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

Very good food and great atmosphere! We both had the suckling pig and it was delicious. There was a guy entertaining the tables with cars tricks, and live music.

Because my family wanted to try some "traditional" German dishes, so I brought them here for a lunch break. We ordered several meaty dishes, which turned out to be surprisingly good. The meat was neatly prepared and the service was rapid and attentive. I do have one complain: the mobile reception was so poor down there and there was no... More

After a walking tour of Dresden we went to the PulverTurm for a group dinner. The location is excellent and the restaurant has been cleverly integrated into the ruins of the tower. As we walked to our table the suckling pig on the spit roast caught my eye. The food and beer were excellent and the staff were attentive and... More

Located in the centre, in the historical side of Dresden just next to the impressive chairch of Our Lady. Ideal for groups of tourists, with outdoor- sitting at Summer, but the inside is more interesting as is very traditionally decorated. The food we had, was also the traditional snitchel with potatos and carrots, but was tasty. They served us traditional... More

Although sort of a theme restaurant, it does so in an authentic and genuine way. Not annoying at all! And the food is freshly made and great, so definitely a recommendation.

Visited 12.03.2014 I visited the restaurant with colleagues whilst on a business trip, we had walked around the center of Dresden and whilst looking at multi faceted church I saw the vivid blue light and the old style cannon, this drew us in to the PulverTrum (Powder Tower) as used for cannons. When inside, it's all very medieval or tries... More

The location is fantastic, the food is good and the beer is tasty. If the sevice can be improved a bit, then the place is really excellent. The staff is friendly but the service was rather slow.

It was a big mistake to go to this restaurant. I think that the restaurant is very truistic. We had dirty table. It was first minus. Second minus was service. We were waiting long time for the food. They brought us main course. We told that we had ordered also soups. The man told us you want the soup ????... More
