A change from the usual

We wanted a change from our usual choice of Italian, while in Dresden, so opted for this traditional restaurant. Great freshly cooked breads, wonderful suckling pig (we saw it being spit roasted at 10am and booked for the evening!). Also pleasant to sit outside, with just a glass of wine, as... read more

We wanted a change from our usual choice of Italian, while in Dresden, so opted for this traditional restaurant. Great freshly cooked breads, wonderful suckling pig (we saw it being spit roasted at 10am and booked for the evening!). Also pleasant to sit outside, with just a glass of wine, as slightly off busy Neumarkt.

The food here is really good and authentic. We were there on the weekend and of course it was during the Christmas market season so to say it was packed is an understatement. The place is huge and they take you for what seems like forever to a table. We waited too long to get reservations, so we had terrible... More

Nice authentic German restaurant with friendly staff. The food is "ok", reasonably priced and in a great location. The reason im only given three stars is because the food was not what we had hoped for. The meat in both our dishes was very dry, even with a sauce added.

A hot sunny Summer day on the ancient square outside was the ideal pitstop for tired visitors like ourselves. We had a nicely baked trout and a local beer while admiring the horse drawn carriages and ancient motor vehicles passing by. Inside is a veritable museum filled with 18th century paraphernalia and beautiful costumes. Also close is the Albertinum Museum... More

It's a nice restaurant serving good local food but with an interesting extra - it's in the old ruins of the city's powder tower (blown up centuries ago) with the staff wearing costumes from the 18th/19th century and minstrels coming round to your table to entertain. Definitely somewhere different and definitely worth a visit.

Spent 10 days in the Berlin to Dresden area and eating at the PulverTurm turned out to be the most memorable restaurant on the trip. Excellent German Saxon food prepared lightly and presented in excellent fashion. Helpful wait staff, the meal I had of traditional Brat, sauerkraut, and roasted potatoes was not on the English menu. Reasonable prices for the... More

A truly Saxon experience in the centre of Dresden - friendly waiters in folk costume, traditional live music, spit roast pigs, great local wine - and all in the vaults next to the mighty church flattened in the war and since re-built. We liked it so much we visited twice. Expect big portions and don't anticipate any light bites. Reasonably... More
