The Kunsthof-passage location is really cool, the food was excellent and the service very nice as well. Greater attention to details, everything fresh, a menu of the day is also available (and we chose from that). We had salmon fillet on potato-cake (delicious) and mushrooms risotto. Prices in line with german average.

Lila Sosse is a very nice restaurant away from the tourist trail. Innovative German/European dishes served in cups. The atmosphere is relaxed, friendly & Young. Recommended.

I stumbled on this place randomly as I was just meandering thru the area and it looked cool. and I was hungry. I was pleasantly surprised at how good these "tapas" turned out to be. glad I had a chance to try such a variety. good wine too and excellent service. an eye opener about the possibilities of German cuisine...

Pretty good spot. Very nice staff. We were the only English speaking people here. Food was a little below high expectations but still good, just not amazing like I was expecting

Was so excited to try this restaurant. Unfortunately, the dinner was a great dissapointment. Expected creative fresh food, found it to be the opposite. Ordered the tomato parsley salad - tomatoes were not fresh, think they were marinated and refridgerated too long. Also ordered red beet and goat cheese salad, and that was exactly what it was, just those 2... More

Found this place by accident and what a find it was. The food tasted amazing. The fish (Steinbeißer) came with beautifully sautéed chard and polenta and the sides which accompanied the suckling pig were just as tasty. The freshly made rhubarb lemonade was as superb as were the puddings (rhubarb tiramisu and gooseberry panna cotta). The price for the quality... More

Spent a few days in Dresden recently and as you do, did research on best places to eat and found some great reviews on Lila Sosse so had to try. I am so glad we did! We decided to go for the mason jars filled with different delicious foods - I think I lost count after 6! Every single jar... More

Whenever we have house guests in Dresden, we take them to lila soße because it perfectly mixes traditional German cuisine with fresh and creative ideas to create dishes that are delicious, unique, and always a delight. Last night we went with 6 people and even though the place was packed when we arrived (around 7:30 pm), the service was totally... More

I really liked the atmosphere in this place, price was good and the service was really excellent but I was less wowed by the food. Some things just didn't work, the coffee and mango combination, for example. Or oxtail in a jar. I might still go back and try some of the other things on the menu though.

Very nice atmosphere, friendly service and the idea of German tapas does the trick. It works. All dishes were simple but the focus was on high quality basic products. This is why the concept is working. The different dishes create an overall harmony despite being completely different (curry sausage, lentils, matjes fish, spätzle, meat balls etc.). The desert menu could... More
