Tired out of both transatlantic and domestic connection flights, I asked my hotel's reception just for a "good typical German fare". I have to thank the receptionist. I showed up at Kartoffel around 10:30pm of a freezing evening. I was very politely told that kitchen would close soon, but I was gently seated notwithstanding. I was left all my time... More

Good choice of wines and beers, and a very full menu. Very quick efficient service and the food was hot and very good, ranging from steaks to a vegan meal on our table and all served up under 10 minutes.

We came in Saturday late afternoon for dinner because we have a toddler with an early bedtime. It wasn't super crowded, but there were people there. There was no host so we took a seat. The entire experience can be summed up by saying we felt that our presence was an inconvenience to the waiter. He was rushed, short, rude... More

I found this place upon TripAdvisor recommendation and must agree with most of the reviewers that it is a great restaurant to visit in Trier. I have had a potato soup and wurst-salat (sausages salad) along with the local beer. I sat on the terrace and though the restaurant in summer was packed I got the right and fast service.... More

My husband and I went here to eat on our honeymoon. It was by far the best meal that I have ever eaten in my life. Very tasteful atmosphere. Very clean bathrooms. Very friendly service and delicious food. I recommend the Schnitzel.

After reading the positive reviews regarding this restaurant, we decided to give it a go on our trip to Trier. The food was tasty enough and hearty (as its name suggests, potatoes feature prominently), and certainly offered us a chance to sample traditional German cuisine. However, felt that the staff could have been more welcoming, especially towards our baby daughter.... More

If you want to try great German food in a place with real atmosphere, come here. It's busy every night but they managed to fit us in - we enjoyed it so much came back for more the next night. There are many locals using this restaurant, not just tourists, that's always a good sign. Prices pretty reasonable as well.

A nice casual restaurant but good wine and beer list. The staff are very friendly and you are seated quickly even in a busy night. Waiter spoke English and appreciated my attempt at German , I ordered a glass of Tempranillo which was sumptuous and the Schnitzel Zweierlei, it was mouth watering! The pepper sauce perfect spiciness and the mushrooms... More
