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.

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 Leipzig

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.
