We were in Mainz for only one night and friends recommended this restaurant? The atmosphere was excellent. When we got there there weren't any free tables and the waitress was excellent and found us a table very quickly. We had the schnitzel with fired parsley on top and it was very nice. A wonderful experience!

I invited my female friend in Mainz, and her fiancèe for dinner. My friend suggested that we should go to the restaurant Heilig Geist. The food was acceptable, but the service was below the standard I had anticipated for a restaurant in the middle of the town. The waiter had also little knowledge of wine, even ordinary German white wines.... More

We tend to visit Heilig Geist at least once a year for our valentine's day dinner with my husband. We just love the schnitzel. It's made of calf meat and served with fried parsley. At summer they have delicious virgin frozen margaritas and the menu is slightly different to adjust to summer weather. We even saw a politician having a... More

Large dining room/hall with a lot of atmosphere (and challanging acustics, when full) as well as nice outdoor seating in the middle of the city. Good mix of smaller and larger dishes, usually to everybodies taste.

This is a great restaurant. Very trendy inside. This is a re-purposed cathedral with excellent cuisine! This is one of those don't miss places in Mainz!!!

The ambience is very classy, the venue originally a medieval religious hospice. It is located right where the former city wall was, half within the city, half outside. The very special religious atmosphere feels like dining in an old church and we have always enjoyed the food and ambience. This place could be the perfect place for Christmas and Advent.... More

This is the first place we had dinner at on our two week vacation. Delicious food, great service, friendly wait staff, beautiful internal arched building that used to be a hospital.

Here is another place that I'm rating that seems to have outstanding reviews, yet when I come here to experience it, I'm once again disappointed. I arrived at the Heiliggeist at about 7:20pm. I waited about 5 minutes to order drinks. Then I waited about an hour to get another drink and actually order my food. Well another hour goes... More

it's just another beer joint, there is thousands of them in Germany, the trick is that it's in a former church from the middle ages. I liked the venue, the service and food were just average.

When is this restaurant joining the 21.Century accepting Visa,MasterCard or EC Karte. Was embarrassed not to have enough money because either of my cards was accepted. Note to owner. You will loose business. You lost my future business already.
