What a surprise! Beautiful location & sleek decoration, perfect service, a good selection of wines and the fish dishes are excellent. Interesting deserts - try the granite. Kastenmeiers is one of the top restaurants in Dresden. ABSOLUTELY RECOMMENDED

We had reservations at Kastenmeier's, based on a NY Times review. My husband is especially fond of sea bream or Dorade Royale. He ordered it grilled, although it can also be prepared baked in salt. The meal was so good we went back the next evening! We tried the Chef's fish sampler and also the Wiener Schnitzel- all very well... More

As a lone diner, I was finding it a little awkward going in to a restaurant alone. In fact,it's intimidating, especially when, in some establishments, they take it upon themselves to assume you simply must be with someone, and so they ignore you until that "someone' appears (yes, I am female). In the end, I thought, I will book this... More

Kastenmeiers is a famous fine dining restaurant specialising in seafood. It is located in Dresden in the Palais Kurlander not far from the Frauenkirche. Our hosts in Dresden took us there for a special treat on our last night. The first impression is that this restaurant is indeed special, being in such a stunning building. There is an indoors and...

We had a very pleasant evening here. We were served by three different staff, two of whom were excellent and friendly but one who seemed to look on us as a bother. This was a bit of a damper. The food is very well prepared. It is sometimes surprising such as it's bouillabaisse which turned out to be a white... More

The setting of this restaurant absolutely stunning: a very modern interior in the historic Kurländer Palace. There is also an indoor patio where some tables were also dressed. I had 6 excellent Fine de Claire oysters (in fact 7, because I received an extra one because one had already lost its sea water) while my wife received a disgusting lobster... More

Overall excellent place to have a meal. Food quality was excellent. Service superb. Staff very professional and attentive... Not that chatty though but good in an efficient way. Was very impressed with the food quality and service. Food preparation was very good and looked very appetising. Highly recommended if you are near here. Happy eating

The setting at the Kurländer Palais is great, the interior ambiance is nice, but we dined outside in their interior courtyard, which was delightful. The food was excellent, but I still remember the olive oil and balsamic vinegar - ask where they're from, you'll be surprised. i enjoyed immensely the crepes suzette for dessert.

Thank Juan F
