Dresden restaurants offer a varied cuisine to take care of all your gastronomic needs.
Marinated Braised Beef
This beef dish is a Saxon specialty. Be sure to taste some for yourself in Dresden.
Quarkkeulchen are a kind of sweet potato pancake. They are sure to leave your mouth watering for more. ;-)
Try this Saxon staple potato soup during your stay and you’ll have something to tell when you com back home.
The Saxon take on cheesecake will surely delight those with a sweet tooth and fondness for cake.
Christsollen, or simply Stollen, is a doughy pastry filled with dried fruits like raisins or currants — and lots of butter. If you are in town around the holidays, don’t miss this Dresden dessert!
Top Dresden Restaurants
Here’s a small selection of my favorite Dresden restaurants…
Caneletto (Große Meissner Straße 15)
This Dresden restaurant is affiliated with the Westin hotel chain. You can find it smack in the center of the city.
Caneletto’s menu features Italian favorites as well as some interesting twists. The lobster and beef tournedos are among their specialties.
With such a prime location and a gourmet menu, you can bet that you’ll need a reservation here. Be sure to wear your nicer clothes too. The dress code is “business dressy.” ;-)
Opernrestaurant (Theaterplatz 2)
After a classy night out on the town, you would do well to stop by the Opernrestaurant. It’s located right at the Opera House, making it even more perfect if you have tickets to an opera performance.
Here you will find some Saxon culinary favorites fused with an international flair. You can sample such delectable dishes as roasted veal or braised venison and chicken.
For this sophisticated Dresden restaurant, reservations are recommended.
Luisenhof (Bergbahnstraße 8)
Another popular Dresden restaurant is the Luisenhof. The Luisenhof offers outdoor dining in the warmer months, and beautiful views of the surrounding Elbe Valley. But any time of year is a good time to eat here.
You’ll be treated to an outstanding Saxon meal, accompanied by a fine selection of wine and other drinks.
The dress code is business casual, and once again, reservations are recommended.
