It serves really good food. Beautiful view to the "theaterplatz". Waited for too long to get the food...

“not recommended at all”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

Service was awful and probably the worst I have ever come across in Europe.
My mum ordered a salad and requested for no vinegar as she could not eat anything sour due to health reasons.
The waiter made a very bad face at us and reluctantly took her order.

The customer before us were also complaining to us about the slow and poor service as we were taking the table.
And so was the customer sitting next to us, though she was complaining to the waiter about the food and service in German.

Food was mediocre at best, not worth putting up with such lousy service.

“Friendly "cafe" atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

We went with a large group and were all delighted with this restaurant. Many in our party went back again the following night. It is not quite as good as the Kastenmeirs fish restaurant but was considerably cheaper at 100 euros per couple. I had pumpkin soup followed by venison and both were near perfect. Service was good and staff friendly.

We would definitely go here again if we return to Dresden.

“Excellent lunch and dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

Had a lunch and a dinner here and was very impressed. Lunch was had indoors (blowing outside) and the food and service were excellent. I had the home smoked fillet of pike with Dijon mustard sauce, sauerkraut and mashed potatoes washed down with an excellent pilsener. I did not have bookings for dinner but arrived early and got a table no problem. I had the angler fish special and followed that up with the chocolate mousse. The waitress suggested a Riesling with the fish and a grappa with dessert, both excellent suggestions. On both occasions the service was friendly and professional, and staff tried to understand my poor German and then swapped to English for me. There are English translations on the menu. The food came at a good rate without long waits but both times it wasn't very busy. There were 4 waitstaff getting ready for the evening dinner service so it shouldn't have been a problem.

I was very impressed with the quality of the food. Servings were not large but sufficient if you just wanted a light meal, or you could have starters and/or dessert if you wanted more. Bread and butter came with the meals.Values was reasonable considering the quality of the food. The pike was E15.50, the angler fish was E25.00. Wine by the glass ranged from E6.50 to E12.50.
