Good but bring your credit card !

We had a meal in Bagatelle at the end of July for a family of six. The setting, right on the Mosel, is great. We sat outside and had a perfect view of the river. This restaurant would project it's image as "fine dining" which is fair enough. The staff are friendly and relatively efficient if a... read more

Just recently went there with friends that we were visiting while in Germany. The service was outstanding and the food beyond good. They are small portions but by the time one finishes up, hours and hours later, you are more than satisfied. The four courses (if that is what you choose) come about every 1/2 hour or so and inbetween... More

Small unassuming front should not fool you: this is a great place for not-too-pricey gourmet dining. Very rarely can you have a 4 +2 prestarters menu without at least one dish being a bit boring - not so here. Moreover, the vegetarian menu was also very strong, a rare treat. And did I mention the reasonably priced all-Mosel wine menu... More

We had a great experience at this restaurant which offers three different and original menus. We selected the six-course vegetarian menu and we were positively surprised by the high quality of the ingredients, the originality of their preparation and their wonderful taste. We were delighted. The desert was also great. This is for sure one of the very few restaurants... More

My wife and were looking forward to a cosy and romantic dinner (Valentine's day) but what we got was an excruciating test of patience. I made the reservation directly with the owner who was polite on the phone and made it a point to mention that our table would be upstairs in the "fireplace" room. Upon arrival I mentioned my...

I found this restaurant after stumbling through a rainy evening along the Mosel, hungry and looking for satisfaction. I just saw that there was a restaurant not far from my hostel, and as I walked back to investigate it after checking it, it began to rain or at least mist heavily upon me. Eager to get inside to warmth and... More

I did not review this restaurant a couple of years ago when we were in Trier but the previous review prompts me to do so because we had quite the opposite experience, We also had a several-course meal prepared by the owner...although since I know a small amount of German, he did point-out which items on the menu he was...

Food searingly oversalted, clumsily seasoned, and excessively long to prepare (1hr 45 mins for the main course). Prices excessive IMO for the mediocre quality of the food ingredients. Serious attitude problem with the owner, in our opinion overbearing and arrogant, with a bullying and intimidating atmosphere towards us, masquerading as "trying to make a menu for us". Refused to let... More
