We ate here on a day trip to Dresden from Prague. Food was very good, although service was a bit slow. The view was terrific and we loved sitting outside. We had a pasta dish and it was very tasty. Powder room was in the building next door. It was through another restaurant and up a flight of stairs, clean,... More

The cafe has a strategic position with view of the river. The coffee however is really expensive and there is no wifi.

We went there (7 of us) fr lunch on 9th Aug. It had rained and so tables were wet. We asked them to clean the same but they were rude and said this is the best they can do inspite of the table remaining wet. They took ages to come to take our order or give cutlery. There were some... More

Location is picturesque. Good place to relax and see the view. However it was quite unfortunate that the food quality was below average. The service could do with a lot of improvements. Some areas where they did ok was the ice cream and the desserts. Other than that there are other restaurants nearby that was better and prices comparable. Would... More

We liked the view and the ambiance but the service was slow. I mean really slow to order, slow to service slow to pay. We left money on the table and left. Go around the corner to the alley full of other restaurants...unless you have a lot of time.

This is a great place to wait for those on the Dresden Walking Tour. The end is just beside the cafe'! The service is very good.

I had lunch on June 6 at 13:30h at this restaurant. I was at table 54. The restaurant attracts people because of its magnificent view of the Elbe. It took a long time for anyone to notice I was ready to order. Finally a young waitress came and I was able to place my order. She was very much in... More
