Landeshauptstadt Mainz Direkt zum Inhalt
There’s an abundance of Italian, Turkish, Greek, Chinese and Thai restaurants and even a number of sushi places. Other ethnic favourites are Spanish as well Serbo-Croatian-Slovenian restaurants. Continental, upscale new German cuisine, typical Mainz town fare, regional specialties (smoked meats and sausages with sauerkraut, innumerable potato delicacies, soups and other dishes made with wine, Rhenish favorites like Rhine salmon and sauerbraten).
The term “wine restaurant” is a redundancy in Mainz: no decent restaurant could possibly exist here without at least several offerings from different vineyard sites of Rheinhessen.
There are over a hundred local restaurants in and around Mainz serving homemade meals and local wines known as Strausswirtschaft or Besenwirtschaft. They are easily reached by car, taxi or bike.
