Delicious regional food. Potatoes 5 ways, but don't miss the rosti! Nice wine pairing. Just an absolutely adorable place.

On a Sunday the restaurant looked empty. We opened the door to the bar and were informed that the restaurant was upstairs. Once up stairs, the atmosphere was charming and quite intimate. No English Language menus or wine list, but our waitress was extremely helpful...and present. We ordered the Potato Soup which was rich, thick and wonderful. For a main we tried the Liver & Onions which was good although a bit over-cooked (we ordered medium). Our waitress recommended a red wine from Israel that was quite good. Overall an excellent experience at a reasonable price.More

The restaurant is located within a courtyard on Richard Wagner Platz – not on the street and not to be confused with Wagner’s Café. Upon entering the courtyard, bear to the left and open the door. Continue inside to the right and up the stairs...where you will come upon a charming, quiet, cozy, sophisticated venue. The waitress was delightful and eagerly translated the menu for me into English even though I was with two German friends. She also announced that SHE was the wine list – and recommended an excellent, full-bodied Malbec from Argentina “Don David,” at €6.80 a glass. Service was warm, attentive and unrushed. I had the rinderfilet – a filet of beef (€25) that was cooked as requested: á point – pink and juicy. It was accompanied by sautéed red and yellow peppers along with a small portion (as requested) of potato pancakes. Had I known they were so good I would have ordered an extra-large portion: they were tasty, crunchy and served piping hot. The kalbsleber (beef liver) came with a piquant apple-cabbage relish and a sizable portion of whipped potatoes (€20). A large dinner portion of a hearty potato soup was satisfying and arrived piping hot (€8.90). The total bill with a “rounding up” tip was €80 – a fraction of the cost of a comparable meal in New York City. I highly recommend this restaurant. Given its small size, a reservation is advised.More

Fantastic lunch in a tucked away courtyard. Food was excellent and our waitress knew all the wines and was able to recommended a lovely dry white wine. We were a mixed group including vegetarian and there was something for everyone. I could have happily eaten...just the bread and sour cream with onions, but all dishes were outstanding. I would recommend a visit.More

This small and off the beaten path restaurant offers Saxonian cuisine with new interpretations plus a taste of the world and innovative vegetarian food. They have good wine and know their wines. Certainly worth a visit.

This restaurant in the backhouse of a cafe with a similar name is great. Delicious food, good wine, and friendly service. Prices are acceptable, but not budget. Not to be confused with the Cafe at the front. The picture is of the cafe.

The small restaurant is in a frame house in abackyard. It has some outdoors tables. The staff ios very kind. Unfortunately, the kitchen is overstrained, easily, when the restaurant is fully occupied. You have to wait for a longer time. The wine list is rather...poor.More

We dined at Wagner's 2 weeks ago and found the food well- balanced and presented, quite a relief after having been exposed to various "schnitzel paradises" where a lot and greasy set the tone. Not so at Wagner's.It was delicous!

We had a three-course-dinner sitting in the lovely "freisitz": very tasty and very nice service! Go there and enjoy!

The food here is superb, and the waitress gave us an excellent wine recommendation. It's a small but smart dining room (we were on the first floor) and service was friendly despite it feeling a bit busy at the start of the night. A few...local specialities here along with some more classic, French-influenced dishes. Definitely worth a visit for a special night out in Leipzig.More
