to enter the dining hall you have to cross in front of the open kitchen with some corresponding odors that follow you more or less to the table. The waiters are attentive and helpful. The menu is mainly seafood, the wine list is extensive. The platters hace a good size, the qualitiy of the food was not more than average, prices are at the upper limit compared to other places in the eastern part of Germany..It took quite long to be served, esspecially between the first and the second platter.
With coffee we recieved some handcrafted chocolates, each priced with 2 Euros, but quite ordinary and not exquisit as you would expect for such a price. They are better avoided.

We had a wonderful meal in this beautiful setting on a recent rainy Sunday evening. Just wanted to mention-We noticed that all of the other male diners were wearing jackets. Haven't encountered this degree of formality in quite a while in DC, NYC or other European cities. My husband was wearing a very nice black v-neck sweater and dress pants, but felt this was why perhaps we were placed at a table way in the far back corner?

One of the best restaurants in Dresden. We had an excellent and affordable seafood feast after ballet night at Semper Opera. Set within few original walls of royal palace (reconstructed like many other buildings in Dresden), the restaurant offers a cosy and elegant atmosphere. The service was great. The food was delightful. Try a set menu!

This is a first rate restaurant which specializes in fish and other seafood. It is in the heart of this historic city. It is not inexpensive but good value for money. It is in a beautiful building, the service was impeccable. The appetizers and main courses were memorable though our choice of crepes suzette was not as good as we have had before. The wine list was extensive and reasonably priced.

We went to Kastenmeiers for a 65th birthday dinner and had the most wonderful time (we stayed for four hours!).
The restaurant is right in the middle of the old town, near the Frauenkirche, housed in "Dresden's last ruin" (only renovated in the last decade).
We paid about EUR 100 per person for a truly exceptional meal (4 courses and wine) - less than we had expected. The setting inside the Kurland Palais was splendid, but what made the visit really worthwhile was the staff - even on a Saturday night, the barman took time to show off his wine collection and let us choose; the waitress took real pride to recount the story of the Palais and elaborated on the available menu choices; and other passing waiters stopped more than once to show off the amazing fish concoctions on their way from the kitchen to their respective tables. It was clear that everybody was having fun working there, and took pride in sharing this with their guests.
Would always recommend this for a special occasion.

Oh, and by the way, Kastenmeiers do business lunches for an incredible EUR 9.90 during the week (and 19.90 on weekends).
