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.

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.

We came across this restaurant on a Thursday evening in Mainz. It was packed, and we thought it must be good. After a short waiting time our table was ready. We were not disappointed: really tasty and good food, nice drinks and perfect service. We...More

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.
