Good food. Nicely presented but enough for a man. Romantic atmosphere with nice dark corners and a lovely bar.

Restaurant Zur Kanzel is a nice place where we found good German cuisine for a reasonable price. Nice ambiance and good service.

We sat outside in a lovely garden area and ordered rack of lamb and poached salmon. Both meals were delicious. The friendly owner recommended a delicious apple torte with ice cream and liquor. It was very good. The owner was very talkative and when it came time for the bill, he asked for a TIP before I have him our... More

Honestly, when you visit a restaurant, how often are you greeted by a handshake from the owner? From a very first second to the last, we felt like we are distant but very welcome family, loved and pampered.We got attention, we got service, we got suggestions and advice, and then we got food. Yes, food. The owner told us that... More

We have been going to Zur Kanzel for over two years now. It is by far my favorite restaurant in mainz. It is a lovely intimate place, unhurried, great food (my favourite is the pepper steak!), lovely wine and great service. I really can't recommend this place enough, every visitor we have goes there and each time we have a... More

Pleasant, friendly, efficient service Food and wines acceptable but nothing impressive. Perhaps a little over-priced but not exorbitant. Worth a second visit.

The atmosphere is lovely, the food is great and the location is in historic alt stadt, what more could you want?! I highly recommend the goat cheese salad. For dinner, you can't go wrong with the rumpsteak or the rack of lamb. For fish lovers the salmon or tuna and for those wanting German go for the pork loin filets... More

Walking down a charming street after visiting the Dom we spotted this interesting restaurant filled with history and warmth. The staff was very friendly. The beer and Rhine wine was just what the rainy day called for. I had a lovely salmon filet with a herb sauce and my husband had the schnitzel. The cabbage and potatoes are not to... More

I like absolutely everything about this restaurant. It's a small, quiet, classy place, with great service and unbelievably good food. The curried monk fish and the pfeffersteak are the two best entrees I've ever put in my mouth! Everything I've tried there has been first class--the sauces are phenomenal. And it's moderately priced. I'm an international pilot who's lived all... More

Our first night in Mainz. Nothing had really clicked. Until we walked into Zur Kanzel... We were on the earlier side of the dining experience in Mainz. The place was warm and welcoming, even picturesque. We found the owner, Guido, a talkative and friendly host, behind the bar. He welcomed us as if we were guests in his home. He... More
