Right in the heart of the Altstadt, the location and decor are inviting, the menu is extensive and the price is very acceptable. Our group of 20 persons all choose "a la carte", choosing a variety of starters, mains and desserts. Not one single complaint. Excluding drinks, which were very fairly priced anyway, the three course meal averaged €24 per... More

The Lunch was really tasty, we had Matjesy with potatoes and pork knuckle with potatoe dumpling, both meals were very tasty. The staff was really friendly. I was very good choice!

I actually enjoyed the Altmarktkeller so much that I visited twice during my visit to Dresden. The menu is extensive and reasonably priced. I took the schnitzel on my first visit, which was delicious and not too big. If I'm ever back in Dresden, I will definitely be eating here again!

In the final days of September 2016, my wife and I had a good dinner at this restaurant. It was during a rather windy and rainy evening and we decided to seat in the cellar area rather than on the street. The place has an "old Germany" type of ambience. The waitresses wear traditional German dresses and the service was... More

Our last night in Germany and I still hadn't had Sauerbraten. Comments pointed to this place as a good choice. It was a Wednesday night and there were many diners but plenty of room for us to sit down right away. We sat at the far end away from the singing--on this night mostly a birthday celebration apparently. I found... More

We ate here during the German Reunification holiday when the city was very busy and we landed here by chance and good luck - it was cool and wet outside and the restaurant was close to the church where we had attended a concert. However, it was a very good choice - it had a good buzz and although busy,... More

In the sum,er season you can sit outside on the square, but I recomend decending the stairs down to the old columed cellar. Here in rustic German surroundings you can choose from many local and classic German dishes and drink local and czhech beers. We had the classic schweinhaxe, a delicious pork knuckle with crispy rind and juicy meat, served... More

Went down into the cellar which was nicely lit and had a great atmosphere. Staff spoke good English and were attentive and pleasant. Had the pretzel hot from the oven with cheese dip. Very nice especially when I brushed off the salt crystals which were too much for me. Had the classic of pig knuckle which came with a dark... More

My brother had recommended this restaurant so if it was a disappointment words would be said. Happily we are still talking this is another excellent eaterie in the heart of the city. There is outside seating, inevitably, but for an authentic experience go downstairs. We had reserved a table the first time we ate there but there was no need.... More
