“My favourite Leipzig restaurant”
Reviewed November 23, 2011

This is slightly outside of the central Leipzig beat but well worth the trip! As a result its busy with local Leipzigers and the atmosphere is welcoming, cheerful and relaxed. Its based on the site of the old rail station that used the serve the Southern part of Germany and beyond. If you're looking for a friendly restaurant with great local food and beer this is the place to go. The food is plentiful, well cooked and presented. I had the Knusprige Schweinehaxe which translated means a crispy leg of pork - amazing. My guests loved their choices too and we all had an amaizing evening there. Service was quick, friendly as well as being unobtrusive/ You have to try the local Leipziger Gose beer which has a unique taste as they add coriander during the brewing process.

“Hearty Saxon/Bavarian food with beer brewed on site”
Reviewed May 6, 2011

Huge portions of typical local cuisine. Nothing too exciting or unusual, but good at what it does.

“Great Beer, Good Food”
Reviewed February 23, 2011

My husband and I like to try different beers, so we came here to try Gose, which is only brewed in Leipzig. We took the tram to the proper place, but were worried that the restaurant was closed because there is a big fence in front of the old train station due to construction. We walked around a bit and found the entrance, and it was very much open. We were seated immediately, but told if we wanted food the wait would take an hour because they were so busy. We decided to wait. The beer was fantastic! It is similar in style to a Berliner Weisse, but with more balance and less acidity. The food was typical German food and of good quality, but not memorable. The staff was friendly, offered us English menus, but were not overly attentive. Worth a visit for the beer alone!
