This is a nice place overlooking the Rhine where you can enjoy lunch or dinner. Definitely make reservations. It's a working boathouse, with the lovely restaurant on one side and facilities for crews on the other. You can look at the ribbons and trophies on...More

Because of its location which is on the Mainz side of Rhein I love to go to this restaurant. Mostly if the weather is sunny.. it has a really nice view.. I ordered cheese cake and coffee and they were ok.
