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

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
