Nothing bad, nothing great, nothing to keep me from coming back, and nothing to bring me back other than passing by when hungry.

We visited the delightful, historical city of Trier. When it came time for a meal, we were looking for a place to dine on authentic German offerings. We were attracted by the handsome look of the Ratskeller and the menu display outside was a great help. We dined downstairs in the beautiful cellar. I highly recommend doing that for a... More

The menu was a combination of Russian and German cuisine. Definitely off beat, and the best Russian food I've had. So I'd have to say off-beat but surprisingly good. Lovely building and the cellar is lovely with it's arches.

Ate a lunch of onion and bacon quiche (which was not on the menu, but we spotted someone else eating it) at the outside market area on the square. Food was good, service was quick. Quiche was not hot, barely warm. Waitress said that is how it should be...did not make sense to us.

Visited here 1st day. Awesome food. Had Cordon Blue with 2 orders of wine. The service was great. I speak some German, but waitress spoke some English, so all was good! Place is in the plaza, so people watching was good. I will come back!

We tried 3 of the town centre restaurants and truthfully found them quite similar. But the Ratzkeller edged it for us. We liked the food and best enjoyed the view from here. Food style I would fundamentally describe as traditional German, but no complaints about that. My schnitzel was massive but delicious. My wife had a chicken salad. Also a... More
