We where there in the summer to have a salad and something to drink. We never got the chance to eat, since the salads never made it to our table. We reminded twice the waitress, but everyone seemed overwhelmed, we waited for longer than an hour and in the end we left, paying the drinks and never receiving the salads.... More

Just around the corner from our hotel, Bistro Binokel is located in central Mannheim, a short walk away from the high street. Large drinks menu on offer, with drinks being resonably priced. The food selection is also good and we very much enjoyed our selection of tapas we chose.

I have been few times in this bar this summer as the location is great in the center of Mannheim but today I surrender... this is the last time until waitress will be monitored by a professional person in the place. Whenever you come, it seems you are not welcome, never a smile even worth you always have to move... More

We had breakfast and lunch at the same place. Very good coffee and good variety of breakfast options. Flammkuchen was very delicious. Nice outside area and good location in Mannheim.

Also have very good Flammkuchen, different types. Menu itself is not too big so that it is a good place to stop when you not in the mood for something special or much. Location downtown but still very nice to sit outside. Service very nice.

We had the flammkuchen and the Palatinate something. Both were very good. The apple strudel was the best ever and the waiter also chose us a nice beer. I highly recommend this place.

I was in Mannheim for a week traveling around local towns in the region. After several days of traditional German food, I was looking for something a little different. I was walking around town and checking the local restaurants, but nothing jumped out. I happened across the local roller blading club that blades through the city every other Wednesday. I... More

I only had beer but it was made nicer by the surroundings. The terrace is really well placed in a tree covered open pedestrian square.

This is a café in the style of a Parisian Brassiere and is warm and cozy. There are not so many tables so it might be best to make a reservation. We had dinner here and had tapas to start which were quite good. They serve the usual bistro type main courses pasta, flammkuchen. Salads and German fare. The selection... More
