Favorite Restaurant

Reviewed By groundrod

With many restaurants on vacation during August, we found ourselves at the Favorite de Gastronomie for a special dinner, thanks to Viamichelin.com, Gault/Millau, and Tripadvisor. A very happy accident, and a very enjoyable 'surprise' dinner of 5 courses. Highlights included scallops accented with mango and papaya (a Summery treat), a delectable entree of macadamia-crusted venison filets in a red wine sauce, and a visit from the talented and personable young chef, Philipp Stein, currently the youngest holder of a Michelin star in Germany. Service was mostly adequate, lackadaisical at times, but friendly and welcoming. The dining room overlooks the confluence of the Main and the Rhein, with river, train, and automotive activity at key Mainz crossings. A pleasant place to dine, even if the food weren't so delicious.

I took a Chinese Group here and asked for the food to be served "family style" (e.g. put in the middle and everyone helps themselves). The restaurant - set in an old church - did an amazing job, served excellent food (and fast, like the Chinese expect it!), and provided an overall pleasant experience.Every staff member took great care of my group, even though the restaurant was busy. I am not sure if this was due to the fact that I had pre-discussed the visit a day ahead with the hostess, but my impression was that they would have done equally well without any advance briefing.Highly recommended and well worth a visit!

The schnitzel here is excellent, and there’s lots of it. I had the chicken schnitzel with Gorgonzola sauce—amazing! Potatoes that come with meal are great too. A big benefit here is that they have a wide range of chicken schnitzel, which is good if people in your group don’t eat pork. They have outside seating, which we didn’t use because it was raining, but I’ve sat outside here before—it’s on a nice quiet street.I’m coming back here (a third time) next time I visit Mainz.

We were delayed a day arriving in Germany and as a result missed visiting a winery. This place made up for it as they had a 'carousel of wine'. We tried 6 different varieties of local wine and sat outside at a picnic table with locals. We didn't order food but I wish we had the food looked amazing. We did buy two bottles of wine and were surprised at the prices, maybe around 7 Euro at most? We did have a small incident because we kept trying to flag down the waitress and a local grew annoyed at us. He went inside and fetched her for us. We were a bit embarrassed because of the language barrier and realizing we were annoying the locals. Either way, don't be afraid to go inside and ask for your bill.Dear Gidgetglam,many thanks for your good assessment. We are glad that to you liked our "wine personalities". Please, excuse the problems on the account - fine that regional guests helped in this situation.Kind regards from the heart of Mainz's old town Astrid, Stefan Michel and their team

Popped in here for a quick after-cinema drink but wished that we hadn't. We waited ages to be able to order and then ages for the drinks to arrive. The place wasn't even full and we didn't order anything complicated.On a brighter note, it was fun to get a hot chocolate seved in a milk-bottle and mint tea (although we ordered ginger) served in a handled preseving jar (is this why the room smelled of pickled onions?).

Eisgrub Braeu

Reviewed By Mairwen1

Great atmosphere especially for a group. Definitely book ahead if you’re going for dinner as it is clearly very popular.SETTING/ATMOSPHERE: Central location in the old town, not far from the cathedral (5-10 min walk). It’s a lively micro-brewery/restaurant with lots of fun elements like the 5 litre beer tubes, 1m long trays of beer, a maze of different rooms and big shiny copper brewery vats. SERVICE: Service was cheerful and friendly and our meals arrived quickly. FOOD: Good traditional German food. Three of us had pork schnitzels with mushroom sauce - huge portions and simple but very good. Our friend had the Schweinehaxen (pork knuckle) which they list on the menu as their classic dish (it had a whole menu page dedicated to it). It wasn't as big as we’ve had elsewhere and our friend said the schnitzels were much nicer. TIP: We booked ahead for dinner as there were 4 of us. We were glad we did because the place was heaving all night and I didn’t see any spare tables. We went again a few days later for lunch. We didn’t book this time but it was much quieter and there were spare seats.

Am Holztor

Reviewed By BillT910

We’ve been going to Am Holztor for many years now on our visits from Canada to Mainz and have always enjoyed stopping by this restaurant for a couple of beers and to get away from the typical tourist haunts. Both of us ordered the famous half dinner and fried potatoes, but, after enjoying the lovely fresh green salad, were sadly disappointed by what was presented. The potatoes were delicious however the chicken, as beautifully presented as it was, turned to an almost sawdust like powder when cut into. Tough, stringy little bites washed down with dark beer and out the door we went ... return? Highly unlikely given the multitude of restaurants in Mainz to enjoy!Dear Bill, thanks for your review. I am not happy to hear, we couldn't satisfy you this time. Sorry for that! Unfortunatly you didn't complain to my staff, so we didn't have a chance to make it better. Since it wasn't your first visit and obviously you have been happy with your previous visits, it's hard to understand - because we always ask our guests if they are happy with their meal. We hope, you'll it another try and please: if you not satisfied with what's on your plate: let us know! Thanx again and happy holidays.

...locate in the Hyatt hotel and facing the Rhine river, this restaurant offers a quite expensive yet fabulous brunch. There is nothing you cannot have...starting in the morning with the more traditions breakfast stuff and getting a full lunch buffet towardslater. We arrived pretty late so we only had the “lunch” part of the brunch...linguine with truffles (a lot, just as I like them), Roastbeef, king prawns, risotto, the greatest burrata you can think of, you name it. Dessert was excellent, too, especially the bread pudding with peaches and vanilla sauce, but also the rhubarb cake and the mango cream. Enjoying all of this i the first row directly by the Rhein, with super nice South American service - a perfect way to spend the day in Mainz. Also a plus: you can walk into the city from there and to the Neustadt and walk back and have the best gelato in the region just a couple of feet from the restaurant before you pick the car.... Dear TheRealGelatoGirl, thank you so much for your great review and kind words about your visit at Restaurant Bellpepper in Mainz. We are glad to hear that you had an overall amazing experience and enjoyed not only our food, but also mentioned our location. I hope we will see you again soon in Mainz and will be able to welcome you at the Restaurant Bellpepper.With warm regards,Frank HeckelmannGeneral Manager
