main reason for visiting is the location which is inside an old church; as others have indicated the service can be slow and you generally need to pay in cash; food was quite good overall

Had dinner at this restaurant in the heart of Mainz. The restaurant itself is worth a visit. It is in an old church that over the years was renovated. It also has s great long bar, if you only want a drink. I found the service to be very erratic and slow. The servers were nice, but they just need... More

Have been at the Heiliggeist many times of the last 3-4 years. Staff has always friendly, accommodating and very efficient. Slextion of beers great, especially, with the addition of the IPA. Every dish i have tried was deligious. Wonderful to sit inside and in the yard.

Beautiful setting. Menu options good and they have a well prepared allergy menu....but if you are gluten free there were only two options.....bratwurst or carpaccio. Service was very slow......it was very busy and friends who have been before say its's normally faster.

Visited with a group of friends whilst in the area. The Christmas market was on at the same time. Friendly bustling place, quite large and spacious. The food was really nice, well cooked and served by friendly staff. There is a good selection of whiskies too.

Four of us had Sunday dinner here on the recommendation of our hotel in Frankfurt. We wanted to visit a nearby town and also have dinner there. The restaurant is large but nicely laid out with tables and some booths as well as tables outdoors. The Wiener schnitzel was very good and the Pork hock was described as the best... More

Apparently its a specialty, but its just an average pizza. Our kids really enjoyed the place. Value was average. Service was friendly but slow. i would give it another chance but choose something different on... More

It's hard to believe this beautiful Romanesque cathedral was damaged during WWII, as the repairs following the war appear seamless. Newer windows are the only hint of previous damage that remains visible to the casual viewer. The warm pink sandstone walls create a welcoming space that is visually attractive and less cluttered than many of the later baroque churches found... More

We sat outside and it was just beautiful, the service was friendly and nice and our food was very good. the 'pizza' was excellent, full of flavor, but not really my idea of pizza, a German variation that was VERY good!
