The entrance from the Domplatz looks nothing much, but the rear of the restaurant opens up onto a terrace overlooking the rooftops and winding streets of Meissen. Hearty Saxon fare washed down with good local wine. Pork shank (pictured) excellent, with crunchy crackling - would have been 4 portions at home! Efficient service.

The view is indescribable -- the beauty of God's creation and the creativity of humankind blends well together... And that's before even mentioning the food. The food was delicious -- the menu shows German and English. You have to order straight from the menu as the wait staff did not speak English and I do not speak German! Thus, "customizing"... More

Besides the fabulous view from the terrace of this picturesque restaurant, the food is typical for the region and delicious! We come here each time we visit Meißen and absolutely love it.

We chose this restaurant by chance one lunchtime, after looking at the menu and seeing some 'specials' featuring matjes (herring). Having no idea what to expect, I ordered matjes lasagne. This turned out to a beautifully presented 'tower' of potato cakes, herring, salad and beetroot, topped off with smoked salmon on horseradish sauce. The best dish I have ever eaten... More

The location is magnificent - near the Albrechrsburg castle, overlooking the old town of Meissen. The prices, surprisingly, are very fair. My wife had a trout with boiled potatoes and horseradish and I enjoyed a Saxon goulash in a rye bread bowl. The food was exceptional, the staff very friendly and we left a generous tip. The spirit of old... More

We hiked up the steps to this restaurant because we heard they served traditional Saxon food that is more authentic than the places we found in Dresden. We ordered house light beer which was great. For lunch we had the Saxon potato soup (huge serving, free refill and only 6, 20) and the pork leg platter. The soup was wonderful,... More

Stayed in Meissen on a business trip with no dinner plans and found Domkeller on Tripadvisor. It's a bit of a walk up to the dome, but worth it, not only for the restaurant. Since we had no reservations, we couldn't get a seat in the area with a view. Even withhout view, the restaurant is nice. The building is... More

This place is awesome. Traveling with my father, we chose Meissen for a day trip from Berlin (a nice 1.75 hour drive from Berlin on the autobahn). We pulled up to the town with no plans or expectations and I looked for the best restaurant in town and boy did they deliver. You absolutely must get a table on the... More
