Delicious Meal

After spending 14 hours traveling from the USA, my friend and I were both starving. We had heard about Kartoffell Kiste from our research, and we were not disappointed. The food was amazing, and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend this restaurant

I was reluctant to go to this place because it was heavily advertised in the hotel I was staying. I thought it was a kind of "tourist trap". However, I have to admit that it was the best meal I had in Trier by far. As an entrant I had potato bread with a white dip that it was quite... More

The menu is an excellent combination of German food with French infusion, the portions are very generous, the taste is superb, the service is just right. The cost is minimal. Specialties of the region, its worth the wait in line, make sure you are hungry. Very soft of the wallet. I enjoyed it all and would visit again.

We wanted to lunch here on a Saturday noon when visiting Trier. The restaurant can accommodate many people, but we had to queue a few minutes at 13.30 however. Inside the restaurant, you will not find 'quietness' as there is a lot of activity : waiters walking around, people coming in/leaving but however once seated at a table, you can... More

The food here is amazing, served as large plates and drinks. Of course the German specialties like schnitzel are highlight, but don't miss out on some other delecatable items. Get the Kartoffelsuppe mit Blutwurst. It was one of the best soups I have ever had, and an excellent way to try blutwurst. The entrees come with a choice of sides,... More

The beloved and I, plus a friend, were in Trier for the day and after much sight seeing were a little hungry and more than a little footsore. The Kartoffel-Restaurant-Kiste was in front of us with plenty of people sitting down so we took a chance and grabbed ourselves a table. I always marvel at how restaurants in Germany seem... More

One of the best restaurants I've eaten at so far in Germany, great atmosphere and location along the walkplatz in Trier. The Trierer Gefültte has been my top choice and my recommendation to others eager to have the best. The wait staff is very kind and attentive and can speak English aswell. Menus are also bilingual which helps you understand... More

We had seen this place earlier on our trip and saw that the extensive menu was also in English and French, so we decided to go on a Sunday evening - especially as it looked a bit more casual and we didn't fancy getting dolled up! I had the schnitzel in a beer batter, covered in onions and topped with... More
