Nice Food, Great Atmosphere and Great View

Had Dinner with colleagues. Wide variety of dishes and drinks, both local and international. Dishes were nicely served and were just enough for dinner. Place had nice, light, atmosphere, with great view from the upper balcony. All in all, recommended if you're in Giessen.

The Dach-Cafe is very recommendable. We were here for a business dinner. The staff reserved a private table for us in the corner. There are two areas: a Cafe and a Restaurant. 14th Level, with nice view over Giessen (which is not such an exciting city). 20 minutes walk from the Hauptbahnhof plus good parking facilities, because the premise is...

A good place to eat as the food seems decent and consistent. Definitely one of the hippest places in Giessen to go. During warmer days it is very nice to sit out on the balcony to see the views especially at sunset and into the night. The service is friendly enough though be aware as the night goes on and...

Cappuccino wasn't coffee, but milk with a sense of coffee. The sweet was sour, not due to a fine marmelade, but due to the many days in fridge. Tables dirty and staff not caring about it. You have to be patient to order and get your order. Only the view was quite good, but not good enough to get us... More

The setting at the highest building of downtown Giessen allows a panorama view over what is considered one of the ugliest cities in Germany. The selection of cakes and fine cooking reveals that there are actually nice sites to this town.

We were here for business trip, and hotel was just a few minutes walk away, so were here every morning. Coffee was great and their selection of desserts are amazing! My husband tried different cakes and it wasn't too sugary but all seemed fresh. We've only been to their ground coffee place, but never tried the restaurant. Only complaint: there's... More

Nice place for dancing, cool music and an amazing atmosphere. I prefer going there on friday nights or on the weekends; for having several drinks with friends and for dancing.

The lift on the ground floor takes you to the 15th floor to the rooftop of one of the highest buildings in Giessen(which is a very small city in middle giessen) When you enter the restaurant you get sort of a hectic atmosphere with loud conversations and dishes clanking from the kitchen, which is semi-open for everyone who would like...

This restaurant/cafe has such a nice ambient with a great view. They could improve a lot on variety of dishes (for example, they have only one and very expensive meat dish) and service can sometimes be bad. But, there I ate a good pizza. In conclusion, place with a great potential, but still has lots of space to improve....

I used to go to the Dach Café as a child and couldn't wait to see it again. They have made it smaller inside and there is now a bar/dance area next to the restaurant. The crowd there were all 19-27-ish. I asked my cousin about the change and they said they no longer go because it has changed so... More
