We didn't realize that there was a tour here that you were able to do while visiting Leipzig. We scheduled a tour at the restaurant for the historical cellars. It was so interesting and if you like Faust or Martin Luther, you need to do it. The restaurant is great, but the tour certainly was a great addition to our... More

This is definitely the place for a quiet or romantic dinner. It is geared very much to the German tourist trading on its supposed links to the Faust legend. It is a barn of a place and consequently very noisy, especially as they accommodate a lot of tourist groups. The service was reasonably efficient although we had a number of... More

This restaurant came up on tripadvisor with great reviews so we thought it worth a try, we were not disappointed! It was a busy Saturday night but the staff found us a table for 4 as soon as we arrived. The atmosphere was typical beer hall with lots of chat and people enjoying themselves. The staff were attentive throughout the... More

This restaurant is a landmark. It consists of a huge cellar room. The food is (surprisingly) excellent. Be sure to try it.

They where not really interested in serving us an evening meal and I could not see a single smile in the faces of the staff. The meal was average and the "pudding" or desert a catastrophy of a half raw stuffed apple and a bit of ice cream
