Very good diner in the Historische Weinstuben

At the bottom of the stairs from the we have to choose between the "Grossen Keller" and the "Historische Weinstuben". We went for the second and we have not been disappointed: pretty good food, albeit a bit pricey, served in a nice set-up by a polite and efficient staff.

This place is a must for everybody in Leipzig who has read (and enjoyed) Faust, so we went for lunch. The lunch menu was surprisingly good and tasty, if not entirely cheap. Around noon the place was virtually empty and only few guests were there apart from us. Service was extremely efficient and as friendly as you would expect.

Been traveling extensively in Germany for well over twenty years, and this is the first time anyone has written on the bottom of a bill "tip not included", circling the VAT tax and marking it "tax" as though I might confuse that for the tip. Food was good, but I will not recommend a restaurant with dishonest help!!!!!

Underground venue. Good location. .Com food was average. Chicken breast was cooked ok but lacked flavour. Can't even remember starter and desert was passable. atmosphere was average and stag could be a bit more friendly. I think they must be used to tourists / groups. I would try some other places near by such as miss marple

Don't bother giving them any tip. It's east Germany, what would you expect?

Traditional German food served in an uebertraditional setting: Goethe discusses the place in his epic "Faust." Had the rouladen, which was very tasty. Worthy trying for the epic setting.

This is an underground beer hall style restaurant. The food is great, traditional German comfort food. Serving sizes are generous and reasonably priced. We enjoyed the food so much we went back twice. Our only gripe was the service, which was a bit unfriendly and brisk. One of the waitresses made us feel a bit like an imposition on her... More

This is by far one of the best restuarants in Leipzig. The four times we have been in Leipzig, we seem to end up here. We have always been able to get in without reservations, though if visiting during a major event, reservations are recommended.
