“A Landmark Restaurant”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

This restaurant is a landmark. It consists of a huge cellar room. The food is (surprisingly) excellent. Be sure to try it.

Touristy with tired waiters but a must see and do in Leipzig for its incredible history. Never been to a 400 year old restaurant before!

“Evening meal”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

They where not really interested in serving us an evening meal and I could not see a single smile in the faces of the staff. The meal was average and the "pudding" or desert a catastrophy of a half raw stuffed apple and a bit of ice cream

“Great atmosphere for some typical Saxon fare”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

Famous as a drinking place for Goethe (one of about 5,217 of them), this restaurant has been in existence for around 500 years and offers a number of rooms of different sizes, although the Grosser Keller (large cellar) is the main restaurant in the establishment. The food is typical German with a Saxon twist with many choices of meat, fish and salad (not for serious eaters of German cuisine). Prices are higher than average but not ridiculous. I was disappointed that the beer choices are quite limited, including only one Hefeweizen (wheat beer) being Schöfferhofer, a standard choice for Leipzig. Service is good (prompt and professional) and this place is definitely worth a visit of you're looking for a real "German" experience without it being kitsch.
