Good option for area

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... read more

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

Prompt service, delicious cakes and great prices. Lovely for a quick break while walking through the city center and beautiful surroundings.

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
