Beautiful location great service...Pizza ok...but lasagna delicious and it vegetarian. I'm not a vegan but it was superb. White cream sauce though not a red sauce lasagna. Pizza was dry...the only complaint. Must say service experience wonderful. Restaurant gorgeous.

This place used to be an old Church so the inside is spectacular. You can either grab a drink at the bar area or have a nice dinner in the dinning area. The menu is quite good but the service is a bit slow sometimes

Food is good, although a little overpriced. The restaurant is really beautiful as it is in an ancient hospice but that also makes it pretty noisy.

I have been here a few times and really enjoyed it. Nothing fancy but good food and a beautiful place. Nice patio in the summer. I recommend it.

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
