We heard about this restaurant, so we gave us a try. We had a family dinner of eight persons. Portions were great. Quality excellent. Pricing reasonable. There is nothing more to add.

The Glocke recently moved back to its original location (from across the road, which used to be the Krim) and it's been difficult to get a table ever since. Half of Trier is queuing up to see how the renovations have worked out... I finally managed to have a look myself as part of a work Christmas dinner. We were... More

Have been visiting this place for 20 years but now seems to have taken a turn for the worst. The friendly helpful staff seem to have gone and the guy that screwed up our order in 2014 still works there and was unhelpful. The restaurant has moved back from across the road to its old location. Here may lay the... More

This restaurant is ideally located just off the main square and we really could not fault it. Portions are of a very generous size and the dishes we chose were all of good quality if not excellent. Yes you will get better food but pay more, however if like us you are visiting Germany for the first time and want... More

We ate here on a Wednesday night. We didn't have reservations but had no problems getting seated. There was a hotel, now closed for renovation, across and down the street which used to house this restaurant. In fact the website for this restaurant uses a picture of the hotel. As a result we were almost fooled into thinking it was... More

The Zur Glocke is as good as it gets; wonderful food and equally wonderful service. Choosing the right dinner spot can be so difficult; so happy we settled on Zur Glocke. It was a treat!

We selected this restaurant based on other peoples reviews, and found it was well up to standard. It had a cosy atmosphere, with a varied menu and delivered large portions of tasty meals. Reasonable prices as well make this a recommended stop.

Nice traditional restaurant in an old part of the city. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good, plain, choices of meals in the style of this region. Nice choice of wines and beers too. All very well-priced. Sizeable portions. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for very good value and tasty food and drink.

Solid German food in a nice setting, staff very friendly. Found the menu a bit limited as we only really wanted a light lunch but the food was mostly main courses and substantial at that. But overall very nice with good fresh Bitburger on tap. Come hungry.
