Old World Character & Fine Dining!

We had dinner here after looking at the nice wooden paneled rooms and the fine choices on the menu. We were on the early side and there were few others in the restaurant. Service was prompt and attentive and the food and beverages were just what we wanted. It was a very pleasing experience.

We had dinner here on a warm summer's evening and were extremely impressed. Service was friendly and efficient, and the food came quickly and was delicious - much better than a lot of the bland food we had at a couple of other German restaurants in the city. We liked it so much that we returned the next day for... More

I have eaten in this restaurant every time I have visited Dresden. I have always been made welcome, the staff are very friendly. It is right in next to the Frauenkirche in the small square in Dresden, only a short walk to the river. The food is excellent, well cooked and well presented. Try the Bok beer, its excellent.

Convenient to hotel, nice ambience, but the food struck me as ordinary. Good beer selection. Service was ok.

My husband and I had dinner here on Sept. 26 before going to a concert at the Frauenkirche. We found the restaurant in the afternoon - quite empty but made reservations. I am so glad we did - it was packed by 6 o'clock! We enjoyed 2 pints of local beer, 2 glasses of Riesling, and 2 platters of roast... More

Chose this restaurant instead of the Augustiner Brauhaus next door due to the food offering - big mistake! I could have left the cucumber salad from the meal next door. We both chose the summer paprika chicken with pasta in paprika sauce and it was like gloop! Pasta well over cooked and unappealing and chicken barely cooked. Beer was ok... More

You go to these sort of places to sit out in the square and people watch, food is secondary. We had great beer and good food, sadly a downpour interrupted our meal but there was no room inside the restaurant so we sat and shivered watching a windswept empty square while we finished our meal with the waitress stacking up...

Having read positive reviews on TripAdvisor we made for this restaurant on our first Dresden evening, as it was next to our hotel. However we were rather disappointed, as it didn't live up to our expectations. The waiter was miserable - he looked as if he really didn't enjoy his job and the food was just OK. The friends we...

While accommodation disappointed me this trip to Germany, going out and eating did not. This is a great spot to eat during the day in the square. Great location. The guy who served us was a true gent. The food was excellent. I had a German stew while my dad has a schnitzel which he could not finish. That washed... More

Try their Bock Dunkel beer. One of the best I've had in Germany. Food was great as well. Everything at the table was excellent. The waitstaff was friendly and helped us order. He also provided recommendations.
