Revolutionary, experimental, bold, Great!

It's location is idyllic. Tucked away and just off the main food street in the student quarter. The decor is functionally minimalist. The menu is small. The food is great and service is warm and friendly. Large portions, very reasonably priced. The place was almost full on a Sunday evening. We had... read more

Having read some of the reviews I had high expectations of our meal at Lila Sosse. I was expecting inventive, creative food served in a unique way. First impressions.......well, the first main course I ordered had run out. Really? At 6pm? And surely the point of using a chalk board is that you can rub dishes out when they are... More

First of all, I would like to say this restaurant is not difficult to find. It is on a main thoroughfare, and the address which is clearly marked leads to a courtyard. The sign for the restaurant is quite apparent. I really liked the design--warm, cozy and with a sense of space. I was a solo diner and felt welcome.... More

You just can't go to Dresden without eating there! It is amazing! The food is local and delicious, it is served in a very original way and the service is just excellent.

I have had dinner at Lila Soße several times now and I can recommend it to anyone who visits Dresden! The menu is as creative as it is delicious and the staff is very friendly. It is also in one of my favorite parts of town which makes a trip there even more worth your while, though the restaurant itself... More

Visited this restaurant with a friend after reading about it on the NY Times 36 Hours recommendations. The menu was interesting and modern, a change from normal German cuisine. We had a great bottle of wine and tried some of the 'tapas' - beetroot and goats cheese salad, a lentil chili salad, spaetzle, and beetroot linguine. The food was tasty... More

In this restaurant you will find some interesseting meals. The menue is short, but you won't miss a thing. There are some special meals which will be served in preserving jars. You can look at the cold ones before you order. This will give you a first impression what to expect. The food is tasty and fresh. It is mostly... More

Simply put, this was one of the most accomplished meals I've eaten in years, all for just over 20 euros per head including drinks. I made reservations for the 14th of Feb which was straightforward via email. On arrival we were greeted and shown to a treat table. The place has real character and was a very pleasant environment.

I am not an expert in new german cuisine - i am only considering myself as a no-fool expert in valuing what is worth its value - and Lilla Sosse is highly worth for what it offers. First of all lets start from the very basics: the waiter was an extremely polite and helpful person. We arrived there on a... More

Positively surprised by young German Kitchen style food. Experience this restaurant for a new and refreshing take on German cuisine. Only negative would be the state of the bathrooms.
