“Excellent traditional cuisine”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

Our best traditional cuisine experience in Dresden was at this restaurant. Nicely priced, great service and perfect location. If you are new to the area and if you are brave enough, try their "pfanne", which comes with a little bit of everything that is traditional. Just be sure to be really hungry.

“Excellent German Cuisine”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

I was staying for a few nights in Dresden and picked the Freiberger Schankhaus based entirely on the menu as I had no internet access available. I can only say that I was very lucky to find such an excellent place. The food was superb, the service was excellent and the restaurant itself is very nice. I only speak a little German, but the staff were friendly and helpful. A highly recommended place to eat if you're ever in Dresden.

“Great and lively restaurant in an unbeatable location!”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

Beautiful restaurant located right in the Neumarkt (the plaza around the Frauenkirche) next to the stunning Steigenberger Hotel de Saxe, you can't ask for a more romantic setting. Not sure exactly how the regular food is here as we were here for a family reunion and occupied the private room on the second floor. The buffet dinner was quite good with soup, veggies, meats and everything in between.

There's also outside seating during the day which is great to enjoy the view and soak in the beauty of the city.

“Very good value for this money”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

We wanted to have lunch in 1900 but it looked ugly from outside like some canteen.
So we were looking for different and cheaper rest. Then I found this in my travel guide.
It was cheaper, calmer than 1900. I found it was suitable for couples cause the atmospehre was romantic. The staff was friendly and helpful.
We could choose a specialities of regional cuisine. We chose fish and sauerbraten. It was delicious.
It is situated in the center at Neumarkt next to Frauenkirche.

“Fantastic Saxon Food and Drinks”
Reviewed November 30, 2011

Everything we had was delicious and reasonably priced. The atmosphere was great. My husband and I don't normally revisit restaurants in places we tour, but we would definitely go back to this restaurant if we visit Dresden again.
