Mannheim Restaurants and Bars
Maredo - Located in the pedestrianised zone in the centre of town. If you enjoy a big steak or Mexican food then this is for you. They are child friendly and the extensive menu is written in a few languages. Prices are reasonable and they do a mean schnitzel.
Buffalo Steakhouse - Friedrichsplatz 1, By the Water tower. A good restaurant for a romantic evening as the decor, candlelight and warm atmosphere are welcoming. They specialise in Argentinian cuisine so the carnivores will be happy. Food is good and more than enough.
Schutzenhaus - A great restaurant for lunch and situated in the northern suburb of Blumenau in the forest. They serve good old fashioned, hearty German fare at a fair price.
Restaurant Blass - Friedrichsplatz 12, Just opposite the Water Tower you will find this experience in goumet dining. The menu offers a unique blend of European cuisine. The decor is upmarket as are the prices.

ContraN - Werftstrasse in Jungbusch, A busy nightclub that is home to the young and fashionable. The bar is well stocked and they offer some interesting cocktails. Try their famous Absinth, they always have special offers to entice the punters.
