“Tourist-y but still great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Most people who take a guided tour of Leipzig will stop at Auerbach's, known for its connection with Goethe. We tried it for dinner, and it was excellent. Delicious German cuisine and beer, good service and unique atmosphere.

“Solid German night out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

It is hard to immagine a more Germanic dining experience:- cellar restaurant built to last millenia; gamey food that needs a good schnapps afterwards (less challenging food also available); scenes from Goethe cover the walls; lovely examples of Deutsches Reinheitsgebot biers. Go on! You owe it to yourself!

“Overrated and expensive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

This is a 'fancy' restaurant which has little if anything to do with the history you may be searching for. But if you want to spend a bundle on food and say you were there, don't blame me for warning you that there are better places to spend your money.

“Great meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

This was a really great place to eat. Wide menu. We ate what we thought were local foods and wine. Ambience lovely and staff very friendly. Good value.
