Servers are dressed in typical costumes. The food was OK not the best Ive had. Price was reasonable very large restaurant. We (2) were able to get in just as the museums were closing without a reservation . Though we were told we would have to go much later than we wanted when we tried to get reservations.

Went with colleagues to this restaurant in Dresden. It's situated in the old part of town, next to the Zwinger, a famous landmark in Dresden. You have to go into a basement and the restaurant area is very uniquely arranged with different rooms and themes. The menu is available in German and English and offers traditional German dishes. The quality... More

This restaurant offers local specialities, it's situated in a traditional German cellar. I had samlet fish with vegetable linguine and cucumber salad, and it was quite good! My friend ordered grilled trout, but it was a bit difficult to eat because of the bones. Anyways, I enjoyed our lunch in Sophienkeller. It's a great place for German food and ambiance!

The "Keller" wich means basement is a typical german thing. Many city Halls have a "Ratskeller", a lot of these basements are historic vaulted places. They are and reamains however, rooms without a view. The typical fare served here is the "Gutbürgerliche Küche" (homestyle meals), the athmosphere is usually that of a beergarten, heimat muxic, waitresses in Dirndels but the... More

Traditional, tasty german food. Always nice to enjoy a meal under old vaults. No problem to get gluten free alternative at dinner. Serviceminded staff. A minstrel entertained us with his guitar and bagpipe.

This restaurant in the basement of a former church is awesome! The decor is very Old World German, the waitstaff are great, the food is to die for. Desert is a must.

As soon as you enter the place, you're immersed in a medieval atmosphère. The service is dressed in traditional cloths, the place is finely decorated in the same style and you have a guy playing and singing. Wooden tables and chairs and a quite simple furniture. The food is again very traditional but the quality is decent, if you consider... More

Grab your belt-the great, traditional German dishes abound. Boar, pork, wurst, potato balls, excellent beer, and in a comfortable, relaxed setting.

Decent yet not impressive. The home made bread is however definitely a plus. If you have never tried a typical saxon tavern, you may try it, or pick any other.
