I have been a visitor to the Heilig Geist in Mainz for over five years. It is known as a respected establishment in the city, offering local fare at respectable prices and generally being open to all. However, my most recent visit was the first for over twelve months and my experience did not meet expectations. A disadvantage is that... More

We chose to dine for lunch here on some recommendations from our hotel We were intrigued when we heard this was a church that was converted to a restaurant. So we gave it a shot. When you approach from the outside you can immediately recognize this was in fact once a church. Once inside you see the many arched doorways... More

A fantastic menu coupled with a great tasting and brilliant value menu and wine list make this an absolute must visit. Brunch on Sundays is a definite must attend. Love it.

A good restaurant with hearty food and large portions. Good for groups, and set menu is tasty. Good decoration but slightly noisy when full.

I came to this place on my own and had a very lovely oven baked goose. Service was fast and I could pay with my visa without a ny problems. The decor is worth a visit.

Situated in one of the side streets of Mainz you will find Helig Geist. The name means Holy Spirit. It is a church converted into a restaurant. The interior of the old church remains intact. The service is good and the food is excellent. 3 of us ordered different mains and shared. All 3 dishes were excellent: marinated beef which... More

It's one of my pit-stops while in Germany. Great food and great beer. Make sure you have a reservation, otherwise you might be left out.

This restaurant, "Holy Ghost" in German, is situated in a former meeting hall/chapel of an ancient but now-destroyed hospital. The place is dramatic. Tablecloth-dining quality food is served in a separate area within the larger hall, which serves as a giant bar.. Snack foods and breakfast are served in the bar area. The prices in both venues are quite reasonable,... More

Lovely building and interior. Quite a big restaurant and therefore busy and a bit noisy. The menu has some great choices and the quality of the food is very high. Definitely worth to go. Service is friendly. You can also now pay with cards maybe in the past only cash was accepted.

Thank kirsihaa
