Perfect view, good cousine

Perfect views over the city and the river if you sit on the terrace. The restaurant is very big, so sometimes the service is not the best, however the food is very good. Located next to the top station of funicular.

We were with friends who had never been to Dresden before, but a close friend who lives in Dresden kindly spared us 3 hrs of his precious time to give the four of us a ' guided ' tour with of course insider tips , one of which was a visit to the Cafe-Restuarant Luisenof. Our friends were over the... More

As a transport geek, I can't resist travelling on funucular railways, and here was no exception. We had unlimited travel for a week so it was a no-brainer. At the top is the delightful Luisenhof, with commanding southerly views over the Elbe back towards Dresden. The restaurant shares the same vista. Service was friendly and the food beautifully presented. Recommended,... More

We traveled to Dresden and the Luisenhof as part of a guided tour of Germany. The restaurant is wonderful - great food and even better view of Dresden both before and after dark. You can climb up to the restaurant or take the funicular to the restaurant, which was fun. Well worth the trip!

My friends and I visited this wonderful place with high expectations, often a dangerous practice and frequently leading to disappointment! Not here. I can honestly report we were beyond delighted. Arriving via funicular railway we were greeted, in English, and led through to the spectacular terrace offering jaw dropping panoramic views over Dresden, Saxony and beyond. Our brilliant, perfect English... More

After a lot of touring, our German relatives took us here for Coffee and Cake. Wow, I was impressed. First of all the ride up on the funicular (tram) was fun.The restaurant is across the street from the quant station and the surrounding neighborhood is beautiful with unusual architecture. We only stopped for dessert—what a wonderful selection of German pastries—really... More

I grew up in Germany. Believe me when I say this place is traditional. The Luisenhof has the charme of the typical German old school Café Restaurant where droves of Germans flock on Sundays for their beloved Kaffee and Kuchen. You stand at the counter and pick your opulent, huge piece of cake and have it delivered to your table... More

A business colleague was surprised when I called and said I was in the area, and he surprised me with a delightful dinner at Luisenhof's. The location is marvelous near the award winning Dresden Schwebebahn, hillside railway. The location is in a charming neighborhood of Dresden, and shouldn't be missed on any trip. The view from the balcony is spectacular... More

We were staying at a hotel nearby and visiting a friend who lives in Dresden. She recommended the place, which was walkable from our hotel. As we were led to our window side table, I noticed the breathtaking view of the city. The formal side of the restaurant was white linen, fresh flowers, etc. Menu offered many Saxon specialties, including... More
