The carrot ginger soup was amazing! The fish was not so good. The menu is a bit overpriced, but that's to be expected in a tourist area. If you can get a table outside, I highly recommend it. The prices can be easily overlooked if you can enjoy your meal with incredible views of the Semper Opera and historic downtown... More

Read the reviews so this was our first meal having just arrived. Tucked away so took a little bit of wondering whether we had missed it but when we found it what a lovely setting. Service was friendly and courteous and the meal fresh and cooked to perfection. We will go back for the kuchen after the opera!

Based on the rave reviews here we’d booked a table for our Saturday night out and were very happy to be able to sit outside after a brief shower cleared to reveal a beautiful summer rainbow. We had a breathtaking view of the Semper opera house and the Dresden Cathedral to accompany our delicious meal. Appetizers included excellent eggplant and... More

Difficult to criticize. Perhaps if it had a view of the square it would be even better. However excellent food and presentation. Atmosphere not alive and kicking but a nice place when you want to talk quietly and be unoffensive.

Service was awful and probably the worst I have ever come across in Europe. My mum ordered a salad and requested for no vinegar as she could not eat anything sour due to health reasons. The waiter made a very bad face at us and reluctantly took her order. The customer before us were also complaining to us about the... More

We went with a large group and were all delighted with this restaurant. Many in our party went back again the following night. It is not quite as good as the Kastenmeirs fish restaurant but was considerably cheaper at 100 euros per couple. I had pumpkin soup followed by venison and both were near perfect. Service was good and staff... More

Had a lunch and a dinner here and was very impressed. Lunch was had indoors (blowing outside) and the food and service were excellent. I had the home smoked fillet of pike with Dijon mustard sauce, sauerkraut and mashed potatoes washed down with an excellent pilsener. I did not have bookings for dinner but arrived early and got a table... More

Food was excellent and service was great. We had a late lunch here the day we arrived. Service was excellent as was the food. Not too expensive.

Initially we failed to find the restaurant so had a disappointing dinner elsewhere but the following day we stumbled on it and had an excellent simple lunch of an onion tart with a herb cream sauce and a salad. It was good enough to bring us back the following evening and we had an excellent dinner of a sea scallops... More
