Saxony cuisine by the Frauenchurch

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.

The food here is really good and authentic. We were there on the weekend and of course it was during the Christmas market season so to say it was packed is an understatement. The place is huge and they take you for what seems like forever to a table. We waited too long to get reservations, so we had terrible... More

Nice authentic German restaurant with friendly staff. The food is "ok", reasonably priced and in a great location. The reason im only given three stars is because the food was not what we had hoped for. The meat in both our dishes was very dry, even with a sauce added.

Thank Keith G
