Altes Haus - Bacharach

Altes Haus

Altes Haus: Downtown Dinner

An interesting experience was sitting outside at the Altes Haus, a very famous (and supposedly romantic) restaurant in the center of town. Since we had an infant in tow, however, it was prudent for us to enjoy one of the more modest outside tables. Service, food, and wine were very good... but I must admit it was somewhat unnerving for cars to pass (literally!) within inches of our seats as they drove by. The inebriated local who kept staggering over to "play" with Minifrosch didn't help the atmosphere much, either.

Favorite Dish: I had the Sülze (aspic of pork) with hard-boiled egg and vegetables. Sara had some tortellini with grated cheese and spinach. The glass of wine I had was very good, while Sara enjoyed her riesling traubensaft (grape juice).

Address: Oberstrasse 61, D-55422 Bacharach

Comparison: about average

Directions: Just about directly in the center of Bacharach on Oberstrasse, on the side farthest away from the river.

Eiscafe Italia 76 - Bacharach

Eiscafe Italia 76

Eiscafe Italia 76: Yummy Italian-style Gelato

It seems Italian-style gelaterie (ice cream parlors) are all the rage on the German tourist scene nowadays. No complaints here. A tasty example is the Italian ice cream shop right downtown. Known in some guidebooks as simply "Eis Cafe Italia," this place offers very tasty cream and fruit based gelati. This is a great place to cap off a dinner and a romantic stroll with a sweet treat.

Favorite Dish: I'm a sucker for Stracciatella, so I had a kugel (scoop) of that. Sara was fond of the Zitrone (lemon). The Riesling-flavored ice cream comes highly recommended as well.

Address: Oberstrasse 48, D-55422 Bacharach

Directions: In the town center, across the street from the Posthof.

The old carousel turned biergarten - Bacharach

RheinTerrasse: Microbrewery in the Wine Capital of Germany?

The Mini-Meet crowd wandered up Koblenzerstrasse to explore the town. Don wanted to swing by the Rhine Theater on the north side of town, so we traveled in that general direction. To our surprise, we found the theater also operated a biergarten. We stopped for a quick beverage that night, but Ingrid, Sara, Ryan and I came back the next day for lunch. It was quite a surprise to find a place specializing in beer along the Rhine, but the service, food, and beer were just fine.

Favorite Dish: I had Flammkuchen, an Alsatian dish that's sort of a cross between a pizza and a crêpe. The home-brewed beer, Bacchusbräu, was unfiltered, inexpensive, and tasty.

Address: Koblenzer Straße 14-20, D-55422 Bacharach (Rhein)

Comparison: about average

Directions: On the north side of town, co-located with the Rhein Theater.

Hahnenhof - Bacharach

Hahnenhof

Hahnenhof (Weingut Toni Jost): Tasty Wine and Snacks

Along the Rhine and Mosel, you can sometimes get an inexpensive meal at a wine shop or wine cellar. While the menu can be limited, the dishes offered are designed to go well with the wines on sale. This particular one offers very good wine with tasty food at reasonable prices. With a baby in tow, we were happy to sit in the courtyard and sample the wares offered by the Toni Jost winery.

Favorite Dish: I had the "pressack" (head cheese) with vinegar, onions, and pickles. While at first glance that doesn't sound like it would go well with wine, I reasoned that they wouldn't offer it if it didn't. Sure enough, it did go extremely well with the glass of halbtrocken (semi-dry) Spätlese I ordered. Sara had an omelet and a bottle of very tasty estate traubensaft (grape juice).

Address: Oberstrasse 14, D - 55422 Bacharach

Comparison: less expensive than average

Enjoying a Mini-Meet along the tracks - Bacharach

Enjoying a Mini-Meet along the tracks

Restaurant Kranenturm: Dinner Amid the Screaming Trains

The "Mini-Meet for Minifrosch" met here at the Restaurant Kranenturm. The food was fresh and tasty, and the service was very good. You have the choice of dining indoors, or outside on the patio overlooking the tracks. While the patio is very scenic, be warned the trains scream by at irregular intervals. Despite the risks, we chose to have the meeting and dinner outside. All had a very enjoyable time.

Favorite Dish: On special was freshly caught trout, pan-fried and served in a lemon-caper sauce with boiled potatoes. Sara, Don, and I had that, and enjoyed it very much. Ingrid, who arrived a bit later, had a pasta dish.

Address: Langstrasse 30, D-55422 Bacharach (Rhein)

Comparison: about average

Directions: Along the city wall facing the river. A few minutes walk north of the train station on Langstrasse.
