Description: El Rodizio – a Latin American restaurant and steakhouse rolled into one – we indulge you with Portuguese, Brazilian and Mexican specialities. Rodizio is, of course, the main concept, but our menu also offers interesting dishes for other guests who aren’t looking to eat so much. From typical Brazilian feijoadas or Portuguese espetadas – spits grilled on lava stones -, to enchiladas, fajitas and other treats, we’ve got something to suit everyone’s (including vegetarians’) tastes. Added to this is a classic steak menu with beef fillets, rump steaks and entrecotes. The meat comes exclusively from Argentina – and is cut to the gross weight requested by you in the order. The steaks are prepared on a lava-stone grill, giving them an unmistakable flavour – a MUST for any meat lover. The jungest highlight is our dry aged beef, which we are aging in our special fridge after this we cut it in different steak types. So you will find T - Bone Steak, Porterhouse Steak or a Prime Rib.

Really good steakhouse. I was on a buisiness trip to Dresden and wanted a good steak. My dish was really good and tasty (a Rump steak with vegetables and fries). Would definately visit the place again

We visited Dresden in December and happened across El Rodizio...what a stunning restaurant! Service was exceptional.... although we did get a hard time for pronouncing the waiters name incorrectly ;-) Stefan! Food was top notch with the steak being one of the best I've ever had! Even on the South African Rand the meal was affordable and we would highly recommend this place! Its conveniently situated...and don't miss out on a glass of gluhwein on the pavement if you have to wait for your table!

From the moment you walk in the door, you feel a warm and friendly vibe. Very welcoming.

The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was great and good value for money. The steaks are superb - definitely worth trying.

The restaurant is centrally located and easy to get to.

Dresden took me by surprise - beautiful city. El Rodizio held up it's side of the bargain by being a pleasant surprise too.

radeberger beer was Vladimir Putins favourite beer when he was a KGB agent in Dresden. (Thats what wikipedias says anyway) At El Rodizio they serve it in an elegant glass, along with your steak and its a great local beer.
So the steak was gooked on the grill, I asked for medium and thats exactly what I got.
Well cooked, good service and a great selection!
I did try their chilli con carne as a starter, it wasnt bad, but to me lacked taste, and definately couldnt feel any chilli, so i would stick to their steaks which are great.
Two issues:
1) the steak is cooked on a real grill, and so comes with a slightly charred exterior, (thats how its supposed to come) but, if thats not your thing, ntake it into account.
2) its not cheap. Food in Dresden isnt expensive, and this restraunt is probably around the high price range for dresden.
E.G: ( chilli cone carne + 400gram entrecote + beer + 10%tip = 55euro)

Worth a visit if you are looking for a good steak in dresden.

Parents know it: eating out with kids, even more if they are toddlers, can be really challenging. But the experience could be easier or more difficult depending on the place. I would say the food was ok and prices were also good, but what I really liked of this place was the service and the extra attention they gave to the kids. If you are looking for a place to have lunch with the family while visiting Dresden, this is a very good option.
