Even though this restaurant is out of the way, it is definately worth a visit. It is bit daunting at first as the whole menu is written on the wall and it is up to you to select how much you want of what. The staff are very attentive and it is very easy and quick to order more (we order more Chorzio, it was hard to resist). The house Rioja was really nice and very smooth.
Booking recommended and the restaurant is a bit on the small side, so you will have to squeeze past people to getin and out.

I have to admit that I am only giving this restaurant four stars because it seems a bit overrated. Yes, it is very good. The food is excellent and the service is helpful and accomodating. However, it was nearly impossible to get a reservation on the weekend (without about a month's advance notice) . This is very unusual for a small town like Trier and I think that the Ferrys in particular has been hyped to such a degree that it's hard to tell whether you really enjoy it or just enjoy having won the race for a table.
That being said, my friends and I had a great time and will definitely come back. My recommendations for eating (I was driving and couldn't have any of the excellent wine selection) are:
patatas bravas
prunes in bacon
spinach-cheese croquettes
sherry chicken
manchego cheese
scampi a la plancha

I was not too fond of the fried mushrooms (seemed quite simple and bland) or the anchovies on toast.

You have to make a reservation. But it is very worth it. Real friendly and good service.
Good food and a lot of fun in this hip place.

Nice, but totally overhyped Tapas Restaurant. Without a reservation you'll have no chance to get a table.
