The meal is very good and the view of the river valley is very beautiful. See if you are lucky to get a balcony table (and it's not windy).

For me, it is a must go, specially if you are not staying in the city for too long and take the hop-on hop-off bus.
But, if you are in a hurry you can just go in there and take a look at the view and maybe grab some cake slices or ice cream (it was not required to have a meal at the time I've been there).
If you want to have a meal, take your time, the service takes a bit to assist you since the pleasant atmosphere deserves that you take a while to enjoy it. And the plates are very beautifully presented.
Just a final info, we were lucky to have a very nice local elder couple on a table beside ours and we had a very pleasant chat.

I had been recommended Cafe Luisenhof by a friend but wasn't prepared for the helpful, friendly staff and the delicious meal. The view is amazing, all of Dresden is spread out from the windows of this multi-level restaurant. Make sure you take the lovely funicular railway up and down, unless you are going for dinner/sunset - it's an extra treat!

Walked here from Schillerplatz over the Blue Wunder bridge and then took the small little railway from Kornerplatz up the steep hill. The hotel is right across the road from the train station -- you can't miss it. We just had coffee and cake -- which was great. The view is stunning -- you can see a vast sweep of the Elbe river with all of Dresden before you. Beautiful. The lady who owned the apartment we had rented for the week told us she always took her guests there when she had visitors, and I can fully see why!

Schumanns Luisenhof is definitely the restaurant with the best view over Dresden. If you have time enough, leave the car at the Hotel and go by tram with No. 11. Leave the tram at "Plattleite" and walk straight foreward following the signs "Standseilbahn". If you 're in the mood, have a look into the neighbouring steets, you can find a lot of interesting examples of architecture. But back to Luisenhof. Having reached the restaurant and the weather is fine, go and get a table on the balcony. Wow, is that a view. But don't forget to have a view into the menue, you will find something for every taste and the prices are quite normal for the location. We had a very tasty sundae, exactly the right thing with the hot weather we had at the beginning of May. The service is quick and friendly. Before you leave have a look at all the photos on the walls, some of the faces you will know.
Use teh opportunity and take the cable car down to the river Elbe. Cross the river using the "Blaues Wunder "bridge, at the "Schiller Platz" you will find a different tram heading towards Dresden City.

Our Farewell to Dresden Dinner took us via cable car and up the Weisser Hirsch hill to a lovely and family friendly Luisenhof restaurant overlooking Dresden and the river. We took a cab to the bottom of the hill and then rode up the cable car, which was fun. Our window table had a great view of the sun setting over Dresden. Book ahead on line with opentable.com for a window table. Play area off lobby for children. Service from our young man waiter was prompt and friendly. Our food was wonderful and plentiful. The menu has a large selection of German food and the food was prompt, hot and well presented. The price was reasonable for the quality. The atmosphere is casual with a large room with tables, with enough room between tables. It is a popular restaurant and it seemed there were many locals, which is a good sign. The location is a little out of the way in a residential district but worth the price of a cab and cable car. Don't forget to order some of the home made cookies to go. Have fun and relax.
