This historic restaurant attracts all the visitors of the city. Though it is huge it is fast always full. The food is good, the service average.

Had a great meal in this very atmospheric restaurant. The special of the day was roasted boar, which they had done in a very traditional German manner. And to perfection. Service OK, but not fantastic. Reservation is needed, at least in December.

Such an experience. Hugely historic yet delicious place to eat, and drink. The architecture and wood-panelled walls are wonderful. Advisable to reserve if going on a weekend evening because it got booked up quickly on the December weekend we were there

We where looking for a place to go to dinner and decided to go to Auerbachs. We are glad we did. The place was a little challenging for us to find but only because we where looking up instead of down :). Once we got in we really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was very good as well. Definitely... More

Several friends and family and I visited Auerbachs Keller on a busy Saturday night in December and despite being fully booked, still managed to accommodate for 7 of us which was great news as, having eaten there once before, I was keen to show the place to my friends and family who hadn't. The staff were very friendly and their... More

We enjoyed a nice traditional dinner in the Goethe Stube, a historic cellar where Goethe got the inspiration to write Faust. The statue of Mephisto and Faust are at the entrance of the cellar. The Goethe cellar was built in 1530.

Nice restaurant with nice friendly service. Who help you even when.you.did not made a reservation. We had different dishes and all were very good. If you are in Leipzig and need a diversity in foods go here. Nice atmosphere as well in a very big cellar underground but you don't have the feeling you are underground.

My son and daughter in law suggested ate here as it is known as the place in Goethe's book Faust that students sold their souls to the devil - and we weren't disappointed. It is in a cellar, large and beautifully decorated - full of atmosphere. There is an extensive menu, also available in English which helps, and we chose... More

My German xolleague booked thus restayrant. It is based in a cellar (keller) and the myth is that Goethe got his (visual) inspiration for his famous Goethe story. The atmosphere is truly German: wooden, long tables as if you are visiting a beer cellar :) I ordered deer with Apfelrotkohl. Delicious meal! And a big portion too so I was... More

This famous restaurant is worth a visit. The food is typical German style and the quality was good. The atmosphere and feel of this place can't be matched anywhere else, you really are sitting in a world recognised historical place. The service was average, neither rude nor friendly. The restaurant has become a little touristy and sometimes feels like it... More
