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.

We had dinner at the Sophienkeller restaurant with friends in mid September... the restaurant is in a cellar (keller), but is very large and open, with split-level seating... the décor is a mix of medieval to eighteenth century, and the wait staff wear period clothing (thematic, but not campy)... the food is good, traditional Saxony fare... the staff were very...

It's more about the atmosphere and ambience here than food or drink, though they are very good as well. The service is superb and you get a good Saxon experience.

This restaurant is right in the centre of Dresden and is in a cellar. It is very large with quite a lot of big tables which you may have to share. The setting and the food is very typically German and helpings are large.

Just pass by Bäckerei Möbius into Sophienstrasse and you will find the entrance to this basement restaurant opposite the Zwinger museum building. If you cannot manage the stairs there is a lift that you are welcome to use together with the other garbage that’s been put in there. (The postal... More

We stopped for an early, light lunch before beginning our city tour. The restaurant is well placed on a main route near the main tourist attractions. The avocado dip with local breads is to be thoroughly recommended, but don't waste your money on adding olives (not fresh) or cheese (over-processed and rubbery) All the lunches our group had were delicious...

Whether with a large group or small, this is a typical medieval cellar restaurant with shared tables, excellent food, and period entertainment with a bit of history thrown in. For our group, after breads and spreads at our table, dinner was a buffet with a roast suckling pig carved as we passed in qeue and filled our plates with dumplings... More
