The restaurant is located in a very nice and lively part of the city and is cozy and beautiful. The food is delicious (halloumi and tomato with chickpeas were amazing) and the waitress was super professional and very nice! It's not the cheapest place but it definitely worths a visit.

Friendly and good service with tasty food. I tried goat kidneys for starter and goat arms for main course both very tasty.

Hierschonessen was a wonderful culinary experience for me and my family. So much so that we have talked about it many times since. The menu changes on a regular basis and uses fresh seasonal ingredients. It provides a diverse range of different dishes to choose from along with a nice selection of wines. The service is also excellent. The food,... More

The quality of the meals has changed a lot, getting worse. All meals, beverage as well, became pretentious, expensive and ridiculous. Great names, but only qualiy on an average level. The wine list is also complicated, too. Sometimes the staff is very inappropriate and underperforming. In relation to the price in this restaurant we all expect an improved service. Lot... More

We liked the offered dishes at a very good quality and the good selection of (German) wines. The staff is very friendly. If the weather is fine, you can even enjoy your meal outside in the garden.

I ate dinner here with a colleague and some customers. We came here since the customers chose it. I would describe this as a bit more upscale traditional German/Austrian food and I believe the prices reflect this. I myself had the wiener schnitzel. This wasn't the gigantic schnitzel that I've gotten in some beer halls in Germany before. It was... More

We came to the restaurant after finding another (Villandry) closed or a private party. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The main restaurant area is simply decorated (in a rustic hunting lodge style?) and the staff are young and attentive. The real surprise was in the quality of the main dishes of respectively venison and veal. The boiled veal was a... More

We had a great dinner here! It was a nice summer evening, so sitting outside was very enjoyable and we didn't even need a reservation to get a table for four. The menu sounded absolutely delicious and our dishes all lived up to our high expectations. Food and drinks were all great, the service was very funny and considerate and... More

We had been advised that this area of Dresden had plenty of eating options. True, but many were bars and takeaways. We wandered into Hierschonessen as it had the word 'Restaurant' on the building and we were pleasantly surprised to find an outside eating area on the back deck which was perfect for the warm summer evening. The tables were... More
