A great respite for food and relaxation after a long park walk

After visiting The Sanssouci Palace and The Orangery we were told the only place in this area of the park for food was the Dragon House not far from The Orangery. We walked on and found the Pagoda building and behind it is the restaurant. It was a great stop for sumptuous deserts and a cappuccino... read more

I was so disappointed. I thought it would be gorgeous, but small and really not impressive. It is just a small cafe that didn't look to good.

Beer is good. Main dishes are NOT German-standart big. SHOW YOUR WELCOMECARD BOOK BEFORE ASKING FOR A CHECK. Otherwise a passing grade place for refreshment from beer,ice-cream.

Lunch time and this was about the only place we were aware of in the park. Got a table outside and had to wait to get menus in English. Took awhile for the waitress to get back and get our order. I also wondered about all the asparagus dishes on the menu and tried the asparagus and potato plate. It... More

We went to the dragon house to rest a bit after the sightseeing of the Sanssouci palace. It's very comfortable to come an go by bus since there is a bus stop exactly in front of it. While walking several stairs up a hill one can already see the beautiful building with its golden dragons. Inside a nice vintage atmosphere... More

The Building is the star of the show at this restaurant in Park Sanssouci in Potsdam. It gets it's name from the many dragons that adorn the multi-tiered roof of this one time house of the large estates grapevine caretaker. There is outdoor, under umbrella, seating as well as indoor. The day was lovely in late August when I visited,... More

We were in the Sans Souci park lunchtime and thought the Drachenhaus would be a great lunch stop. It started drizzling on the way up the hill but we had an umbrella. When we arrived the large outdoor seating area looked rather bedraggled as the staff had only put up two of the four large covers. We had a look... More

May-June is "Spargel"-time in Germany, and the Drachenhaus offers several dishes , among other a delicious "Asparagus-Risotto" that was good value for money. The house is an experience in itself. And an excellent shelter on a rainy day visiting Park Sans Souci. The restaurant/cafe also offer many other interesting dishes, a rather comprehensive wine card and different sorts of coffee....

The Oriental building with a star-studded blue ceiling provides a pleasant ambiance for a meal. There is nothing wrong with the food itself, but the dishes are not very memorable either. In summer, you may try to have a coffee or drink here, or on the outdoor terrace.

Our insitut goes on a research trip each year. This time it was Berlin and we also went to Potsdam to see Sans Souci. We had scheduled a lunch at the Drachenhaus in Potsdam and were highly disappointed. The waiter wasn't present enough in our (open door) separée, which ended in colleagues getting up and to place some beverage orders.... More
