or 33, stop Michelsberg. In the street going down to the right or
Wellritzstr.: Harput (not serving alcoholic drinks), and some bistros. Urfa, a few Euro cheaper.
Bleichstr. (in front of Bus stop): Star Kebap, kitchen from SE Turkey.
From Hauptbahnhof Buses 4, 14, 27, 45 to "Bismarckring". Walking back, on the corner of Walramstr. is the restaurant Cappadocia, from which I reccomend the "Tagesteller", the daily stew, served whith rice, salad and bread for only 5 Euro.
The best white bread in town is sold by bakery Firat (turning down left from Wellritzstrasse). One pide (nearly 500 g) for 90 cent.
Other fine baked things are to be found at rather low prices at Günay, on the corner of Wellritzstr./ Schwalbacher Str. There a pide costs only 80 cent and nice specialities to taste are their Kekse whith cheese and herbs (Käse und Kräuter) and nut-cinammon (Nuß mit Zimt) for about 40 cent each.
The restaurant in the casino building is delicious. Unfortunattely are the prices not so delicious. I mean quite expensive. But of course you're eating in a wonderful decor and that must justify the price I think.
Nice spot along one of the main W. street for shopping and leisure time.
Good interiors without being wonderful and a nice outdoor place as fresh as enough even in the hot summer.
Favorite Dish: Everything !!!!!!!
You can go for the typical Tandoori stuff (cooked in the indian oven) or for a lot of different food.
Anyhow my best was "Tandoori mix" with fried onions as starter.
One for 5,50 Euros is on the left side of Real shopping mall, Bus stop (3, 6, 33) Welfenstrasse
It includes chicken in hot spiced coconut milk Thai style.
The other, for 6,50 € is located in the city center: China Garten, Kirchgasse 48 (City- Passage) Monday to saturday, 12-15h. Bus stop (3, 6, 33): Platz der Deutschen Einheit.
phone: 0611/ 301458
thursdays 18-21h evening buffet
open daily from 11:30 to 22:00 h
Goldgasse is a narrow street that form part of the connection between the walking street and the town hall/market square area
Favorite Dish: There isn't much to choose between them. None are spectacular. (But in particular avoid "Comeback Restaurant.") On the other hand all are great places to sit outside and have a beer while watching the world pass by.
One thing I noticed in Wiesbaden is that after businesses closed for the day cafes would spread out in front of, for example hairdressers or electronics shops. In this cafe the cafe existed during the day but, after the old city hall closed would spread out to cover the whole front!
From this cafe you can see the fountain, the new city hall and the State of Hesse building. There is also a market here several days a week.
Along the main shopping district, more or less in front of the Spa & Casino' you'll find Cafe' Blum.
Modern interiors (not so common in Wiesbaden), tremendous breakfats and unforgettable cakes ... you cannot skip this place !!!!!!
Favorite Dish: The sunday breakfast buffet is perfect, with some healthy stuff like muesli and strawberry-milk.
Next to be tried is the picnic basket they provide upon request
The BRUNCH !!! And having a long breakfast .... for 8 Euro plus 2,80 for the Latte Macchiato.
The buffet includes pan, cheese, sausages and eggs (both cold and fried), salad, fish, fruits (fresh and salad), yoghurt, cereals (Müsli), Italian antipasti, orange juice and so on ...
It is quite full on Sundays, so if you are in a hurry, make a reservation!
The Bar 1486 was named after the year the hotel was founded. During the evening hours you can sip cocktails in an elegant and pleasant atmospehere.
The room breathes the atmosphere of older times, slightly worn but nevertheless pompous. The famous "Ingelheimer Zimmer" is right next door and you may have the chance to see it (if asking politely).
On Fridays and Saturdays they play live music from 22:00 till 2:00 a.m.
Favorite Dish: As you may know, the Radisson SAS hotels are 5-star. I can not afford to stay there overnight, but to drink a coffee in their Bar 1486 is affordable.
If you prefer to have your coffee and cake in a calm and settled environment away from too many people, than you will definitely like it here.
A cake and a Latte Macchiato for 6 Euro.
The Ente is the top restaurant in Wiesbaden. It is inside the famous Nassauer Hof hotel. A friend of mine is a chef here, so I always ask him for a discount! (Actually not, I only went here once with my brother and he wore sweatpants.)
Favorite Dish: I ate duck (asian style) with vegetables. Very, very good.
I can really recommend the Entrecout (with salmon).
If you want to try it out, I would say that you should go at lunch, because dinner is way too snobbish and expensive.
