First meal in Europe of a month long stay and it was wonderful. Not the absolutely best meal of the trip but right up there in the top 10. My spouse had the Roulade of beef, house wives style, with red cabbage and potatoes and I had the grilled suckling pig with a marjoram-mustard sauce, tasty... read more

We were invited to the PulverTurm by a friend on our first trip to Dresden, what an amazing atmosphere, all the staff were friendly and welcoming. The goose dripping was recommended for a starter which was excellent followed by the Hog roast. Combine this with a excellent wine, combined to make this a memorable evening. Highly recommended.

Just under the famous kirche we found this restaurant. In such a crowdy place it typically difficult to expect very high quality of meal, but Pulvertum is the exception it seems. Very good service and reasonable price + talented chief is very good combination. Chicken breast , trout and some ither fish fillet (hardly memorable name) were simply great! Very... More

We were a large group with a reservation and the dinner buffet. The meat was excellent, well prepared and good tasting. Part of the experience is also the kind of show the staff is presenting with their historic dresses, the musician walking around and motivating the guests to sing along. The service was a little bit slower than one would... More

First time visiting Dresden, enjoyed this very interesting location with a group of business colleagues and had a fun time. Food was above average, the atmosphere was medieval and very interesting but had too many new elements to feel really authentic. Enjoyed entertainment from a Saxony mistress/actress retelling tales from centuries ago.

I was born in Dresden and whenever I come back there to show the city to visiting friends we always enjoyed dinner at the Pulverturm restaurant. It used to be good food (Bohemian-Saxon cuisine), reasonable prices and a lot of entertainment. Over the years there has been a decline in quality however. The last time I went there, the food...

We were entertained by a magician and several musicians as we sat in the wonderful recreation of a historic Saxon dining room. Like everything else in central Dresden it's only recently been opened as the entire city was destroyed in 1945 so it's nowhere near as old as it appears. It has been done very well though. It was a... More

I have been here several times with guests from abroad - they always like it a lot (Food, atmosphere, etc.). Start with a walk at the SemperOper (just in case: car parking next to the Landtag), from there to Zwinger, Taschenberg Palais, Procession of the princess, Frauenkirche (a walk inside and to the top), Terrace at the Elbe, and then...

This was my third visit here with my German in-laws. Food was again excellent, great Saxony food and really tasty. The staff are very friendly and welcoming too, I had a small issue with my food (I requested different potatoes that what was on the Card) and it was swiftly rectified and they were extremely apologetic. Most staff speak multiple... More
