Off on a side street the entrance is deceiving. Once we walked in, the place was quite large and a lively place. It had a good-sized bar, so must be a locals hangout. Good service and excellent food.

Had dinner here as part of a team dinner for work. The beer list was great, covering all of the beers from around Germany, from Berliner Weiss to Kolsch. House made wursts were excellent. The atmosphere was nice, with old cathedral ceilings. It was a bit noisy due to the open floor plan and acoustics, but we were having more... More

The restaurant is aptly named (meaning "Holy Spirit"), as it's in a converted church, not far from Mainz's 1000-year-old cathedral. In late spring, everyone ate outdoors in the large seating area in front of the building. The menu is broad and gives several choices, either for a small meal or for a full dinner. You won't be rushed as you... More

We went here after searching for nearby decent German restaurants near our accommodation and were pleasantly surprised. Which was just as well because we were meeting family members. We sat outside, it was a downcast pleasant normal day in Mainz but perfect setting. They have very large outside and indoor seating areas, which looks like they can accommodate for large... More

First point to make is that they do not accept credit or debit cards so make sure you have cash! The setting is beautiful with indoor and outdoor seating. It's asparagus season so we had to try it.... It's not small and green like we get at home but large and off white. It was tasty though, I had mine... More

Had dinner here with a large group (for business). The food and the service were both very good. Authentic German food and a decent wine selection. The ambience is neat since this is a converted church.

Wonderfully atmospheric repurposed building. Since this is the start of asparagus season, that's what we ordered. The asparagus soup was very creamy. But light on asparagus; asparagus with grilled ham was good, once the rather strange "hollandaise" was put aside; asparagus with house-brined salmon was the best of the bunch. Full wine/beer/cocktail menu. As mentioned in other reviews, NO credit... More

Gear food and services they have an English menu and vegetarian options and seasonal specials. Tri- soups are particularly good.

Great athmosphere but kind of noisy, but it's definatly worth a visit. We took the veal schnitzel from the menue and i have nothing bad to say about it was very nice and the service was friendly although it was very crowded. But be warned you might get tired from the high volume, we decided to take the coffee outside... More

This is a former church turned into a classy restaurant with a wonderful courtyard for outside dining during summer wheather. Their flammkuchen is perhaps one of the best I've had during my 10 year stay in Germany.
