Good German Cuisine

We were here for a meal early on new year's eve. The building is wonderful, full of pikes, polearms, flags and costumes. The food was plentiful and tasty and the service friendly.

This restaurant is situated just next to the Frauenkirche, just near the cannon. The interior is styled like gunpowder store (in fact it was if you believe the story of the owners) and a medieval war-chief headquarters - pretty in a word. The staff is dressed accordingly (historic Saxon dresses), they were polite and helpful (no rudeness or lack of... More

Food was flenty, also the service and atmosphere was good. But the taste wasn't that great. Just average. Main dishes was from 12 to 20euros, normalry 15euros. 한국에서 네이버보고 가시려는 분들은 실망하실거에요. 블로그에 뭘 그리 부풀렸는지. 서버가 친절하고 레스토랑 분위기 자체는 좋아요. 근데 뭐 별로 맛은 없어요. 메인이 제일 싼게 12유로 정도고 보통 15유로 쯤 하고 생맥이 500 한잔에 4-5유로...

Some of our tour group stopped in for lunch on a rather cool and wet day and were happy to get in from the cold. The service was friendly and prompt. The food was tasty and hot. I had a potato and sausage soup, delicious! We were given a basket of bread along with our meals and one was a... More

The setting is nice, although the Sophien Keller is nicer, but very similar menus. We ate here two times and the food was ok but not very good. Service was ok but not extraordinary. The first time we ordered the wrong things from the menu so we gave it a second try, but the quality of the food was similar,... More

The interior of the restaurant is quite interesting with the bricks from the previous building. The guy walking around with the accordion makes for a fun night. The food is authentic and you can get a massive pork knuckle! Food is good and I will be back next year.

Well we expected a bit more out of this visit. The staff was friendly and swift. But the food was just OK. The Rouladen were a bit dry and lacked more gravey and the red cabbage had to much clove to it. The steak au four was a bit bland and dry.

Dinner served in underground cellar. Very atmospheric. Medieval costumes, hearty german fare, and lots of singing to a wandering accordian player. If youwant a typical german evening, then this is highly recommended. Good choice of beers and great local desserts.

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.
