Where to Eat in Mannheim: The Best Restaurants and Bars

October 18, 2017 Esmeralda Fenner

Baden-Wurttemberg’s second-largest city after Stuttgart, Mannheim lies at the confluence of the Rhine and Neckar Rivers and is rare among German cities for its layout, a grid pattern (or “quadrates”) similar to those found in North America. The grid was originally plotted in 1606 and emanated from Friedrichsburg fortress, which later became the site of Mannheim Palace. Today, it partly houses the University of Mannheim. The city’s iconic water tower and its beautiful Luisenpark are must-sees.

Tokyo Sushi Bar

Reviewed By Em and Phil K - Frankfurt, Germany

We used to go to Tokyo Sushi Bar in front of the Mannheim train station, but for a sit-down meal, we would go to Tokyo Sushi Restaurant at Q4. Unfortunately, Tokyo Sushi Bar is now closed, and only the restaurant is left. The owners and the staff are Vietnamese, but the sushi is fantastic! The fish is fresh and the pieces are big.The menu offers some traditional sushi rolls and some delicious rolls created by the restaurant. My favorite roll is Ebi-ten Spezial. Reservation is recommended as the restaurant is always busy.

Restaurant C Five

Reviewed By steveorpington - Orpington, United Kingdom

Went on business so expected it to be good but they exceed all my expectations. The setting is magnificent, we sat outside enjoying the summer evening and the fabulous architecture, the service exemplary, the food was fantastic. I started with Lobster Ice Cream with Black Tiger Prawn and Mandarin Oil. WOW!! Absolutely fantastic. I had the New Zealand Lamb steak as a main which was cooked to perfection, pink for me, and the Pinot Noir was incredibly drinakable.I didn't have dessert but there was only four so not a massive choice. That aside the meal was thoroughly enjoyable in a great setting and great company. If you are in town then make this your first choice.

Doblers Restaurant

Reviewed By Fabian K - Frankfurt, Germany

In this classy and top French / German fine dining restaurant. An ideal place for a very special probably romantic dinner with a very attentive and friendly host, patron and "chief of staff" always ready for a small talk or advice on the big list of exquisit wines or individual wishes that will be all fulfilled. By far the best restaurant bin Mannheim despite the higher Gault Millau ranking of Da Gianni

I've been here a few times now and whether it's a Carbonara or pizza at lunch, or a 'Medaglione all Gorgonzola' in the evening the food has always been good and at a reasonable price, too. The service was friendly with an atmosphere to match.

Asia Food Ichi, original chinese Snack Restaurant

Reviewed By GiacomoD77 - Heidelberg, Germany

Good food, good cooked, almost real Chinese (at least best if compared with others in same area). But real Chinese food is far away from this "west" taste. Location is small but seems to stay at home. I would suggest just to try.

The restaurant is run by people of Indian ethnicity and as such the food is reasonably called as authentic. They have made some adjustment to cater for Western/German palate but the food itself is of good quality. The decor is well done with various Indian...MoreThank you very much for your Review.

Memoires d'Indochine

Reviewed By sweetteach - Germany

Wow! This is a fabulous find in downtown Mannheim and I drive an hour to come dine here. Reservations are recommended as this place does get busy due to the authentic, flavorful cuisine, and central location. Staff are helpful...patiently explaining the dishes and service is quick. High recommend for solo, couples, families, business, or date night. The atmosphere is casual....but trendy.

Ristorante Olivo

Reviewed By Matteo M - Luxembourg City, Luxembourg

As usual the best places to eat are hidden and not on the main street!! This restaurant is just outside Mannheim.
I discovered this place by asking local people where to find an authentic Italian restaurant and pizzeria. I went there with a few friends and we tried a very diverse set of dishes: starters (delicious carpaccio both meat and fish), mains (home made pasta and tortellini), grilled meat and fish with sides and finally lovely desserts (I particularly suggest to try tiramisu and panna cotta).
All ingredients are of the best quality and dishes are very well presented. Owners are lovely people and very relaxing athmoshere. Prices are very honest. Definitely worth trying it if you are in the Frankfurt/Heidelberg/Mannheim area.
