Wanted a rest during a biking tour and expected a straight cup of coffee, and perhaps a cake. Ordered, however, some sandwich plates and ice cream. Absolutely top class presentation and tastes! The glass case outside the entrance with some cakes gave no hint of the treasures on the meny. Interesting assortment of beverages i.a. chokolate drinks.

This is an amazing location.A Chinese style building in the Sansoucci Palace grounds. A fair walk from the Palace and the food is not Chinese but German.The menu is not large and the fresh seasonal variations are of course a delight. Its a niche speciality restaurant which gives you fine dining in a cosy atmosphere in the large royal park.If... More

We had a great lunch here. We ate outside on a warm day. Service wasn't the best, but wasn't the worst either, but the food was delicious. Highly recommend sampler (appetizer?) platter as an entree.

We went here on a cold November Sunday lunch, and it was packed. We were lucky to sit right down, but there were plenty of people arriving a little later that were turned away or hung around waiting for a seat. We had lunch, but lots of visitors were doing the "Kaffee und Kuchen" thing. My vegetarian ravioli dish wasn't... More

Food is excellent and comes quickly enough to allow time to visit all of the castles. I would give service an 8.5 out of 10. Funny thing that reserved tables get large wine glasses and different cutlery than tables for people without reservations. We arrived at 13:45 in a hurry to leave at 14:30 for Sanssouci. There was a nice... More

The building will draw you to the Drachenhaus but the food will make you want to return.Built as a home for a favourite soldier of Fredrich the Great , who became the gardener the building is flamboyant with dragons appearing on ever corner of the tower. There is an outside area where at lunch time there is a simple menu... More

An unique bulding set in the middle of Sanssouci Park, das Drachenhaus proved to be the ideal ice cream stop for we parched explorers. On the beautiful shady terrace we were greeted by a friendly if not very English speaking waitress and told to sit anywhere we liked. The menu boasted many treats from full lunches to afternoon teas, but... More

A lovely spot to eat outside in the park. Good choice of food and wine on the menu. Generous servings. A bit pricey, but really good. Great service.
