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.
A huge menu, German fare, English menu available. Absolutely delicious food. Highly recommend.More
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
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

We look forward to welcoming you to the "Großer Keller" and "Historische Weinstuben" restaurants and to the Mephisto Bar in Leipzig's Mädler Passage in the very heart of the city. Enjoy our hospitality in historically unique surroundings and sample a range of finest quality cuisine.
We want you to feel completely relaxed when you visit us and hope that you will look back on your visit with fond memories.
In order to ensure this, we shall be dispensing entirely with credit card payment as of July 2015. You may be puzzled by this decision at first as it is quite an unusual step for a gastronomy outfit as established as Auerbachs Keller. However, we believe you will appreciate our decision when you find out about why we felt it necessary: according to the police, hundreds of guests fell victim to a "cyber attack" some time ago, in which computer criminals infiltrated our cash register system and obtained credit card information. Those affected faced a great deal of inconvenience, fortunately however, annoying as this may be, no direct financial loss was incurred.
In the meantime we have extensively optimised our cash register system with the aid of IT experts, however even these experts are unable to rule out the possibility of a similar attack happening again in the future. We were alarmed and hugely annoyed to hear this, which is why we decided to completely dispense with credit card payment in future. As usual, food and drinks can still be paid for by cash, EC/Maestro card, advance payment or invoice.
We look forward to welcoming you in future and will continue to do everything in our means to make sure you enjoy your time here at Auerbachs Keller.
