I went here with my husband for a nice adult time out and the food was over-all very good. It is one of the most tastefull Carpaccio I have had. The pesto on that was so nice.My husband enjoyed his Mustard eggs and Haxe so much, and the only thing not great at all was unfortunately the schnitzel. It had... More

The worst I have seen during my traveling around Europe 2 hours waiting to have a steak without any taste, that you can have in any other restaurant in ten minutes Service absolutely unprofessional No excuse!

Recommended by our hotel, we came here to sample German food! We had a very nice evening, with schnitzel and sausage with the schnitzel in particular being absolutely huge! The food was plentiful and tasty and throughout most of our meal there was something going on in an adjoining room - perhaps with a private party - that looked highly... More

Have eaten in quite a few similar restaurants in various cities around Germany. This was one of the better ones and managed to combine the feel of an old style beer cellar with a modern restaurant. Food was good, staff friendly & experience positive.

Very enjoyable. Nice ambience, separate room for our group. Very attentive waiters with free flowing wine. The meal was surprisingly good (steak potatoes and green beans) as was the desert ( vanilla mouse with strawberrys). A nice place!

Our visit here was on our third evening in Leipzig and the previous two dinners had been much the same - slow cooked, great labour, etc. Here we found something with a little refinement and greater care in preparation and presentation of the food. The slightly inflated price was worth it for very competent service and great food.
