Nice atmosphere, good food

This restaurant is located at an old church and its atmosphere is really nice, as the space is huge and the arquitecture is nice. The food was abundant and well prepared. Courses are big, so it was a mistake to order a pizza as a starter: too much food for dinner!

Awesome restaurant set in an old church. Cathedral-like interior. Had a massive schnitzel that was crisp on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside. Friend had a club sandwich that he said was the best he ever had. All food ordered by our group looked and smelled delicious. Nice beer selection. Friendly service. Definitely recommend.

The Heilig Geist looks like an old church but was during history a hospital and later on a dancebar. Now since years it is an international Restaurant with great food, Menue is changing from time to time but always at a high level. And you will always get different kinds of Croustarts ( like a french style of a kind... More

I can't provide better pictures than those already on their website and/or shared by other Advisors. I ordered the Ricotta-pumpkin-lasagne which I was told is one of their most popular dishes. It arrived less than 10 minutes after I ordered it --- and I had barely touched what I thought was to be my pre-dinner cocktail. :-) The lasagne was... More

Just sitting and spending some time in this beautiful transformed church interior is a treat. But beyond that, every time we have been there, the food has been exceptional. There is a wide choice of very refined dishes, every new one I tried was memorable, subtle and perfumed. Don't hesitate to ask for an english menu, it is really worth... More

You could call it Italian restaurant mainly. The venue is amazing. It is an old convent in the centre of the city. The toilets are worth a visit!

The moment you enter the amazing atmosphere almost overwhelms you. This should be a must-see visit if only for drinks. Incredible adaption of a former church hospital building into a unique dining environment.

This place was marvelous. The food and service were top notch. The Bier selection was somewhat lacking though.

Upon arrival, the restaurant was beautiful and lavish. The service was excellent but the meal was nothing about average. I couldn't believe that the food wasn't better. It was not bad but it wasn't good, just average. The staff worked hard at assisting us.

Friendly staff, good food, very nice gothic style old building. Unfortunately very noisy and therefore hard to keep up a conversation. I liked the potato soup.
