Traditional hearty German food & beer

Had lunch here on a day trip to Trier. We had traditional food including wild boar and chose an interesting oat beer (Schöfferhofer Hefeweizer) from the small list. The atrium-style restaurant is in the courtyard of an old house, with an ancient carved stone door lintel, well restored. The front... read more

We were comfortably seated in a glass-roofed courtyard. Friendly service. Clean. There was a good choice of breakfasts. Our choices tasted good. At last, t he freshly squeezed orange juice was freshly squeezed.

We ate in the Ratskeller downstairs from the Steipe but it's part of the same restaurant. The Ratskeller offers a large vaulted cellar and a good range of German food along with some Russian specialities. Service was warm and efficient and the wine list reasonably priced. We choose mains of grilled prawns and pike perch on spinach with noodles followed... More

This place offers indoor and outdoor seating. The atmosphere is nice. The food was good. Not special, but good and fairly priced. Bathrooms are upstairs. There is a pastry shop in front. I think it might have been one of our best options. We had a grilled turkey pasta. The special was sold out but looked good.

Nice location, good food and very good selection of cakes. Recommended for a quick lunch and basic German food. Get in, and find a seat; the place is a blend of a restaurant and a cafe... Same for the cakes. After the meal you have to go and chose what you want and tell them the number of the table.... More

We ate here on our first night in Trier, the food and service were both excellent with very friendly staff. We looked all around Trier the following day and didn't see anywhere that looked as nice as here so we went back and once again the food was excellent along with the service. I would recommend this place and definitely... More

This is a restaurant with history, a beautiful building. They serve mainly German dishes that are very good to have with a pint of local beer. One downside of our visit was that it proved almost impossible to get a waiter to come to the table.

Nicely located on one of Trier's main squares, the restaurant proved disappointing. My Zander, a fresh water fish, frequently found on menus in Austria and Germany, was not a filet as listed and tasted like it might have been a different fish altogether. The chicken in my wife's salad was overdone. Maybe the kitchen had an off night, but we... More

we fell into this place because almost as soon as we arrived the heavens opened and the rain came on ! It is such a shame because Trier itself looked really good but we were really unable to explore. This cafe is a real find. It is inexpensive. We had the Leek and Cheese Soup with ground meat -which although... More
