We had an enjoyable dinner in this beautiful setting. We arrived without reservations but had no trouble getting good seating. We began with South Tyrolean tarte with bacon and onion that we shared. For mains we had Chef's Plate with various fish and the best of beef. All delicious. Not resisting desserts, we went for the cheese mousse with rhubarb... More

Very nice scene and great food. They have modern German food so it is very refreshing not to have too eat something so heavy for a change while in Germany. The reason I don't rate it 5 stars is because the service was precise yet robotic, not a charming or welcoming environment. Not a cheap bite but fair prices.

Everything we ordered was amazing, staff was very friendly and had menus in English. The food did take some time to arrive; but it was worth the wait.

Even with no reservations, the four of us were seated immediately albeit in what appeared to be an overflow room. Nonetheless, the staff was attentive, professional and courteous, the food was absolutely outstanding, and the prices reasonable for the quality! The tuba steak was delicious and its accompaniment of Asian salad and jasmine rice made for a well balanced theater... More

Kastenmeiers a "top class" restaurant in Dresden, was recommended to us for fine dining from one of the staff working at the Reception of Hotel Louis Jacob in Hamburg where we were staying in December. Reservations were made for us for dinner from Hamburg before we left for Dresden. We were fortunate and thankful to get this tip, as the... More

The outside of the restaurant is as beautiful as its historical surroundings. Food is great! We had the 4 dish "surprise-course" and every dish was as amazing as the other. Good service and charming inside.

We had a very nice meal in this restaurant. The interior of this palace is very elegant and contemporary. Every course of the surprise menu was delicious. The waitress was a great help to choose the right wine. A very pleasant experience we would like to recommend.

Surprisingly a top fish restaurant in inland Germany. high quality of fish -but you pay for it-, nice atmosphere in a modern decorated Palace in the historic old town of Dresde. Very expensive wines. I wonder why wines in Germany get so pricy in restaurants.The service has much to learn, very little professional. They brought us dishes ordered by other... More

I liked the restaurant. It is an unsual place as there is a contrast of the outside design with the appearance inside. From the outside it looks like a palace from the 18-th century . The inside is a combination of brick walls without any decoration reflecting all the reconstructions and big mirrors. The atmosphere is warm. As an indicator:... More

We went here on the recommendation of a German guide who rated it the best restaurant in Dresden. People who have been making negative comments must have been to a different place. The atmosphere is relaxed, staff friendly and the food exceptional. There is no point in going there if you don't like fish. What they served us was first... More
