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.

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.
