Auerbachs.. a great find. Traditional Bier Keller. Full of locals so that is a good sign. Value food and great beer. After two nights of bland hotel food a welcome change.

Nice place to go. Nice food. A bit expensive, but it is worth going... Service is good too. After dinner (lunch) you can go upstairs to the Mephisto Cafe, perfect..!

We made our way here on the last night of our visit and it was very good. Great atmosphere, although very touristy, there was a nice buzz to the restaurant. The menu is very good and is exactly what you're looking for if you want an authentic Saxony meal. Service was also good - efficient and friendly.

Auerbachs Keller is a taste of old Saxony in Leipzig, as the food is wonderfully made, and we were told by our hosts, quite authentic. The atmosphere is perfect for Sauerbraten and dumplings, the service wonderful and architecture well worth a trip alone. Do not miss this wonderful place if you are visiting Leipzig.

lost our reservation but enough free seats anyway. Staff was very unfriendly and condescending, food was served very quickly but only average quality compared to the price. Not recommended in any way!

We both had the Christmas goose dinner and it was fabulous. The goose was roasted to perfection and the potato dumplings were absolutely the best we have ever eaten. Auerbach's Keller is a mainstay of Leipzig and while the prices are a bit high, the overall experience is worth it.
