It was a beautiful night. Wedding anniversary with wife, but/and kids. Kids were delighted by the welcome alcohol-free cocktail, and final desserts. My wife was enchanted by the light in the courtyard and by the appetizers. I was very well impressed by the kind service.

We too found this restaurant on Tripadvisor and decided to make a booking online from Australia months ago when planning our holiday. They responded right away which was a positive sign but then we would expect that from Germans! The first person we met when we walked through the door was Herr Kastenmeier himself, a friendly, charming and imposing man... More

This is a spectacular restaurant through a very imposing entrance and in impressive rooms. The focus is fish , well prepared ( watch out for flambés !) but servings a little on the less than generous side. Good wine list with local choices at reasonable prices, and friendly service.

I have been to this restaurant at least a half of dozen times. In fact, it is a regular for me when I am in Dresden. Last night was no exception to what I have begun to expect. The staff is very friendly and went out of there way to ensure all was above par. I had my usual Spaghetti... More

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
