We went to this restaurant based on the positive review here on trip advisor. The atmosphere and the decorations of the restaurant are good. The service was OK and the food wasn't anything special. We had lunch there. We ordered the lobster entree dish (30 euros), the trout dish (20 euros) and some prawns, vegetables and pasta which were not... More

if you like fish, then you can't miss Kastenmeiers. Everythings was excellent: - the ambiance: very nice dining room, with great decorations and subtle lights - the service: mostly young people, but very smart and up-to-speed - and the fish! Of course they have other type of food, but going to Kastenmeiers and eating meat would be missing the point...... More

Kastenmeiers is one of the best restaurants I have had the pleasure of visiting in Europe. Because it specializes in fish, we began with a herring dish and went on to the Chef's Plate (monkfish, sole, tuna and trout--each prepared perfectly, not an easy task given that fish has to be carefully cooked according to whether its fat or lean,...

Great address for fine dining in Dresden, especially fish. Had four-course day-menu, worth a visit. From our table nice view into the kitchen and the hard working and professional kitchenstaff. Despite genuine attempt by one staffer to serve adequately, most attention by the staff, including the floormanager was rather surpisingly focussed werving solely one table with regular (?) and rather...

In a beautifully restored building, the restaurant has a modern look and feel. The food is creative and top quality. I thought the prices were very reasonable considering. The fish could not be more fresh. They will do it anyway you like. I had an appetizer of tuna done 3 ways and an entree of monkfish prepared two ways and... More

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
