The presentation of the meals was in jars which was quite unique. The food was delicious and fresh. My partner had the veal ragout which was so amazing and I had the beet risotto which was also tasty. We had bread/dip to share and the carrot, ginger salad. One glass of wine and one beer for 34euro was good value.... More

Sure this place reminded me of my erstwhile neighborhood in Brooklyn with it charming artsy shabby chic look and real unusual food. We started with a beer and and a dip in a jar made if parsley pine nuts and cheese. At first too leafy for me but then it magically grew onto me.Next I was asked to try their... More

Went to investigate this place after reading the reviews on TA. We were staying at the Swisshotel so decided to pull out the map and take a walk over the bridge. I would suggest taking the tram if you were not up for a bit of a walk. The area is very different over there, but some quaint feel about... More

We sought this out based on a NY Times write-up. It was our favorite meal of our Berlin/Dresden trip. Our favorite dishes were the noodles with onions, the curry wurst, the pickled herring, and the sweet potatoes. The food comes in jars, which is cute. Most importantly though, everything was delicious! Also, the courtyard location is lovely and prices were... More

“What’s a typical German national dish, Tony?, I am being asked very often when traveling. This is quite impossible to answer as German cuisine is more a jigsaw of regional tastes then “bratwurst” or “sauerkraut”. Lila Soße manages successfully to bring traditional dishes with high quality ingredients in a young entrepreneur’l environment with motivated service staff closer to the guest.... More

Lila Sosse bills itself as serving innovative cuisine with a unique presentation, but they seem trapped by the jars. First, bring a pad because the two seating options are the largest collection of uncomfortable chairs in Dresden or a long wooden bench (seat and back). I don’t mind shabby chic, but this goes too far. Now the jars: my wife... More

Great location - an alternative, artsy area away from old city tourism. Very interesting restaurant - reasonable prices, informal setting, diverse and good food with most food presented in unusual way - in glass jars!

I come from a mixed German, Hungarian and Serbian family. Among other things, this means we take our food dead serious. Meet in particular. To cut the chase - if my mother and both of my grandmothers cared for new tendencies in cousine and were willing to detour from recepies of their grandmothers - they will cook like this. Tasty,...
