“A super sea-food restaurant in the Dresden suburbs”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

I discovered this place quite by accident--it was within walking distance of my hotel (An der Rennbahn, which I have reviewed elsewhere). It's a seafood restaurant, an excellent one, run by young Matthias Schwindt, who hails from Rügen in the North Sea. The menu is extensive but also includes smaller plates if you don't feel like a big meal. I ordered perch-pike, which came with some delicious vegetables and small potato pancakes. The service was friendly and unobtrusive; it isn't a fancy place at all, just "gemütlich"--friendly and comfortable. In good weather there is a garden with tables and umbrellas; otherwise you eat in a vault-like underground room that looks like a movie set for "Pirates of the Caribbean". Even if you stay in Dresden's town center, which many tourists do, you can easily reach this place on the 1 or 2 tram, which is in itself a fun experience.
