Usually, in late summer and early autumn, we have mushroom dishes in most of the restaurants. Mushrooms vary from all kinds of champignons, boleti, chantarelle and others. Mostly they are served with creamy sauce and bread dumplings, so they are very much filling!

The best mushroom meal I had so far was once in Eltville (my suggestion as alternative to tourist trap Rüdesheim), in a tiny restaurant (first photo). The second best was in St. Martin, a cute small so typical Palatinate village.

Depending on the meal and of course the restaurant, prices vary from 5 Euro to 10 and more Euro. But be warned: many restaurants, especially where the owners want quick money rather than customer satisfaction, would serve canned mushrooms. I would say that a good sign for fresh mushrooms is when the dishes are indeed announced on a special board outside of the restaurant.

I should also mention the German words for these mushrooms, like they will be announced on these typical dish tables outside of restaurants:
Pfifferling(e) = chantarelles
Steinpilz(e) = boletus/boleti
(Pfifferling = 1 mushroom, Pfifferlinge = more mushrooms :-)
