Coshy restaurant with 5 rooms and Outdoor places in GDR-style. Local and Czechian food and beer. Good prices and very friendly staff. Part of the restaurant mile in the south region of Leipzig.

We have visited the place for super around 20h30. Quite full and good ambience. The decoration is singular, even bizzare but fun. All courses where big and good. Specially the roulade and the duck! We had time...and we needed it as the staff where friendly...More

Old school communist food and atmosphere--like a fun museum! Really unique, and the traditional food was great. You won't find another place like this--it's worth it even if you just grab a cocktail and appetizer.

Lively, friendly, welcoming with wonderful service, what more could one ask for. Retro decor, a museum to a past which was full of turmoil, the sensation is as if you were sat at the table in someone’s home, cosy and warm. The food is a...More

... we enjoyed dinner in Kollektiv, which brings you back to the old style communist times re decoration and ambiente - the food, however, is Bohemian, also called Czech - so expect lots of meat and sauce and wurst. Will be back, great beer, too.

This restaurant advertises as having "old East German Standbys". I don't know that we saw a lot of that on the menu (since I don't know what an "old East German Standby" would be), but they do serve a mean Czech goulash. Friendly service, English...More

Had heard a lot of this place so I decided to give it a shot. Definitely worth it. The food is fine (had the Rindsrouladen and it was a good portion), the beer is a great choice, but the best thing about the place is...More

Really incredible food. Lots of options with standard German fare, as well as some dishes with interesting twists that were couched as “Eastern German” variants. Everything was expertly prepared, and well-plated. Environment was cool, outfitted in GDR kitsch – great place for a drink too....More

A restaurant in a residential area, built in what appears to be the basement and the mezzanine floor of a house. A certain non-German waitress, very polite, helped us explaining some dishes and choosing them. The interior of the restaurant is very original: tables, chairs...More
