I used to live in Trier a few years back. Guaranteed, I would visit this restaurant at least once or twice a week! The Kartoffelsuppe mit Bockwurst is always great to get the meal started, particularly on a bitterly cold Trier night.

However, for mains, I would always go for the twice-baked jacket potatoes or the Chef-Schnitzel, a Wiener Schintzel baked inside a cheesy, creamy potato gratin. I agree with other reviewers, the portions are large and you will end up taking some home. Never a bad thing though!

It's fantastic value for money for the amount of food you get! Highly recommended!

GREAT food. HUGE portions, and a very friendly staff. More than worth the price, but very bad if you're on a diet. The portions are large enough that you can share with another person. Summer is the best time, so you can sit outside and "people watch". The cost is well below what you'd spend at any fast food place, and easy enough to find.

Very good food in the middle of the old town. Can be a bit crowded, but the waitresses handle it good. Wide variety of dishes (also traditional ones) with potatoes. Big portions, price to quality ratio good. We would go there again.

Went to the Kartoffelkiste for a friend's birthday party and then again with my parents. Enjoyed the food a lot on both occasions. Simple, hearty potato-based deliciousness.

This was the ultimate example of German cuisine, hearty meal with lots of meat and potatoes but done with a measure of finesse. Tasty and filling and great value!
