We went there multiple times and ordered different pasta dishes, which were great! Very creative dishes, which tasted really good. We especially liked the pasta and gnocchi​ casseroles. It was pretty quiet and only few other people where there, too, so it was great for having a conversation.

This place is pretty esp if you got the window seats and even the long leather bench across it offers a nice view over the main street of Dresden City Center. We, a troop of 6 adults and one todler girl, went there on Friday evening prior of our reservation a few hours before as we heard the venue is... More

We met up with an old friend of my traveling companion here at this restaurant, prior to a day of moving around New and Old Dresden. We sat outside, and availed ourselves of the brunch buffet. The buffet was okay---not bad but not great. More importantly, we were enjoying the company and the fact of being in Dresden. Pricing was... More

朝食目当てに10時に来ましたが、思っていたよりすいていました。小さめの朝食メニューでお腹一杯になったので、複数人で来たときに大きめのものを食べてみたいと思います。 I arrived there around 10, and I didn't find so many people. I was totally satisfolied with small braleakfast menu, so I'd like to try bigger ones when I'm back with more people.

It is my favourite food and meeting location to see friends and for my kids. Sometimes we have excellent breakfast and leave the kids for a while on the big public playground beside the MAX. Lunch & Dinner for all ages. Whatever you are wearing, you are welcome! Steaks are very good. At the nice bar you can finish an... More

We came across this restaurant on a Saturday night and liked the look of it as it was busy and appeared a bit more classy than some of the nearby pubs. The atmosphere was great, lots of locals just relaxing having a few drinks or some dinner (all probably in their early 30s). We shared an entree, had some delicious... More

We weren't able to find a place to have some lunch in this district - there were only donner-houses and indian places and this one looked better than anothers. And it was better - the staff were english-speaking, the food was ok.

Clearly one of the places to be in Dresden (new town): a very nice sexy bohemian atmosphere; we had a pasta lunch, that was good. So was the service, or even very good

We visited Dresden last month and went out to eat with my husband's cousin's family near their apartment. What a great little place. The park was a plus as the children could go play after they ate. Our dinners were ample and quite good. The waiter's English was very good and this is not a tourist's area. There were children's... More

We visited many cafe's/bars/restaurants during this trip and this one was without doubt our favourite. The ambience was just right, and the food and service always excellent. The staff are so attentive, they really take care of you, and always with a smile. They work hard and look after their customers. All of the food we had was very well... More
