One of our favorite restaurants and wine bars in Mainz. If with a group, make a reservation beforehand. The new owners continue the good work of their predecessors and added an interesting modern twist to local dishes. Listen to the wine advise!

It's such a great place to enjoy the local wine and food. The building itself shows the history of the place, and the wines are all good and great price. This is one of my best place for my dining as I visit Mainz.

This place is very nice for enjoying good wine. Consider the food here more as something to feed you and go with the wine. The food is not bad but also nothing special. The place itself is very nice with a classical wooden interior.

It is / does what it seems to claim to be: good honest local food and some very nice wine at very reasonable prices. Make sure you leave room for a desert. The pancakes were great and the creme brulee was (apparently) brilliant.

We had heard Zum Beichstuhl highly recommended as a great example of a typical Mainz Weinstübe so our expectations were quite high. maybe too high. The food was fine. Our asparagus soup was OK, but nothing more. my main course of pork was very tasty, nicely cooked so that the meat was nicely moist and the herby crust was good.... More

My husband and I stumbled upon Zum Beichtstuhl - lucky us! We were early enough that we didn't need a reservation, and were able to sit on the patio. We started out with 2 dishes - a sausage platter and a cheese plate. Such a perfect complement to the fabulous wines that our waiter suggested! We then went on to... More

Visiting from The States for my cousin’s wedding (and surprising the rest of the relatives), we came to Zum Beichstuhl (the “confessional” in English) for what would be a rehearsal dinner in the USA. This restaurant was perfect on all counts. The physical restaurant itself is charming, the service was amazing (my husband doesn’t speak German so all the staff... More

In general, I found German food a little uninspiring and heavy. But this place had very good local food, including a beautiful fig salad when I visited late August. Staff were helpful, recommended wonderful wine, as I'm not familiar with German varietals, and spoke perfect English to account for my utter lack of Deutsche! My favorite meal in Germany, particularly... More

Had dinner there while on a business trip in Mainz. Was leasantly surprised by how nice the old city was. Dropped in on this restaurant as it had favorable reviews. While it has nice outdoor seating, all tables were occupied by groups of friends and families, when asked if there was available outdoor seating, the waiter proposed I sit with... More

This a tiny place, filled with locals, on a small street just outside the tourist area. The food was excellent - based on local produce, well cooked and not too salty. Everyone was very friendly and the staff spoke some English.
