Amazing setting, excelent service

The location of this restaurant is unique: just in front of the Oper House and next to the Zwinger. Beautiful scenery, great service and good food.

A lovely place for a quiet meal away from the noise of the more tourist area. A smallish but excellent menu, lovely service, and no rush. Not the cheapest but well worth it.

This was a wonderful dining experience. The waitress gave excellent wine suggestions and the food was delicious. I would highly recommend dining outside on a nice evening there.

On my first afternoon in Dresden I spent most of my time in and around the Zwinger complex. It followed that I decided to have dinner in the same area. Tucked into a corner of the Zwinger was a charming restaurant Alte Meister. The outdoor dining area was arranged patio style and there was a good amount of space between... More

This lovely café and restaurant is tucked away next to the Zwinger in the former studio of Albert Braun, who directed its renovation after World War II. There's outdoor seating with large and small tables and cozy indoor seating as well. I had several dinners here while on business, and thoroughly enjoyed the food, service and relaxed atmosphere both inside... More

We visited this place by chance and we were very happy with what we got. Nice local and affordable food. I remember we paid around 15eur per person with the drink included.

We were four who had coffee and cake one day - just fine. The next evening we went back for dinner after the Opera - it is located 100 meters from the Opera. We all had Rosa Rinderfilet (steak). One asked for medium and the rest for medium-rare - and the result was perfect. The restaurant itself is more like... More

We had dinner here one night while visiting the city. They serve typical German fare : it's all very fattening and very delicious. Reasonably priced, with cheerful service. I would come here again.

This restaurant is conveniently located in the Zwinger. The meal was okay - nothing special. The menu was pretty limited. We actually preferred lunch the next day at another restaurant on the grounds.
