    Barrio Alto: Spanish Food

    by Kristina1701 Written Mar 25, 2011

    If you are into Spanish food, then this is the place to go. Besides a small but nice selection of Spanish dishes and desserts they offer all kinds of tapas as well as Paellas. When it comes to the latter, you have to take into account that they are freshly prepared and thus only served if ordered by two or more persons. Also, the preparations take about 45 minutes.
    Their wine list offers a huge selection of Spanish wines and has even won awards.
    In summertime you can also enjoy your meal in their cozy patio.

    Zum Backblech: A funny dinner

    by Cristian_Uluru Updated Sep 2, 2008

    Zum Backblech is a delicious restaurant suggest by the staff of Hotel Maguntia (it is 5 minutes on foot by the hotel).
    It is a typical German restaurant/brewery located in a modern building. The staff was very friendly but she doesn't speake English a lot. The beer and the dishes were excellent.

    Favorite Dish: In this restaurant you have a big choice of food: from sandwiches to a complete dish. I can suggest to try a delicious Beefsteak served with fired onions; otherwise id you don't like onions I can suggest to try Beefsteak on a bed of Champignon mushrooms with bacon, french potatoes and a big salad. Another delicious dish is filet of pork served with Champignon mushrooms, big salad and croquettes of potatoes.

  • Balkan Express: Kosovar fast food

    by merak Updated Jun 16, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you ever were on the Balcanes and liked the food, you are right here. And if not, try a Pleskavica instead of a Big Mac. Maybe you have already tried the b?rek at Marmaris. Here you have another tipe of it. They make it also filled whith apples.
    If you think the chevapchichi (kyebabchichi) or pljeskavicas could be made whith pork, you have neither to fear nor to hope of it. This bistro is run by Albanians from Macedonia, which assure that the meat is exclusively beef.

    Weinhaus Horn: Taste the Wine!

    by travellingdan Written Apr 30, 2008

    To try the regional wines, I recommend the "Weinhaus Horn" at the upper end of Mainz' old city. As it is located in a pedestrian area, you can sit outside, watch the people walk by and relax. If you can't choose for yourself from the huge winemenue, just ask the owner of the place or the lady behind the winebar for wines they recommend.

    Favorite Dish: All the wines!

    I once tried a red one called "Domina". At first I was quite frightened - but it tasted just lovely ;-)

  • Caffé e gelato: Best icecream in Mainz

    by merak Updated Oct 19, 2007

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Winter you can find some Brezel- designs at this stand.

    If you were disappointed by ice creams you found in Germany, give it a last chance and try it from this one. I could reccomend you nut sorts (Mozart, Bacio, Walnuss), lemon, Himbeere and strawberry (until available from not too far). I think I never ate a better pistaccio icecream in Germany- or nowhere else! But it's not longer that good. The prices are the best: 70 cent for a big ball in a very good wafer.
    You can get a coffee for 70 cent at Nordsee inside the station building.

    Favorite Dish: pistaccio icecream

    CHEAPEST COFFEE IN TOWN! 70 cent at NORDSEE, INSIDE THE STATION BUILDING- but apparently only there. Care for environment and order it in a Tasse (ceramic) to drink it there.

    Really, we should not accept prices above 1 Euro for a cup of coffee.

  • Menseria at Mainz University Campus: No cheaper place to eat

    by merak Updated Oct 19, 2007

    The Mensa is open whith warm dishes at least from Mon. to Fry, from 11.30 to 18 (17 on fridays) h.
    The plate of the day (the right post seen from the front) is very good sometimes and costs only 1,45 Euro- if you pass the cass as a student, which is normally no problem. Otherwise it would cost the double. One big plate of soup costs 60 cent only- cheaper than in Macedonia! Every day there is a good vegetable soup. A cup of soup only 30 cent. One big plate of french fries 1 Euro. Other things more or less like in other places.

