“Fancy location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

Fancy Location in the middle of town. Not very Special from the outside the interior is astonishing. The Food is very nice, the lightning great and thecharacter of the church still quiet visible. I will visit again this place with great pleasure.

“Nice Ambience With Good Food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

Although a converted church, the atmosphere is definitely not holy. The food was good, as was the service. The Viennese Schnitzel was particularly good.

Good choice of wines and beers to go with the food!

Nice ambience - lots of space around the tables.

“Fantastic ambience, below par food!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

'The Church' is a beautiful converted building with a real ambience and imposing setting. Unfortunately this setting is let down by the menu choice and quality of food - which is really surprising as we last went when it first opened and the food was top notch.
Positives are the staff (absolutely brilliant attention to detail and manner) plus the setting in a converted church with high vaulted ceilings and stunning stained glass windows.
Negatives are the menu, which lacks in originality and choice, plus the actual food itself. A below average starter of Chicken Sate was cold and smacked of being mass produced then hurriedly pushed out. Unfortunately this was better than the mains of Thai Soup (a tin of coconut milk with a decent Thai taste but lacking any depth or other ingredients unless you count a couple of scraggly bean sprouts and three small pieces of chicken) and a Zander with Lentils (totally lacking in flavour and substance despite looking good) which disappointed at every level.
The attitude and demeanour of the staff is great but that alone cannot justify paying a lot of money for food which is far below par and easily beaten for taste in a multitude of eating places in Bielefeld.

“A must just for the atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Even on a week night, it can be busy, but one never feels rushed. The menu - also available in English - has options for everyone: pasta, vegitarian, salads, curry, pizza, etc. The bar offers a wide variety of drinks and the bartenders are talented.

What really makes this restaurant stand out is the location - an old church. The architecture and stained glass windows offer a strong, yet beautiful contrast to the sleek design of the bar and tables.

“A nice place at any time - breakfast, lunch, dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

it doesn"t matter at what time I'm there it is always nice. You can just enjoy a cup of coffee or have a nice dinner. It is in an old church and does have a special atmosphere.
Give it a try and enjoy it.
You NEED to book in advance.
