Why have dinner anywhere else? Eat at Auerbachs Keller for the history and fame alone.
The beautiful building, interesting decor is another reason to go- it is one of the most interesting restaurants I've ever been to.
There is a good atmosphere, it was very busy even on a weekday so definitely book if you are planning to go at the weekend. The menu has a lot of variety; some typical German dishes and some international dishes too. I was expecting the food to be substandard after reading other reviews but it was actually really nice. I was quite impressed. Ordered the market vegetable gratin and Mediterranean vegetables both of which I recommend. The dishes were on average 11 euros each- not too expensive for mains.
The service by waiters and waitresses wasn't great, my only criticism.
To get there go to the alley way sign posted Auerbachs Keller. It's right by the Goethe statute and Bach museum- you can't miss it. Inside the alley there's loads of fancy shops, and go down the stairs where there is a sign saying Auerbachs Keller Leipzig- that's the restaurant.