    Now they are controlling harder if you are a student. Whithout card (pass) you have to pay the double :-(

    But if you have to make copies, there is no cheaper place! In the Mensa house there is a shop held by a Persan where you pay 3,5 cent for one copy, if you have at least ten.

    Favorite Dish: Soups are generally of fine quality.

    From Hauptbahnhof, take the bus 54 (Lerchenberg), 58 (Wackernheim) or 68 to Friedrich- von Pfeiffer- Weg, cross the road bridge, turn to the right, then to the left until you arrive at a main pedestrian walk in the campus. Turn right again and enter the building (upper floor) at the end of the way. Enter only the upper floor, because downstairs you could only pay by student card.

    Bengal Tandoori: A Taste of South Asia

    by yooperprof Written Mar 2, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In my town in Michigan, we don't have an Indian restaurant, and since I'm absolutely crazy about the cuisine of South Asia, everytime I go somewhere a little larger and more cosmopolitan, I try to find somewhere that will satisfy my cravings for naan and aloo gobi.

    I discovered the Bengal Tandoori house on one of Mainz's many side streets. It's a small storefront, but surprisingly comfortable inside - and the food was excellent. And relatively inexpensive, too!

    For a tiger-ish appetite!

    MoschMosch: Decent German Noodle Shops

    by yooperprof Written Mar 2, 2007

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    MoschMosch is a sleek and elegant chain of noodle shops in Germany. I picked a nice Riesling wine to go with an order of Thai Noodles - quite a good combination. I liked it here because there were no surprises, and it was possible to eat a satisfying and tasty meal for about $17 US. Another plus - they are open through the day, so I was able to drop in here when I was hungry, before the evening rush.

    A plate of pasta (makarna) for 2,60.

    Whith true yoghourt sauce, not (mixed whith) that sugared dressing *** !

    Favorite Dish: Try the best börek you can get served, big portion for 2,20 Euro!

    Heiligeist: church converted to a restaurant

    by sunnysarah Written Jun 21, 2006

    This restaurant was converted from a church. The interior is huge with high beamed ceilings. There is a large outdoor patio area as well, with tables in little nooks covered in ivy.
    Menu was great! We had the carpaccio and a bottle of wine for under $25 Euro
    Pizza's looked good and there was whole "asparagus" section of the menu.
    The interior looked like it would get rockn' on the weekends, with large automan style tables and charis in grey's and black and candles. We would definetly go back here!!

    Bengal Tandoori Restaurant: Bengal Tandoori Restaurant

    by antistar Written Apr 3, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This small family run Bengali restaurant was such a refreshing change after months of Germanicized Indian food. The food tasted really authentic, just like it is back home in England. In fact the owners, from Bangladesh, said they'd been to England a number of times. They even served me my bill in the English way, giving it to me on a small plate before walking away, rather than the German way of hanging around with a small purse pouch waiting to give you the change. Of course I can't say that it tastes just like it does in Bangladesh, but they do say that the best Indian (and Bangladeshi) restaurants are in England.

    The food was so good, the restaurant so cosy and relaxing, and the service so friendly that I went back for a second night before I left. On the second time I was slightly embarrassed, as when the waiter (the cook's son) discovered what I did for a living he rushed behind the counter to get a pad of paper so I would sign an autograph for him! It turned out he was a big fan of computer games, especially the one that I'd last worked on. I'd never had to do that before, and the people in the restaurant were all looking over to see who I was. It made me feel quite uncomfortable, but in a nice way.

    Weinhaus zum Spiegel is another traditional restaurant/wine bar. You can find there typical dishes of the region, like in Augustinerkeller.
    Have a look at the pic: you'll see the cathedral in the back again!

    L'incontro: People watching place

    by mauro_pd Written Sep 28, 2003

    Along main strolling street (Augustinerstrasse) you can find a lot of decent spots; this one is an italian andf they serve interesting stuff. I just tried some "bruschetta" and they were quite delicious, with fresh stuff.
    I also saw other courses on table around and they all looked ok.
