Was refused a glass of tap water after ordering cake and coffee on a hot summer’s day. The waiter was nice but apparently instructed to do so by management. If you think you can make an extra €2 charging people for water you certainly won’t...More

Travelling solo, and not speaking German, this was the only restaurant in Leipzig where the lovely women who were waitressing made me actually feel welcome & comfortable. They were kind, but also excellent at their job. Couple this with homely German-style food, and it's a...More

We had been recommended to try out the food in this historical atmospheric Altbau building with masonry walls and beamed ceilings. Although it is in a touristy area, it is not geared to tourists as they offer typical German Saschen classic dishes and even old...More

Could not be wrong. We treated ourselves to the finest food. The waitress was helpful in taking our order. Service was as one would expect in a state university.

We were looking for a nice, medium priced place for local and regional fare close to the market square. We were not dissappointed. My wife and I had Sauerbraten with Red Cabbage and Potato dumplings. Though the wait almost drained our wine, it was delicious!...More

Had dinner here last night. Ordered the asparagus soup, but thought it was overly creamy so no taste of asparagus found. Also ordered the escallop which I enjoyed, and was to much to eat, but the extra order of red cabbage was very salty. Would...More
