very atmospheric place with delicious cuisine. but I didn't like the small detail of Mephistopheles at the entrance. he is too funny and does not look like a clever character from Goethe's book

Auerbachs Keller is that famous due to its history and literary significance, of course, that you probably would have to visit to "tick it off the list" even if the food weren't any good. But, surprisingly enough, even though it is very large with a...steady stream of customers and large groups, service was personal, efficient, and the food of good quality. Also good beer.More

What a beautiful restaurant- great atmosphere. It is big and cavernous so very noisy as they get very busy so not ideal for intimate meals and those with hearing aids may struggle with the noise. Advice is to book ahead although in low season (as...we come out of the Pandemic there are not many visitors around) we were able to get a table. Interesting story and beautiful paintings. Food: A huge menu, German fare, English menu available. Absolutely delicious food. Highly recommend.More

This is a Saxon brasserie, renown because of its Faustian decor and links to Goethe. It is massive but but extremely efficient, and the food was definitely authentic and quite good value.

Made a reservation and had a lovey walk getting there. As the restaurant is “under ground” it is very hot inside. No A/C and not much air was circulating. The place wasn’t packed. But had a lot of tables filled by locals (tourists hadn’t made...it yet to Germany due to covid) Food was great. And they had a special dish for €14.50 which was very yummy and filling. Beer was good, but must I say that? It’s Germany after all. But again, we would have enjoyed it A LOT MORE if the place wasn’t so hot. We ate and left quickly for cooler weather outside.More

Best beers in Leipzig. Great old-world setting. Expansive dining halls. Immaculately preserved. I had the dark and the Gose. Both excellent. For dinner it was the Wild boar (Wildschwein). Perfectly cooked, with Rotkohl and Kartofelklößen. Excellent.

The historic dining, with beautiful atmosphere. The cuisine is classical German food. It was quite good, although for a place with such a long history I expected better and more authentic. The service, however, was subpar. Long wait, difficulty to get attention. It was a...bit pricy for what was offered, but definitely a must visit in LeipzigMore

Do you know Goethe's Faust? Have you seen the Devil? This restaurant has such a story you might think it's just a tourist trap. Not so! Most guests were locals partaking of good German food at a reasonable price. Local beer and wine was icing...on the cake. Don't forget to visit the Mephistopheles piano bar upstairs.More

Excellent place with a lot of history and great food. A truly traditional restaurant with great service. I love it!!!!!

Auerbach's Keller is a huge cellar with lovely vaulted ceiling and great murals depicting Faustian tales which gives it a lot of atmosphere. It is pretty touristy and quite busy - service is a bit off-hand, although the young woman looking after us was nice....The food is OK, but really you're coming here to say you've been here. Don't expect fine dining.More
