Trier is the oldest city in Germany and besides many sights and activities there are also several great food (and wine) spots in Trier. From healthy restaurants to vegetarian-friendly lunchrooms. I’m sharing all my personal best food spots in Trier on this page. All restaurants mentioned on this page serve good vegetarian options.
Masons is the perfect restaurant for a travel foodie like myself. They serve dishes from all over the world. The menu is divided by continent and each continent has several dishes from countries in it. The dishes come in tapas size so you can taste many dishes from all over the world. You choose one dish per person from the menu and as soon as it arrives, you can order your next small dish.
We started with America and went for these Pao de Queijo which are Brazilian cheese balls and the Cajun Salad with corn, chili, black beans and tortilla crisps that you seen on the background.
Other dishes we had included Hasselback Potatoes, Camembert with cranberries and Taamia, a falafel dish from Egypt with Arabic vegetables.
For dessert we had the pavlova from Australia and pancakes from Austria.
There are many vegetarian options and even quite a few vegan dishes, they’re all clearly marked on the menu.

Wine restaurant Friedrich-Wilhelm is located in the city center of Trier. They serve delicious wines with ‘down-to-earth’ dishes with a lot of love for products and tradition. They have a menu with quite a few starters, mains and desserts to choose from, but I recommend that you go for the Tapas Variation. The chef will make a big platter for you with all kinds of tapas that are all delicious. They made a vegetarian-friendly one for us and amongst other things we had sweet potatoes, spinach balls, goat . cheese sticks, hummus and pickled vegetables.
And you can accompany it with some great wines of course, after all Germany is the wine country of 2019.
In the summer they have a beautiful outdoor terrace at Weinwirtschaft Friedrich-Wilhelm and you can also reserve rooms for groups or book a winetasting.

Dean & David
Dean & David is a German chain that focusses on healthy fast food. Owner David got his inspiration for the menu on his travels. At Dean & David hey have several salads, of which 2 are vegetarian and one is vegan. The vegan falafel tahini salad is my favorite. They also have sandwiches, wraps and Good Life Bowls. I went for the latter and got the Veggie Buddha Bowl with grilled vegetables (sweet potato, aubergine, paprika, courgette), edamame, walnuts, red beets, quinoa, whole-wheat rice and soy-sesame sauce.
They also have a vegan curry bowl with red Thai curry, vegetables and crunchy onions.
Vianotta has two restaurants in Trier, one is located right next to the big basilica in Trier, around the corner from the pink Kurfürstliches Palais. And the second one is located on Petrisberg, East of the city centre. Vianotta Essen & Trinken (food and drinks) is mostly known for it’s brick oven pizza’s, but I love their flammkuchen even more. They have a nice thin crust, which I prefer over pizza. We had these flammkuchen with cherry tomatoes, black olives and courgette. As you can see, the portions are quite generous!
