Really simple idea. You seat, you eat a schnitzel and you are stuffed. I love that. It wasn't expensive even though Trier does have a tendency to overprice. I had a schnitzel with a nice sauce and a beer. It is not the finest cooking of course, but you get what you order and if you don't like potatoes or... More

My husband was born in Trier and every time we visit his hometown we try and visit Kiste. We've known this place for seventeen years and we're never disappointed. The food is plentiful and extremely good. You have to like potatoes though but who doesn't? They are cooked in very different ways and whichever you pick, you can be sure... More

We went with a friend that lives in Trier and suggested as one of its best choices here. I went there twice and both times our food was excellent! Prices are quite good, especially for the touristic center of Trier. Service was OK. Excellent inside decoration, not so outside but set in a nice pedestrian crossroad.

The food is really great, especially if you like potato dishes. Big selection, reasonable price, great taste. We stayed in Trier for almost a week and planned to get back to this restaurant, but at the very end of the dinner we changed our mind. When waiter brought us the check and put it on the table he whispered “tips... More

We ate here twice, because the food is unpretentious and satisfying. I had the baked potato with pork, while my partner had the steak ( bit overcooked and $, best to stick with pork). The servings of the potato gratin were huge and looked a bit rich for my taste, but I'm sure it appeals to others. The fries were... More

This is my favourite restaurant in Trier and once you eat here you will see why. The service is great, but the food is fantastic. And last but not least, the prices are very low.

This is a restaurant which specialises in serving potatoes in their various forms. The food is extremely good, it is reasonably priced and service is speedy and efficient. The baked potato and fried sliced potatoes are incredibly good as is the beer.

Nice little place in Trier, dont be fooled, it may look touristic, but the food is excellent, they have a wide variety of dishes to suit all, with great beer on tap and potatoe schnapps to wash it all done. the interoir is very well done and it is a perfect location to eat with a group of people.

On a two-week visit to Germany, we ate at the restaurant twice out of our own volition. That should tell you something. Great food, reasonable prices and a friendly environment.

Very different theme, but really great food. We had a potato dumpling entree and a leberkase on mashed potato entree. Both excellent and appealing. Service excellent. Restroom actually not down any stairs also nice. Convenient pedestrian zone location. Service excellent and very pleasant atmosphere.
