A very Italian restaurant

We had dinner tonight here and I must say they prepare real high quality Italian dishes. The price was reasonable too.

Single women are fairly much ignored if over the age of about 40. No attempt to offer the special of the day, which other tables were offered and which I might have liked. But the waiters clearly did not want my custom.

My friend and I enjoyed two meals at this upscale, casual restaurant. The food was excellent, my friend had Shrimp, I had Salad with Steak. We also had the antipasto plate. Everything was delicious. We especially enjoyed that we ordered a lovely wine which was decanted at the table. Our experience was so pleasant and waiter so helpful, we returned... More

This is a nice place in the shadow of the Porta nigra. We ordered from the Kleinen hunger menu and found the portions large and very reasonably priced. This place was suggested by the Rick Steves Germany guide book.

Had dinner here the first night of our stay in Trier, as the title says, I had the wiener schnitzel, this is one of the most common dishes in Germany, but generally you get it made from pork instead of veal which is the original variation. Here it was veal, and very good veal at that. My wife had the... More

Can't go wrong here for a tasty reasonably priced dinner in a friendly and welcoming environment. We both had the Weiner schnitzel--huge portion, particularly as it came with fries and a salad. Interesting breads before dinner with special curry and other butters. Very nice. Waitstaff was very nice and attentive. We'd go again

I disliked nothing about this hotel an restaurant. Very happy and nice staf. There is not much of a lobby. Frontdesk is managed by same staf as restaurant, but there was no trouble with that. Unlike the hotel next door (Roemischer Keiser) ALL staff was forthcomming and serviceminded.

We walked by the windows and noticed that the dinners looked happy and the food looked good. We saw several people having Asparagus (Spargle) so we went in for lunch. Our server didn't speak English but a helpful dinner came to our rescue. The food was really good and the asparagus was wonderful. I had excellent Weinerschnitzel. We enjoyed our... More

We were visiting Trier on a cold, grey Sunday. Enjoyed the sights and needed a good lunch. Did not want fast food or sandwich. Found this place and it was fairly full, but they found us a table for two. They greeted us with a warm smile and a bread basket with assorted butters. I ordered marinated pork (because I... More

We have not been to Trier in a while so spent part of Nov 11 there. We have been dining at Zum Christophel since 1976, always dependable food and gracious service. Walking in at noon we were surprised by the renovation, new furniture, altered table arrangement, new menu. The server said it was renovated last March. The place looks good,... More
