This Turkish restaurant situated at the southern end of Remagen's small pedestrian zone is a sure recommendation for anyone who likes the Eastern Mediterranean cuisine with their skewered and grilled meats and great starters. One of the best places to grab some decent food in town!
Favorite Dish: I had a "Tavuk Sis Ordöv" -- a skewer of grilled chicken meat served with seven different starters. Delicious!
The Brauhaus Remagen is the latest business that dared to open on Remagen's flood-stricken but recently remodeled Rhine promenade. Trying it out for the first time, we were quite pleased with the food. On the menu are typical Rhenish brewery house dishes as pork knuckles or Rheinischer Sauerbraten (bake-roasted marinated beef) and of course bratwurst. I am very sceptic about Brewery pubs in general, most Cologne ones serve really bad food, but this one located in my home town is a pleasant surprise. The food had very good quality and was presented with a modern twist. There is also plenty of finger food on the menu to go along with the pretty decent dark and light beer. All in all a place I can recommend for standard German pub fare.
Favorite Dish: I had a gratinated turkey steak, served with pineapples, gratinated cheese and cranberry sauce. The sides included pommes croquettes and you had a choice of salad or side vegetables. All this for EUR 9,80 -- not bad!
The Comeback is impossible to miss, since it is located directly on the B 9 left bank main Rhine Valley road from Koblenz to Bonn. This is a decent roadside inn offering typical German cuisine with a slight Hungarian touch. From the premises you have a gorgeous view across the Rhine to the renaissance town of Unkel. The beer garden is not entirely protected from roadside and railway noise, but unless the odd freight train rumbles through, you will stop noticing it after a while.
Favorite Dish: I had a standard schnitzel with french fries and paprika sauce -- ingredients were fresh, also the paprika sauce was obviously self-made, whereas loads of restaurants will use a prefab product. There is a very good choice of salad platters. My bill included the aforementioned schnitzel, a large Bavarian hefeweizen beer and a large latte coffee, coming to EUR 17,00. Very friendly and quick service. While certainly not a haute cuisine temple, the Comeback offers good value for money and puts little in the way for its customers to live up to its name!
Brewery pubs are extremely popular both with locals and tourists in the Rhineland. Here is a special one, but you will have to be careful not to miss it as it is tucked away in the Kasbachtal (Kasbach valley), a canyon-like valley running from the Rhine heights down towards the Rhine between Linz and Erpel. The pub is wonderfully atmospheric, if a bit stuffed with traditional farming equipment and early 20th century advertising signs. As with all brewery pubs, the fare you get here is traditional hearty German -- sausages, schnitzels and the like.
The Kasbach valley is also served by an old fashioned tourist train -- you can take the train from Linz all the way to its destination in Kalenborn on the rim of the Rhine heights. The hiking trails down through the Kasbach valley along the cascading creek are wonderful.
Favorite Dish: I had a giant Schnitzel with a spicy Shashlik sauce ("Zigeunerschnitzel"). Excellent french fries came with it. Of the brewery's local beers, the "Steffi" is probably the best one.
Prompted by a recommendation in VT we ate lunch here. It was not weather for sitting outside. It is not surprising to find good Ialian food in Germany and Franco's met the test. The owners and staff are native Italians (Calabrians). The food authetic with little flair. It was Father,s Day and a few elderly fathers with grandchildren were also eatng lunch (german kids eat pizza too).
Favorite Dish: I ordered a plate of Carpaccio (which was sliced thin and served appropriately) followed by some home-made pasta and a cream sauce. My companions also had such as veal limone (piccata) , etc. Real non-German meats! We even had Italian wine (but German beer)
