This restaurant and bar are located in a beautiful old church. We found the food to be very good, excellent service and menus available in English. Good German wine list at reasonable prices. The Wiener Schnitzel dish was very good quality but far too large for me. They offered to put the left overs in a box to take home.... More

Be sure to check out the outside beer garden if the weather permits. We popped by to enjoy some drinks and listen to a musician play in the background. We opted to dine outside since the ambiance was so inviting. The service was exceptional and we were constantly checked on. The braised pork shank was fall-off-the bone goodness and the... More

The food and ambiance is very good but be warned you need CASH as no credit cards are accepted and even European euro debit cards do not work had to go to a cash machine to pay the bill what really spoiled the experience staff also is a bit distant a bit of a tourist trap

This is my favorite place to eat or have drinks in Mainz. The service is always great, the food is always tasty, the atmosphere is fantastic. I always want to try some other places when I come to Mainz but I always come back to Heiliggeist.

This old church was charming and the service was very good. The food was awesome! We went here 3 times for dinner in one week. The homemade veal sausage was great, as was the caesar salad. Highly recommended!

Food is good, nice variety. Breakfast available all day. Service is slow. Main dining area is loud so try for an outdoor table weather permitting.

This was the dining highlight of my two trips to Mainz, a really unexpected find recommended by a local. Food was both interesting and satisfying, wine was realtively inexpensive and of good quality, and what more can be said about the venue, completely unique and a wonderful experience overall.

Back here after 2 years, and the menu hasn't changed - if it isn't broken, why fix it? Tarte flambe/pizzas are 12" and well stacked, and always look fresh. I had to fulfill my schnitzel habit, I just wish I had enough German to ask for some kind of sauce, as it can be a bit dry with just potato... More

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.
