This was a great little spot for dinner. It's in the basement of the old armory so the theme is medieval. They have both a German and an English menu and most of the servers spoke English. The prices were reasonable and the food was delicious. I would recommend making a reservation as it was very busy.

I have been here at least four times with guests from out of town. They all liked it very much. I really like the atmosphere and the "buskers" who come to the tables when the food is being prepared are a really cool idea in my opinion. I don't particularly like Saxon food myself but I won't let that influence... More

We ate outside , but after walking around the inside I wish we had eaten inside as it was really fun inside and also since it is on the outside edge of the fussgangerzone it lacks the people watching fun of more centrally located cafes. The food was good but not as nice as the ambiance.

Couldn't say of the food, as we left because of the staff's attitude.....We sat and the waiter throwed us the menus, but had to wait to order at least 10minutes, and nobody came to ask. In addition to this, we had no chance to seat in the front room(it was raining hard and cold day, so no way for its... More

Located next to the "Frauenkirche" and under "Coselpalais" this is a typical German restaurant. Although they have an English version of their website, they were amazed that we spoke English. At first it was a 10 minute wait for menu and then another 20 minutes for order. The food was on the brink and as example sauce was prepared with... More

We have been there with two of us. The service was not attentive and slow even for the drinks they had to come twice. The waiting time for the food was acceptable, the portions have been reasonable and okay for a touristy place. Pricing was very fair.

I would recommend PulverTurm for the atmosphere. The decor inside the restaurant and the band visiting all the tables/taking requests was great. The service was fast and friendly. The food was ok, I think it would have been a lot better if it wasn't so salty.

This is one of the gem restaurants of Dresden. The food that I had was authentic Saxony. The outdoor seating across from the historic Frauenkirche was breathtaking at night. An overall wonderful experience.

The restaurant is below street level in a restored cellar but has outdoor seating as well. The menu features a lot of pork in a variety of preparations. The grilled suckling pig and Schweinhaxe are both excellent, served with sauerkraut and potato dumpling in quantities that we could not finish. There are a small number of non-pork dishes and vegetarians... More
