We sat inside and the décor was innovative and rather playful. We loved it, especially my kids. We had an exceptional meal here. The food was delicious in portions of a good size. The staff was friendly and attentive and the prices reasonable.

Situated in the cellar of Taschenbergpalais, Sophienkeller offers typical Saxon food in baroque settings. The food is traditional and rich in a guilty way.

Great German experience, big and noisy with quirky decor. Lots of menu choices - pork and duck main features. Good gluten free choices when asked. Servers in traditional costumes and very cheeky. A really fun night out.
