Good service and nice food

The price is very good, located just a few meters from Porta Nigra. The service is fast and the staff was very friendly and smiling.

Next to the Römischer Kaiser is this place, more traditionel German food and a more local customers. A bit formel hospitability but this is Germany.

The first visit was great - we loved the food and enjoyed sitting on the terrace with the view of Porta Nigra. The young male waiter seemed nice. He helped us with the food and chatted about the wine. We finally found our favourite place in Trier, as we come here often. So the next time we were in town,... More

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.
