Used to be a church ... so interesting ambiance. Bathroom was fascinating ... there were sounds of birds like you are in a forest. Nice Sunday brunch. The schnitzel is huge. Club sandwich looked good. I had a vegetarian Thai curry dish with 3 different kinds of rice. That was okay... read more

I wanted to reserve a table for 2 persons and was told on the phone that they take only reservations for 10 persons, but we could come on chance that a table was free. So what I have never experienced.

Dinner in the church of the Holy Spirit is a unique experience. The atmosphere is top notch, and your guests might feel the distracting urge to ignore you and be constantly looking around to take in the amazing architecture of this old church. Located just off the main road by the river, this is in a convenient location to the... More

one of my favorite places in Mainz, great location, beautiful building with a lot of charme, the food is really good and creative too, only the wine list could be better, but still one of the best experiences in Mainz

i was there once, for a dinner , did not tried much-some starters and the soup. mostly went there to see the location from inside)) it is a former cathedral, if i am not mistaken, so the interier design is kept and reminds you a lot of a catholic cathedral- it is at least interesting..

Well, you wanna take dinner in a historic cathedral where Napoleon used to keep his horses? Thats the place to go. It has a wide type of menu and good portions. Everything is very good. The only small drawback is the acoustic which is accounted for by the building itself and its nice atmosphere.

We have been going there whenever we visit mainz - for over 10 years. Always good. I love the vegetarian curry dishes and their salads are huge. Unique but charming atmosphere.

This is my second time in this restaurant and I enjoyed both of them. Food is great and location is really charmy. No real need to book, since the place is huge but exactly for same reason is better for you to enter, find a seat and then ask for a waiter. Hints: - don't miss the avocado with goat... More

The food is decent. They have on the menu a sort of square shaped pizza, which is enjoyable. I've been here for dinner few times, and the food is consistent. Service is good. There is a court outiside with tables, perfect for the summertime. It is one of the best options in Mainz.
