Very friendly place that has been around for a long time and run by the family legacy. The locals love this place and is how we found it. A lot of warm and cheery folks here. The daughter is very nice and a great hostess.

The food was fabulous. Onion soup, potato cakes, beef stroganoff, sauerkraut, beer was so good. The only unexpected was that they do not take credit cards so make sure you take enough euro with you.

Nice food. Had chicken schnitzel. Fried potatoes and medium sized salad. Good service and clean. Didn't accept credit cards which I found interesting.

Not good, not bad. Standard bar grub. Good Bavarian beer and a few hot waitresses, tastier eye candy than the food itself. Again, not bad but nothing worth remembering.

Google Maps! Just type in Brauhaus zur Sonne, Sonnengässchen, Mainz... From the main square (Marktplatz) where Café Extra Blatt is, it is about 5 mins walk.
