A Saxon treat

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... read more

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

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 sauerkraut and it came... 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
