A very satisfied Diner.

We had dinner here late in September but it was warm enough that evening to sit outside to take in the view. The main square is gorgeous, painstakingly recreated after being devastated during WWII. The food was tasty. The service was fine and the price affordable for us budget travelers. Also... read more

We had dinner here late in September but it was warm enough that evening to sit outside to take in the view. The main square is gorgeous, painstakingly recreated after being devastated during WWII. The food was tasty. The service was fine and the price affordable for us budget travelers. Also appreciated the English menus.

In despite of many visits we to Trier, today been our first time in this restaurant. The owner of the Crocodile restaurant in Trier is currently taking care of Zur Steipe. We had a nice fish called Loup de Mer, was nicely presented with some pasta. The atmosphere was nice and the restaurant was full. The house wine is good... More

My husband and I happened upon this place while wondering around the main square looking for dinner. The prices looked reasonable so we decided to stay, and I'm glad we did! I had the pumpkin pesto pasta and my husband had the regular pesto pasta with turkey, we were both very happy with our choices. The beer and wine were... More

Location, location, location - the restaurant is on the hauptmarkt and serves very good German fare - the wife had a Strammer Max which is standard. I lucked into schweine medallions with pfefferrahmpfifferlinge sauce (pepper cream chanterelle) which was fantastic. If you are in the area checking out the market cross and fountain - stop by.

Trier is a very pleasant place with great architecture. Zur Steipe building is also good to look at. We needed a drink and popped in here. The selection of cakes was fantastic. We were met at the counter by a pleasant lady who after acknowledging my intro in German kindly switched to English to explain we select a cake and... More

I've lived in Germany for 14 years and this is by far the most unpleasant experience I have had at a German Restaurant- especially with plate prices in excess of 18 Euros. First, we entered and just stood there without a greeting as multiple employees walked past us. After standing there for some time, we finally decided to take seat... More

Trier is a nice town with much heritage; when I visited, there was also an extended Easter Market with many market stalls, live music etc. The question was, where to have a late lunch. Having no information about Trier restaurants (Free wi-fi hasn't reached Trier yet), we looked around the main market place, expecting elevated prices. We could not be... More

If you are looking for rude service then this is the place for you. During our week stay in Germany this is the only place that we were made to feel unwelcome. After an unpleasant exchange with a very rude and snobbish server we decided to take our business elsewhere. Unlike the terminator, I will not be back. If you... More

Walking around Trier we just happened upon Zur Steipe... All I can say is "wow". Besides it being a perfect place for my wife and I to escape into the quiet indoors, the food was amazing. The service was great, but I won't quickly forget how nice the food was. The location was perfect and though we were staying just... More

I normally don't balk at prices but €15 for a plate of pasta too heavy on the olive oil wasn't a great value. The location and service were unbeatable though, and we enjoyed our lunch there. During our city tour we learned just how historic this place is, and that alone would make it worth visiting, as does its central... More
