Just spent a week in Germany and was somewhat disappointed with the quality of food (and the cost post BREXIT). However, we found this peach of a restaurant more or less at the end of the street where we were staying. It is in a converted station Trier Sud) so be prepared for a large dining room with a high...

The high ceiling and windows of an old railway station make for a unique setting for a restaurant. Add to that well prepared and presented meals by beautiful and courteous waitresses and you have a winning. Waiting time for meals might be a bit long but it is worth the wait.

very tasty food in a beautifully designed space. The hall of the old railway station has been renovated and turned into a modern and urban restaurant space. The food was delicious, the wines we chose add to the treat and the service was friendly and knowledgable. There was never a hassle to change dishes to cater vegetarian or children´s needs.

We arrived in Trier late in the evening so tried this restaurant as it was near the hotel and had been recommended. We were not disappointed. The meal was delicious and the wine good and a reasonable price,. The only downside was that this was a Friday night and only one other table was occupied so it was a bit... More

We chose this restaurant because it was closee to the hotel and we were too tired to walk a great distance. We expected a fairly casual, quick dinner and were very pleasantly surprised to find a really nice place with excellent, continental food. Service was good but the food was superb.

My wife and I dined there last night. exceptional food, not cheap, but high quality. we thoroughly enjoyed the evening. I had the rack of lamb that was perfectly done. My wife had the chicken infused with mushrooms. Good wine list in a unique setting. In my opinion the best restaurant in Trier. These people know what they are doing.

Great schnitzel. A short walk from our hotel (Hugo Villa) on a rainy evening outside of the center of Trier.

The building is charming and removed from the main city, near a train station. Inside, tables lack privacy, but there is also a small terrace. The music is one of their best features! None of that outdated 80s music you hear in many German restaurants. We made a reservation for 21.00 and the place was nearly empty. The small morsels... More

We had a lovely dinner at A la Minute in early May. The food was fresh and delicious, service promt and friendly. Restaurant is situated in old train station which gives it a unique atmosphere. The almost fine dining experience was defenitely our best dinner in Trier where we stayed for three days.
