Regional cuisine, very heavy on meat -- but if that's ok for you, the food is very good. Great atmosphere (inside it looked equally nice, but we were outside at a large wooden table under our own little roof in the beer garden -- perfect...More

We had dinner at the alten Dessauer. It is a greatly renovated brewery in a city which was heavy damaged by the war bombings . All the food was freshly made and we loved the cuisine

We had a late lunch. The beers were good as you would expect in a Brauhaus. We schnitzel with cheese and berries. Taste was ok although I would prefer a classic schnitzel better. Friendly service and a beautiful garden.

We had an enjoyable evening outside. The locally brewed beers are good and the food correct. Whatever you order, the simple plates are tasteful and cheap. Service was friendly and English menus where available. Probably the best place in Dessau.
